Meet the Team
George Fridd graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in 2001, where he later tutored undergraduates in the outpatient’s clinic. He set up the Practice at Ferndown with Lucy in 2008, after moving back to Dorset from London. He practices using both cranial and structural techniques to treat a wide range of problems, not just backs! As a qualified sports scientist he has a special insight into sport-related problems, supporting both the professional and amateur athlete back to fitness.
Lucy Ross Browne also qualified from the British School of Osteopathy in 2003. She previously worked in Bristol but decided to relocate to Dorset in 2007 to set up The Practice with George. Lucy combines structural and cranial osteopathic skills in treatment of patients of all ages. She is a member of the Sutherland society and has a particular interest in the treatment of pre and post natal women, and runs our children’s clinic.
Damon Murgatroyd brings a huge wealth of experience to the team. Previously a medical doctor, Damon graduated from Leicester Medical school in 1984. After a medical career in general practice, rheumatology, and orthopaedics he went onto retrain and qualify as an Osteopath in 1992.
Damon believes in integrating his medical knowledge with his physical skills to work with patients in their recovery. Over 30 years of medical and osteopathic experience gives him an expert insight into musculoskeletal pain and treatment.
He also lectures at the London School of Osteopathic Medicine, participates in martial arts and is a tour guide at monkey world!
Rianne completed her Masters in Osteopathy at the University College of Osteopathy (UCO), formerly the British School of Osteopathy (BSO). She joined the team in 2021 when she relocated from London to Dorset.
Prior to studying osteopathy, Rianne worked as a personal trainer and gym coach in the fitness industry, where she developed an understanding of the human body and the importance of movement. She is particularly interested in treating headaches, sports related injuries, the elderly, and patients with ongoing chronic pain.
Gifty works closely with the Osteopaths in the team to support each other’s work and help maintain long term symptom relief. As an experienced massage therapist with specialist training in both sports massage and pregnancy massage she is a real asset to the team.
“I feel so lucky to be doing a job that I love. The best part is the enormous sense of fulfilment it brings. Every time I successfully treat a client’s injuries, or when they come back to tell me their aches and pains are all gone away, that’s the best feeling of all.”
Bony Tony is our friendly skeleton- you’ll spot him standing outside the practice. Look out for his ever changing wardrobe!
