The Heath Osteopathic Practice is closed for a short break, from Friday 13th May to Friday 20th May inclusive.
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 extensive experience of treating children and ante/postal women. 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 will continue to wear a surgical mask and implement my cleaning and disinfection routines, as well as providing ventilation, to help prevent the spread of COVID19, until further notice. I will also be continuing to require my patients to wear a mask, unless medically exempt, so that we can each protect each other. I have been doubly vaccinated and had the booster and continue to take lateral flow tests twice a week. Please cancel your appointment if you are feeling unwell with any signs of infection.

Jenny was brilliant! She really helped me with my lower back pain and was so kind and down to earth. Would definitely recommend.
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.
I had severe back pain for months if not years which I thaught were related to a bad move I made a while back, and that actually seemed to be due to my bad posture at work. In just a few sessions with Jenny, my situation improved drastically and I was then able to keep getting better through exercises that she gave me. I just started to climb again last week, which I couldn't do anymore for a while because of the pain, and everything went fine : no pain at all anymore!
