My name is Karen Robinson –  I’ve been a practising qualified Osteopath since graduating from the European School of Osteopathy in 1997.

I’m Clinical Director at the Shefford Osteopathic Clinic, which I started  in 2000 with the aim of bringing the benefits of osteopathy to people in Bedfordshire.  Since I started the Clinic my team and I have helped over 20,000 patients enjoy life more due to:

  • Less pain
  • Greater mobility
  • Increased flexibility

My team and I are proactive about ongoing learning, keeping up-to-date with osteopathy and other areas of exercise and well-being. Many of us are actively involved with teaching osteopaths, shaping the future of our profession. Our aim is to help you to live your life with your body working as well as possible.
