The Heath Osteopathic Practice
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.

I highly recommend Jenny. My back had been painful for months after carrying my baby/children around and she fixed it in just a few sessions. I wish I had gone to see her earlier. Thank you very much!
I recently visited Jenny with a couple of nasty back problems, and came away after three sessions with her a new man. She quickly identified my problems were based mainly on the poor postural habits that I had
slipped into, particularly while at my desk. After some well-targeted manipulation, by practicing the simple but very effective exercises that she suggested to me, and after applying her suggestions about my bad posture, my pain disappeared very quickly. I cannot recommend her too highly, and I will certainly return to her without hesitation if I slip back into my bad ways.
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.
