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:
