Lucy Samantha Rayner B.Ost MICO DPO obtained her Bachelor of Osteopathy degree in 2005 from the British School of Osteopathy.

Having taught herself to massage by the age of six, she found her calling into Osteopathy at the age of eight, with her passion for Osteopathy encouraged by continual further study in its science and art of technique to expand the reach of Osteopathy further to those in need.

Lucy’s special interest is in how Osteopathy can aid those with experiences of emotional and physical trauma, and stress (including birth and post partum period) – and has lectured in this field, identifying emotional issues which may make recovery from physical issues more difficult to overcome.

Fascinated with the potential for lifelong optimum health using early intervention, Lucy studied Paediatrics to discover and create the best course of preventative healthcare treatment. Designed for infants and children to maintain full health into adolescence and adulthood, this approach aims to prevent chronic illness caused by long term inflammation and lifestyle issues.

Lucy's combined approach to maximise airway health, dental development, digestive health, nutrition, sleep and immune health on top of posture and whole body integration gives a unique and thorough holistic strategy to treatment. 

Fascinated with nature and biology, Lucy is a keen gardener and spends a significant amount of time on her London allotment, growing fruit and vegetables organically, with the understanding that the quality of the soil is key to the nutritional content of what it produces, and what we consume- knowing that our health begins with what we eat and breathe.

Lucy has a keen interest in many various sports, including weight training.

Since qualifying, Lucy has worked at various locations in London, and internationally in General and Family Osteopathic Medicine, and in Sports Medicine and Pitch-Side Medical care with Chingford Rugby Team and Athletics team Newham and Essex Beagles.

Lucy continued her postgraduate studies into Classical Osteopathy at The Institute of Classical Osteopathy with clinical residence at the London Centre for Classical Osteopathy in Holloway, London.

Lucy has undergone further postgraduate osteopathic training in Pregnancy and Obstetrics, and Paediatric Osteopathy with the Foundation of Paediatric Osteopathy with further clinical residence at the Osteopathic Centre for Children, obtaining a specialist qualification, the Diploma in Paediatric Osteopathy in 2018.

Lucy is currently undertaking postgraduate training in Women's Health Osteopathy, with the Molinari Institute of Health, with clinical observations at the Molinari Women's Health Osteopathy Clinic. 

Lucy is registered with The General Osteopathic Council (GOsC), and The Institute of Classical Osteopathy (ICO), and is a member of the Institute of Osteopathy (iO).
