My aim is to use osteopathy to improve your muscular aches and strains, while also ensuring that your overall health improves.
I have particular interest and passion in treating babies and children. I believe that if we can get a baby and child to reach their own physical health, this will help in all areas of their lives.
We work on babies and children of all ages. Parents seek help and advice on colic, restless babies, brain damage, glue ear, dyspraxia, Downs syndrome and malocclusion. We liaise closely with midwives, health visitors and G.P.’s.
If you are unsure whether osteopathy can help you and your family, please ring or e-mail me.
I also offer free baby checks for up to six months after your child has been born. This service is to find out if there is anything that osteopathy can assist you with. It doesn’t include any treatment but is there so you can find out about us and we can give you advice if necessary. We continue on to treat about 30% of babies first seen at a baby check, but see this as a vitally important service.

Reflexology is based on the principle that reflex points on the soles, tops, and sides of the feet correspond to different areas of the body. In this way, the feet can be seen as a ‘map’ of the body. By applying specialised massage techniques to specific reflex points - using the thumbs, fingers and knuckles – the aim of a reflexology treatment is to help restore balance to the body naturally, and improve the client’s general well-being.
Some therapists may also work reflex points on the hands, ears and face; however it is the feet that are most commonly treated in reflexology.
