Biography & Background Information
Brent Osborn-Smith TD MBA BSc (Ost Med) DO ND PGDip (Ob Gyn) is one of London’s leading osteopaths and medical acupuncturists. He has featured in several television and radio broadcasts, as well as in the national press. His patient base ranges widely from centenarians to newborn babies. Some are "showbiz celebs", supermodels or dignitaries of one variety or another but most are just everyday, hard-working people, students, young mothers, babies, war veterans or even those of no fixed abode.

After a previous life as an Army Major, followed by a spell in the Venture Capital market in Edinburgh, he retrained medically as an osteopath. He is also qualified and experienced in medical acupuncture, naturopathic medicine, general psychological counselling and in the use of specialist equipment such as laser, electro-therapy and ultrasound.
At one end of the medical spectrum, he has set up and lectured on courses in military Advanced Trauma Life Support while at the other end, he helps to provide advanced osteopathic training. He has also completed a two-year long Post-Graduate Diploma covering all aspects of Women's Health and is one of the few osteopaths currently holding specific specialist qualifications in this very important area. He is currently undertaking further doctoral studies in psychology, focussing on the management of PTSD and its effects on the body as well as the mind.
As a naturopath, Brent sat previously on the Governing Board of the British Naturopathic Association, where he had responsibility for Ethics and Development.
A common thread has run through all three parts of his career and each has left him well grounded for the next. All require a structured evaluation of unique signs or symptoms (often under considerable pressure) and then an individual assessment of the overall situation, which depends on the people involved as well as the problems they face. This leads to the generation and implementation of an original, tailor-made plan.
Brent works closely alongside other orthodox and complementary medical specialists both within and outside the clinic. Together with technical ability, more than forty years worth of broad-based medical experience provides him with a solid framework from which to make people better.
