About Oliver Vass

A little about me…

Born at a very early age, I quickly overcame incontinence and language issues in time to attend primary school. Building on these early successes I learned to read, write and execute mathematical calculations. My life of learning continued at secondary school and finally took me to The British School of Osteopathy.

Along the way I’ve raised three children, two successfully to adulthood, with the remaining one still in progress, but the signs are good that she too will complete the journey. At which time my wife and I will reward ourselves by running away to a sunlit beach in a foreign land for a week or two.

I’ve survived two years in New Zealand, the sudden destruction of my favourite car and more significantly, many attempts to hit a small white ball several hundred yards into a not-much-larger hole in a much larger blue/green ball with instruments seemingly designed specifically to frustrate that effort. I’ve also survived some years away from osteopathy in public health and caring privately in my home. After all that, I was very pleased a few years ago to get back in clinic.

I trained as an osteopath at The British School of Osteopathy (Now the University College of Osteopathy) between 1993 and 1998, achieving a BSc(Hons)Ost and registering with the General Osteopathic Council in 1998. Since then apart from that short break working in public health, I’ve run my own clinics in Thame and Princes Risborough, and been an associate at practices in Wallingford, Bicester and Hillingdon. All this was punctuated with teaching Osteopathy at Oxford Brookes University and a couple of years at a clinic in New Zealand.

To find out a little more about me, take a look at my LinkedIn, twitter or instagram (if you do that sort of thing).
If you don’t want to commit to that, perhaps have a peek at some of the things I put there on my Gallery.
