Meet the Team


Rachel Brown - Business Owner / Manager

Rachel moved from Watford to Ilkeston in 1999 to set up the Ilkeston Osteopathy Centre after buying the business from the previous Osteopath. She lives in South Derbyshire with her husband, son and daughter.  In her spare time she enjoys paddle boarding, cycling and walking her Boston Terrier - in fact, anything outdoors! 

Rachel worked as an Osteopath at Ilkeston Osteopathy Centre for 20 years but unfortunately in 2019, she had to undergo bilateral hand surgery which was unsuccessful, so has since had to retire from Osteopathy. 

She still owns and manages the business and her passion for Osteopathy and the patients that enter the practice remains the same. 

If you phone the practice, she will be the voice at the end of the line offering her expert knowledge and making sure you are able to get in as quickly as possible to see one of the team.

Laura Bayley - Osteopath

MSc Ost Med. 



Laura graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University with a Master’s degree in osteopathy, with additional qualifications in cranial osteopathy and kinesio-taping. 

Laura is a very friendly osteopath who has developed a wealth of experience in treating a wide range of musculoskeletal dysfunctions.  

It is important to Laura to identify and treat the cause of the musculoskeletal dysfunction or condition, which she then fully explains to the patient along with the treatment needed. 

She works together with the patient to prevent the injury from re-occurring, as well as giving patients the tools in the form of rehabilitation exercises and stretches to manage their injury at home.

In her spare time Laura enjoys playing football and going to the gym.
