About us

Hampstead Osteopathy Clinic

Hampstead Osteopathy was founded by Ben Posen in 2008. The clinic is open seven days a week and has achieved its excellent reputation, because we place patient care at the heart of everything we do. The vast majority of our patients (over 2000 appointments in the last year) come as a result of word of mouth. You can see what a few people who have used the clinic have to say about it by going to google.com/+Hampsteadosteopathy. We work closely with a wide range of health care providers and regularly make and receive referrals from local doctors, Pilates teachers, podiatrists, personal trainers, massage therapists and many others.

Angelo Zanfardino

Angelo Zanfardino is a registered osteopath who graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in 2016. His motivation as a practitioner stems from his experience as a professional ballet dancer during which he suffered a severe injury himself. Knowing first-hand how challenging recovery can be, he dedicates himself to tailoring treatment to the individual with traditional osteopathic techniques.

Whilst his career as a professional dancer allows him insight into sport and dance injury treatment, his osteopathic studies extended his experience to a variety of patients. These include pregnant women, those living with HIV, chronic illness patients and elderly populations. Angelo has found that movement is essential for healing and he provides rehabilitative exercises based on his previous experience as a qualified Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis teacher so that patients feel supported even after treatment has finished.

Andy McGowan

Andy’s keen participation in outdoor and mountain sports (distance running, snowboarding and hill walking) inspired him to retrain in osteopathy after a career in IT. He has considerable experience in all aspects of structural osteopathy and uses the fundamental osteopathic techniques of massage, mobilisation and manipulation for the back, neck and other areas of the body. He has additional training both in Medical Acupuncture for pain relief and muscle relaxation, and exercise therapy for the optimisation of functional movement. He is also experienced in the treatment of acute sports injuries such as strained muscles and sprained ligaments and provides rehabilitation exercises for you to manage your injury at home to speed healing and aid recovery. His previous career in IT has also given him a first person perspective on the tension and discomfort that arises from long hours at a desk, and uses a multi-layered approach to help his patients mitigate this, and improve posture
