the best treatment possible

The Osteopathic Centre

“I have always been proud to be an osteopath but never more so than over the past 18 months when I have seen most of our profession step up. Society has never experienced such enforced isolation and uncertainty in my lifetime and it has been especially hard for so many people. The personalised, person-centred care we offer is just what’s needed at the moment. We are at reduced capacity just now as Katie returns to work from maternity leave following the birth of her daughter Freya and the extra time it is taking to sanitise the practice, but we will do our utmost to treat clients who need our service”
The Institute of Osteopathy has reviewed Government and public health guidance and has confirmed that there is little change in the required infection control measures from 19th July 2021. It is also still recommended that patients wear a face-covering when receiving osteopathic care, unless exempt.

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It works with the structure and function of the body, and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together. Osteopathy is used to treat back pain, joint pain, sciatica, sports injuries and pregnancy pains, to find out more about these conditions as well as information on cranial osteopathy visit our page Osteopathy, or visit General Osteopathic Council.

The practice employs three osteopaths, Mary Vale, Katie Collyer and Alex Davies. Our experienced practitioners are all registered with the General Osteopathic Council.

Our Treatments

Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine used for diagnosing and treating a wide range of medical conditions. It was established in the late 19th century by an American surgeon and his principles are still in use today. Osteopaths treat the whole body, not just the injured part. Maintenance of good mechanical function is essential for good health and helps to prevent injuries reoccurring.

What Our Clients Say

“My back is improving, thank you so much it’s the magical touch!…….(Please don’t ever retire, it means I will have to find someone else) D.C.

“I am missing coming to see you, not just for my treatment but also for your support and understanding” A.H.

“Thank you so much for the lovely way you have worked with and helped Z over the last few weeks he has really enjoyed his visits. You have been so patient and kind and bought the best out in him. I have left each appointment feeling proud of our little chap and that perhaps we aren’t doing such a bad job……I will pass on superb recommendations to all that ask” K.E.   

“…….the last treatment you did was astonishing.  I arrived in a lot of pain and left with none. As you can imagine, it was a huge relief. What is more, by giving me a clear diagnosis, you enabled me to come to terms with the injury and understand what I had to do to help it to heal. That has made a big difference too” J.H.
