After qualifying David worked as an associate in a number of established practices and taught at undergraduate level at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine before taking over the Copthall Osteopathic Practice.

David is now in great demand and treats horses owned by the Royal Family as well as travelling internationally to consult.
His human client base consists of a large cross section of the public including A- list celebrities and he has been fortunate to treat the cast and crew of Sweeney Todd, The Golden Compass and James Bond – Quantum of Solace.
Furthering his knowledge through continuing professional development is also a large part of David’s life and he regularly attends lectures, demonstrations and conferences to keep up to date on the latest osteopathic and related topics.
In his spare time David runs, swims and has recently attained his Black Belt in Tai Jutsu, as well as spending time with his family.

Rebecca has ridden and owned horses for over forty years and became interested in equine anatomy and biomechanics when her horse suffered a series of unexplained lameness issues. After seeing the difference in her horse following regular massage treatments, Rebecca decided to put her interest in anatomy and biomechanics to good use and become a massage therapist. Rebecca trained and qualified with The College of Animal Physiotherapy (graduating with a Distinction) and is passionate about helping to improve both the physical and mental wellbeing of our equine friends.
Rebecca is fully insured and is a member of the International Association of Animal Therapists. Please contact Rebecca for more information or to book an appointment.
