Emma Martinot  M.Ost., D.O.

Emma is a Dutch national who grew up in Devon, England. After finishing her education in England she travelled and worked around Western Europe for 8 years. Her interest in osteopathy arose after she had amazing results from osteopathic treatment, after one of her snowboarding injuries. Because of this Emma decided to return to education, and found her vocation with osteopathy.

After meeting Anna Nikova at the European School of Osteopathy whilst training for their Masters degree, Emma decided to come to Bulgaria to set up the first ever osteopathic practice in the country, to spread the knowledge and understanding of osteopathy.

Emma’s experience lies in all areas of osteopathy. She loves treating babies and children as they respond so well to treatment, and she is also interested in treating sport and recreational injury, acute and chronic problems, as well as rehabilitation, nutrition, and lifestyle advice and she holds a particular interest in treating systemic conditions.

Prior to coming to Bulgaria, Emma has worked at Osteo & Physio, in Cullompton, UK.

Anna Nikova  M.Ost., D.O.

Anna Nikova left Bulgaria to study osteopathy in England, after having visited an osteopath just once. Anna had been suffering from back pain, and she was so impressed with the single osteopathic treatment she had, that she decided to change her occupation and practice osteopathy herself. Prior to that Anna had graduated Journalism and Economics at the American University in Bulgaria.

Already from the first lectures at the European School of Osteopathy, Anna was confident she had found her vocation. She studied with joy throughout the 4 years, her motivation showing by graduating with a First Class Honours.

After working for some time in England, Anna felt that she would be more useful in Bulgaria. She believes that the Bulgaria needs a logical, accessible, scientific and natural therapy – such as osteopathy. So she returned to her hometown of Sofia, where she now owns, runs, and practices as an osteopath in Bulgaria’s first ever osteopathic practice.

Before she returned to Bulgaria, Anna has worked at the Plymouth Naturopathic Clinic and at the Estuary Clinic both in Devon, UK.
