Registered Osteopath, Medical Acupuncturist, Clinical Rehabilitation Practitioner, Yoga and Self Care for Healthy Living


"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...Come and join me and the other health professionals at Amberside Well-being in raising money for Macmillan, this Saturday morning.

25% of any treatments booked at the coffee morning will be donated too.

You can meet the team and it's the ideal opportunity to discover how we can help you be healthier mentally and physically on your cancer journey, or if you're a carer- how to look after your own energy and well-being.

On Sunday 7th October I'm running a Yoga and Somatics workshop  at Number 28 in Belper Marketplace 1-4. Perfect for teaching your spine better movement and postural habits to keep it supple, strong and healthy. And did I mention relaxation?

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

I've booked the same lovely venue for a Yin yoga workshop on Sunday November 18th 10.30-1.30 (£30). This is very gentle and involves relaxing into supported positions for a few minutes. It's been overwhelmingly popular in classes and really quietens the mind...

And remember, I have the skills and knowledge to help you with most health issues. Most doctors are untrained in 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.

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