Life is too short to let pain get in the way of doing what you love. Here at Lake View Osteopathy, we like to help you get out of pain and let you get on with enjoying life!

Osteopathy is a primary health care – you don’t need a referral from your GP to book an appointment with us.

Over 30,000 people every day visit an osteopath suffering from a variety of conditions including neck or back pain, joint or muscular pain, sports injuries, recurring headaches and more. Many patients are pregnant mothers, unsettled children, or those with work strain, or pain and stiffness related to advancing years.

    “What a pro! I struggled with a bout of Tendinitis for weeks on the NHS before I asked Tilly to take a look. An exam, some advice, and the problem was solved. Truly professional and caring. Highly recommended!”

    WOW!!!! Had my first treatment with Tilly today. After just one session I feel a million times better than I did when I first walked in. Tilly was very professional and made me feel comfortable and at ease throughout.

    “Great professional service, Lake View have been looking after my back for 2 years now, almost eradicated any aches and pains during long distance cycle rides. Any quibbles have been sorted whether it be a bad ankle or a stiff neck! I’d happily recommend to others.”

    “Tilly keeps my riding old injuries in check, allowing me to ride, play hockey, swim etc. The tape works a treat post-treatment, and it is great to be sent away with pilates-type exercises to be working on between treatments.”

    Fantastic. It has really helped me with my back and leg. I would recommend Tilly,she is very good and makes you feel at ease. My pain is so much better now.

    “I was a mess following years of falls from horses that I’d never had checked out. Having a desk bound day job that had caused me bad posture didn’t help either. After just two visits to Tilly I can’t begin to tell you how much better I feel. I loved the acupuncture too, it really made a difference. Tilly is just brilliant, I can’t recommend her highly enough.”

    “I went to see Tilly at Lake View Osteopathy Clinic with a terribly sore back that had been troubling me for some time. After the first session i felt almost human again and after a couple more i have now forgotten all about the pains. Tilly displayed an extensive knowledge of the methods she employed and also sympathy and compassion towards my problem. I couldn’t recommend her and the team at Lake View enough!”

    “Well, l have to say,excellent service in a really nice location! Tilly and Eliot have been really good in sorting out my calf injuries, and Eliot’s sports massages are really relaxing. I have nothing but good things to say about this clinic, and it comes well recommended!”

    “First and foremost – Tilly fixes the things that go wrong with bodies…mine seems to like to let me down but a trip to Tilly puts it firmly back in its place!! The clinic is spotless and a relaxing atmosphere for treatment. A very professional practice which I highly recommend.”

    “Tilly is an incredible osteopath, she is able to really help, I have previously only found people who are interested in making you visit them as often as possible, Tilly is not only lovely, but is also brilliant at “fixing you” , I find it is still good to go for a preventative treatment , but Tilly looks for the cause of your pain and ultimately makes you feel better. Thanks Tilly I would recommend you to anyone and everyone.”

    “Lakeview osteopaths not only have a lovely location but their service is superb. I had a long term injury which Tilly really addressed and what was great was her whole body approach and not just looking at the injury alone. Highly recommended!”

  • Kay Walker, Sandy

    Google Review ★★★★★

    The fabulous team of Eilot & Tilly @ Lake View have put me back together after a fall from a horse and also from a skiing accident. Both were successful! I had been recommended to try Lake View by a friend and now I wouldn’t consider using anyone else. Both Tilly and Eilot are approachable and friendly whilst delivering excellent treatment and care. I particularly like how both explain what they are doing – sometimes patient care is definitely their focus. I’d like to say that I hope not to need to see them in the future but as I am more accident prone than Mr Bump from the Mister Men books, that’s unlikely! But I do know that when I need them, Lake View will be there to make me better again!

  • Jenny Hall, Kettering

    “Lake View Osteopathy is in a beautiful relaxing location, a pleasure to visit. Tilly did a very reassuring health check (good to know that I’m not falling apart yet) and gave me some great exercises to help with my intermittent backache, knock knees and bunions. She also wiggled my finger and, as if by magic, the swelling on the knuckle has gone down and there’s no more pain. Brilliant.”

  • Niel Manley, Buckden

    “I have suffered from a bad lower back and arthritis on and off for a number of years. When these flared up together recently, coupled with golfer’s elbow I finally got fed up of feeling like and playing to a 100 (not good for a 47 year old, 10 handicapper) and decided it was time to get some professional help. One of my golf buddies recommended I went to see Tilly and after the first session I knew I had made a great choice. Tilly is not only throughly professional but makes each treatment interesting by explaining the relevance to the various component parts of the golf swing. I must admit I did have some reservations about whether Tilly would have the necessary strength but let me reassure you some of this hurts – a lot! A number of our conversations have been through my gritted teeth – never has the phrase ‘no pain no gain’ been more appropriate!!! My golf swing never will be a thing of beauty but at least now it is pain free, I can fully flex my wrists and make a complete turn. As a result I am hitting the ball further and straighter than I have for some considerable time and no longer walk off the course at the end of a round bent double with numerous aches and pains. Even though I’m no longer suffering I’m having regular treatments to prevent recurrence. I know this all sounds like I’m on commission, but I’m paying the standard price per treatment like everyone else and can honestly say it’s money well spent, especially when you take into account how much I’m saving on deep-heat and neurofen!”

