Virgil Bru

Virgil Graduated with a BSc and an MSc in Physiotherapy in 2010 and 2011. After studying 4 years in Belgium, the bad weather made him move back to sunnier regions.

In Spain and then in south west of France, Virgil started to developed his interest in his 3 specialties (Sport Physio, Paediatric and Woman health). During this time, he practiced:

  • With Marcel Caufriez  who taught him no pressure gymnastic (post pregnancy gymnastic, internal link)

  • Within the Polideportivo Principe De España, treating elite athletes of Balearics islands aiming to qualify for national team, international competition or Olympic games
  • Within a post-surgery and trauma rehabilitation center in Bordeaux

In 2012, Virgil moved to London not only to work as a physiotherapist in a new culture and discover a different approach to treatment, but also to complete an MSc in Osteopathy in 2014 at the British School of Osteopathy.

Additionally, he used this time to continue to develop his skills:

  • In Pediatric learning Cranial Osteopathy and other paediatric treatments at the BSO children clinic
  • In Women Health following courses in Visceral Osteopathy and Obstetrical Osteopathy
  • In Sport Physiotherapy completing a DIU (inter-university degree) in sport physiotherapy at the INSEP (French national institute of sport) and following a south London rugby team during and after their games
