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.

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.

‘Life is great, but massage makes it better’
I am Swedish and a mother of two amazingly crazy boys. I became a massage therapist because I have always been passionate about health and wellness. I have always loved fitness and exercise in any form, spinning, TRX, Cross fit and taking part in Spartan competitions are just a few things I adore doing, and so looking after my body has always been a must. Over the years I realised that I had a need to help others and this is when I decided to train in Swedish massage. I studied at the London School of Massage, I loved Swedish massage so much that I carried on and studied deep tissue massage and have loved seeing the relief it has given to so many people. I love treating every person as an individual and always cater my treatments to suit the needs of the client.
Swedish massage is a firm yet relaxing whole body massage that is aimed not only to relax your muscles, but to relax your mind. Stimulating circulation to muscles in this way can be very effective in helping muscles to stay relaxed and calm. Sports massage is a much firmer massage. This therapy is aimed to help regenerate and rejuvenate muscles especially before and after exercise, however you can have sports massage even if you have really tight stubborn muscles.

My love of Reflexology was a result of a gifted treatment from a friend, this ignited my fascination with how effective it can be and wanting to further understand how it worked.
My passion is Reflexology and I gained my IEB diploma at The Surrey School of Reflexology at distinction level before becoming a full member of the Association of Reflexologists. I then realised I wanted to help those who were pregnant and so I hold specific qualifications for labour and pregnancy treatment as well which I love.
The conditions Reflexology can help with continue to amaze me, and seeing my clients improved wellbeing and happiness during their journey with me has to be the most satisfying part. Reflexology is not just for feet! I am also qualified in hand Reflexology, enabling me to practice on hands as an alternative for those not comfortable with treatment on their feet.
Outside of the clinic, I have a passion for animals so you’ll find me either walking my two dogs, or horse riding when I get the opportunity.
Regular Reflexology treatments can help improve the following:
• Depression, stress & anxiety • Musculoskeletal and joint pain • Migraines • Cholesterol • Balance of hormones • Body detoxification • Immune system • Sleep patterns • Digestive problems • Existing chronic health conditions • Circulation and blood pressure • Pregnancy and labour
My name is Claire Churchill. 4 years ago, I became severely ill with an inner ear disorder and was told I would have to rest and wait until my brain/body compensated for the damage. With 2 small children at home, I didn’t have time on my side and felt totally vulnerable and anxious. Through the mist of trying several therapies, I stumbled across a Systematic Kinesiologist. This was the moment I found a therapy that is safe, non-invasive, drug free and unique. I found answers for a condition no one else could help me with, and my passion was ignited in this therapy and I decided to learn it for myself.
As a holistic therapy, Kinesiology looks beyond the symptoms to the root cause and then finds out, through muscle testing, what will bring the client’s body back into balance using specialised techniques involving lymphatic massage, energetic balancing, nutrition & emotional work. There is no room for error as the body’s bio-chemical feedback is never wrong!
Systematic Kinesiology can help the following symptoms:
• Fatigue • Emotional problems Fear and Phobias Physical Injuries Autoimmune disorders • Digestive disorders, including allergies, IBS, food sensitivities, nutritional deficiencies, hiatus hernia, acid reflux • Nutritional deficiencies • Emotional problems including depression, stress, anxiety, trauma, phobias, bereavement • Sleep related problems • Immune system problems including toxicity Whiplash • Hormonal imbalances including menopause, infertility • Autoimmune Disorders • Stress related issues
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.