    “Following a history of back problems I have seen a number of specialists to make day to day and recreational life easier. As a keen golfer time away from the golf course is painful, however, with two sessions of treatment at Lake View I have been able to return to golf within a week. Initially I made an appointment at Lake View for a neck problem of which was causing me discomfort and pain, I had rested from sport for two weeks with no recovery. After my first session of treatment I was able to carry out daily activities with no pain or discomfort, after my second session I was able to return to golf and running with no further pain or discomfort. Throughout the treatment I recieved a very professional and welcoming service in a modern and comfortable environment. The treatment is thorough and the information recieved was detailed. I would recommend anyone to visit Lake View and recieve beneficial treatment to make yourdaily life easier. Many Thanks Tilly.”

  • Mervyn & Hazel Howe, Bedford

    “Excellent diagnosis and treatment for a damaged knee. Genuine service, with a smile and reassurance.”

    “Tilly gave me an excellent treatment on my damaged shoulder. After only 3 appointments I was well enough to play golf and tennis again.”

    Mervyn & Hazel Howe, Bedford
  • John & Rose Wadham, St Neots

    “Rosemary & I would like to express our thanks to Tilly for the help she has given both of us in being able to improve & enjoy our golf since our treatments earlier in the year. I must say that I was sceptical as to the amount of benefit Osteopathy would bring, after all, I was only suffering from was a stiff and sometimes painful lower back and neck. I didn’t realise how much this restricted my golf swing. Following 3 sessions over about 4 weeks my back and neck are so much better that I get no noticeable pain during or after playing golf. I’m now able to concentrate on playing the game and not being concerned with any injury issues. Rosemary my wife has had 7 sessions with Tilly, she used to have a great deal of pain & restriction of movement as a result of a broken arm, just below the shoulder 7 years ago. She also suffered from a very stiff neck.These restrictions over time caused Rose’s swing to change so that she couldn’t complete a shoulder turn and lost a great deal of distance as a result. Following Tilly’s treatment Rose is now able to swing much more freely and is really enjoying her golf again. Tilly’s approach is very pleasant and professional taking as much time as needed to understand your problems.”

    John & Rose Wadham, St Neots
  • Libby Langley, Kettering

    “I was having a lot of pain in my back and shoulder which led to terrible headaches. I visited Tilly and she worked her magic to release my shoulder and the associated tension. The osteopathy process is sometimes painful, but Tilly is incredibly caring and explained each stage of the treatment fully. I recommend her to anyone in any kind of discomfort.”

  • Faye Woods, Colmworth

    “Tilly is wonderful. I’ve had problems with my back since childhood and it is better now than it has ever been before. She also treated me for sinus problems following a cold and achieved great results. I have recommended her to others and they all say the same. Remember that Osteopaths don’t just treat bad backs and go see her – she will make a difference.”

    Faye Woods, Colmworth
  • Eppie Anderson, Thrapston

    “I went to Tilly when I had severe shoulder pain, which was a trapped nerve, and in just one session she sorted it out – and loosened my joints more than I could have thought possible, to the point where I can once again throw overarm! very professional and clearly expert, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend anyone to Tilly.”as surprised by the speed and degree of improvement. I will recommend your services to anyone with aches and pains. To be honest, I think most people would probably benefit from an ‘osteopathy MOT’ before problems start. For me, it’s not a question of ‘can I afford to visit you’; it’s more ‘can I afford not to?’ I hope all this doesn’t sound too over-the-top – I’m just feeling so much better. Very many thanks.”

  • Jon Balaam, Sandy

    “Hi Tilly, I just wanted to let you know that the Marathon went well on Sunday – I knocked 4mins off my PB and didn’t experience anything other than a minor knee niggle in the first mile and tight calves in the last mile – and I seem to have recovered pretty well – am able to cope with stairs easily today! Thanks for your help, I’m sure I wouldn’t have made it to the start line without you!”

    Jon Balaam, Sandy
  • Olly Watts, Sandy

    “Hi Tilly, THANK YOU! My marathon went well, I just beat 4 hr 30 mins, which was the target for an off-road event with a few hills. Feeling rather stiff now, had a massage after finishing; will see how it goes and then probably book a session if still needed ….. I really don’t think I’d have even got to the start without your help – so again, a huge thanks. Cheers, Olly.”

