"Due to a bad fall several months earlier, my left leg and arm became quite stiff and increasingly painful. Eventually, the leg pain was keeping me awake at night, which is why I made an appointment with Jenny Howell. Her treatment over the next few weeks worked wonders! She is meticulous in all her work, from diagnosis to physical manipulation. I am now out of pain, while the residual stiffness is disappearing fast as treatment continues. I strongly recommend Jenny to anyone who is looking for an osteopath who is both effective and understanding."
I went to see Jenny after experiencing pain in my back that made it difficult to walk and bend, and impossible to lift up my toddler. After just one session with Jenny my back felt significantly better, and it improved more and more over the next sessions. As well as helping me with the pain and discomfort, Jenny also gave me really effective pain relieving exercises to do at home (which I still use and which work really well), and great advice on how to look after my back. The difference before and after the treatment was remarkable, with benefits that I felt straight away and that continued over the long term. Jenny was also great at making me feel at ease and relaxed - I am very glad that I found the Heath practice.
I have always suffered from headaches, regularly resorting to over-the-counter and prescribed pain relief. I am 56 and had become really miserable at the constant strain of living with head pain.
I had my first treatment from Jenny and felt the benefits immediately. I felt as if it was the first time in years that I had been free of any headache and could stand with my back straight and my shoulders relaxed. I have had massage before with little noticeable change but this treatment felt very different Jenny gave me advice as to how to tackle the onset of a headache and since that first treatment my headaches have improved beyond belief. I used to think my headaches would always be a constant, painful part of my life - now I cannot remember the last time I had one.
