Sharon Banks

I am the Principal Osteopathy and Director of Proactive Osteopathy Clinic, Hedge End, Southampton.

I studied at the  University College Osteopathy (formerly known as British School of Osteopathy) in London obtaining a Masters Degree .

I treated patients in a general clinic in London for two years and in a number of specialist clinics including patients with HIV, pregnant ladies, elderly and disabled patients. In 2014 I qualified as a Medical Acupuncturist and in 2006 qualified as a level 5 Sport Therapist.

I an ex-professional ballet dancer from South Africa and have always had an interest in the workings of the human body. After retiring as a ballet dancer, I travelled around Europe for a few years and had the opportunity to work in the Red Sea resort of Dahab where I lived for 7 years teaching scuba diving and furthermore operated a sport therapy practice treating a variety of athletes from windsurfers, scuba divers and yoga individuals.

Whilst in Dahab I gained my Advanced Trimix diving certification and dived to 102m in the world famous Blue Hole.

When I am not scuba diving, I enjoy snow skiing.
