Sara is a registered Osteopath with a Masters degree from the London School of Osteopathy and has worked in private clinics in Central London since graduating. Sara is Portuguese and has decided to come to the UK to study at the London School of Osteopathy. However, She fell in love with this city and ended up staying. She is a martial arts lover and has practised Taekwondo since the age of 10. She was also a national champion for 4 consecutive years in Portugal. A physical injury during her 7-year career as a federated athlete led her to osteopathy, where this passion was born.
Sara loves animals and spending time with her furry cat. In 2018, she published her first children’s book which is on sale worldwide in Portuguese-speaking countries.
Sara has a special interest in treating patients with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) or any other gastrointestinal conditions, sports injuries, headaches and neurological conditions. She is also passionate about cranial and paediatric osteopathy. She is a dry needling specialist (Acupuncture) and kinesiology as well.

Jashwini is an Associate Osteopath with a master’s degree from the London School of Osteopathy, a BSc in Biomedical Science, and a sports massage qualification.
Jashwini is passionate about treating sports injuries and visceral issues with a holistic approach. She looks for the root of the problem and aims to restore the body to optimum health by promoting healing after injury and aid in treating symptoms associated with chronic conditions to prevent further injuries.
She uses a variety of techniques such as massage, mobilisations, manipulations, myofascial release, neuromuscular, muscle energy techniques and dry needling. Each treatment is tailored to Jashwini’s individual clients’ needs with relevant advice and the prescription of appropriate exercise to aid in recovery.
Jashwini likes to stay fit and healthy with yoga, bouldering, hiking, and swimming. She also enjoys reading, cooking, and exploring new things.
My interest in the benefits of massage came about following my career as a dancer. I grew up in New Zealand, training in ballet and contemporary, and worked as a dancer in both New Zealand and Australia, before moving to the UK in 2000 to work in secondary schools as a dance teacher.
Seeing dance colleagues manage their injuries while continuing to work at a physically demanding level, confirmed for me the importance of movement as part of the treatment process. I believe in the benefits of a collaborative approach, and I really enjoy learning from other therapists across a range of disciplines, to inform and develop myself as a therapist. I enjoy treating a wide range of clientele from all walks of life. I work on the basis that every client is unique and that the context of common discomforts and injuries is always slightly different.
Whether you are looking for a maintenance massage, a treatment to aid injury rehab, or a deep treatment to eliminate tension, I will work with you to explore how you use your body on a daily basis, and then use this information to problem-solve and work towards a solution at a functional level.
Holly is a Senior Massage Therapist.
Her love for health and fitness was obvious at a young age and Holly knew she wanted to help others feel healthier from the get-go.
In 2002 Holly signed up to a Personal Training and Sports Massage Therapy intensive diploma and never looked back.
She’s always eager to learn and continue to expand her knowledge. Becoming a CHEK practitioner was a pivotal moment in Holly’s career, helping others move, eat and live optimally by looking after them physically, mentally and emotionally.
Holly is multi-passionate about all areas of health and loves people, but if she were to choose her favourite areas then rehabilitation from surgery, women’s health and fertility matters would be up there! Her motivation has often been guided by her health hurdles and learning Fertility Massage Therapy in an apprenticeship with Nicole Jardim ‘the period fixer’ has been her favourite growth experience.
When she’s not seeing clients or studying, Holly can be caught running after her daughters and spending time with her family or training her own body, usually with CrossFit.
Kaps is an Osteopath. He graduated from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2008.
His respect and interest in Osteopathy began after being treated by Osteopaths for his rugby injuries. Kaps liked the idea of putting the body in the best position to heal itself and he still follows that principle in his practice.
As well as being an Osteopath, Kaps teaches PE and Biology at Tiffin School, Kingston, which he finds rewarding and fun. He often helps young athletes with their training programmes and recovery strategies. He enjoys playing different kinds of sports, which has taught him a lot about movement, limitations, and development through his own experiences.
Kaps has a very structured approach to treatment. He thinks it’s important to tailor treatments to individual lifestyles and body types. The philosophy of ‘movement breeding movement’ is the basis of his treatment process.
Abi is a Homoeopath and earned her BSc in Health Sciences and Homoeopathic Medicine in 2001.
Over the years Abi has been involved in teaching courses on homoeopathy and health sciences as well as working within the complementary therapy team at the Royal Surrey Hospital bringing homoeopathy to cancer patients. She is passionate about providing safe and effective healthcare and helping people with challenging health conditions.
Abi’s long-standing area of interest is in mental health, both in adults and children. The beauty of homoeopathy is that it works well when used either alone or alongside orthodox medicine. Homoeopathy has an outstanding profile for being exceptionally safe in pregnancy, infants and the infirm.
Outside of work, she’s a mother of two, a long-time reader of all things medical and an enthusiastic mountain biker.
Elsa is an Osteopath and a graduate of the University College of Osteopathy, formerly known as the British School of Osteopathy.
Elsa has always been interested in people and empathic towards them since she was a child. That’s why she started studying medicine in France. However, Elsa soon realised that medicine was not for her. It focused too much on treating symptoms rather than preventing them, curing diseases rather than patients. She wanted to do more than that. She wanted to help people heal holistically and naturally.
It’s at that point that Elsa decided to become an Osteopath, as she had experienced the benefits of osteopathy herself. She loves being able to help her patients achieve their goals, whether it’s managing their pain, improving their mobility, or educating them on the mechanism of injury and how to improve their quality of life.
Elsa uses a structural approach to osteopathy, but she also likes to incorporate functional and cranial osteopathy techniques to tailor her treatments to everyone’s needs and preferences.
My passion is Reflexology and I gained my IEB diploma at The Surrey School of Reflexology at distinction level before becoming a full member of the Association of Reflexologists. I then realised I wanted to help those who were pregnant and so I hold specific qualifications for labour and pregnancy treatment as well which I love.
The conditions Reflexology can help with continue to amaze me, and seeing my clients improved wellbeing and happiness during their journey with me has to be the most satisfying part. Reflexology is not just for feet! I am also qualified in hand Reflexology, enabling me to practice on hands as an alternative for those not comfortable with treatment on their feet.
Outside of the clinic, I have a passion for animals so you’ll find me either walking my two dogs, or horse riding when I get the opportunity.
Joanna is a Senior Massage Therapist and exercise rehabilitation therapist. She studied Sports Therapy at Nescot College and earned a BSc (Hons) degree in sports therapy in 2021. She also has qualifications in dry cupping, shockwave therapy, ultrasound, and taping.
Joanna has a background in running and weightlifting, which began her fascination with the body and hence why she studied massage therapy.
She is passionate about helping people out of pain, no matter their age or joint mobility, and helping people reach their goals, whether that is increased performance, reduced pain, stress relief, better sleep, or symptom management with exercise rehabilitation.
In Joanna’s sessions with clients, she loves to see how clinical therapy helps restore function and mobility, manage, or relieve pain, and help patients return to a normal lifestyle.
Michael is a Senior Osteopath and graduated from the Surrey Institute of Osteopathic Medicine in 2016, with a background in massage therapy.
Michael has a great understanding of movement biomechanics and injuries related to many sports, having previously worked as part of a team supporting semi-professional footballers and boxers.
Using a structural approach, his first aim is to relieve pain, using a variety of soft tissue techniques and treatment modalities such as interferential therapy and ultrasound therapy. Working on the principle that structure governs function, Michael will identify imbalances and work with clients to meet their individual needs to rehabilitate and strengthen areas of weakness.
He believes that although not everyone is an athlete, they should be able to perform at their best in daily activities and not be limited by pain or apprehension. His focus will be on helping his clients reach their goal whether it be walking to the shops without pain or achieving excellence in their chosen sport.
Payal is a fully qualified Osteopath with a master’s degree from Swansea University.
Payal has always been intrigued and fascinated by the human body and mind, and her desire to help others is why she chose osteopathy as her career. Nothing brings Payal more joy than working with patients to aid their recovery from problems due to sporting injuries, work/life related stress, postural strain, accidents or arthritis conditions.
The thing she loves most about osteopathy is the ability to empower patients to manage their pain better and improve their overall well-being and quality of life.
Payal brings a structural and holistic approach, with warmth and care, to the treatment of her patients. Along with preventative care, she focuses on restoring muscle and joint function in clients who are recovering from musculoskeletal injuries. Her diverse range of ‘hands-on’ treatments include soft/deep tissue massage, joint mobilisations, manipulations, myofascial/trigger point release, lymph drainage, neuromuscular and muscle energy techniques.
She also provides relevant advice and a tailored plan built just for her patients and specific exercises that will kick-start their road to recovery.

