The Bone and Body Team
Ringo is from Manipur the furthest North Eastern State of India. Manipur is situated at the end of the Himalayas and is an "Ayurvedic Medicine Hotspot". He is from a long line of traditional men and women of medicine and his interest in the body and natural techniques started from a young age. He is a qualified Osteopath from Manipur Ayurvedic Sammelan and is also a Martial Arts Master from the Shihan Martial Arts Academy. Ringo developed a unique technique of Osteopathy in which the individual joints in the spine and body are re-aligned. This is a system which combines bone, tendon and muscle work to make the body stable. Ringo started developing this technique more than a decade ago, visiting and studying traditional and indigenous bone and body treatment in temples throughout Asia. In addition, Ringo and his wife Miranda are board members of the Bone and Body Research Centre.
Miranda is from London, UK. She has been working in the Event Management and Fundraising Industry specialising in the Middle East and Africa for over eighteen years. Miranda sustained head trauma during an accident in India. After six days of facial paralysis she received emergency treatment from Ringo. Once the initial treatment was completed she received treatment for multiple spine and hip injuries. Miranda then decided to dedicate her life to helping, further developing and making this critical system more available to others. Miranda has retrained in the essential rehabilitation stretching programme from Ringo and other Masters from the Shihan Martial Arts Academy. Miranda has studied numerous exercise systems throughout her life, including yoga, Callanetics, aerobics, weight training and personal training and previously studied plant science. Miranda is Vice President of the Bone and Body Research Centre.
