About
Banstead Village Clinic and our Team

The Osteopathy Team

chris PinchesChris Pinches graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in 1985 and set up practice in Banstead in the same year. In 1989 he started a second practice from his home in Farnham and now divides his time between them. Chris enjoys treating the full range and variety of problems that typically present in a ‘general Osteopathic Practice’; from the young to the old, sporty to sedentary, back problems to ankle injuries. A particular area of interest is treating pregnant mothers. The unique stresses and strains that occur with a developing pregnancy, and the changing posture that goes with it, respond well to Osteopathy. When he is not working he might be found on the golf course striving to drag his game up the ladder from mediocrity!

Jennifer Beck graduated with a Masters in Osteopathy from Leeds Beckett University. From a young age Jen has had a passion for healthcare. She enjoys treating the whole family, with interests from the elderly to all stages of pregnancy. Jen has a very structural approach to treatment. A range of gentle techniques to help the body heal itself. She is trained in both dry needling and sports massage. Jen believes in supporting each patient to understand the mechanism of injury and how to improve not just the injury but the patient’s quality of life and enhancing this in as many ways as possible.

 

jane watt Jane Watt graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in 1988 and, after working in a sports injury clinic for 10 years, started working in Banstead Village Clinic after the birth of her 4th son. Then in 2005 she returned to the BSO as a clinic tutor, supervising the undergraduate students in the clinic.

She thoroughly enjoys both jobs – the balance between helping to return patients to pain-free lives and guiding students from classroom to treatment room as competent osteopaths.
