Nigel Kettle

I was born in 1962 and initially trained at the ‘Raworth Centre’ in Dorking as a 'Complementary Health Practitioner', achieving my diploma in 1990. To begin with, I specialised in sports massage and other remedial therapies, working alongside Osteopaths in their practices. This exposure to hands-on Osteopathy, seeing its scope and effectiveness in the treatment of a wide variety of musculoskeletal and other conditions inspired me to train as an Osteopath.

Osteopath training is demanding and lengthy. Recognised qualifications are only available from Osteopathic educational institutions accredited by the General Osteopathic Council. I studied at the British School of Osteopathy a world renowned Osteopathic institution and the oldest school of its type in the UK. In 1999, after four years of full time study, I qualified as a Registered Osteopath with a 2.1 Bachelor of Science Honours degree.

I have my own clinic in Mayfield East Sussex and also work in private practices at Reigate and Epsom in Surrey. I also teach; currently I am principal lecturer in Osteopathic Technique at the Surrey Institute of Osteopathic Medicine, a recognised qualification (RQ) Osteopathic degree course based in North East Surrey College of Technology in Ewell.

I am interested in all aspects of Osteopathic practice but my main focus is structural Osteopathy working with patients on a one-to-one basis. Over the years I have gained a wealth of experience in the treatment of a wide variety of conditions and age groups, always obtaining great satisfaction from successful individual outcomes.
