Welcome to dore health
Whether you want to heal, move or train,
we have something to offer you.
Founded by Carlo and Debbie Dore, dore health is centred on developing health and wellness solutions for everyone. Based in Surrey, in the Molesey & Cobham area, we have over fifteen years of experience in providing osteopathic care and Pilates rehabilitation & training.
As two healthcare professionals we offer services targeted at treating long and short term musculoskeletal or postural issues. We work both individually and together. Carlo, as an Osteopath, specialises in treating acute and chronic pain, arising from muscular and joint strain.
Debbie, as an experienced Stott Pilates Certified Instructor, can provide a targeted rehabilitation programme via 121 private sessions or group classes both ‘face to face’ & via zoom.
Pilates does not just have to be a method of rehabilitation, it is also a great way to exercise and can be performed by people of all ages & abilities as a way of strengthening muscles, core stability and improving posture.
Great Teamwork - Osteopathy and Pilates!
I came to Carlo after 18 months of debilitating sacroiliac joint pain (and other associated problems) which had not improved despite trying physiotherapy, consulting an orthopaedic surgeon, having a corticosteroid injection and even trying rest. After a few osteopathic sessions with Carlo, I was starting to feel some relief and we agreed that combining pilates with osteopathic treatment would be a sensible long term approach. Carlo briefed his pilates instructor wife, Debbie who carefully crafted a series of pilates exercises designed to strengthen core muscles without irritating the sacroiliac joints. I have weekly one-to-one pilates sessions with Debbie, complete some homework exercises and see Carlo on a monthly basis. Over the last few months, Debbie and Carlo have been able to work together to reduce my pain and strengthen the surrounding muscles. I am now able to walk and do a lot more activities without undue pain! I have tried both osteopathy and pilates (separately) before but the combination offered by the Dores is much more successful. I thoroughly recommend their partnership approach
A Combined Approach
After suffering several episodes of lower back pain since having children, this time, I went to see Carlo at the medicine garden. His practice was warm, friendly and professional. Very quickly he took me out of pain, and after two follow-up sessions, I was much more comfortable. Carlo recommended Pilates as a way to strengthen my core and avoid future episodes. Having never done any Pilates and finding it difficult to get to a class I booked a one to one session with Debbie. Initially, I intended to have a few sessions with Debbie which would enable me to get to grips with the principals and maximise any group sessions I could attend in future. However, my one to one sessions quickly became invaluable. Not only do I see and feel my body getting stronger, week-on-week, I also feel uplifted afterwards. Debbie has worked muscles I didn’t know I had (no wonder they were weak)! Over the past few months, I have gone from strength to strength and I put this down to Carlo and Debbie’s combined approach. I feel, quite literally, in safe hands.
