Michael Parr (Consulting Osteopath)

Michael trained at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine, qualifying with Honours in Osteopathic Medicine, a Diploma in Naturopathy, and a Diploma in Osteopathy. After qualifying as an Osteopath and Naturopath, his post graduate training has been extensive, which has been developed within multiple NHS and Private Clinics.

In addition to providing consultation and training nationally as a specialist in musculoskeletal injury prevention and management to a wide variety of industries, Michael has also taught the Perrin technique diagnostic protocol and assessments to the institute of Osteopathy National Conference alongside Dr Perrin.

Post graduate Studies include the management of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME, Frozen Shoulder and other shoulder injuries, Cranial Osteopathy, Pregnancy care, Perinatal care, the Osteopathic treatment of Infant and Child, Dry Needling, Movement Assessment, Stability Training, Neuromuscular training, Dynamic Exercise Prehabilitation and Rehabilitation, and Performance Training, to name a few.

These studies continue internationally in order to remain at the forefront of contemporary practice, which in turn has enabled him to provide assistance in elite athlete training camps, working with the worlds’ best, including multiple world champions across different disciplines.

In addition, Michael has provided consultancy for various media sources, productions, fitness programmes and is currently a featured expert in Ask The Expert section of luxury lifestyle magazine SLOAN! (being recognised by them as ‘The best Osteopath in Cambridge’ 2016 and 2017).

Michael’s experience has provided him with a strong foundation for the advancing of his understanding of the body and the stresses that are put upon it, which allows him to provide the most suitable treatment and advice for the individual client and their lifestyle. His passion can be seen within his, aiming to showing his clients just how much they can achieve.

Patient Testimonials

I have seen many osteopaths and physiotherapists about my hip and groin pain for many years, in Germany as well as in Cambridge, and I must say I have never met anyone as competent and knowledgeable as Michael Parr from Elementary Health. He does not just do his job, his heart is in his work. He goes to seminars, talks and workshops around the world and he is really engaged and committed whilst treating me. What I am most impressed by is how thoroughly he does the exercises with me. Nothing escapes his expert eye and he pays attention to the smallest movement and muscle, checking and ensuring that I do my exercises correctly; just like the best therapist I could imagine. With his great sense of humour, his friendliness, his sensitivity and good manners he makes sure that I never feel self-conscious when doing the exercises in front of him, and his correcting/adjusting/demonstrating feels very skilful and professional. Michael is also a really good listener, and in combination with his holistic approach he looks at the whole person. No one else before listened (and remembered!) so carefully to the details of my everyday life-style, how much a day I walk, how I carry my bag, which shoes I wear and all the other little things which contribute to orthopaedic issues and are far too often ignored by other therapists. On a practical note, I really like the fact that you can book your appointments with Michael online, receive reminder emails, that you can pay by card and email Michael any time.
