Our Osteopathic practice was established here in 1989. Over the years we have developed our skills and abilities to support our patients in their journeys to optimise their health. We have gathered a skilled team of Osteopaths and other therapists to work together for the patients.
People often ask us what Osteopaths do, more particularly what do you do here; because it seems so different to other treatment I have received! Perhaps the answer is that we don’t “do” we “allow“. We help create the optimum conditions in the body for the individual to heal themselves. The Osteopath acts like a catalyst to allow the body’s own innate wisdom to complete the healing process.
Jeremy Gilbey B.Sc.(Hons) DO FSCCO
Jeremy is the principal practitioner, founding the practice here in 1989. He has been teaching Osteopaths at undergraduate and postgraduate levels over many years in both the UK and abroad. He has developed a particular interest in the treatment of patients who present with complex multifaceted problems, who have already explored many avenues of treatment. He often receives referrals from other Osteopaths and therapists. Over many years he has been treating pregnant women, babies, young children and their mothers. He often says how wonderful it is to see a girl in her childhood and then years later be able to support her with her own growing family. Jeremy is a founding member of the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy and a member of the Institute of Osteopathy.

She has a special interest in the importance of improving posture to optimise health. She treats a wide range of patients of all ages and helps many people with long term pain.

Rebecca Law BSc (Hons) Ost. MSCCO
Rebecca’s approach is aimed at supporting people to return to their optimal state of health. She works with a broad range of people with a variety of symptoms. By enabling people to find health and balance in their system, Rebecca finds osteopathy can reduce and eliminate pain. It can also help people feel better, healthier and happier, and enable them to manage the physical and mental stresses and strains of life more effectively. As part of her care, Rebecca is interested in what people do and how they do it. She can advise on computer/laptop setup and use, and can give exercises to help recovery.
