Rachel Jennings BA(Hons) BSc(Hons)Ost PGCE BMAS

Registered Osteopath, Clinical Rehabilitation Practitioner, Medical Acupuncturist, Yoga for Backs, Stress and Anxiety courses and Self Care workshops.

If you've only experienced NHS treatment before, you may have no idea of osteopathy or other effective complementary therapies and holistic approaches to help back pain and sciatica, neck pain, shoulder, knee and hip and ankle injuries. 

What is offered here is very different and quite unique to my continued professional interests and development since graduating back in 2002.

If you've been told nothing can be done, come and have a chat. I'd love to help you find relief, comfort, mobility, hope and support you on your journey to better health.

"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!" 


Rachel Jennings, osteopath 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! 

If you're not sure how much of a gift osteopathy is, have a read of one person's experience from her review on my facebook page.

"I do not wait for my problems to get better on their own anymore. I go to Rachel Jennings and feel better before I leave. I never know what to expect, each time is different, but I always come out wiser and more confident. I've gone from being unable to stand on my right leg, due to severe sciatica, to actually planning my future again. 30 years of pain has vanished! How awesome is that?! I never got those results from the NHS."

If you've never tried Yoga or meditation, why not join the millions worldwide who love it and understand how amazing it can be for mental, emotional as well as physical well-being.

If stress or pain are involved, Yoga is really worth exploring as a solution.

If you're looking for an active approach to helping your back using Yoga, I'm planning the next Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs course.

Phone or drop me a message to register your interest and find out more.

Learning how to do the right thing for your back can make such a difference. Little wonder this course has had such great results in the world of back pain... 

And if you'd like to try some yoga therapy as a complete beginner, I have free Yoga for backs, sleep, stress and anxiety and (senior) men coming up in Crich. See Spring into March on this link...
