You’re In Safe Osteopathic Hands
Choosing to consult with an osteopath for the first time can be a significant step toward improving your well-being. When you decide to visit our osteopathic clinic, you’re choosing a team with decades of experience. All our osteopaths in Rainham and Maidstone — Tim, Lauren, Carl, Matt, Rhianna, and Alix — have helped people of all ages recover from a myriad of painful conditions. We aim to provide a professional and welcoming environment, so you feel at ease during your visit. All our practitioners are registered with the General Osteopathic Council, ensuring that you’re in safe hands.
When You Arrive
As you step into our clinic, you’ll be greeted at reception where you can relax before your appointment begins. We understand that the first visit can be nerve-wracking for some, and we do our best to make you feel comfortable right from the start.
Case History: Getting to Know You
Before we delve into the treatment, we aim to understand your situation thoroughly. We take a detailed case history, asking about where the pain is, any possible causes, previous injuries, and other key factors. This conversation enables us to pinpoint what we need to examine further, thereby allowing us to provide a more accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan.
The next step involves a rigorous neurological, orthopaedic, and osteopathic examination. This allows us to narrow down the cause of your problem and understand the best treatment plan for you. As osteopaths, we look at the whole body because issues are often influenced by other areas.
Tailored Treatment Plan
Once we have a clear diagnosis, we begin your individualised osteopathic treatment. The techniques we use are based on your age, fitness levels, and specific diagnosis. We may employ a mix of joint mobilisation or manipulation, massage, and individually tailored exercises to address and alleviate your condition.

Your Exercises and Lifestyle Advice
In addition to hands-on treatment, we find that exercises and lifestyle advice can significantly improve your condition. All our recommendations are written down or provided through video resources for your convenience, so you don’t have to worry about forgetting any of the advice given during your appointment.
Costs and What to Bring
The initial assessment at our clinic costs £45, and each follow-up session is also £45. You don’t need to bring anything special for your appointment, but we recommend wearing loose, comfortable clothing to make the examination process easier and more comfortable.
