Gemma Horne - Osteopath and Clinic Director
Gemma graduated from the European School of Osteopathy (ESO) in 2010 and has since worked in busy clinics across Kent, Surrey and Essex.
Gemma treats a wide range of people and complaints including newborn babies and children, sports men and women as well as work and postural complaints. Gemma has also undertaken postgraduate training with Stuart McGregor at the OCA to enable her to treat horses and dogs with Osteopathy.
Prior to her Osteopathic training Gemma worked as a registered Veterinary nurse at a busy small animal clinic in Kent. As head nurse she led many health clinics for pets which sparked a wider interest in general health and wellbeing in both people and animals.
Outside of work Gemma has always been a keen horse rider owning horses since she was 10 and competing on the county show circuit as a teenager. Now Gemma's time is mostly spent with her young daughter and developing what she hopes to be a centre of excellence for health and wellbeing at Hever Castle Golf Club.
Rachel Leach - Osteopath
Rachel studied at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine for four years and graduated in 2019, achieving a Masters degree with distinction. Rachel then joined Gemma and Paul at Ingledale Therapy Centre in Oxted in November 2019 before coming to work here at Hever in February 2020.
Rachel's approach is holistic. Her treatment often involves discussing daily activities, sleeping position and work set-up, in order to identify what might be exacerbating your condition. In this way she aims to help you help yourself, and prevent the symptoms from reoccurring.
In her free time, Rachel enjoys performing in various shows as a dancer at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley. She has found osteopathy useful for helping her fellow dancers.
During her training she qualified in soft tissue massage techniques and therefore also offers massage for relaxation.
