Sergi Casals Gutierrez New Cross Natural Therapy

Sergi is a Spanish-Catalan Osteopath who is very passionate for the body, wellbeing and alternative medicine. In 2018 he graduated from the University College of Osteopathy (UCO), former British School of Osteopathy (BSO) and has been living in London since 2016, where he is a registered Osteopath at the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) insured by the Institute of Osteopathy (iO). He is also a registered Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) Physiotherapist and has postgraduate trainings in Fascial Therapy and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy.

Sergi has recently taught as a clinic tutor at the UCO, where he mentored and provided clinical education to osteopathic students. In addition, he has also published research (Casals-Gutierrez & Abbey, 2020) at the International Journal of Osteopathic Medicine (IJOM), with title: Interoception, Mindfulness and Touch: A Meta-Review of functional MRI studies.

Sergi aims to ultimately understand the body from a direct felt experience. With the patient at the centre of this process, he encourages the release of tissue adaptations and compensations that have become overwhelmed due to how we live our lifes.

Within the philosophical tenets of Osteopathic medicine lay the understandings of structure-function and body-mind-spirit unity. These principles suggest that physical, psychological and spiritual/personal stressors -literally any situation in which our resources are surpassed or overwhelmed- are experiences that become patterned, stuck, imprinted in our physical bodies, but also expressed as psychological, emotional and spiritual/personal behavioural patterns.

These imprints can manifest in a myriad of ways including: not being able to relax, hypervigilance, holding tightness, tissue restriction, stiffness, heaviness, discomfort, pain, restlessness, dissociation, chronic fatigue, attentional deficits, learning difficulties, insomnia; but this is not an exhaustive list. In any case, in one way or another, the manifestation of these symptoms causes the individual to no longer experience the body as a safe place.

Sergi uses a varied spectrum of Osteopathic techniques such as Cranial, Visceral, Fascial, Functional and Structural techniques. These techniques are employed so that patients can relax and repose amid adversity and slowly learn to be guided by the direct sensory contact with the wisdom of the body, which support our health and healing through life, and evolve our personal processes.

Sessions are provided within a safe and calm atmosphere where patients can fully relax and express themselves, temporarily disconnect from the outside world and reconnect with the inner body. Treatments are tailored to you and your current situation as they are aimed to enhance your healing processes as a person.

Sergi is happy to offer treatments in English, Spanish or French. His first consultation costs £60 and the following treatments are £50 per session. Reduced prices for regular patients, patients with low economic income, black and ethnic minorities, elderly patients, students and families are open to consideration. If you would like to ask any questions or need some more information, please don't hesitate to contacting Sergi on 07522029951 or email scgosteopathy@gmail.com.
