Practitioners at Pond Square Health
Born in Cape Town, South Africa, I relocated to London in 1997. After being ordained and having worked as an Orthodox rabbi, I gave up the cloth to be an osteopath and have worked as a full-time osteopath in the UK for over 10 years.
I run two clinics: ‘Pond Square Health Clinic’, in picturesque Highgate Village, and 104 Harley Street in the After 10 years in Highgate, Pond Square health Clinic opened in 2018. We have a multidisciplinary team of osteopaths, a physiotherapist, and nutritionist. I began in Highgate in 2008 working alongside Simeon Neil Asher and running his Frozen Shoulder clinic and have stayed in the beautiful village since
At the Harley Street practice, having worked alongside Barrie Savory, the legendary osteopath, and author of ‘The Good Back Guide’, for five years, our lease ran out and we moved to separate single practices on Harley Street in 2016. We treat all conditions, from head to toe, and my special interests include myofascial pain, shoulder conditions, headaches, throat conditions and knee pain. Working with the medics in the building, we also have access to phlebotomy, radiology and medical support.
As well as relieving pain in the short-term, I aim to provide a longer-term improvement in body structure and function.
My philosophy is simple: find the problem, fix the problem and then equip you with the tools to ensure the problem does not return.
I use a variety of methods from osteopathy, acupuncture, and dry-needling to sports taping and occasionally electrotherapy.
I am registered with the General Osteopathic Council and the British Osteopathic Association and I am a member of the British Medical Acupuncture Society and the International Myopain Society.
I am insured with all major insurance companies BUT PLEASE DO CHECK with my office to see if your insurance fully covers your treatment.
Danielle graduated from the British School of Osteopathy (now University College of Osteopathy) with a Master’s degree in 2016 and is registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC).
She has an acute understanding of how pain can impact on both a professional and social level, having experienced reoccurring episodes of debilitating neck pain following a whiplash injury in her teens. Medication did little to alleviate her symptoms but discovering osteopathy provided relief from pain and reduced the frequency of episodes, until she became symptom free. She has been a strong advocate of Osteopathy ever since.
Danielle decided to study osteopathy after a successful corporate career. Initially she trained as a massage therapist, which gave her a passion for manual therapy. A thirst for knowledge in order to gain a deeper understanding of how the body functions lead her to osteopathy. Danielle has completed courses in both structural and classical osteopathic methods and has a special interest in exercise rehabilitation, in which she has completed a number of courses. Most recently a mentorship with England Rugby Physio, Dave O’Sullivan. She incorporates a range of skills into her treatment plans including; joint manipulation, articulation, various soft tissue techniques, medical acupuncture and exercise therapy.

Her philosophy is to address the underlying cause to prevent the problem from returning.
