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. As Osteopaths we keep up to date and build on our skills and experience, by attending courses every year. This has included Courses at the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy, of which I am a Member. Other courses include ergonomics or work station postural advice, paediatrics and pregnant women. I have experience of treating children and ante/post-natal women. I am fully insured and registered with the General Osteopathic Council and with most of the private health insurance companies.
New Government Guidelines for Primary healthcare have changed and practitioners and patients are no longer required to wear masks during appointments. If you would like to continue to wear a mask then you are welcome to do so. If you would like me to wear a mask then feel free to request I do so. It would be appreciated if you would wear a mask if you have any signs of a virus such as a cold or cough or have had recent contact with someone who has tested positive. I will do the same.

Jane is very friendly and knowledgeable. She is very skilled and was able to help. When I first went to see her I could hardly walk from a pulled muscle/ nerve and was in severe pain. Thanks to her i felt a difference very soon after and the pain stopped. I would highly recommend Jane and will definitely use her service in the future if needed.
I spend long periods of time at a computer and because of this and the stress of meeting tight deadlines, I experienced a lot of pain in my neck, shoulder and arm. I had little movement in my neck and was having difficulty turning my head. I was experiencing discomfort at night while sleeping. However, after only a few sessions with Jenny, things got sorted through massage and manipulation.
She gave me a series of exercises to do, which I still do, and recommended a pilates class. I haven't had any trouble since. I think anyone who spends a long period of time in front of a computer should see an osteopath regularly to ensure they are not doing any lasting damage due to stress and poor posture.

I was suffering from neck and shoulder pain that was not going away by itself. Jenny very quickly diagnosed the problem and provided treatment that immediately improved the issue. After just three visits, the pain was completely gone. I was very pleased with the treatment I received from Jenny and would recommend her to anyone with a similar issue.
