David Turner

B.Ost  |  Registered Osteopath

David started life as a mechanical engineer and ended up living and working abroad for several years.

The internationally renowned BSO was founded in 1917 and is the oldest and largest school in the UK, it has now become the University College of Osteopathy.

He has previously worked as a part of an Osteopathic team within the NHS and currently combines his work at The Pentagon Clinic with running his own practice at his local GP medical centre. He enjoys using a wide range of techniques to work with patients of all ages according to need and preference and is particularly interested in gentle visceral and functional approaches to treatment aimed at speeding up our innate healing mechanisms, and has completed postgraduate training in working with the involuntary mechanism – ‘cranial’ osteopathy – amongst other regular CPD activities.
