Daniel Moore

DO., MSc Pain Management

Daniel Moore originally trained to become a professional dancer in the late 1970s, but found solace in alternative medicine after enduring multiple injuries that conventional methods could not address.

Turning to osteopathy proved to be a pivotal moment, providing relief and practical advice where conventional approaches, including consultations with GPs and physiotherapy, had fallen short.

Graduating as an osteopath in 1989, Daniel’s learning journey expanded into qualifying in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Homeopathy, Hypnotherapy, and Applied Communications.

In the last 7 years, Daniel earned a Master’s degree in Pain Science from the UK and a Postgraduate diploma in Pain and Pain Management in New Zealand.

Today, he practices as an osteopath, integrating his diverse skills to offer personalised care that pushes the boundaries and aims to go beyond the limitations of conventional medical approaches.

In addition to his work as an osteopath, Daniel also serves as a resilience and recovery coach, helping people to understand the profound role their brain plays in both recovery and pain management as well as the effect it can have on well-being.
