Welcome. I am Maciek Leszczak, or Mattie for short. Originally from Poland, I now live and work in Edinburgh, Scotland since 2007.

I am a registered Osteopath (General Osteopathic Council, reg. nr. 9965), having gained my Bachelor of Osteopathy with Honours from Anglia Ruskin University (Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care) with London School of Osteopathy.

I have been recommended by Three Best Rated® (U.K) in their ranking of "Top 3 Osteopath in Edinburgh", please click [here] or the Badge Certificate below.

Before my graduation, I have been a practising massage therapist since 2008, adding myofascial release therapy in 2010, and in 2012 became a Shiatsu practitioner. I continue to use all of those modalities, when appropriate. I am planning to add acupuncture dry needle therapy to my practice later in this year.

Please scroll down the page to get more information about me.

As an official hands-on and primary health care medical practitioner (osteopath), I bring together a combination of techniques to address your body’s individual needs, looking for the reasons behind your symptoms and treating your body as a whole.

I place particular emphasis on releasing postural restrictions, helping your body to recover from injuries and chronic conditions, reducing pain and discomfort. I also consider the connected relationship between your bones, muscles, and the state of all other tissues (such as fascia, skin, tendons, ligaments, disks, joint capsules and viscera) in relation to your nutrition and natural life energy. I outline how your level of activity, lifestyle, habits and existing health condition (if you have any) may have contributed to the way your body feels now, and why. I also suggest ways you can help me to help you, by making some simple changes.

Please check the Appointment section in the main menu to know what to expect during your appointment.
