Osteopathy

Meet Rachael

Rachael began her career in healthcare in 2014 after completing a master’s degree in Osteopathy at the University College of Osteopathy, London. Since then she has gained extensive experience working with patients for spinal referrals (NHS) and female health care patients in private practice.  Rachael is passionate to work with people of all ages and backgrounds and is dedicated to help people recover from their pain so that they can live a full and active life.

 

Rachael trained and worked as an APNT sports massage and injury therapist for a decade before graduating as an Osteopath. She dedicated her time rehabilitating injured runners, cyclists, musicians and high-profile actors back to health, and back to the physical level of excellence needed to do the thing they loved doing.

 

Currently, Rachael provides Osteopathy to individuals working in the corporate environment, at McKinsey and Company’s London office. This has enabled Rachael to combine her knowledge of exercise, lifestyle and postural related conditions in the workplace and help people recover and achieve their health goals. Additionally, Rachael provides Osteopathy for mothers, during and after their pregnancy, offering a safe and gentle specialist treatment for those suffering from pregnancy-related conditions.

How do Osteopaths work?

Osteopaths use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body’s own healing mechanisms. They may also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.
