Dr Lyana Nepia Bsc (Hons), MSc (Chiro), Doctor of Chiropractic, Certified Craniopath


Experience you can trust

I'm proud to have been a Chiropractor for 17 years, since graduating from the Anglo European College of Chiropractic (AECC) in 2001.

After practising in London for many years, I now practise in Walton on Thames in Surrey within a purpose built, treatment room. 

In 2004, I founded the thriving Hampstead Chiropractic Clinic in London, where I worked for many years before leaving to concentrate in Surrey. Over the years, I’ve treated a wealth of different patients, from babies to the elderly, from professional athletes to chiropractic in pregancy and cranial work for babies.

My techniques

The main techniques I use are Diversified adjusting and Sacro-Occipital Technique, known as SOT, as well as some Acupuncture (dry needling).

I am became exam certified in SOT in 2014, passed my Advanced SOT exam in 2016, then passed up to Craniopath level, the highest qualification in 2018 (there are less than 30 certified craniopaths in the UK). 

I am particularly passionate about SOT, after seeing the amazing results it delivers across a wide a scope of areas; spinal, TMJ (jaw), cranial, visceral. I now assist teaching of SOT technique at seminars around Europe.

As well as my clinic work, I serve as a Board member and Treasurer for SOTO Europe (Sacro Occipital Technique Organisation), the organisation that is responsible for providing Chiropractic SOT education across Europe. I am a registrant of the General Chiropractic Council, a member of the United Chiropractic Association and the Sacro-Occipital Technique Organisation.

My philosophy

I am committed to providing outstanding chiropractic care, and educating patients how to maximise their health and wellness through posture and the latest research in nutrition and exercise. Since my teens, I've always had an interest in health, nutrition and fitness after competing in rowing at a high level. In retrospect, I was still naive as to the full potential of Chiropractic when I started my degree. But early into the degree programme, there ignited a passion for Chiropractic that has continued to grow ever since. It amazes me how much potential the body has to move, feel and function better with regular Chiropractic adjustments!!

Lyana was recommended to me through a friend 3 years ago as I was looking for alternative approaches to dealing with stress migraines and other "desk job" related ailments. She's done a brilliant job at treating my acute issues as they come up, at the same time as working with me to fix the underlying weaknesses to keep me going happily for longer. Lyana's upbeat and relaxed outlook is infectious which make appointments a treat rather than a treatment.
