Very good service from everybody here. I had been struggling with sciatica for several months. Had 3 visits with Summeara who identified the cause and helped with a treatment plan. 3 visits and I am now pain free.

Myself and my daughter both use Iffley Turn Practice. They are all lovely and have been a massive help to my daughter who does a lot of rowing.

Without Tom my life would be unbearable and not worth living.I travel from the Isle of Wight to see him because he is so good. He is very disability aware and has a level access treatment roomI have had 3 failed lumbar spine surgeries which cause severe pain and restrict all activities of daily living.Thank you Tom for enabling me to attend family events and playing with my friends grandchildren.
I have not been there for a while but it used to be a great place. Great professionals that knew exactly what my needs and my pain was.

I have been sceptical about chiropractors and osteopaths for years from various bad experiences and also from their lack of standard medicine practice. For the first time I was not just pleasantly surprised but wowed by the professionalism and expertise of Mrs S Bedford at Iffley Turn Practice in Oxford. She heard in detail all of my issues and where the pain was, worked on me with techniques I never imagined possible and shown me immediate results in my movements. It was a great experience from start to finish. If you are not sure , sceptical or suspicious about 'these people', this place is where you need to step into. The cost was also not as eyewatering as I initially assumed either!

The care I have received over the years at Iffley Turn Practice has been exceptional. Summeara, in particular, is an excellent osteopath. After her sessions I find that I instantly feel better. She is highly skilled, and also compassionate and takes the time to know her clients. She has helped me manage various musculoskeletal issues, particularly neck and shoulder pain. I would highly recommend Summeara.

Life savers!I have been few times due to a back pain and always few immediately relief after a session.SUMMEARA BEDFORD was who fixed my back pain.

I had two sports / physio massages with Serhii who was great. Very friendly and attentive and really listened to me to try out what was wrong with my back and how he could help. He spent time explaining everything to me and gave me lots of advice about exercises I can do at home. Feel like I’m on the road to recovery now thanks to Serhii
Heidi E.
Summeara was a star! I had a bad back from gardening so with a friendly attitude and a professional manner she sorted me out. Just had my follow up and I am well on the way back to normal movement
Paul D.

My honest review of iffley turn practice.Since 2021 I've suffered with cervicogenic headaches which are extremely painful & have caused me to suffer anxiety & depression.Shortly after being diagnosed with the mentioned above I was in desperate need of help & here's where (iffley turn practice) comes in.The staff at the ITP we're amazing especially the gentleman Ben ousey who was the person who genuinely turned my life around physically & mentally, I honestly don't know where I'd be now without the help of Ben .Five star's are not enough, so from my experiences from this place are nothing short of life changing, if you are struggling mentally or physically do not hesitate to contact IFFLEY TURN PRACTICE, It will change your life , it did mine .I'll be forever grateful for there help .

Tom Bedford is amazing! Within two appointments over 5 days he fixed my back. I was in so much pain and unable to walk or sit but he worked his osteopath magic and I am so so so much better. Tom is incredibly calm and thoughtful and explains everything really clearly as well as gives you the information you need to be able to help yourself. The clinic is clean and modern and quiet. Highly recommend!
Chloe P.
I highly recommend Summeara for Osteopathy. I had an ongoing problem with a pain in my temple for which my GP initially put me on Steroids, thinking it might be Temporal Arteritis. It wasn't thank goodness. Finally it was suggested it might be a 'mechanical problem' so I made my appointment at IT.I had had this condition for about 6 months by now but it only took 4 sessions with Summeara, and her targeted neck and back manipulation to free up the nerve that was trapped within my solid muscles. It wasn't painful or unpleasant and we chatted happily throughout my sessions. I'm so relieved to be free from the pain. Thanks again, I can't thank you enough.

I’ve had occasion to visit Tom Bedford for over 30 years. Tom and the team really welcome you as well as providing reliable treatment and advice . I would recommend them without hesitation. J Walsh

