Samantha Fennell

We are delighted to have Sam working with the team at Rise Osteopathy. She is a highly skilled osteopath who has been working locally in South East London for over 12 years and has acquired a long list of loyal patients.

Sam graduated from the British School of Osteopathy (now the University College of Osteopathy, UCO) in 2008 with a Batchelor of Science in Osteopathy. She then went on to complete a Masters in Paediatric Osteopathy at the Osteopathic Centre for Children (OCC). 

Sam’s passion for the scope of paediatric osteopathy and how it can improve the lives of children of all ages, led her to establish the first post-graduate Paediatric Course at the UCO. She is a senior faculty member at the University and lectures across the UK and Europe in her specialist subject of the osteopathic care of children.  

Sam uses a mix of osteopathic techniques, including both structural and cranial, which she tailors to benefit each patient. She enjoys working with patients of all ages, and has a keen interest in treating children, particularly those with special physical and educational needs. 

When not working as an osteopath, Sam runs The Jamii Project, a social enterprise working with young people not in education, employment or training. She set up the Jamii Cafe, a community based non-for-profit cafe in Honor Oak, South East London, where marginalised young people can work and gain skills, and become part of their local community.
