The Heath Osteopathic Practice is open during the Lockdown
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 Lockdown, 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.

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 contacted Jenny having found her via a Google search. With intense treatment & extremely useful exercises, Jenny has virtually returned me to normality. She is a wonderful kind hearted soul, caring, understanding & with healing hands.
I will be eternally grateful for all her advise, treatment & guidance. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her osteopathic treatment to all.
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.
