The Riverside Clinic was opened in August 2001 by Osteopath Victor Henighan, the director of the clinic. Soon after, the range of treatments expanded to include Complementary Therapies and Acupuncture. The following year, the original Clinic had to be expanded to provide another treatment room for Homeopathy.
To cope with continual increase in demand for treatment, we moved to a larger clinic in a beautiful riverside location. There are now five therapists; two Osteopaths one Acupuncturist, and two Complementary Therapists.
There is also a team of receptionists who provide reception cover and clinic administration six days a week.
Victor earned his BSc Hons Ost at The British School of Osteopathy in London.
Victor practised in Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire before settling in Lincolnshire, and now runs a practice in Gainsborough during the week. On Saturdays, Victor treats able and para-athletes at Dressage Centres, including Sophie Wells, Paralympic, World and European Gold Medallist.
Victor taught Osteopathy at Leeds Metropolitan University between 2010 and 2013.
Laura is a fully qualified Osteopath practising in Nottingham and Gainsborough.
Laura graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University with a Master’s degree in Osteopathy, with additional qualifications in kinesis-taping and osteopathic dry needling. Laura also has had training in pregnancy osteopathy.
