Our Osteopaths

LISA GIBBS

Lisa took over the practice from Bryan Smith D.O. in 1993, who had been based in New Malden for over 40 years. Prior to 1993 Lisa had her own small practice in London, as well as working as an Associate in another large clinic in Baker Street.

Lisa graduated from her 4-year course in Osteopathy in 1989, and since then has continued her professional development with courses in Dry Needling and other more modern techniques. She has lectured to both fellow Osteopaths and GPs, and regularly meets with local doctors to discuss developments in both Osteopathy and Medicine in general.

JOE MEADOWS

Joe has a Master’s degree in Osteopathy from the University College of Osteopathy, the same institute that Lisa and her colleagues received their qualification from.

Joe enjoys the process of disentangling symptoms in order to establish the reasons that a patient feels pain or discomfort. Joe also had the privilege of working at the University’s Blanchard Clinic, gaining valuable experience in providing osteopathic care to patients diagnosed with HIV. This opportunity allowed him to tackle complex cases and offer rewarding support to individuals in need.

Joe adopts a patient-centred approach, emphasising open and ongoing communication, believing that this collaborative approach ensures the best treatment outcome.

As qualified ski-instructor Joe has a particular interest in sports injuries and how the body responds to dynamic stresses and trauma, and aims to work with the patient to form a treatment plan that enables them to return to their normal routine in a managed and timely process.
