Kelly’s an extremely empathetic and knowledgeable practitioner whom I would highly recommend. I came to her for help with back pain and she was able to treat this very successfully. She listens carefully, guides well and manages expectations. She is lovely person, someone you can place your trust in.

Always gentle and non-invasive, Kelly’s treatments have brought more flow and ease, openness and increased range of motion in my body. They have helped me greatly with chronic pain and stress, in releasing tension and soothing my nervous system, and feeling more balanced overall.Kelly creates a safe space and radiates warmth, compassion, and genuineness. She is highly perceptive and always brings helpful insights to the treatment. In this way her approach is truly whole-istic, working on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Kelly puts her heart and soul into her healing practice, which is underpinned by her knowledge and expertise. I have complete trust in Kelly as a practitioner and I can’t recommend her enough.

With hypermobility in my joints, I occasionally have very painful episodes that Kelly and her magic hands rescues me from. Kelly is both highly intuitive and experienced, giving her instinctive precision which leads her straight to where the problem is. Using cranial osteopathy she gently and reassuringly eases me out of spasm. I’ve needed osteopathic help all of my adult life and have seen many practitioners – Kelly’s skill is incomparable – added to which she’s such a lovely person and adds way more to our sessions than solely physical – she is wonderful to talk to as well. I trust her implicitly and recommend her highly. If there was a 6 star review I would give it.

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 and sessions of growth and reflection which is so much more than I expected and I simply cannot recommend her services enough!

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

I have known Kelly for years, not only has she treated me and my family in relation to osteopathy, she’s also treated my children for cranial and now me again with life coaching.I can’t recommend Kelly highly enough. I instantly felt a strong connection through her calm, spiritual and intellectual energy. I was extremely pleased when she started offering life coaching, as I personally could not have thought of or trust someone better to help me through this journey of self exploration.Kelly is a naturally kind, compassionate and incredibly grounded. She listens without bias and judgement and guides you in such a way, which allows you to open up to see some of the deepest emotions and experiences buried deep inside that you may not even knew where there!Thank you Kelly for your time and guidance, always making me feel calm,balanced and restored after speaking with you.

the 2022 best Cranial Osteopath Provider

Kelly Mckay registered osteopath and founder of BodyMind Gateway (in her osteopathic consultation room).
Kelly Mckay - Registered Osteopath & Founder.


As the founder and sole osteopath at BodyMind Gateway, this prestigious award comes as a result of services offered by Kelly Mckay. As is expected, Kelly is a highly experienced osteopathic practitioner with more than 20 years of clinical experience. While she has been accredited for her cranial osteopathic services, she is also well experienced with the structural osteopathic approach. Unquestionably, her hands on therapy forms the core foundation of the services offered at BodyMind Gateway.

Let’s take a brief look at her journey. It  began in 1994 qualifying as a massage therapist. This provided her the interest to go on to complete an osteopathic degree where she qualified with honours in 2001. Following her undergraduate training, she completed a further two years post graduate training  at the osteopathic centre for children which was predominantly centred around a cranial osteopathic approach.  This clearly proved to be integral to advancing her cranial osteopathic clinical experience and skill.

Beyond her obvious osteopathic expertise, Kelly sought to broaden her skills by going on to earn the titles of life coach, neurolinguistic programming practitioner (NLP), cognitive behavioural therapy practitioner (CBT) and counselling practitioner. Consequently, these skill sets have been pivotal to her holistic therapeutic framework. As a result, Kelly is able to offer a refreshing holistic approach to treating a wide range of symptoms.
