Hi, I’m Rebecca
I am the principle osteopath at Spring Osteopathy. I am fully registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) and a member of the Institute of Osteopathy, formerly British Osteopathic Association (BOA).
For the first 16 years of my life, I lived in Honiley, Warwickshire until I moved to live in the French Alps where I spent time working in chalets & hotels, skiing, eating way too much tartiflette and finishing my school career off in Geneva.
From there I moved to Maidstone, Kent to start training as an osteopath and I graduated from the European School of Osteopathy in 2010 after completing a BSc (hons) degree in Osteopathy.
How my passion began
Both my parents are medically trained so it was natural for me to fall into the medical profession but with a needle phobia and a keenness for sports, I was originally looking at becoming a physiotherapist.
However, after my dad suffered a whiplash injury and was unable to be helped by physiotherapy, he then went to see an osteopath who sorted it out within just a couple of sessions. I went to observe how osteopaths worked and decided to change my course applications.
My early career
When I graduated I started working at Spring Clinic but after a couple of years I moved back down to Kent. I worked at Chuan Spa at The Langham Hotel, London and Bodycare Clinic in Crawley.
At Bodycare, I had the opportunity to be mentored by a 3rd generation osteopath where I had a very steep learning curve, honing my skills as an osteopath, learning more effective ways to diagnose and treat.
Where I am now
In 2015, I gravitated back to my home county of Warwickshire to restart working at Spring Clinic under the new name of Spring Osteopathy.
In May 2016 I gave birth to my daughter, Leona. My little monkey is a bit of a handful and loves climbing everything in sight but is always there to show me what “loving life” looks like with her crazy personality & cheeky grins!
Katie is a GOsC registered Osteopath. She is from South Wales and graduated from Swansea University with a Masters in Osteopathy in 2017.
After graduating Katie decided to move to Canada. She lived in Niagara, Ontario and enjoyed traveling and exploring what Canada had to offer. In Canada she got to work with Osteopaths who had trained in various countries with a variety of approaches which has allowed Katie to grow a lot as a practitioner. She moved back to the UK in December 2018 and made the move to Warwickshire where she has had the opportunity to team up with Rebecca.
Katie discovered Osteopathy as a teenager, she had been suffering with chronic Migraines until visiting an Osteopath, after a couple of appointments she couldn’t believe what a difference it had made in her life. From that point on she knew that she wanted to be an Osteopath and hasn’t looked back. Headaches have continued to be a real area of interest to Katie and she conducted a research project on the Osteopathic treatment of headaches for her Masters dissertation.
Some kind words from our clients
“I have suffered with pain and stiffness in my joints and muscles for the last few years which was aggravated by a car accident. After just three osteopathy sessions I felt like I had been given a new lease of life. I am now largely pain free and with each session I look forward to further improvement in flexibility. Thank you Rebecca!”
“Thank you so much for helping me with all my aches and pains and getting me walking properly again!”
“Being 6’6″ tall and not having the best posture, I’ve suffered with problems in my legs and lower back. With a few osteopathy sessions the majority of the pain has gone and this has allowed me to take part in a couple of charitable running events. I’m not built for running, but I could not have started any event without your treatment. Thank you.”
“Having ridden motorcycles since the late seventies and crashed them fairly frequently I have had problems with my neck and shoulders…this has also not been helped by tattooing at various angles over the last twenty years…Rebecca has dealt with these superbly, tattooing today had none of the usual aches and pains, I cannot believe the fluidity of my neck muscles and less tension in my shoulders, outstanding”
