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 18 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 SOT certified in 2014, Advanced SOT certified in 2016, then became a Certified Craniopath 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!!

Many people perceive Chiropractic to be a treatment for musculoskeletal problems such as back pain or headaches. Chiropractors do treat these and do so very well, but Chiropractic is much more than that. I believe Chiropractic to be an important part of the 'health jigsaw' along with optimum nutrition, exercise and lifestyle advice. As a species we have strayed very far from what our bodies were evolved to  do. We move less, eat more and often differently than how we are designed to. And then when you bring in smartphones/laptops in the last few years, it is no wonder that there are many people that are on quest for better health!

I went to see Lyana for TMJ (jaw) problems. I found her treatments to be gentle and effective.  On one occasion, I woke up on the morning of an appointment with bad vertigo, everything spinning, within one session I was fine.  The severe jaw pain I was getting on a daily basis is now a very occasional thing, less severe and much easier to manage when it does happen.  I would not hesitate to recommend her treatments
