I have attended this Clinic regularly since January 2019 having suffered a bad fall that caused very painful injuries to my back and right arm. I had already been suffering with a lot of back pain for several years which my accident exacerbated. The initial consultation with Akin was thorough and his advice very clear. His treatment of acupuncture, shock-wave and manipulation I then received was very effective as I am no longer in pain; this is the first time in about 5 years and I am delighted. The treatment is provided at a reasonable cost. The overall service is friendly and efficient. The premises are always clean and well-presented. I have no hesitation in recommending this Practice.11/07/2019

Juan works miracles. I have spent the last few years seeing various osteopaths and although I knew it was beneficial, they never spent enough time physically working on me. My body was never worked on with such vigour and understanding as here! Juan got right to the root of the problems, the acupuncture loosened the tightness in my neck and lower back, meaning the deep tissue manipulation was incredibly effective. After some intense clicking, I walked out of the clinic differently. My entire body feels different, from my feet to my mind. I will go back next week for a little more work, and I highly recommend this practice. I actually burst into tears because of the relief that Juan was able to provide. Incredible! Thank you!4/10/2019

Juan Bedoya has been an integral part to my recovery and increased performance in the sport of powerlifting over the past year or so.He came to the diagnosis that I had a ‘squashed disc’ in the L4/L5 region of my lumbar spine. Meaning it was difficult for me to deadlift and squat to depth efficiently.Juan managed to get me back on track with a lot of spinal manipulation, acupuncture and shockwave treatments. Now I’ve surpassed my previous best totals under his care and rehabilitation exercise guidance.After 6-8 months I was able to compete in my first competition since my first appointment. Very knowledgable and always offers many suggestions to help support the rehab process in your own time.I highly recommend Juan if you have any issues with any back pain. He has a lot of patience and shows a lot of passion towards his work with his clients.3/10/2018

I go to see Ed for my monthly adjustments, he is an excellent osteopath calm and relaxing environment and good value for money. Honest advice and the best thing of it all is that he will tell you how many treatments you need rather than most therapists that string you along week after week for more treatments. Top Chap and a great laugh during treatments highly recommend!11/08/2017
