Clare Shaw – BSc (Hons) Ost Med
Registered Osteopath and Massage Therapist
Clare completed a 4 year degree at the John Wernham College of Classical Osteopathy in Ewell,
Epsom and qualified with a BSc(Hons) in Osteopathic Medicine in 2003. She then completed post
graduate courses in Cranial osteopathy and spent several years working in clinics treating mainly
structurally but with a focus also on pregnancy, babies/children.
Since 2005 Clare has also been practice manager and director of Tunbridge Wells Osteopaths, a
busy multidisciplinary practice. Clare now works as an Osteopath in Tunbridge Wells, Sanderstead
and Forest row.
After experiencing Lomi Lomi massage for herself whilst in Hawaii and realising how well it
complemented osteopathy with its principles and approach to the body, Clare took the opportunity
to learn this massage whilst taking a break from Osteopathic practice to have children. She
completed training in Lomi Lomi massage and pregnancy massage through several workshops
with a Hawaiian practitioner who came to Europe to teach the massage.
Over the years Clare has created a very unique treatment incorporating the Lomi Lomi techniques
with a focus to align and balance the body using osteopathic techniques and principles specific to
the individual’s condition and need where appropriate.
For some a relaxing massage is what they need, for others the treatment can focus on problem
areas and specific injuries or reoccurring injuries. A postural assessment looks for structural
imbalance and immobility. The aim of the treatment is to find structural balance, reduced tension within the muscles which encourages free flow of the blood, lymph and nervous systems and in turn energetic balance and relaxation.
Clare attends regular post graduate courses to enhance, deepen and broaden her knowledge and
skills and is available in Tunbridge Wells and Forest row for treatments.
