Oliver Vass


Born at a very early age, I quickly learned English and how to walk in time to attend primary school. Building on those early successes I learned to read, write and execute mathematical calculations. My life of learning continued at secondary school getting O-Levels (yes, I am that old - I know it's hard to believe) and A-Levels, punctuating classes with a little acting and singing on the side, and finally my passion for helping people took me to The British School of Osteopathy.

Along the way I’ve raised three children all successfully to adulthood. My wife and I will soon reward ourselves for this 100% success rate by running away to a sunlit beach in a foreign land for a week or two, and be very smug about how proud we are of all three.

I’ve survived two years in New Zealand, the sudden destruction of my favourite car while I was in it, and more significantly many (mostly failed) attempts to hit a small white ball several hundred yards into a ridiculously small hole in a much larger blue/green ball with instruments seemingly designed specifically to frustrate that effort. I’ve also survived some years away from osteopathy in public health and caring privately in my home. After all that, I was very pleased to get back into clinical practice, doing the best job in the world.

I trained as an osteopath at The British School of Osteopathy graduating in 1998. Since then apart from a short break to work in public health, I've run my own clinics in Thame and Princes Risborough, and been an associate at practices in Wallingford, Bicester and Hillingdon. All this was punctuated with teaching Osteopathy at Oxford Brookes University and a couple of years at a clinic in New Zealand. More recently I've spent six years at The Orchard Clinic in Amersham until establishing The Foxholt Clinic in 2023

To find out a little more about me, take a look at my LinkedIntwitter or instagram (if you do that sort of thing). But I haven't updated them for some time, and I'm perpetually on the edge of walking away from social media completely! But aren't we all?
