My name is Karen Thornton-Smith and I have been the osteopath at Botanica since 2011. Although I moved away in 2014, I lived in Rusthall for over 25 years and retain great affection for the village.It gives me great satisfaction to be able to bring the benefits of affordable osteopathy to the local community. My own interest in osteopathy grew over many years of receiving osteopathic treatment myself.

As you will be aware from our recent correspondence, both Nicola and I are now on maternity leave. I can be contacted by email which will be checked once per week. In the meantime I have listed belowrecommended osteopaths who are aware of the style of treatment that we provide here and are happy to take over your care for this period of time. I will be in contact near the end of my maternity leave (July 2017) and updates about the practice will be posted on the website.
