Principal Osteopath/Clinic Director
Reena heads up the RJ Osteopathic Clinic team, qualifying as a registered osteopath in 2001 from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine in London. She uses the traditional ‘structural’ approach to Osteopathy believing that ‘structure governs function’ i.e. if the structure is not right, how can it function correctly? With a keen interest in Body mechanics, Spinal alignment and Cranial osteopathy, Reena believes that ‘suffering should not be an option’ just get it sorted!
Reena is also trained to use Interferential therapy, Ultrasound and more recently completed a Kinesio-taping course to help postural adjustments. Reena has experience working in an extremely busy sports injury clinic, gymnasium, cranial osteopathy clinic and multi-disciplinary practice.
As well as being an Osteopath Reena is a qualified teacher and has lectured on the Osteopathy Degree course since 2004, since then she has lectured at the Italian School of Osteopathy (ISO) and teaches at the Surrey Institute of Osteopathic Medicine (SIOM) based at Nescot college in Ewell.
Michael Burrows, Bsc (hons) Ost Med
Michael Burrows graduated from the Surrey Institute of Osteopathic Medicine in 2016, with a background in massage therapy. Michael has a great understanding of movement mechanics and injuries related to many sports, having previously worked as part of a team supporting semi-professional footballers and boxers.
Using a structural approach Michael’s first aim is to relieve pain, using a variety of soft tissue techniques and treatment modalities such as inferential therapy and ultrasound therapy. Working on the principle that structure governs function he will identify imbalances and work with your individual needs to rehabilitate and strengthen areas of weakness.
Michael believes that although not everyone is an athlete, they should be able to perform at their best in daily activities and not be limited by pain or apprehension. His focus will be on helping you reach your goals whether it be walking to the shops without pain or reaching the top in your chosen sport.
Philomena Hunt joined our clinic in 2009 as our full-time receptionist and is the first point of contact for our patients. Apart from being behind the reception at the Clinic, Philomena was also qualified many years ago as a nurse. She has a keen interest in complimentary medicine and her background in nursing is a real asset to the RJ team as she has experience in helping people who are in a lot of pain.
