Body Mechanix: Osteopathic, Health & Wellness Clinic

Written by: Claire McKenna | on: 22/08/2021

Body Mechanix is an award winning, multi-disciplinary Osteopathy, Cranial, Health and Wellness Clinic.

Osteopathy is a form of hands on musculo-skeletal treatment, designed to increase the mobility of joints, relieve muscle tension, enhance blood supply to tissues and assist in helping the body to heal more effectively.

Over 30,000 people visit an osteopath every day with varied and wide ranging symptoms from the very common, to the very complex.

Such ailments might include neck and back pain, joint and muscular pain, sports injuries, recurring headaches and tennis/golfers elbow to name a few. When visiting the clinic, you can expect first class treatment and advice upon consultation with our practitioners.

Who Started Body Mechanix?

Claire Mckenna set up the clinic at her parents house in the parish of Wheathampstead after a 4 year degree in osteopathic medicine, qualifying as an osteopath in 2008.

Continued growth and increasing patient numbers meant Claire was in the fortunate position to expand and take on the beautiful 69B High Street, Harpenden.

It is here in this wonderfully charming 16th century clinic you can find Claire and her large team of multi-disciplinary practitioners and therapists, from massage therapists and podiatrists, to Pilates instructors, nutritionists and counsellors.

We asked who their favourite types of customers are....

“You’ve pulled a muscle with your weekend warrior prowess playing football… We’ll get you back on the pitch in no time, (but we can’t promise to make you a better player).

You’re suffering with a sore, stiff neck/low back, especially in the mornings… We’ll have you more limber than an Olympic gymnast after a few treatments with our osteopath and sports therapists.

Pain in the bum and down the back of the leg? Sounds like Sciatica? You’ve come to the right place, let us help you with that!”
