The Heath Osteopathic Practice is open
The clinic reopened 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. This included increased cleaning and disinfection routines in the clinic and the wearing of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). 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 of 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.

Highly recommend Jenny's Osteopathic services
Hello, I visited Jenny with back pains and tightness in my chest and neck muscles and she really helped me. Jenny took a full analysis of my issues and explained in depth what I needed to know, and gave me a few useful exercises to practice to keep my back and upper body flexible. The day after I saw her, I noticed almost immediate improvement and my uncomfortable back pains had considerably decreased and I felt more flexible. She was really lovely and helpful and I would recommend her services to anyone with aches, pains or mobility problems!
I took my baby to Jenny and it was great for him, he is doing very well .
I went to see Jenny after experiencing pain in my back that made it difficult to walk and bend, and impossible to lift up my toddler. After just one session with Jenny my back felt significantly better, and it improved more and more over the next sessions. As well as helping me with the pain and discomfort, Jenny also gave me really effective pain relieving exercises to do at home (which I still use and which work really well), and great advice on how to look after my back. The difference before and after the treatment was remarkable, with benefits that I felt straight away and that continued over the long term. Jenny was also great at making me feel at ease and relaxed - I am very glad that I found the Heath practice.
