The Heath Osteopathic Practice is open
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 being in lockdown again, Osteopaths as Primary Healthcare Workers, 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.

Before treatment: "Painful back, limited movement, restricted activity"
After treatment: "standing straighter, pain relieved, increased agility"
The difference that Osteopathy has made to me: "Awareness of how to look after my back and make it stronger despite advancing years!"
"Thank you again for your very efficient treatment and professionalism. I have been very satisfied with your treatment, and now feel well. Again many thanks"
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.
