Welcome to Purley Osteopaths

Osteopathy is a regulated form of primary health care that utilises manual techniques (such as mobilisation, soft tissue techniques and manipulations) to optimise the body’s innate healing capability in order to improve various symptoms. As Osteopaths, we are trained to assess for areas of restriction (lack of movement) in all bodily tissues. We are both passionate about osteopathic philosophy and applying the main osteopathic principles;

– The body is a unit, and the person represents a combination of body, mind and spirit.

– The body is capable of self-regulation, self-healing and health maintenance.

– Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated.


Osteopathy can be used to treat:

  • Arthritic pain
  • Circulatory problems
  • Cramp
  • Digestion problems
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Frozen shoulder/ shoulder and elbow pain/ tennis elbow
  • Headache arising from the neck
  • Joint pains including hip and knee pain from osteoarthritis
  • General, acute & chronic backache, back pain (not arising from injury or accident)
  • Generalised aches and pains
  • Inability to relax
  • Lumbago
  • Migraine prevention
  • Minor sports injuries and tensions
  • Muscle spasms
  • Neuralgia
  • Rheumatic pain
  • Sciatica
  • Uncomplicated mechanical neck pain

We are registered with the General Osteopathic Council, members of the Institute of Osteopathy and are fully insured.

What To Expect


This consultation is all about you; together we will explore your current state, the development of your complaints, what you have tried previously to relieve your complaints and where you want to get to.

We will then look at whether we can provide a solution and if we are the best match to work with you on this.

First Session:

We will start with taking a detailed case history including questions about your past medical history and current lifestyle, followed by a full assessment to help form a diagnosis. After discussing this with you and gaining any relevant consent, we will then progress with treatment and give you any advice that we feel is appropriate.       

Follow-up Sessions:

We will start with a quick review to discuss any changes in your complaints since your previous session and then move onto appropriate assessment, treatment and advice.

What does treatment involve?

If it is determined to be safe and appropriate then you will be treated with a variety of manual therapy techniques (mobilisation, soft tissue techniques and manipulations). Osteopathic treatment can be divided into three main bodily systems; musculoskeletal (muscles, joints, ligament etc.), visceral (the organs and their attachments) and craniosacral (the cranium and the meninges). Based on the case history and findings from the assessment a treatment strategy will be proposed and explained that is tailored to you.

You may be required to undress to your underwear for your treatment – this allows for full assessment and treatment – so please wear suitable clothes or bring a t-shirt and shorts with you if you would prefer to wear those. You may also bring a friend or relative with you to any of your sessions.

Meet Your Osteopaths

Simon Rogers

I have recently returned to live and work in the UK after emigrating to the Netherlands to study Physiotherapy just over 12 years ago. I stayed in the Netherlands to work as a lecturer of anatomy for three years and as a Physiotherapist for seven years at a well-established and respected multidisciplinary clinic. In 2011, I commenced a 5-year part-time program with the International Academy of Osteopathy in Antwerp and became a UK registered Osteopath in February 2017.

My education integrated craniosacral, visceral and musculoskeletal techniques together into a whole-body approach of assessment, diagnosis and treatment. I believe my education and previous experience has given me a fantastic foundation for an exciting career in Osteopathy.

I am passionate about what osteopathy has to offer people of all ages and with varied complaints.

I hope to see you soon and please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I will be pleased to help!

Amy Osland

I have always been interested in health and fitness and this has led me down many paths but I settled on the benefits and knowledge that I believe Osteopathy can give. I qualified with an MSc in Osteopathy from Oxford Brookes University in 2014 and completed my dissertation on the osteopathic treatment of pregnancy-related back and pelvic pain (which I have continued interest in). Combining my degree with my sports massage and medical acupuncture qualifications and Pilates instruction gives a holistic approach to anyone and everyone becoming as fighting fit as possible. I aim to work in partnership with my patients and to enable them and provide treatment until they are functioning optimally. I thoroughly enjoy working as a therapist and meeting and treating patients from all walks of life.

In my spare time I enjoy exercising, cooking and exploring new places. I teach between 4-6 Pilates classes a week as well which I love doing and I am a fundraising volunteer at the South East Cancer Help Centre in Purley.
