Our Practitioners

Mrs Jamie Rose – Osteopath

Having grown up in Devon, I gained my first degree in Biology in 1994 in York but returned to the South West to live and work.  After 10 years working with housing charities, I followed my interests in the human body and health to leave a senior management role to study Osteopathy full time.

Prior to graduating with an honours degree in Osteopathy, I gained ITEC diplomas in holistic massage and aromatherapy. I am also a qualified reflexologist.

As an Osteopath I am trained in Cranial Osteopathy, joint manipulation, Full Body Adjustment, visceral techniques and dry needling.  My approach is gentle but effective following the principles and theories of classical osteopathy.

I am registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) and am also a member of the Institute of Osteopathy (IO) and am currently studying Zero Balancing.


Lauren Goodlad – Osteopath

Originally from Hertfordshire, I followed my interests in health to qualify with a Masters degree in Osteopathy from Oxford Brookes University in 2012.  I then moved to Devon to practice Osteopathy in Exmouth and Tiverton.  I use a wide range of techniques, such as mobilisations and soft tissue techniques, to myofascial release and cranial osteopathy. I have a particular interest in the treatment of headaches and also enjoy working with babies, children and helping expectant mothers throughout their pregnancy. In my free time I like to be active and enjoy cricket and netball.

Lauren is currently away on maternity leave and is expected back in the new year.


Sarah Reynolds-Crompton – Osteopath

I have been an Osteopath for over ten years after graduating from the European School of Osteopathy. Prior to this, I gained my first degree in Biology and worked for Oxford University Laboratories.

I treat a wide variety of conditions using both structural (articulations, manipulations, massage) and cranial techniques. My youngest patient has been two days old and my eldest ninety eight years of age. As an animal lover, I have also trained in Animal Osteopathy and therefore am qualified to treat horses and dogs.

My membership includes the Institute of Osteopathy and I am an Associate Practitioner of Arthritis Action. Professional registration is with the General Osteopathic Council. I can accept all health insurance patients including BUPA and AXA PPP.

Outside of work, I am often found with my animals. I also play soprano and alto saxophones and play with my local group. As a recent import to Devon, a lot of my time is spent working on my farmhouse and exploring the new sights of the wonderful Devon countryside.


Howard McIntosh – Osteopath

I qualified from the British School of Osteopathy ( BSO ) in 1993. During this time, also trained for my I.T.E.C. holistic massage qualification which I obtained in 1991. A couple of years after leaving the BSO I taught anatomy and sports massage at the Raworth Centre in Dorking, Surrey and went on to study Traditional Chinese Medicine in London. Though I qualified with my licentiate in acupuncture a few years later, my focus nowadays is osteopathic.

My treatments incorporate soft / hard-tissue massage, manipulation and functional techniques. Most of the patients I see tend to be active adults with work-related or sports-related problems.

Over the years I have worked all around the UK in many multi-disciplinary clinics and in large G.P surgeries in the Channel Islands.

In 2017 I relocated from Surrey to East Devon and recently joined the team at The Exmouth Osteopathy and Massage Centre.


Andy Pryke – Bowen Technique Practitioner

The Bowen technique is a hands on remedial therapy, consisting of rolling moves over soft tissue.  No force or manipulation is used, resulting in a treatment which is relaxing and pleasant to receive. It has proved extremely effective in treating muscular disorders such as back pain, frozen shoulder, and ‘sciatica’.

As a holistic therapy it is also helpful as a general body-balancing therapy and in the treatment of a variety of medical conditions e.g. migraines, digestive and respiratory problems. I have spent the last 12 years working as a Bowen technique practitioner but also am a qualified homeopath.


Caroline – Massage Specialist

I have been massaging now for over 20 years and I love it! I originally studied ITEC Anatomy, Physiology and Massage, but over the years I have continued to train in different aspects of bodywork:  Most recently I completed an Oncology Massage course, so as to be able to offer support to those living with cancer, both past and present.

Whether the massage is for pain reduction, rehabilitation, increased flexibility, or simply relaxation, the treatment will be tailored to your specific requirements. I use an integrated approach which may incorporate essential oils as well as elements from deep tissue and therapeutic massage. I am a registered member of the CThA (Complimentary Therapists Association).

I have worked in a wide variety of settings from the Caribbean to a rehabilitation centre in the UK.  I have a regular clinic in London and have been here at Exmouth Osteopathy for over a decade.  I really enjoy the massage sessions, and hope you will too.

I live with my family on the northern edge of Dartmoor.  I have an active lifestyle, with a wide range of interests which include walking, art, languages, piano, ancient history and diving.


Madeleine Habermehl – Massage Therapist

I initially trained in Fine Art and Theatre Design and spent several years working in these fields before transferring my skills into teaching Art and Design. Having gained my Cert Ed I worked in post 16 and Adult Education for many years and more recently in a busy college supporting learners with specific learning difficulties.

I was first introduced to Therapeutic massage when I joined a short course at my local Adult Education centre and enjoyed it so much I signed up to repeat the course for a second term. I had been introduced to the skeletal and musculature systems of the body as a student at Art school, and through learning massage I have gained an understanding of how these systems are connected and work together.

2018 has been my turning point; After 18 years of visiting family here I have finally relocated to Exmouth from London. I have successfully completed training at The School of Natural Therapies to achieve my iTEC Level 3 Diploma in Therapeutic Massage, Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology, and recently achieved a Diploma in Pregnancy Massage.
I am also an Associate of the Federation of Holistic Therapists.

I am looking forward to working with you at The Exmouth Osteopathy and Massage Centre, where I will support you to achieve homeostasis through soft and deep tissue massage, helping you to relax, unwind and invigorate.

When I am not working you will find me walking in the beautiful countryside, drawing the wonderful landscapes, swimming, practising Yoga, running or Orienteering.