  • Gill Fullen, Thurleigh

    “So Tilly, I’m not sure how you did it (apart from with needles, thumper, tape and very strong thumbs), but my injured achilles stood up to some serious speed work running yesterday without a murmur. Miracles do happen! Wish the other leg would stop getting so jealous of all the attention it’s missing though! Thanks again Tilly, I certainly wouldn’t be competing this weekend without you.”

    Barbara Stewart, Little Staughton
  • Susan Goodwin, Bedford

    “Tilly is very keen to get to the cause of the presenting problem, rather than simply treating the symptoms. She is very thorough in her treatments and has a real interest in the well beingof her patients, and brings excellent results. She has recently collaborated with a pilates coach, who conducts a regular weekly lesson, where we can improve our flexibility and strength and see continued progression.”

  • Hazel Howe, Bedford

    “Tilly took great care with my treatment. She analysed that the pains in my leg were caused by other parts of the body. I am now feeling very well.”

  • Karen Aspinall, Bedford

    “I went to Tilly after I had a bad fall with my horse.  I hadn’t ever been to an Osteopath before but Tilly made me feel comfortable and explained everything she was doing and what was going on in my body in response to the injury.  I could really feel the difference after each treatment.  The treatments helped me to repair quickly and correctly, without any long lasting issues.  Tilly’s knowledge of riding also meant she fully understood the strength and flexibility I needed to regain to be able to ride
    again.  If I ever have the need again I’ll be going straight back to Tilly!

    Karen Aspinall, Bedford
  • Rachel Barnes, Northants

    Tilly has enabled me to continue in my work and personal  life, at a time when if I hadn’t been visiting her for treatments I am sure I would have been unable to function on either level, she is kind , she listens, she is gentle if you are worried about pain and hugely caring about your progress. I really can’t recommend Tilly enough, she finds the route cause of you pain and then treats it, don’t hesitate to give her a try, I know you will be pleased you have. Thank you Tilly, so much for your help in the last year and particularly in the last three months.”

  • Julia Dunball, Kimbolton

    “Tilly puts a lot of thought into your treatment and if need be will ask you to seek medical advice. Very caring, thoughtful and careful with you if you are in pain. She does not ask you to book in again if she feels you don’t need to. Very Genuine.”

    “Very caring and knowledgable, Tilly always follows up her treatments even if it was the last one for her patients. I wouldn’t go anywhere else, am always extremely satisfied.”

  • Stacey Munsen, Grand Prix Dressage rider

    “I have been a patient of Tilly’s for a few years now and without her it would not be possible for me to ride at the top level.
    I’ve always suffered from a bad back but struggled to find anyone who could help me. Tilly assesses and treats me as needed every time I visit her. She is extremely professional and I trust her 100%. I always leave feeling reassured that I will be in tip top shape, something that is so important in my sport.
    Tilly’s riding experience gives her the extra knowledge of my injury and the importance of recovery. She always gives me extra help with stretches that I do at home to prevent further injury.
    I can not recommend her enough, anyone who visits her will be truly impressed!!”

  • Kit Hore, Bedford

    “So after no pole for a few months, I went back last night and managed to do a move I have REALLY struggled to do, basically because i could never find my balance…

    The move involves going upside down, gripping with your inside left elbow & right hand, then move your body away fromthe pole, AND lower your legs in a open v shape (this is where i could never balance, and my legs would waiver up & down & from side to side) Now my pelvis is straight I can do it!!! So thanks again!”

    “I had a series of treatments from Tilly when I picked up an injury prior to the London Marathon – I thought I wasn’t going to be able to race and that I’d be told not to, but Tilly was able to repair the damage and also gave me the reassurance that I wasn’t going to do lasting damage. I have complete confidence in Tilly because she gets to the root of the problem and doesn’t just paper over the cracks.”

  • Vanessa Ainsworth, Corby

    “Osteopathy at Lake View is a great way of getting many problems sorted out. Not only does it sort the structural stuff like your spine, but the additional extras such as acupuncture and ‘Tilly Tape’ help with soft tissue problems as well. Nothing is done in isolation, with a whole body attitude being taken into consideration. I’ve avoided surgery through my treatment and cannot praise the professionalism enough.”

    “Today I had my first osteopath treatment with Tilly. Tilly was extremely professional and put me completely at ease before, during and after my treatment. My back movement now feels loser and I can honestly say I already feel the benefits. Tilly provided sound advice and showed me exercises that I can do at home to continue my treatment. Fantastic, I would whole heartedly recommend Lake View Osteopathy Clinic.”

Can’t thank them enough for keeping us able to enjoy our hobby.”
