She has worked with the Leicester Tigers rugby team as well as Leicester City FC women’s team giving her a wealth of experience in sporting injuries.

Fatema now also offers Dry Cupping Therapy alongside or separate from osteopathy.
Cupping is beneficial with muscular injuries and areas of stiffness. It works by increasing blood supply to the area where negative pressure is applied and kick-starting a healing process. Cupping can work well on its own or in combination with Osteopathy.

Osteopathy is a holistic form of complementary medical practice which works primarily on the musculoskeletal system. It works on the principle that structure governs function. If there are dysfunctions in structure, this will affect how well your body can function. Treatment is drug free and hands-on, and encourages a balanced relationship between all systems within the body for optimal function as a whole person.
Osteopathy can be beneficial at each stage in life, whether it be taking advantage of the suppleness of an infant’s skeleton which requires the gentlest of techniques to create positive change, or be it wear and tear in old age requiring a helping hand to make daily activities more comfortable. Osteopaths can treat from newborn babies to older aged adults.
Cupping is an ancient form of medical practice. It uses glass, silicone or plastic cups to create a negative pressure in the cup wherever it is strategically placed on the skin.
Cupping is becoming more popular with professional athletes to enhance performance. It is thought to do this by increasing the capacity of muscles allowing blood to flow more freely into the area of concern.
Cupping is also known to help relieve arthritic joint pain, neck and back pain.
