Lola Phillips, Registered Osteopath & Head of Practice, Ealing

Lola’s philosophy behind her practice is to “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.” 

Lola has been providing Osteopathy services in Ealing since 2007. She is the Head of Practice and the most senior Osteopath on the team.  She leads a team of practitioners who come from various backgrounds and different disciplines. Her experience has taught her that providing patients with a valuable service is key. Patients describe Lola’s treatment approach as thorough, strong and sensitive at the same time. Lola treats a wide range of patients, but her main focus is to treat babies and Pre/Post-natal women.

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!” Lola comes from a commercial background. She has lived that life that many of you come to see her for!

Previously, Lola was a semi-professional vocalist and a competitor in Martial Arts, this got her on the road to Osteopathy. Both were completely different disciplines but both inspired her to start this career path. As a vocalist, she understands how poor tissue health can sub-optimise performance. Martial Arts taught her about recovery, at age 19 Lola suffered a severe sports trauma when she prepared for a competition. “I was very blessed to recover from a spinal injury.  The subsequent rehab was tough but it has taught me amazing lessons about the body, health and sheer determination”.
