Karen Phillips D.O. – Senior Associate Osteopath

Allied Health Professional Recognised by NHS England

Having been a professionally trained dancer studying at a London stage school under the likes of Arlene Phillips, she went on to work in France for several years as a Classical Ballet dancer.  She then trained as a Yoga teacher, which led on to her interest and training as an Osteopath at the British School of Osteopathy, graduating in 1986.

Having two sport-loving sons, Karen has been introduced into the world of Football, Cricket and Rugby.  (She failed to tempt them into the world of Ballet).  Her eldest son played Rugby for England under-16’s and has been treated with Osteopathy by Karen through several Rugby injuries.

Karen is keen to encourage her patients to find an exercise regime that they will enjoy and complement their Osteopathic Care.

She treats all ages and has an interest in using Osteopathy’s gentler techniques such as Cranial Osteopathy when requested by her patients or when required.
