  Rachel Brown

BSc(Hons) Ost. Med., N.D.



Rachel graduated from the British College of Naturopathy and Osteopathy (since been renamed as British College of Osteopathic Medicine) in London.   She graduated with a BSc (Hons)  in Osteopathic Medicine and a Diploma in Naturopathy.  Rachel moved from Watford to Ilkeston in 1999 to set up the Ilkeston Osteopathy Centre after buying the business from the previous Osteopath. She lives in South Derbyshire with her husband, son and daughter.  In her spare time she enjoys paddle boarding, yoga, cycling and running - anything outdoors! 

Prior to training as an Osteopath Rachel did a degree in Human Biology and Sports studies at the University of Wolverhampton.  She has always had a huge interest in how the body functions, loves sport, and osteopathy was always going to be her intended career.

Rachel has years of experience in successfully treating people from all walks of life including children, pregnant women, sports enthusiasts, the desk bound and the elderly.  She particularly enjoys treating patients with M.E, arthritis and prenatal and postnatal women, and loves seeing people reach their optimum health again.

"I am a mother of two teenage daughters who suffer with the chronic illness Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.  We have been coming to Ilkeston Osteopathy Centre now for just over 3 years.  The treatments have impacted greatly on the girls' health and wellbeing by relieving their chronic pain and other associated problems.

Ilkeston Osteopathy Centre provides us with excellent, professional but friendly service.  The help, advice, support and treatments they have been given by the osteopaths have enabled us to get the girls off pain medication, relieve many of their symptoms and help them manage their illness.

I would highly recommend this practice because they take good care of their clients; offer a high quality service in a friendly and relaxed environment.  They offer a holistic approach to treatment, from providing the physical therapy during each session to offering sound advice to help you to find the best way to either manage or treat your condition in a way that best suits your lifestyle and capabilities."  Tanya Mawer