Lucy is an Osteopath who works with Structural and Cranial Osteopathy. She graduated from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2007. She also has completed various post-graduate courses in Paediatrics, which is her special interest.
Lucy loves working with the whole family, including mums, dads, babies, siblings and grandparents! As a mum of two herself, she knows the impact Osteopathy can have on the whole family, in particular women during pregnancy and after giving birth by treating low back, pelvic and hip pain, sciatica, and posture-related pain when breastfeeding.
With babies, her goal is to release any restrictions in the body causing the unsettling of the client’s baby’s usual feeding, sleeping, breathing and digestion, and restore normal function to help both baby and mum feel less distressed, relaxed, calmer, and happier.
Cranial Osteopathy isn’t just for young families though; Lucy uses the same technique to enhance her treatments for adult patients.
When she’s not at work or taking care of her children, she enjoys practising meditation and Yoga to keep herself balanced and healthy. Lucy also likes to bake cakes to de-stress and treat herself after a busy week.

Her goal is to help patients live without pain or physical barriers with a tailored treatment plan utilising her structural and holistic approach.
Taking a thorough case history and conducting a full assessment, she uses various ‘hands-on’ techniques such as mobilisations, manipulations, massage, neuromuscular and muscle energy techniques, and an exercise prescription to improve a patient’s health and function to prevent future injuries. She has experience working in GP, NHS and private practices dealing with many musculoskeletal injuries from acute to chronic.
Outside of work, she enjoys swimming, cooking, crafting and DIY. She has a nurturing and ambitious personality that helps her communicate and relate to people from all walks of life.

After qualifying in 2011 Suzan worked in hotels for the first couple of years, but soon came to realise that her enthusiasm and interest in health and fitness meant she was better suited to sports therapy, deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy.
She now treats a variety of clients ranging from marathon runners, boxers, sports enthusiasts, and mums (and being a mum to two very active boys she knows how hard that can be on the body)!
Suzan believes that every client that she meets has unique needs based on their lifestyle and symptoms, so her treatments are bespoke and tailored to each person.
