Yassien was raised in North London, where he took an early interest in working in healthcare.
His particular interest in natural, non invasive methods of maintaining and improving health led him to study at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine, where he achieved a BSc (Hons) in Osteopathic Medicine and a Diploma in Naturopathic Medicine in 2003.
Soon afterwards, Yassien left London; moving first to the East Midlands and then to Lancashire gaining experience in various clinics across the county.
Since graduating, he has continued to extend his knowledge and skills, having successfully completed post graduate courses in Cranial Osteopathy and the osteopathic treatment of ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
He is particularly interested in the variety of conditions that can be osteopathically treated, and is keen to express that osteopathy is not just for back pain.
