Claire Arnold, BSc(Hons) Ost DPO


After completing a Human Biology degree at Kings College, London, Claire went on to graduate from the British School of Osteopathy in 2002. She locumed in a wide variety of clinics around the country before taking a 3 month sabbatical to travel around the world and on returning to the U.K. moved to and settled in Shropshire, joining the Osteopathic Health Centre in June 2008.

Claire completed the two year specialist postgraduate Diploma in Paediatric Osteopathy in 2005 at the Osteopathic Centre for Children Manchester, where she continued to work as a clinical Tutor until its closure in 2009. She now lectures in Anatomy and Physiology at Staffordshire University on their undergraduate osteopathic programme. Claire loves to utilise both structural and cranial techniques to treat a wide range of patients in addition to her specialist field of paediatrics and is currently undertaking training in the Biodynamic Osteopathic approach to extend her range of treatment modalities.

“Osteopathy inspires and excites me. I never tire of meeting new people and explaining how bodies tick!”

Continual Professional Development (CPD)

2013: Claire says, "I completed phase 5 (of 7) of the Biodynamic Osteopathy Programme, further developing my techniques, giving me new ideas for approaches to treatment whilst challenging my concepts of health and healing. I have found that patients have really benefited from me incorporating these new ideas into my treatments as they quickly report improvements in their symptoms and that’s very encouraging. I am about to start on the Biodynamic Treatment of Children course which I’m really excited about as I love treating kids!".

2014: Claire says, "Having just returned to work after maternity leave I am keen to build on my personal experience of pregnancy and enhance my practice by undertaking an 'optimal foetal positioning' course and focus on creating an holistic treatment plan for pregnant patients."
