Ben Gilbert B.Ost D.Med Ac

Ben is the founder of the Lexden Health Practice which he established in 2009 after graduating from the British School of Osteopathy with a first class honours degree.  He then went on to study other forms of natural healing.

Ben has a passion for Osteopathy and believes in a holistic approach to medicine whereby he treats the underlying root cause of the problem as well as giving effective pain relief. Ben believes in the philosophy that the body has an inherent capacity for healing and views Osteopathy as a method for encouraging that natural healing process.

Ben is considered an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of musculoskeletal conditions and sports injuries. He uses a range of hands-on techniques to provide safe and effective relief from pain, swelling, muscle tension, joint restrictions and trapped nerves. In addition, Ben is a rehabilitation specialist and a certified Medical Acupuncturist, integrating these into his treatments for excellent results.

Prior to studying Osteopathy he was a Sports Injury Practitioner with a keen interest in sports medicine, injuries and rehabilitation. Ben also worked as a snowboard instructor and during a season in Canada gained experience treating snow sport related injuries.

Ben strongly believes that continued professional development is a key factor in maintaining the high standards he aspires to.
