Angelo Zanfardino

Angelo graduated from the British School of Osteopathy (now University College of Osteopathy) with a Master’s degree in Osteopathy.  He has extensive experience and a diverse skill set to effectively treat various injuries and dysfunctions of the Musculo-skeletal system, always aiming for a cure rather than just treatment.

Like many who work in the therapeutic field, Angelo’s journey began with his own injury. Whilst dancing professionally, he suffered a severe ankle injury. It left him unable to perform and required several years of difficult post-surgical rehabilitation. This led him to a profound analysis of body movement, in order to avoid further injury and be able to dance again. He explored the biomechanics of movement applied to dance technique, integrating that with study of Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis methods, becoming a qualified teacher in both methods in 2007. Gyrotonic is an internationally renowned exercising system, which improves the flexibility and strength of limbs, at the same time helping to prevent further injury. While used by dancers as support for their dance training and technique, it’s of significant benefit to any active individual, from fitness enthusiasts to older adults, as well as excellent for physical rehabilitation. Angelo is currently treating and training dancers from the Royal Ballet, English National Ballet and Trinity Laban, as well as individuals in a wide range of occupations whose physical and mental wellbeing benefits from regular Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis training.

 Besides his qualifications as an Osteopath and Gyrotonic teacher, Angelo also holds post-graduate qualifications in Cranial Osteopathy, Visceral Osteopathy, Pilates, Craniosacral therapy, and soon he will become the first UK-based Master ambassador of the BodyCode System, another dance training rehab support technique.

His personal journey of injury and rehabilitation influenced Angelo’s dedication to perfection in movement, which now fuels his passion for assisting patients in reclaiming pain-free movement, helping them achieve a range of movement they hadn’t expected to regain.
