Lee Clarke BOst (Hons) Osteopath

Clinical Director

Lee became interested in osteopathy having developed his own neck and shoulder problems causing pain, sleepless nights, time off work and left him unable to participate in activities he enjoyed. A friend recommended he visit an osteopath and he was amazed by how much-improved mobility and pain relief he experienced following a hands-on, osteopathic treatment.

This led him to question and research how osteopathy works. Lee began to recognise that retraining as an osteopath would provide him with an opportunity to combine several areas he’s passionate about; health, using his hands, problem-solving, helping and meeting people. In 2014 he began studying at The College of Osteopaths undertaking a five-year degree where he achieved 1st Class honours.

During his training, Lee implemented osteopathic care programmes for a diverse group of patients from children to the elderly within two separate college clinics; Marylebone – London and Borehamwood – Hertfordshire. He studied human anatomy, biomechanics, physiology, pathology, nutrition and underwent 1200 hours of clinical training.

In His Free Time

“I love spending time with my wife and son, we all share a passion for wildlife, nature and enjoy country and coastal walks with our dogs. We are foodies and enjoy home cooking, baking and entertaining our friends and family. I am a keen football fan, I go fishing, hiking and practice Pilates.”

Lee’s Osteopathic Journey

Whilst establishing his practice, Lee undertook an internship with Speedworks London, working alongside professional coaches, and other osteopaths as part of a medical team, providing injury assessment, prevention and rehabilitation for elite British and Irish athletes.
