Chris grew up with a passion for studying human form and function and wanted to be an osteopath at the age of 13. He finally achieved his dream when graduating from the British School of Osteopathy in 2008.
After graduating, Chris spent two years studying classical osteopathy before investing in the prestigious GIFT mentorship program in America in 2013 to become a Fellow of Applied Functional Science.
Chris came back with a huge passion for the subject and wanted to help spread the word. He now teaches Applied Functional Science in London and Europe with Thirst4Function (thirst4function.com) to osteopaths, chiropractors, physiotherapists and advanced trainers.
He feels osteopathy is a great platform to help guide people to a state of optimal health. This has led him to learn about nutrition, exercise and philosophy to try to be more holistic in improving patient’s wellbeing.
Our Osteopath Nirosan qualified from Swansea University. On registering with the General Osteopathic council, he started work at Glasgow Osteopath (Glasgow, Scotland) and more lately Caithness Osteopathic Services (Thurso, Scotland). He now joins us here at Forte Physical Health, Chelmsford.
He has worked with varied patient group including elderly, pregnant mothers, adolescent and sports injury patients. Nirosan takes a special interest in chronic lower back pain and prevention.
Nirosan takes an all-round health and wellbeing approach to patient care to help them be at their best. This involves a comprehensive assessment, individual to each patient, taking into consideration lifestyle factors, occupation, daily stress, environment etc.

Adele graduated as a Nutritional Medicine Practitioner in Sydney, Australia before returning to practice in Brentwood, Essex, the place where she grew up.
She has had a life long passion for nature as medicine, and has gained much nutritional knowledge from her early teens for her own health needs. Living overseas and travelling extensively, Adele has real life experience of how different cultures use food and plants as medicine and the ways in which an individual’s nutrient needs are met in line with the environment they live in.
Adele applies the Functional Medicine approach to her practice – where a person is seen as a ‘whole’, not just as an isolated set of symptoms. When working with clients, she spends time listening to their history and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex chronic disease.
If deemed necessary, laboratory testing will be recommended to gain a deeper understanding of the route cause of a health issue or imbalance in the body.
Each client receives a personalised plan, recommending specific foods and supplemental nutrients to support and restore the proper physiological functioning of the body.
Programs can vary in duration depending on the needs, compliance and requirements of the patient.
