Gina Whelan Dip.Ost., MOCI.
As a Registered Osteopath with the Osteopathic Council of Ireland (registration number 03091045), I qualified in 2001. I trained with the Irish Classical School of Osteopathy which was set up by osteopaths trained by John Wernham who founded and ran the John Wernham College of Classical Osteopathy in Maidestone. I attended the British School of Osteopathy for postgraduate training in the Cranial Technique. I enjoy using the Biodynamic Model in my practice.
I have always enjoyed working with mothers and babies and have had a particular interest in this area since I qualified. I am currently studying with Ian on the 3-year postgraduate Diploma in Paediatric Osteopathy. I have a special interest in autoimmune dysfunction in children. I have given talks about health and wellness with GutsyKids, a support group for parents of kids with IBD (inflammatory bowel disease), that is, Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. I also work to support families in making healthy lifestyle choices.
I enjoy being out in nature and spending as much time as possible in the West of Ireland. I love cooking and I am passionate about eating healthily as a means of staying healthy.
I also run an osteopathic practice in Dublin.
