Osteopathic Treatment is just the beginning
In my Notting Hill Studio I will use osteopathic treatment and a range of other techniques that will reduce the acute symptoms.
The initial treatment will aim to reduce pain by reducing stress to the affected tissues and bringing down inflammation. Osteopathy is a great diagnostic tool and offers manipulative techniques to resolve stubborn movement problems.
Pilates and other movement work form part of a strength and flexibility programme that is essential for tissue health and injury prevention.
Other treatments that I offer include medical acupuncture, massage, vibration training, Kinesio Taping, vibration training and instrument assisted soft tissue. Combining these techniques gives faster and better results than using a single modality in isolation. I will select the combination that works best for you.

Pilates offers stability, strength and flexibility. Better posture helps with symptom relief and long-term protection.

I can always trust Idris to sort out my aches and pains.
If I wake up with back pain, but need to get on with my day, it’s the first call I make.
Idris is Always raising the bar and I learn something new in each lesson.
Even after 12 years, he always finds new ways to challenge my body.
After a serious knee injury I was unable to dance and my thigh muscle completely shut down. It didn’t respond to months of regular physio. The muscle activity only started to improve after treatment with Idris and the Gyrotonic® exercise he gave me.
Through the rotational and twisting movements, Gyrotonic® offers a unique solution to spinal stiffness and gives dynamic strength.
Deep Tissue Massage
Massage restores knotted and achy muscles by improving blood flow and clearing waste products.
Applied Functional Science
Applied Functional Science gives a detailed analysis of posture and movement. It will give clues to which body structure is not working optimally and how best to solve the problem.
Natural Moves: Pilates and Osteopathy in Notting Hill
Natural Moves studio has been providing an osteopathy and Pilates service to the Ladbroke Grove and Notting Hill area for over 12 years
During this period the treatments I’ve offered have evolved, because it is important to me to keep up to date with trends in research, injury management and fitness.
One technique I’ve recently added is functional biomechanics, which is a method of analysing and working the body in a way that replicates natural movements like lunging, squatting, jumping, pulling and pushing. Traditional methods often work a muscle in isolation, whereas this treatment involves compound movements.
Diet is also extremely important for your physical health. I am also happy to advise on what kind of changes you can make to your eating habits to get the body shape you want.
An Holistic Approach in Notting Hill
At my Notting Hill studio you can be assured of an osteopathic treatment that’s tailor-made for you and brings in the latest tried and tested techniques.
I can help you with:
- Restore optimal pain-free movement as naturally and quickly as possible.
- Rejuvenate yourself with a holistic exercise regime that promises a more supple, toned and youthful body.
- Get a flatter stomach and tone up problem areas like glutes, inner thighs and upper arms.
- Retain your youthful posture – look better in your clothes and out of them.
- Combat age related changes like rounded shoulders, stooping or loss of muscle tone.
- Maximise bone density with weight-bearing and impact exercises.
Kinesio taping supports painful and inflamed tissues in the early stages of injury.
Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue helps break down scar tissue so muscles and ligaments can heal.
Vibration will give a kick-start to lazy muscles and can offer almost instant relief from some types of back pain.
