Stella Arden D.O. Principal Osteopath

Stella graduated after the 4 year, full time course at the British School of Osteopathy, now called University College of Osteopathy, London, in 1984 and initially came to work in Lincolnshire for just a couple of years! Stella was invited to join Dr Peter Mansfield at his Grimoldby practice near Louth in 1986 and the practice has grown and consolidated with the help of several excellent Associates along the way. She established the practice in Woodhall Spa in 1991 and divides her week equally at both practices. Stella remains as committed as ever to Osteopathy and her special interest lies in helping people to achieve their full potential and recover confidence in their bodies, especially children. Indeed, her enthusiasm for her work is obvious to her patients as she is notorious for overrunning her appointments.
