Osteopathic treatment is an extremely safe and natural approach to healthcare which works with the body’s own heath and repair mechanisms. 

Osteopathy is a recognised health profession, and has the same safeguards that you would enjoy if you visited a doctor or a dentist.

The cost of your first appointment is £120, which is payable at the time of booking.  If we think that you’d benefit from further treatment, we’ll discuss with you which treatment package could be most appropriate.
Osteopathic treatment is gentle, some approaches are so soothing that the strongest sensation is of warmth, relaxation and tension being drawn out of the body.

No. Although many GPs recommend osteopathy to their patients, you do not need a referral from your GP to make an appointment.
Chris is registered with a number of insurance providers including Westfield, Simply Health and Cigna. Please check details of your cover with your insurer before booking an appointment. Our osteopaths are fully qualified members of the General Osteopathic Council.
