Shelley Machin


I have always been passionate about the holistic and empowering approach to patient care that Osteopathy offers.

After Graduating in 2011, I have worked as an associate Osteopath in practices in Selsdon, South Darenth, Shirley and in Tonbridge.

My experience in practice has afforded me the opportunity of treating and working with a wide variety of patients. From young babies to the elderly, sporting injuries through to those with ongoing problems, I have enjoyed looking at both short term relief, and long term maintenance solutions.

I have a particular interest in women’s health Osteopathy and completed a Post Graduate Diploma in this area in 2015. Women’s health Osteopathy is a growing and exciting field that allows a greater understanding of the various challenges faced by women’s bodies throughout their lives, and provides more specific techniques to allow Osteopaths to support women through these stages. As a mum of two myself, this has been extremely interesting on a personal level as well as professionally.

I am very much looking forward to meeting you at Ismini Phillips Studios.
