About us – Philip Wise BSc (Hons) Osteopathy, D.O. (Registered Osteopath)
About us – Philip Wise is a qualified Osteopath who founded his Maidstone Osteopathic clinic in 2006.
His speciality is the treatment of neck, back, shoulder pain, muscle spasm, sciatica & ‘trapped’ nerves. Phil also has excellent results with treating most other pain causing conditions, with both young & old able to benefit. This can include other causes of pain such as elbow & wrist pain, hip, knee & ankle pain, as well as some types of headaches (such as tension headaches) & irritable bowel problems.
Phil has helped many maternity patients & post partum mums with the treatment of postural problems & musculo-skeletal pain. He treats these problems using either the ‘Body Adjustment’, (gentle joint articulations & muscle stretching) or Craniosacral technique.
Whatever technique choice, his main focus is getting you on the road to recovery.
Phil graduated from the prestigious European School of Osteopathy in Boxley, near Maidstone with a BSc Honours degree in 2006.
Phil worked at the European School of Osteopathy (Honours & Masters) undergraduate degree program from 2006 until 2019. Whilst there, he educated & examined students from various walks of life, from those straight out of college, to those already qualified. Many were already Doctors, Chiropractors, Neurologists & Physiotherapists, all looking to learn effective, natural, pain remedies. He also spent a short time working at the London School of Osteopathy teaching Classical Osteopathy.
About us – Svetlana Wise M.D, D.O, A.O.M (Registered Acupuncturist & Baks Osteopathy Cranial Therapist)
The most advanced of our Cranial practitioners, Svetlana Wise, gained her medical degree in Russia (1994). She then later visited the U.K to study Osteopathy (at the European School of Osteopathy (ESO) (grad.2007)). Here, she learnt directly from some of the world’s best Cranial Osteopathy practitioners.
Cranial Osteopathy Training
Her Cranial Osteopathy training was done here at the ESO in Boxley, Kent. Osteopath Susan Turner D.O, & Trustee of the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy was among her esteemed supervisors.
Svetlana was also taught by the wonderful & much loved Piers Chandler D.O, MSCC. He was another internationally renowned Osteopath, sadly no longer with us.
Classical Osteopathy Training
A further 2 years of part-time postgraduate training was also undertaken at the JW College of Classical Osteopathy in Maidstone. Her Osteopathy Practice was based in St Petersburg, Russia until 2010.
Svetlana spent 3 years working as the Head of Education and as an Osteopath at the Russian Academy of Osteopathic Medicine in Saint Petersburg, Russia. She was instrumental in the success of the two clinics adult & children’s clinics. They continue to be integral to the continued growth of the Academy.
Whilst in Saint Petersburg (Russia), she treated anyone who was suffering pain. This ranged from the new born baby & maternity patient to the older generation using Osteopathy & Cranio-Sacral Therapy.
Svetlana quickly became highly recommended by her patients for her natural skill, kind nature & sound advice. All of which assisted them in leading a more pain free life.
Svetlana has spent many years studying various courses of Acupuncture. During this time she has learnt about distal acupuncture, medical acupuncture, auricular acupuncture & scalp acupuncture.
She has now gained a Masters Degree in Advanced Oriental Medicine as well as practising as an Acupuncturist & Craniosacral Therapist at Baks. As a part of her Masters degree, she had her paper published in a peer review journal. You can read it yourself from the academic website. In case you don’t like reading academic papers, we wrote a blog about it, which simplifies the main points.
Svetlana is registered with the Acupuncture Society of Professional Oriental Therapists & the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council, (CNHC) in the U.K.
Svetlana specialises in the treatment of headaches, migraines, neck pain & facial pain. She can also help to cope with stress, or can help you recover after stressful events & stressful life situations.
