Pinal Patel

BSc. Ost. Med. CST-T

Pinal Patel qualified from The British College of Naturopathy and Osteopathy in 1996. She has been working from The Point of Health along side Hazel Spriggs and Laurent Heib for past 19 years and established her own practice in Wantage and Didcot in 2004 and now moved to Waddon, Croydon.

Pinal offers a wide range of osteopathic treatments from helping with newborn babies and pregnant mothers, as well as children, teenagers and adults right through to the elderly. Her work includes CranioSacral Therapy, baby massage and yoga. Pinal has trained in ear, nose and throat osteopathic techniques and regularly helps patients with TMJ, jaw, sinus and ear problems.

For last few years, Pinal has been working towards assisting young children who are prone to having problems with their teeth. If there is a lack of space in the mouth for the adult teeth to come through, a child might have to go through extensive treatment from a maxillofacial surgeon. In some instances, a tooth or teeth needs to be extracted and reconstruction surgery is required, to help expand their jaw bones to accommodate the adult teeth. Osteopathy and CranioSacral Therapy can greatly help people after extensive dental work, helping to realign the jaw bones and rebalance the body, to help prevent headaches and migraines following on from dental work.

Pinal continues to study and update her skills year on year.
