Husband and wife Trevor & Jo Strutt run Bridgeham Clinic in Crawley. Trevor is a fourth-generation osteopath who trained with the late Mr John Wernham. In 2015 he was awarded Principal of the year by the Institute of osteopaths. Jo enjoyed a professional dance career in dance performing in London’s West End productions of Chicago and Fosse along with other engagements. They embrace functional movement and have been integrating osteopathy, Pilates, massage, acupuncture and wellbeing services within a clinical setting after training with Dr Brent Anderson from Polestar Pilates back in 2001.

Their love of learning and exploring the body has seen them continuing their education with Eric Franklin, Body Control Pilates, Linda Hartley’s Integrative Body Movement Therapy, Tanya Thompson from Of Course Online, Garuda with James D’Silva, Eyal Lederman, Joanne Elphinston, Julian Baker, Gray Cook and Professor Pavel Kolar. The Bridgeham patient pathway that Jo and Trevor and their team of practitioners implement daily, changes people’s movement patterns taking all ages and walks of life on a broken to brilliant journey. www.bridgeham.com.

Julian Baker has been a hands-on therapist for over 25 years. The founder of the European College of Bowen Studies, he has taught thousands of students The Bowen Technique, a non-invasive system of fascial release. He is the author of two books on Bowen and Fascia and has contributed hundreds of articles about bodywork, fascia, dissection and the human form.

A popular and sought after speaker, Julian has presented widely at conferences around the world and is on the organising committee of the British Fascia Symposium. Since 2006 he has been leading human dissection courses throughout the UK focusing on fascia and connective tissue structures, rather than standard anatomy.  From these studies, we are able to see that the traditional way of teaching how and why the body works needs adjustment and a shift in understanding.

His dissection classes aim to deepen the understanding of human movement, how we get injured or stuck and what happens to us when we do and to use this information to benefit the clients with whom we work. Julian’s dissection classes simplify and make the understanding of functional movement accessible and easy to understand.
