About me

Welcome to my blog, my name is Thorunn Bacon and for nearly twenty five years I've worked with women of all ages as an Osteopath, Naturopath, Acupuncturist and Postural Stability Instructor.
I've come to deeply understand women's bodies, how they work and how they change through their natural transitions such as motherhood and menopause. I understand how women's bodies age and most importantly I understand what can be done to slow down the ageing process of our bones, muscles and tissues. 
As a woman rapidly approaching fifty, I'm constantly reminded of changes within my own body, and I'm on a continuous quest to find ways to navigate those changes as positively as possible. We cannot reverse ageing, but we can make sure we age as well as is possible.
I was born and raised in Iceland, but have lived and worked in the UK all my adult life. I now live on the East Anglia coast with my family and I run Bacon and Associates Osteopaths and Physiotherapists  with my husband. We have a number of clinics around Essex in the UK and we have just celebrated 25 years of our business. I also worked in the NHS on a Spinal Pathway for many years. 
I keep in close contact with my home country and I continue to look to Iceland for inspiration when it comes to healthy living and living in harmony with the environment. 
I invite you to come along with me on a journey to improve your health and wellbeing that will carry you into your older years healthier, stronger and happier.
