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 being in lockdown again, 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.

have been seeing Jenny for a few weeks. and after 6 months of pointless physiotherapy i am now 99% better. she takes time to get to know your symptoms and treats you accordingly. i feel so much better. the whole treatment process has been 5*.
i highly recommend using the heath osteopathic practice
Jenny is kind and caring. I ended up going for further treatment on my knee after my shoulder "work"
the exercise sheets are a godsend too as can continue treating yourself at home to keep the issue's from returning.

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 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!
