Kingswood & Tadworth Osteopathic Clinic, Walton-on-the-Hill

Home Page


In line with Public Health England and our governing bodies’ guidelines, I am pleased to announce that the clinic will be reopening for face to face appointments from Monday 1 June. Appointment times will now be staggered in line with our COVID-19 infection prevention protocol and extensive precautions are being taken to minimise the risk of infection.

Our policy documents and procedures regarding this are available to view on request. A COVID-19 risk assessment and triage process will be carried out at the time of booking to assess if you are appropriate for an appointment at this stage; if not then telephone and video consultations have proved to be very effective.

As we are having to triage all patients for safety reasons in this current climate, I will be handling all phone calls personally. Please continue to call 01737 818000 for bookings and enquiries and leave a message if I am unavailable; I will return your call as soon as I can. Alternatively, you can email me on

The health and safety of all our patients and the wider community is of paramount importance. We have many ways of supporting you; either face to face or virtually. Please get in touch and find out how we can help you.

“Sophie has been our family osteopath for the last 8 years. She has resolved a whole range of different injuries and conditions for all members of our family with ease. Sophie has shown genuine empathy and concern for us as patients and has an extremely pleasant manner.

The doctor may tell you to take painkillers when you have a problem with your back or a sports injury in the hope that the problem goes away. If you want to address the problem and fix it, rather than ignoring it and taking drugs, you need to see Sophie.”

“Sophie has been treating me for the last eight years and in that time has addressed each of my sports injuries with great skill and insight. She is highly professional whilst being warm and understanding. Absolutely first class.”

“Safe in our hands”

All osteopaths are regulated as are doctors and nurses and are registered with the General Osteopathic Council. We have to undergo rigorous training on a four or five year full time degree with at least 1000 hours supervised clinical practice. We adhere to a strict code of conduct and practice and undergo annually assessed continuing professional development.

“I have suffered from chronic neck pain and headaches for over 10 years. During that time I consulted several doctors, physiotherapists and acupuncturists but have had no lasting relief. I went to see Sophie at the beginning of the year, feeling thoroughly fed up. Sophie has been the only practitioner that actually went to the root cause of the pain. She is incredibly skilful and genuinely cares. I am so glad that I found her. She has made a massive difference to the quality of my life and I can’t thank her enough.”

Jessica Gibson.

What happens during a consultation?

Your first consultation usually takes an hour during which time the osteopath will take a full case history and examination. You will be normally be asked to undress to your underwear, however you may wear a pair of shorts or loose clothing if you feel more comfortable.

After diagnosis, the osteopath will discuss with you their findings and will then use a variety of manual techniques suited to you which may include:

  1. joint articulation
  2. high velocity thrust techniques (HVTs)
  3. soft tissue massage
  4. gentle releasing techniques
  5. dry needling (myofascial acupuncture)

You may then be given advice on posture, exercises or stretches to do at home. The number of treatments required will depend from person to person, but usually the sooner a problem is addressed the better the outcome for the patient.
