“If you have a bad back, a bad neck, a bad leg or a bad anything else, Laurens Holve is your man. Some Woking osteopaths are osteopaths. Laurens Holve is a magician.” (Waldermar Januszczak, Sunday Times Art Critic)
I am a qualified Osteopath, Acupuncturist and Naturopath with more than thirty five years’ continuous practice in the UK. I hope I can be of help to you today.
Over a long career, I am pleased to have earned a reputation as a leading osteopath and acupuncturist in Woking, Surrey, helping patients of all ages to regain and rebuild their health through a treatment protocol uniquely tailored to their needs.
Regular attendance at lectures and workshops in leading London hospitals such as The Wellington, and St Johns and St Elizabeth, in St John’s Wood and Highgate Hospital in Highgate, as well as local lectures at Nuffield Woking, and St Peters Chertsey, helps me to stay at forefront of my field, and gives me access to consultants for opinions and referrals and if needed low cost scanning.

My professional expertise is somewhat unique in that my rich training and experience enable me to draw upon three medical disciplines: osteopathy, acupuncture and naturopathy. This offers the patient an extensive range of treatments to achieve clinically effective results.
I attend regular professional development seminars and I work hard keeping up to date with leading edge treatments in acupuncture and dry needling.