Iffley Turn Practice has a very welcoming but professional vibe. The booking process is straightforward and the appointments always start on time. The clinicians are highly skilled, friendly and helpful. I wouldn’t go anywhere else and I highly recommend it.
Lynn T.
I have been going here for years now, even travelling back from Spain to come here and get my back sorted as Summeara is the only person I’ve found who can help me! I would always recommend this practice for top class treatments and lovely people!!
Kirsten R.
Having suffered severe sciatica post a back injury Summeara provided an excellent programme of treatment that has led to me being back on my bike after two months 😊 Thank you
Simon G.
I've been seeing the ostheopats from this Practice for years now, and I find them the best in town 🙂 Very professional, helpful and carring. Always helping with my complains. I'd recommend them to anybody!
Dorota S.
I have attended Iffley Turn Practise for many years whenever I needed treatment. Ben my osteopath is a warm friendly professional man whose treatment I trust completely. I always feel better on leaving and get relief from my pains very quickly. If any females are worried about stripping off I would like to say I wear leggings and a vest over my underwear for modesty and this does not interfere with Bens treatment.
Angela A.
Wonderful first session with Ben.Suffering from Neck Pain and Vertigos, I was able to get an appointment really easily in less than a day.The treatment provided really helped me to feel better.In addition, Ben recommended various mindfulness techniques that will help in the future.Thank you so much for your help !
Alexis L.
I have been having osteopathy treatment with this practice (including at the previous premises) for almost 10 years, and am incredibly grateful to Tom for regular treatment to sort my back and neck pain. I have always found the osteopathy treatment really effective, but have also found the practitioners to be really professional, kind and friendly. Highly recommend.
Damaris D.
I’ve been visiting the practice for years on and off as required and can very happily highly recommend them.
Susanna B.
I no longer live in Oxford but one of the few things I miss is the wonderful services provided by Iffley turn practice and in particular Tom Bedford. I have nothing but thanks to offer for helping me manage my back issues and I wish I could pop in as easily as I used to.
colin M.
I am so grateful to the Iffley Turn Practice for making sure my back is pain free. They are so kind and skilled. Thank you!
Katherine P.
I’ve been a patient of Tom’s for many years now, seven to be precise, and in every instance I’ve had to visit Tom at the clinic to deal with my lower back issues he ‘s always managed to resolve the underling cause of my lower back pain. In no small measure Tom has had a big influence in the way I approach my musculoskeletal health promoting the importance of physical exercise and body movement. This has reduced the number of lower back spasm episodes significantly, which has given me better quality of life.I cannot speak highly enough of Tom’s knowledge and professionalism. I have had other treatments elsewhere and rate Tom at the very top.
Thomas G.
Highly professional and effective treatment - Tom Bedford has got me through slipped discs and neck injury and also provided 'MOTs' that have kept me healthy over the last 20 years. Thank you!
peta S.
Nice comfortable treatment rooms, convienient location and excellent customer service. I have seen Neil a few times for osteo treatment who is exceptionally knowledgable and skilled, he takes time to explain eveything that he is doing and worked with me to develop a treatment plan that was convienient, affordable and successful.
Professional, friendly and effective. I have been going to the Iffley Turn Practice for more than decade and they have always fixed my aches and pains.
Craig S.
I can’t recommend Iffley Practice highly enough - osteopathy has made a huge difference to my symptoms and all the practitioners I have seen have been excellent.
Catherine K.
The treatment I've received from Tom Bedford for my intermittent lower back pain has been absolutely first-rate - both in easing the symptoms and giving helpful advice to reduce the risk of future problems. He also has a lovely manner - friendly and non-judgemental. The charges are very reasonable and certainly good value. Would recommend without reservation.
Martin W.
Highly recommend! Summeara was very friendly and fixed me up in just one session. She also recommended some exercises I could do on my own to strengthen my shoulder and avoid having the same problems.
Julia Salafranca G.
I suffered from shoulder pain for more than six month and after I’ve seen Tom it was all gone. He was brilliant . I highly recommend it 👌🏻.
Khalil M.
I have suffered with lower back pain since my first child was born nearly 9 years ago. I tried absolutely everything to find some kind of relief, I had physiotherapy and acupuncture I saw a chiropractor and an osteopath (elsewhere) recieved MRI and CT scans with nothing showing, I then had three sacroiliac joint injections but still nothing worked for me. I then lost 4 stone in weight in the hope my back pain would ease. Still nothing! A family member recommended Tom Bedford to me and after just one session my back pain had gone completely. I then had two more sessions with Tom and I can honestly say he has changed my life. Thank you, Tom.
Amelia W.
