Our happy customers have a lot to say about our service!
Superb knowledge. I went to Glen with a hip injury that extended to my back and prevented me from sleeping at night to standing still. First session the back pain was gone. Hip pain needed some concentration. He is very professional and comforting. Lots of thanks 🙏
Very knowledgeable practitioner, who explained everything well, as well as tips for moving forward. I felt very at ease throughout the session, well listened-to and what Glenn said made so much sense with the problems I had been having. Thoroughly recommended.
Glen is very professional osteopath. I went with sciatica and after two appointments only the pain is gone. Thank you very much Glen!

Does Osteopathy Work?
There has been hundreds, if not thousands of peer-reviewed studies published looking into the effectiveness of osteopathy. The results of this research has led to The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), recommendations that manual therapy i.e. osteopathy be used as a treatment approach for various muscular and skeletal conditions.
Including lower back pain, sciatica, lower limb disorders and post-operative recovery after knee surgery. As well as many years of medical research osteopathy has over 140 years of patient recommendations.
Benefits of osteopathic treatment
You should feel improved mobility, reduce muscle tension and less pain, treatment can also be invigorating or deeply relaxing. In today’s hectic stress filled life, the nervous and endocrine system are placed under continued stress. While physical stresses and sedentary lifestyles cause trauma on the muscular and skeletal system. These combined factors can result in you suffering increased ill health, digestive upset and musculoskeletal injury.
Your first visit
On your first visit, we start by discussing the problems you are having. We then gather some information about your daily activities and then a detailed medical history. We want to make sure we have a complete picture about your current condition and you as an individual. Next we will complete a medical examination, this may include a postural assessment followed by examinations of joint mobility and muscle tension.
Depending on your presenting condition, we may perform some neurological, cardiovascular or orthopaedic tests. Following the examination your osteopath will discuss their findings and provide you with a diagnosis and treatment plan.
Feel free to ask questions throughout your initial consultation, your osteopath will be happy to answer any questions you have. Your treatment is tailored to your diagnosis and preferences but will always include hands-on gentle manipulation of the joints and muscles. Along with some postural advice and home exercises to help aid your recovery.
You almost always receive full and effective osteopathic treatment on your first visit. Unless your case is very complex, or additional medical tests such as blood tests or scans are needed to rule in or out a diagnosis.
With age, often comes increased aches. You’ll get £5 OFF your osteopathy and physiotherapy treatment.
Payment is made at the end of your treatment and can be made by cash or debit/credit card. We also except AXA PPP, Cigna and AVIVA private health insurance.
That is fine, however patients under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
What to wear
We want you to feel comfortable at all times, so please wear comfortable clothing, which enables your osteopath to complete a full examination of the area. For example men can wear loose shorts, while women can wear shorts and appropriate bra or sports bra.pages.
