Kelly Mckay registered osteopath and founder of BodyMind Gateway (in her osteopathic consultation room).

Are you looking for further insight into treatment experiences with Kelly Mckay? Her client testimonials will provide just that! Here’s what just a few of Kelly’s clients had to say:

“Kelly is a brilliant, incisive and compassionate healer. As well as being a fantastic osteopath she has an amazing ability to see the connection between thoughts, emotions and physical well-being. Her knowledge is great and her diagnosis is always on the money. I see her for back problems and the like, but always leave with my mind and spirit healed as well as my body. I cannot praise or recommend her highly enough.”

Mike. R (Writer/Comedian)~

“I must say I was not sure what will be the end result – but I am now blown away! You left me with lots of things to think about, you have simplified my thoughts into action plans, just in one session. I am looking forward to our second session.”

Nonceba. K (Business Owner)~

“Kelly is such an incredible human being. She always brings me back to balance and grounds me within my body. I first went to see Kelly after my back (that has been a weak spot for years) was in a lot of pain again. She helped me to understand how everything is connected and how emotions are stored in the body. Since then my back has felt much stronger! I have always felt so safe and supported during a treatment. When I leave, the world seems so much lighter and I’m full of trust.”

Ciara. G (Student Therapist)~

“Kelly is a highly skilled practitioner and she helped me hugely both physically and emotionally during a very difficult time. Kelly is intelligent and perceptive and her kind and affable demeanour immediately put me at ease. I still use the meditation techniques she taught me and absolutely love them!”

Lola. R (Carer)~

“My first lifecoaching experience was very uplifting, instead of looking down on myself for not completing certain things or not being exactly where I want to be in life, I was given realistic ways to make it a reality.”

Soriyah. M (Singer/Songwriter)~

“Kelly loves her profession. She is enthusiastic, very good at connecting with people and treats you with a lot of warmth and respect. I have been treated by osteopaths before, but Kelly is really special. She combines structural and cranial osteopathy and also makes you aware of the self limiting beliefs that are getting in your way. Every time you walk out the practice you feel energetic and your body moves so much better than when you came in. Because Kelly is also a life coach, she is able to put you on the right track both physically and mentally.”

Marieke V (Teacher)~

“I have been seeing Kelly as an osteopathy client for several years and I can attest to her being an excellent healer. Kelly not only has the technical expertise on a physical level, but uses an holistic approach to combine the physical with the mental and spiritual. She is a natural life coach, an innate ability which is evident from the first time you meet her.

Every session with Kelly creates space and understanding taking healing to a higher level. Kelly is a true professional with a very grounded presence and I can truly say I walk away feeling elevated after every session. All my appointments have been an experience – sessions of growth and reflection which is so much more than I expected. I simply cannot recommend her services enough.”

Raj. D (I.T)~

“I came to Kelly in the first place with neck pain and a very stiff upper back, thinking that alignment or posture and constant guitar playing could be the reason. Kelly immediately pointed out how I was holding tension in my body also due to my mind pattern (of constantly being on the go, being stuck in my head and really high stress levels). As we started to address this together, it slowly started to shift. Kelly is phenomenal at spotting the ‘trouble areas’. She is very intuitive and I always walk out feeling calm and motivated to keep going on my journey to become more balanced. I highly recommend Kelly for mind, body and soul.“

Malin. A (Musician)~

“I attend cranial appointments with Kelly McKay. She is a wonderful practitioner and it has changed my life. From recovering from an operation to overall health and well-being. It is a highlight of any week going to see her because I always feel so energised and more grounded afterwards. Kelly is a very kind,understanding, gentle and knowledgeable lady who is a true asset to Neal’s Yard.”

Rita. h (Architect Assistant)~

“I’ve been seeing Kelly for over a year now and I always look forward to the experience. Between the lockdowns and WFH, my body is always stiff especially my lower back. First, she is extremely knowledgeable about the body and suggests at home exercises to help. The exercises sustain me in between visits. Second, her touch is the right amount of firm and delicate. I walk home feeling so refreshed, loose, and energetic. If it wasn’t too gluttonous I would make weekly appointments. I’d highly suggest giving her a go as your body will certainly thank you.”

Kadian. G (Designer)~

‘I had my first treatment with Kelly more than 10 years ago when I was a school teacher and she has supported my physical and emotional health ever since. Now, as a therapist myself, I appreciate how much her wisdom and compassion also work to facilitate the healing of mind and body. Kelly is an awesome practitioner.”

Helena. B (Reflexologist)~ 

“I have come to Kelly for many years. She has always made me feel better in body and mind. Her knowledge inspires me with total confidence. I always come away from seeing Kelly feeling better in my body and mind. She heals, and she makes the world a better place.”

Robert. B (Actor)~

“Best osteopath I’ve ever had, she’s amazing, I have been treated by her in various locations for nearly twenty years, such a calming energy.  .. always there to resolve the issues I’m having physically and emotionally. I like to see an osteopath that practices both structural and cranial osteopathy as I always need both in a treatment to deal with the stresses, strains and pains of life …I always feel so much more balanced after a treatment.”

Gill. C (Artist)~

“I have visited many osteopaths over the years, my work in the film industry costume departments mean I repeatedly strain my neck and back. Kelly Mckay is by far the best osteopath that I have seen. Her approach is to look after one’s whole physical and mental well-being. I have never left a session with her without feeling revitalised.”

Steve. P (Wardrobe Manager)~

“I have been seeing Kelly for cranial osteopathy at Neals Yard Remedies for many years now and have also taken both of my sons to be treated at different times. My youngest son plays a lot of football and her treatments have really helped with some difficult injuries. Kelly is a wonderful therapist and I would highly recommend her.”

Sally. S (Therapist)~

“I took my baby girl to see Kelly McKay for 2 cranial treatments around the ages of 4 and 6 months. There were no massive issues with my daughter, however, she had a Ventouse delivery and so I knew I wanted her to have a couple of sessions with Kelly to help with any residual trauma she might have been carrying around her head. Kelly was so good with her from the moment she laid her hands on her. My baby is very wriggly and doesn’t like to stay still for long, however, Kelly didn’t make this into an issue at all and was able to calmly and confidently work on her whilst I held her in my arms for most of the treatment.

Kelly has such a calm and gentle way with babies and I really appreciated this. As a new mum, you of course want people who come into contact with your child to treat them and hold them the same way that you do – and that’s exactly what I got. My daughter warmed to her immediately and gave her lots of smiles!

Although my daughter has never been a ‘challenging’ baby, I saw a subtle but noticeable difference in her after each treatment. After the first treatment, she carried far less tension in her neck and shoulders and breastfed in a more relaxed way (we were having some troubles with feeding in certain positions before). After the second treatment (at a time when my partner and I were both quite stressed which I feel was rubbing off on her), she was much calmer and settled back to her usual cheerful self within a day or two.

All in all, I would highly recommend Kelly’s services – both for adults (I have had many wonderful sessions with her) but especially for babies. The way in which she was able to so gently and profoundly help settle my daughter into her natural way of being was truly incredible and I’m very grateful for her work.”
