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 London being in Tier 4, 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.

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 recently had a recurrence of the sciatic pain after a particularly grueling drive in heavy traffic on the M1. In very heavy traffic I was forced to keep my legs in one position - hovering over the accelerator - for several hours and for the next few days suffered for it. I realised that the previous bout also came after a long drive up to Norfolk.
I thought of calling you but in fact the exercises you gave me solved it - thus doing you out of a job I'm afraid!
I came to see Jenny a bit desperate after a month of lower back problems. She has definitely made a difference on my daily life and doubtlessly I would come to see her again if needed.
She listens to you and takes notes of what your problem/feelings are trying to understand where the pain comes from. Apart from her own manipulations and massages on you, she recommends specific stretching exercises that sends over e-mail and that me personally found very useful.
