"An exceptionally gifted and knowledgeable practitioner who has made a huge difference to my wellbeing.

I have been amazed at the benefits received from my consultations with Rachel. She has incisive insights into how your body is operating, which she helps you to understand in order to realise why and how your problems have developed, thus enabling you to begin to learn how to correct this. Her way of working with, rather than on you is powerful and effective, as you carry this with you in all you do.

Her positive approach is reassuring and encouraging mentally, whilst the practical results always leave you feeling so much more comfortable physically. I only wish I had known about Rachel years ago!" 


Qi to Health osteopaths is based at Amberside Wellbeing, a short drive from Matlock, Belper, Alfreton, Wirksworth and Ripley in the Amber Valley area of Derbyshire.

The practice is ground level and easily-accessible from the M1, A6, A38 and A610 with free parking right outside.

The Latest Practice News

Hello there! 

We have lots of goodies instore for you this Autumn...

Firstly, I'm looking at running a Yoga and Meditation course for Stress and Anxiety up In Crich. Good for adults and teens/sensible youngsters wanting to learn how to handle, survive and thrive in today's challenging environment.

On Sunday 18th November I'm running a Deeply relaxing Yin Yoga workshop  at Number 28 in Belper Marketplace 1030-1.30. Perfect for teaching your muscles to let go of tension. This has been incredibly popular with all my classes and involves holding gentle, supported postures for several minutes. (Lots of lying down on the job!)

Places are limited, so do book in advance with me (£30). Open to all. 

I've booked the same lovely venue for an Ayurveda workshop on Sunday December 2nd 1.00-4.00 (price tbc). This ancient Indian "science of life" is the perfect complement to Yoga and teaches you about your personal constitution/type and what to eat and practice to find balance. 

And remember, I have the skills and knowledge to help you with most health issues. Most doctors are untrained in really helping musculoskeletal pain, so won't always be your best call for knowing how to get out of pain or prevent pain and stiffness reoccurring. 

I'm also interested in helping those of you struggling to get enough sleep...It's a massive problem and can really affect your health in ways you may already be feeling or have not made the connection.

So if you've been told there's nothing can be done... come into see me and let's prove them wrong!
