Education & Training
Having a keen interest in biology, Valerie was inspired to study Osteopathy for it’s physiological effects on the body as a whole. Her approach to the body is holistic which was inspired by an Osteopath in Belgium who helped her when she injured her shoulder whilst competitively swimming as a teenager.
After several sessions of treatment on her whole body, and not just her shoulder, Valerie was able to return to swimming competitively resulting in her training and qualifying as a swimming teacher before pursuing Osteopathy and becoming an Osteopath in Kings Hill.
Valerie Legat – osteopath Kings Hill
Valerie has experience with patients of all ages and walks of life since working in practice in both Tenderden and London. Her youngest patient has been only 1 week old and her eldest 92 years of age. She adapts her skills to the patient’s needs and prides herself on the rapport she builds with each person.
Valerie completed her dissertation on migraines allowing her greater understanding into this debilitating condition. As a sufferer herself, she understands the importance of optimising the function of the body to minimise occurrence of symptoms.
Valerie is an avid climber at the weekends, both indoors and outdoors – a sport she discovered whilst at College. She also enjoys crafts in the form of knitting and sewing when time allows.

Such a friendly and welcoming environment. The two receptionists are lovely, very smiley and helpful. Valerie was amazing from the very first session. She was the ultimate professional and put me immediately at ease. I explained why I was there and she took detailed notes and laid out the treatment plan with no obligation to continue if I did not feel it was helping. I can truthfully say, following approximately 6 sessions, that it has been worth every penny. I was suffering from terrible headaches that would often last for days and since seeing Valerie they have almost completely stopped, and if I do get one it only lasts a short time. She has also given me exercises to do so I can continue benefitting from the treatment at home. I am continuing to attend sessions with Valerie that are more spaced out, with the eventual goal of no longer needing treatment which I felt no pressure to agree to but have chosen to do, given how helpful the sessions have been. Quite honestly, I think Valerie could double as a counsellor! She is such a good listener, and as an incredibly anxious person who usually dreads medical type appointments, I actually found I was looking forward to the sessions due to how much they relieved my stress and discomfort, and for the lovely chats. I found out about the service through my father who saw Valerie following a back injury that left him in agony and unable to stand for several days. After seeing Valerie, he is good as new and recommended her to me. I will try to get him to create a google account and leave a review but that is easier said than done so I thought I'd mention it quickly here. Thank you to everyone at Future Proof Care! read lessSteve West30/06/2021 - Google

She was very helpful in terms of how she explained complex physiological issues but in a very clear and intelligible way. The treatment was both effective and the after care has enabled me to re-continue my activity after a period of forced inactivity due to injury.Valerie always examined what the treatment would consist of and what positive impact it would have on the injuries. Personable and friendly I would highly recommend Valerie’s treatment to those struggling with ongoing injury. read less
