Building on Reputation
Established in 1993 and based at Odiham’s local landmark Old Bakery, The Odiham Clinic has become well recognised locally for its wide range of disciplines and treatments – offering a rounded personal service to the local community and beyond.
That’s why we are pleased to extend services to the Fleet area, at the Richmond Surgery (off Linkway, Fleet), where we offer Osteopathy, Counselling and Hypnotherapy.
Whatever your health needs, we can help
Where necessary, therapists can now consult with the other disciplines, to help resolve your problem as quickly as possible. If further investigations, such as an x-ray or blood tests are necessary or you require further medical treatment, we may contact your doctor, with your permission.
To assist your treatment, relevant supplements, remedies, creams, hot/cold therapy are available for purchase. Other specialist items, such as back supports, can usually be supplied within 2-3 days.
Many of our patients find us through kind referral. For those who wish to introduce friends or family to these benefits, we now also offer Gift vouchers.
Our Osteopaths are registered with the General Osteopathic Council and recognised by all the main health insurers, including BUPA and PPP.
A graduate of the British School of Osteopathy in London, Christina Hood BSc(Ost) has been practising in Odiham since 1993, when she established The Odiham Clinic.
Prior to becoming an Osteopath, Christina qualified and worked as a Nurse at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London. She also gained nursing experience in orthopaedic surgery and paediatric orthopaedics at Great Ormond Street. Having nursed patients following spinal surgery and other neurosurgical operations, Christina has found this experience invaluable in her practise as an Osteopath.
Although Christina enjoys treating a variety of complaints, she has a special interest in treating expectant mums, children and all patients with chronic pain.
Christina works closely with her colleagues Katie Clayton MOst BSc (Econ), who graduated from the BSO, London, and with Linda Crawford MOst BSc (Hons), who graduated from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine. They have a wealth of experience in treating neuromusculoskeletal conditions at any age, suffering either acute or chronic pain.
Christina and Katie have undertaken postgraduate courses in Cranial Osteopathy and both Christina and Linda also offer Myofascial Acupuncture (Dry Needling) as an effective treatment. Linda is also particularly interested in the nervous system and treatment of shoulder and hip conditions. Katie enjoys resolving postural problems and pregnancy related issues.
Anthony Brindle MOst, studied at the London School of Osteopathy and is also qualified in Sports Massage and Dry Needling. Anthony is a keen squash player and coach, having represented Gibraltar at various international events, most notably the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. He believes that exercise, alongside manual therapy is vital for the successful resolution of a patient’s pain.
Our team of Osteopaths is now offering massage to existing and new patients. Our particular interest is in treating patients experiencing pain, flexibility issues, muscular tension and sporting or other injuries.

Elena Panfilova BSc RHom began her interest in holistic medicine after moving to the UK, in 2003, from Russia, where she worked as a medical doctor in a hospital in Saint Petersburg. Elena qualified as a Homeopath from the Middlesex University in London.
Having a great respect for conventional medicine, Elena was drawn to homeopathy because of its approach to disease through understanding the whole person, including their body, mind and emotional state. Elena’s particular interest is in treating women and children – supporting women during periods of hormonal change (puberty, birth and menopause) as well as times of emotional stress, grief or simply not feeling right to children with learning difficulties or behavioural problems.

Lizzie Carver took her first level of training in Reiki in 1992, using it regularly on herself and her young family for relaxation and support. Following further training in 2010, she began offering Reiki professionally, principally in Alton and Whitehill.
Lizzie is now an Independent Usui Reiki Master & Teacher, a member of the UK Reiki Federation and registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council for Reiki. Both organisations have clear Codes of Conduct, Ethics and Performance and registration involves a thorough verification of training.
Reiki is taught by Reiki Master/Teachers, who have trained in the tradition passed on, in person, from Master to student. Students go through a process of initiation/attunement to the Reiki energy. They are then able to treat themselves and others. As a Reiki Master/Teacher, Lizzie may sometimes suggest that a client with a long-standing condition learn to use Reiki on themselves – to literally take their well-being into their own hands. This has proved helpful in a variety of situations.
