Ishtar Darvell

Ishtar is passionate about holistic treatment. She defines osteopaths as “doctors of the body”, and believes it is her responsibility to have a thorough knowledge of human anatomy and physiology to effectively employ any technique for the benefit of the individual.

Ishtar uses a range of structural and functional techniques to treat the various injuries and illnesses she sees in practice, as well as integrating exercise rehabilitation knowledge to suit individual lifestyle.

While bringing pain relief, Ishtar will teach you about pain and how to work with your body to experience health and long-term wellbeing. She appreciates the importance of listening on all levels and has dedicated her adult life to understanding the language of the body.

Since qualifying as a massage therapist over 20 years ago, Ishtar has continued to study the body and overall health, as well as teaching qi gong, meditation and dance sessions to her repertoire.
