Rosemount Osteopathy was founded in 1992 by Fiona Davison who trained at the British School of Osteopathy in London, graduating in 1991. Starting out as a sole practitioner in the Garthdee area of the city she continued building up the practice until moving into the Rosemount area in 1997.
Fiona has now retired from treating patients but will continue to offer advice to existing patients by phone.
Vannin Bloch qualified from The College of Osteopaths in 2004. Vannin is a member of The Sutherland Society and has a specialist interest in the treatment of babies and children in addition to her work with adults. She joined Rosemount Osteopathy in 2005.
To qualify, an osteopath must study for four to five years for an undergraduate degree. This is similar to a medical degree, with more emphasis on anatomy and musculoskeletal medicine and includes more than a thousand hours of training in osteopathic techniques. By law, osteopaths must register with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). It is an offence for anyone to call themselves an osteopath if they are not registered. The British Medical Association’s guidance for general practitioners states that doctors can safely refer patients to osteopaths.
