Registered Osteopath, Clinical Rehabilitation Practitioner, Medical Acupuncturist, Yoga for Backs, Beginners, and Self Care.
If you're looking for help with your health, or a second professional opinion, you've come to the right place
And if you've only experienced NHS treatment before, you may have no idea of how osteopathy, rehabilitation or other effective complementary therapies and holistic approaches like yoga could help your back pain and sciatica, neck pain, shoulder, knee and hip and ankle injuries, as well as bigger issues like tension, insomnia and stress.
Your personal issue may not be on the brief list of things I see most frequently, but the truth is that most people will find genuine answers, relief, recovery and practical ways forward here.
What is offered at Qi to Health is very different and quite unique to my continued professional training, personal interests and experience 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 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.
Latest Practice News Hello there! It may be cold outside, but the heated couch in the treatment room is warm and many people say at the end of the treatment something along the lines of "Can you just leave me here under the blanket?"
New year is a great time to get your health in order, look at how you'd like life to be. So much is possible now. If you're out of touch with all the great strides forwards in medicine a great book to check out is "The Brain that Changes Itself. Stories of personal triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science" by Norman Doidge M.D. And for better understanding of your own body, Bill Bryson's "The Body: a guide for occupants" is a fascinating, illuminating read.
One of my main joys is helping people see what's possible and helping them to achieve this for themselves. The bar is often set so depressingly low for pain and recovery. One of the most dreadful things I hear is people wanting to "maintain" their state and just stop it deteriorating... Let's raise that bar! We all should expect better... I'm always delighted to provide motivation and cheerleading, as well as assessment to tell you what's going on and treatment, advice, pain-relieving techniques and practical approaches to help you get back to normal, happy function. This year I've set myself the challenge of swimming across the Bosphorus… It's more than I can do at this minute, but I know with some expert coaching, getting fitter and improving my technique, sea-skills and putting the hours in the pool...really do-able. I'd love to hear and help you with your personal triumph.
"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."
So if you've been told there's nothing can be done... come into see me and let's prove them wrong!
And have a happy, healthy 2020!
