Lola Phillips,  Osteopath in Ealing since 2007.

Lola has been providing osteopathy services in Ealing and Maidenhead since 2007. She is the Head of Practice and the most senior osteopath on the team.  She leads a team of practitioners from a number of disciplines – Osteopathy, Acupuncture, and Nutrition.  She comes from a commercial background, having worked in a number of blue chip companies. “I know what it is to suffer severe neck pain, aggravated by long hours at a desk. When you wake up in pain, barely able to move, you feel you have to get to work and perform at your usual best.  No excuses!”  The commercial world taught Lola about providing patients with a valuable service.  “I want every patient to feel as though they have received a health service that has sustainable benefits.” 

Lola’s founding philosophy behind the design of her practice is “Provide the type of health service that you would expect to receive from any other health professional – Informative, compassionate and solution orientated. Listen, understand and find out what is the top priority for your patient.” 

Patients describe Lola’s treatment approach as thorough, strong and sensitive at the same time.  Lola uses a blended approach of acupuncture with osteopathy for stubborn muscles and in sports therapy – especially Runners’ Calf Pain.  Lola also threats babies with cranial osteopathy where a gently seeking and guiding hand is required.

Lola was a semi-professional vocalist and understands how poor tissue health can sub-optimise performance. Aged 19 Lola suffered severe sports trauma when she prepared for competition in Martial Arts.  “I was very blessed to recover from spinal injury.  The subsequent rehab was tough but it has taught me amazing lessons about the body, health and sheer determination”. Lola previously lectured on osteopathy degree courses on the subjects of Clinical Technique, Professionalism & Business Development.
