Building on Reputation
Established in 1993 and based at Odiham’s local landmark Old Bakery, The Odiham Clinic has become well recognised locally for its wide range of disciplines and treatments – offering a rounded personal service to the local community and beyond.
Whatever your health needs, we can help
Where necessary, therapists can now consult with the other disciplines, to help resolve your problem as quickly as possible. If further investigations, such as an x-ray or blood tests are necessary or you require further medical treatment, we may contact your doctor, with your permission.
Passionate about our patients’ wellbeing, we stock ‘Sissel’ products to aid healthy sitting and quality sleep and Pilates tools to assist your home self-care. Relevant supplements, remedies, creams and hot/cold therapy products are available for purchase. Other specialist items, such as back supports, can usually be supplied within 2-3 days.
Many of our patients find us through kind referral. For those who wish to introduce friends or family to these benefits, we now also offer Gift vouchers.
Our Osteopaths are registered with the General Osteopathic Council and recognised by all of the main health insurers.

Prior to becoming an Osteopath, Christina qualified and worked as a Nurse at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London. She also gained nursing experience in orthopaedic surgery and paediatric orthopaedics at Great Ormond Street. Having nursed patients following spinal surgery and other neurosurgical operations, Christina has found this experience invaluable in her practise as an Osteopath.
Although Christina enjoys treating a variety of complaints, she has a special interest in treating expectant mums, children and the more challenging patients with chronic pain. She has taken postgraduate courses in Cranial Osteopathy and Dry Needling (Myofascial Acupuncture). In her spare time, Christina is a keen fell walker, swimmer, enjoys yoga and sailing when the opportunity arises.
Katie Clayton MOst, BSc(Econ), graduated from the BSO, London, and has taken postgraduate courses in spinal mechanics, Balanced Ligamentous Tension, Cranial Osteopathy and clinical mat-based Pilates. She has a focus on biomechanics, posture, lifestyle and general health when assessing and treating patients. She believes that improving movement and circulation are key, as well as investigating the root of the symptoms and helping the patient find tools to help themselves. Katie has been a keen dancer from a young age and also enjoys Pilates, yoga and hill walking.
Anthony Brindle MOst, studied at the London School of Osteopathy and is also qualified in Sports Massage and Dry Needling. Anthony is a keen squash player and coach, having represented Gibraltar at various international events, most notably the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Our team of Osteopaths (see Osteopathy) is now offering massage to existing and new patients. Our particular interest is in treating patients experiencing pain, flexibility issues, muscular tension and sporting or other injuries.
Sarah Sadler BSc, MChs qualified in 2007 from the University of Southampton, with a degree in Podiatry and joined The Odiham Clinic team over 10 years ago. Sarah regularly attends courses and conferences in order to keep up to date with the latest treatments. She is a member of The Society of Chiropodist and Podiatrists and the HCPC.
Sarah’s love of feet started in her late twenties, when she saw the impact that painful feet had on the mobility and quality of life of some of her elderly relatives. Sarah is an enthusiastic practitioner who enjoys all aspects of footcare, whatever the age of the feet! She takes a holistic approach to her patients, from the treatment she provides to how people care for their feet at home, encompassing the choice of footwear, socks, foot creams and even what nails are painted with!
Sarah aims for her patients to leave the Clinic feeling that they are walking on air!
Elena Panfilova BSc RHom began her interest in holistic medicine after moving to the UK, in 2003, from Russia, where she worked as a medical doctor in a hospital in Saint Petersburg. Elena qualified as a Homeopath from the Middlesex University in London.
Having a great respect for conventional medicine, Elena was drawn to homeopathy because of its approach to disease through understanding the whole person, including their body, mind and emotional state. Elena’s particular interest is in treating women and children – supporting women during periods of hormonal change (puberty, birth and menopause) as well as times of emotional stress, grief or simply not feeling right to children with learning difficulties or behavioural problems.
