“My goal as an osteopath is to ensure each patient is treated as an individual, and that they feel reassured in the knowledge that they are in safe hands. It is always an open, friendly dialogue with my patients, and their health, happiness and safety is paramount to all I do."
"Whether I’m working in education or treating patients, I harness my years of knowledge built up from my own training and wealth of experience, and use it all the deliver the best outcome I can."
Dan Warin BSc (Hons) Ost Med. PGCE
– Senior Osteopath
Dan is the longest serving osteopath at Shefford Osteopathic Clinic and, since he joined in 2008, has really enjoyed becoming part of the family – so much so that he now runs the clinic.
Dan graduated in 2005 from the Surrey Institute of Osteopathic Medicine after completing a 4 year full time course. His degree had a heavy leaning towards a more traditional, classical style of osteopathy, which is now only taught at a post graduate level. Combining classical osteopathy with the more modern-day science based approach, allows Dan to deliver a more rounded and complete form of treatment.
In 2013, Dan completed his PGCE, which is allowing him to pursue his interest in teaching the future generations of osteopaths. With a lecturing and clinical role at the London School of Osteopathy (LSO), Dan has been a 4th year module leader, and delivers final year lectures. He is also an examiner throughout all the year groups, even examining their 5th year final clinical competence exams. He loves shaping the way osteopaths from the LSO are graduating, as well as inspiring the next generation to the full potential that osteopathy can achieve.
"Since entering into education, I learnt so much and loved shaping the way in which osteopathy is going. As well as teaching at an undergraduate level, I also teach at post graduate level too. I teach my own courses which are open to practicing qualified osteopaths, and I am really proud to be able to share my skills and knowledge to other osteopaths, helping grow the community. I have even ventured aboard...I have a strong relationship with a teaching college in Ireland, and have delivered lectures in Malta.
Combining my presence in education and my continual professional development, has enabled me to stay up-to-date and at the forefront of current medical practice. I have completed many courses including a dry needling and cranial sacral osteopathic course, all of which I incorporate into my everyday skill set. I have used my cranial osteopathy to successfully treat hundreds of babies, and over the years, I have administered 10s of thousands of treatments to all sorts of conditions, and all sorts of people. All of this enables me to say 'you're in safe hands'. I love my job, and I love being able to help people in any way I can."
