Marc van Leeuwen is a graduate of the International Academy of Osteopathy (I.A.O.) and holds a Master of Science degree in Osteopathic Medicine (Msc. Ost.Med.) from Bucks New University. He previously worked as a manual therapist and sports physiotherapist (MSc) for more than a decade. In 2022, he finished the specialisation ‘Osteopathy in Children’ (Panta Rhei – Pro Osteo). This two-year training gave him great knowledge and new insights into examining and treating children and newborns. In addition, Marc travels frequently to England to attend courses at the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy (SCCO).
His passion for osteopathy began in 2015. To deepen and hone his manual skills, he attended the ‘manipulations & soft tissue techniques’ course at the International Academy of Osteopathy that year. Thereafter, the choice was easily made to start full training as an osteopath the following year.
Among other things, what fascinates him is the interconnection of the different tissues and body systems within the human body. The body is a whole and everything works and moves together. Knowing this connection and recognising its importance ensures that the osteopath always looks for the cause behind a complaint. Finding the cause is also a major challenge for Marc. As he knows that this is the only place where optimal results can be achieved.
Every day, he works with great enthusiasm and passion to achieve the best possible outcome together with the patient. As an osteopath, he sees people with a wide variety of complaints. He treats babies and children as well as adults; athletes and non-athletes.
