The Heath Osteopathic Practice
The clinic re-opened in June, following the lifting of the lockdown. A risk assessment was done and a number of changes made, to help reduce the risk of infection with COVID19, during Osteopathic treatment. Despite the latest government change, bringing London into Tier 2 restrictions, Osteopaths as Allied Healthcare Professionals, are permitted to continue working. As a regulated profession, we are constantly updating and reviewing our work practices with regard to the changing healthcare situation and governmental advice. Please see the appointment page for more details and the full risk assessment on the Articles page on the website.
If you wish to make an appointment, you can now do so online, as well as by phone, however, I will need to conduct a screening call to assess whether it is safe to have a face to face appointment. If so then I will be conducting the case history over the phone.
My name is Jenny Howell BSc (Ost Med) DO, ND, MSCCO and I am the Osteopath at the Heath Osteopathic Practice, in Tufnell Park in Islington. I trained at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine and have been working as an Osteopath since 2005. I have attended some of the Cranial Courses at the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy and have now registered as a Member with them. I am currently studying for a post-graduate Award in Paediatrics at the Osteopathic Centre for Children. I am fully insured and registered with the General Osteopathic Council and the Institute of Osteopathy and with most of the private health insurance companies.

I had been receiving treatment from Jenny for just over two weeks and as a result I am now back to feeling normal again. Jenny is a very caring, approachable and welcoming person with a caring heart and invaluable skills. She described everything in simple terms and made me feel very relaxed. I couldn't recommend Jenny more to anyone who needs to see an Osteopath and I hope that her business continues to change peoples lives for the better!
I highly recommend Jenny. My back had been painful for months after carrying my baby/children around and she fixed it in just a few sessions. I wish I had gone to see her earlier. Thank you very much!
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.
