Rachel graduated from the University College of Osteopathy with a Distinction. Prior to that, she studied Psychology at the University of Bristol, with the intention of becoming a Clinical Psychologist. After graduating, she was treated by an osteopath and discovered a whole new approach to health and wellbeing and never looked back.
Rachel is a strong believer in the osteopathic principle that the body tends towards self healing and as osteopaths we are finding the key to help unlock this. She uses a wide range of techniques which are individually tailored to each patient. These include structural osteopathy, visceral, cranial, shockwave and medical acupuncture. She has a special interest in complex chronic pain conditions.
Outside of osteopathy, Rachel loves all things outdoors including camping, cycling, hiking and anything in nature. Rachel is a regular meditator and has done many meditation retreats and courses. She finds many of the things she learns on the retreats helpful to share with patients, including mindfulness and breathing techniques to calm the sympathetic nervous system.
