Our Story

Ariana Torti

Naturopathic Osteopath, Laser Therapist and Deep Tissue Massage Therapist

Ariana came to holistic health because conventional 20th century medicine (allopathy) could not help with her chronic pain and fatigue syndrome labelled, as much as dismissed as, “fibromyalgia”. She retrained to support your health from the inside out. Ariana graduated with a Masters Degree in Osteopathy and Naturopathy from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in Hampstead, London. She won prizes in Visceral Osteopathy and Psychology. Her research project focused on the treatment of insomnia without medication, using osteopathy and hydrotherapy.

Qualifications

Post-graduate education

Ariana has continued with her professional development to specialise in the Functional Medicine approach. She completed the Applying Functional Medicine in the Clinical Field (AFMCP™-UK) training in 2018 and the Gastrointestinal Functional Medicine training in 2019. Ariana is a Member of the Institute of Functional Medicine. Ariana completed her certification as a K Laser Therapist in 2021. She also trained in Cranial Osteopathy from 2016 to 2018 and completed two modules in Osteopathy in the Cranial Field through the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy.

Ariana is dedicated to Continual Professional Development and has so far exceeded the amount of CPD hours required by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC is the regulator who protects the public and authorises adequately qualified and ensured osteopaths to practise legally in the UK).

Specialist interest in chronic conditions

Ariana has a keen interest in supporting patients who suffer with challenging conditions that require patience and understanding. These include fibromyalgia, arthritis, cancer, bladder or prostate issues and erectile dysfunction. She favours a multi-disciplinary approach.

For example, pain may be trapped or originate from your bowels, so lifestyle changes, nutrition advice and laser therapy all have a part to play in addressing long-term conditions which affect your quality of life.

Ariana originally trained as a secondary school teacher. She then worked for international companies where she was responsible for corporate training, project management and account management. Her experience of stress in the workplace gives her insight on how best to support individuals who wish to balance health goals with their lifestyle. She has a polished, yet personable approach that helps relax nervous individuals and generates long-term loyalty amongst her returning patients.

She favours comprehensive consultations and thorough treatments; her sessions time reflect her approach.

She enjoys alternative rock music, history, literature, yoga and Pilates. She is a native French speaker and consultations may also be carried out in French as required.
