Olivia Rowley BOst
Structural & Cranial Osteopath
"Our bodies are rarely perfect but can often be quite easily treated to improve function and decrease discomfort."
Olivia Rowley qualified from the British School of Osteopathy with Distinction for clinical excellence in 2009. Olivia is fully registered with the General Osteopathic Council and Institute of Osteopathy and has undertaken postgraduate training in Cranial and Paediatric Osteopathy at the Sutherland Cranial College and London School of Osteopathy. Olivia has also trained in dry needling and sports massage and has an interest in Migraine and headache prevention and management with CPD with Osteopaths for Progress in Headaches and Migraines (OPHM).
Olivia has been in practice since 2009 and has worked both privately and treating NHS patients, based in London, Brighton, Hove and Steyning.
Olivia likes to get to the cause of each patient's discomfort to help you understand why your body is behaving the way it is. Through greater understanding, manual treatment and by providing individually-tailored lifestyle and exercise advice to her patients, Olivia feels this is the key to managing current problems and avoiding future discomfort.
Having two children of her own, Olivia knows the importance of helping mothers throughout pregnancy and in the months after childbirth as their bodies adapt to postural change and the physical challenges of looking after little ones.
Olivia’s own experience growing up as a gymnast, hockey player and horse rider have taught her the legacy old sporting injuries can play and how impacts such as road traffic accidents can influence body patterns.

Osteopath & Holistic Pelvic Care
Specialist in Women's health osteopathy
Clio graduated in osteopathy and naturopathy with distinction from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine. Her journey into osteopathy began after her own positive experience of treatment and the drive to work with others to help them feel and move better.
Clio treats a wide variety of patients including sports and movement enthusiasts, desk workers, newborns and the elderly. She has undertaken post-graduate studies in cranial osteopathy, osteopathy for babies and Holistic Pelvic Care. She is currently specialising in women’s health osteopathy with the Molinari Institute of Health, enabling her to develop a tailored and integrated approach for pregnant, pre- and post-natal women.
Clio uses a range of different approaches in her sessions, including structural, visceral and cranial osteopathy, that she adapts for each individual to help their body back into balance.
Clio has a background in contemporary dance and capoeira, and is also a trained scaravelli style yoga teacher, all of which she draws on to tailor movement and exercises for injury prevention and rehabilitation. Advice on nutrition and lifestyle is also offered where needed.
Clio is registered with the General Osteopathic Council and a member of the Institute of Osteopathy.
Holistic Pelvic Care
Clio has completed further training in Holistic Pelvic Care as taught by women’s health physiotherapist Tami Lynn Kent. Holistic Pelvic Care involves gentle internal massage of the pelvic floor muscles and fascia alongside attending to emotional holding patterns in the pelvic bowl using dialogue, visualisation, breath-work and abdominal contact. Treatments help re-balance the pelvic floor and increase blood flow to pelvic organs, which can improve problematic symptoms.
