Julia Williams is an osteopath and naturopath with a passion for optimising the health potential of the individual. She has practised from a regular clinic in Harley Street since 2002, treating patients presenting with a broad range of conditions from sports injuries, low back pain and headaches to irritable bowel syndrome and chronic fatigue syndrome. She is particularly experienced in treating difficult or longstanding cases of back or neck pain, headaches and joint pains; especially those with links to irritable bowel syndrome or hormone imbalances.
As an equine osteopath, Julia also treats horses and ponies, as well as the occasional dog, cat and bird! Regular injuries, thanks to horse riding at home in France in the summer and skiing at her base in the Austrian Alps in winter, provide valuable insight into injury mechanisms, healing and professional empathy!
Initially qualifing as a chemical engineer from Imperial College, London, Julia then decided to pursue osteopathic medicine and graduated with first class honours in 1997 from the British College of Naturopathy and Osteopathy (now the British College of Osteopathic Medicine). Julia’s first three post-graduate years were spent practising alongside Dr. Brian Pattinson, a founder member of the British Institute of Musculoskeletal Medicine, gaining experience in rheumatology and orthopaedic medicine. She held an NHS provider contract with Brentford, Chiswick & Isleworth Primary Care Trust from 1998 to 2004 and has provided private care to the patients of Holly Road Medical Centre for Dr. N. Thakrar, a family GP, since 1997.
Julia uses a range of osteopathic and naturopathic techniques including the Neurological Integration System (NIS). NIS is a tool for delving deep into the root causes of conditions. Health is more than the absence of obvious disease, it is dependent upon the individual and is a reflection of a harmonious interaction with our environment both internally and externally. Dysfunction in one area invariably leads to disruption elsewhere. All functional areas of the human body are monitored and coordinated by our central nervous system. NIS reveals disturbed communications between all our body’s systems and enables a reset of the normal connections.
