Martina Bagnoli comes from Italy and she completed her Bachelor of Science in Osteopathy at Italian Academy of Osteopathic Medicine (AIMO) and British College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM) in 2016. She has also been an instructor for articulatory techniques and a thesis supervisor at AIMO.
Martina learned about osteopathy when she was a water skier athlete in Italy. She was constantly in contact with different therapists and, while they were explaining to her why she felt pain, she became passionate about learning more about anatomy and the healing processes of the body.
Martina’s approach sees the person as a whole unit in which mind and body are strictly connected. She likes to understand where the pain is coming from by analyzing the body, the movement and the patient’s personal lifestyle. She believes that everyone is unique in their perspective and experiences and thus the patient and the therapist should work together to find the best treatment to meet these different needs.
Martina uses various types of manual techniques to help with different kinds of disorders such as muscle/articulation pain, chronic pain, stress, temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD), postural disorders, headaches, digestive or other visceral disorders.
Over her years of practice, Martina has grown interested in the challenges of chronic pain and how much this kind of pain interferes with her patient’s personal lives. This has brought her to take specific advanced courses in chronic pain management to better support these patients.
Martina loves to work with adults, kids, pregnant women and athletes. In her free time, Martina loves to do yoga, take a walk in nature, and hike.
