Osteopathy, Good Health in Good Hands
Experienced, safe and effective
Registered with the General Osteopathic Council

We are a professional, caring and friendly team of three GOsC registered osteopaths. Having worked locally as an osteopath since qualifying in 1994, I am happy that these days most people come to us by personal recommendations from previous clients. I am joined by my experienced associates Sam Dobbie and Rupert Warne.

Our clients range in age from newborn infants to the elderly.
Osteopathy is a modern, flourishing form of healthcare. It’s is a hands-on treatment that’s safe, gentle and very effective. The highly skilled diagnosis and healing techniques, learnt through many years of study, help people restore and maintain their optimum health.
People often assume that osteopaths only help with back, muscle or joint pain, but in fact we have a wealth of experience and techniques to work with a wide range of health issues  – from care during pregnancy, through to digestive disorders. We have also helped clients with postural problems and injuries, as well as those suffering trauma, stress or emotional difficulties. We are able to adapt to suit our patients’ needs, whether they are office workers, sports players, people with disabilities or retired people.

We are interested in identifying and treating the root causes of your symptoms.
Osteopathy is based on the principle that the body has an intrinsic ability to heal itself, and so we focus on treating existing conditions and preventing future illness. We consider your symptoms carefully in the context of your full medical history, lifestyle and personal circumstances, and like to discuss all our examination findings with you, along with our osteopathic diagnosis, treatment plan and advice. Our holistic approach ensures that all treatment is tailored to you as an individual. Our interest is in your long-term recovery.

General Council of Osteopaths Registration

In 1993 under the Osteopaths Act, osteopathy became the first complementary health care profession to be accorded statutory recognition. The GOsC, General Osteopathic Council is responsible for regulating the osteopathic profession in the UK and also for promoting and developing osteopathy. It has been given powers by Parliament to set standards of education and conduct and maintain a register of those entitled to practise osteopathy.
