Who is working in Antibes?

Romain

Romain

Osteopath

Romain Almirall BSc Ost

Romain joined our team in 2010 and now works in our Antibes Office
He is the hardest working member of our team because he owns an osteopathic clinic in Marseille and at weekends and Monday mornings he works there too.

He is uber fit and a keen sportsman. Because of his history of playing competitive tennis he is really interested in sports injuries as he has seen and experienced most of them.

Romains biggest and darkest secret is that he was on the National French team for Ballroom Dancing. He maintains that he only did this through parental pressure and that the positive side was that it enabled him to be highly sought after with the opposite sex. !!!

Romain has won the accolade of being the osteo that talks the most!, and he has very stiff competition from the girls. Patients refer to him as ‘the chatty one’.

Rachael

Rachael

Osteopath / Founder

Rachael Dickens BA Hons,  BSc Ost Hons

Rachael moved to France in 2001 and set up the clinics.

Being an osteopath is her second career, she used to be a publisher within the Daily Mail Group. But after an accident at the age of 28 where she suffered from a broken back which left her (temporarily) paralysed she was taken to see an osteopath and had the ‘carried in, walked out’ moment that led her to change careers, go back to her third University and study another 5 years to be able to ‘Do to someone, what someone did to me’
During her time in France Rachael co founded the pre cursor to the ‘Osteos du Coeur’ a charity which enables those from modest incomes to access free osteopathic health care. During her stint as President of this charity, she was voted as the PACA regions’ Woman of the Year’ (Prix de Femmes) and flown to Paris to be honoured as the top ten women who had made a difference to their community. The first British woman to be so honoured.

Rachael has raised over 100k for a UK charity for wounded veterans and sits on the committee as the medical lead.  Supporting Wounded Veterans.

She loves working as an osteo and her energy is impressive. Although she has less clinic time these days she is usually to be found plotting and planning the future of the clinics, helping other businesses as a mentor, adopting dogs, or kayaking.

Her dark secret is that she was swapped at birth but then re swapped. An incident that her family still tease her about to this day. She was mixed up with a newborn Indian baby, and neither family noticed the difference!