Neil Morgan has been amazing in our sessions - he really takes the time to listen to you, and always makes sure that you are comfortable with what he's doing. Very helpful, and highly recommended!
Graham R.
Friendly, safe environment who always manage to sort my back with just one Osteopath session.
After 18 months of constant hip and groin pain and a ridiculous amount of scans, Physio and antibiotics and still no diagnosis for my pains, I went and saw Tom Bedford at Iffley Turn Practice who pretty quickly suspected I had a labrum tear in my right hip and suggested I had an mri arthrogram to specifically look for this issue. Well he was absolutely right and I am now due key hole surgery to repair the issue. I am so glad I went to see him.Easy booking system, Tom was great, welcoming and friendly. Easy to find and plenty of parking.
Ian S.
Very professional and knowledgeable ostepath, wouldn't go anywhere else
Jeano L.
Well organised for covid. Online booking, bell push on the door, sanitizer etc. Thank you Ben for a beneficial session
Sue B.
It's friendly and I've had several wonderful experiences here getting a massage which worked both for my body but also the therapist was intuitive and very 'tuned in ' and nourished my soul - which needed some support and grounding.
Currently receiving treatment from Corrinne having never seen an Osteopath before. She is amazing and i could feel the benefits straight away. She is straight talking and honest with the treatment she is giving. Absolutely recommend this practice.
H A H.
Ben is my hero. I was suffering from acute pain in my left temple, jaw and had sensitive teeth. I was maxed out on painkillers. Ben did his magic and even after the first session, I had significantly less pain. He was also good at looking at the issue holistically which I appreciated. I feel like a new person!
shout out to Mrs Bedford. 5⭐ be seeing you again Monday
Gary T.
This place is great very professional clean and tidy had a pain in my neck after treatment by Ben I felt brand new thanks I really recommend it if you're suffering
David B.
I went to Summeara last December following a fall down the stairs at home. I had pain in my side, she diagnosed fractured ribs and helped me to be able to breathe. She was so professional and attentive, even called me the following day to see how I was feeling. Last week I was playing tennis and did something to my knee so yesterday I had an appointment with her to see if there was anything she could do as I was having trouble standing and walking. Following a massage of my leg I was 95% pain free… Summeara is an incredible person and practitioner, her manner is so gentle and caring, she takes the time to listen before forming an opinion and then treats the issue. I would thoroughly recommend her for any aches and pains before running to a chemist for painkillers. Can't wait for my followup treatment next week.
Kris S.
My mum Sara received wonderful treatment here she said there was excellent communication and professionalism. The treatment has provided her with a lot of relief from her pain and she would highly recommend. Thank you so much!
Vanessa P.
Anytime I feel I need a realignment I always pop in
Delroy I.
I have seen Tom Bedford several times with a troublesome shoulder and am completely satisfied with my treatment. He and his staff are always friendly and Tom is very good at explaining things to you. I can thoroughly recommend this practice to anyone.
Linda K.
Can't say enough good things about Iffley Turn practice. Many of my friends also go here, because we all keep recommending the place. The receptionist is helpful and friendly, and always gets back to me quickly. And the treatment I've had has been thorough and we'll explained. You also get a helpful email reminder if your appointment.
Erin W.
Acupuncture sessions with Emily Carson are fantastic: Emily is considerate, kind and professional. I feel that I respond so well to her treatments and would recommend booking in with her for treatment and relaxation!
Tracy W.
Tom Bedford is a very experienced practitioner who had been helping me with my back for years now. My back is pain free most of the time now, and a regular MOT with Tom helps me keep it that way. And when I do pull something and end up in pain, Tom's the person I trust to help get me back on my feet again. Highly recommended.
Mark K.
I would strongly recommend the osteopathy treatment at Iffley Turn Practice. Each treatment I had with Summeara significantly eased the stiffness and tension in my upper back and neck after having injured it. This also gave me greater mobility. I was able to discuss with her exercises that I could do in my own time to ease the discomfort, which was very useful.
Rachel R.
Always feel amazing after leaving here, back in line!
Hannah I.
Thank you to Ben for the most blissful Mindfulness course (4 lovely weeks). I learnt so much in a very relaxed space. I shall defiantly continue and will look forward to meeting periodically with the group for a "top-up".

My 5 years old daughter had cricked her neck out of sudden with extreme pain which we had to take her to A&E. Half of her body locked down and couldn’t move. After A&E’s treatment, the pain went, however one of her right shoulder was much higher than her left, her spin was in ‘S’ shape.Summeara from Iffley Turn Practice took her on the same day after soon after our A&E visit. With her treatment, my daughter’s symptom had significantly improvement. On the second day, my daughter’s body back to normal. She was amazing on dealing with my daughter’s case. She was patient, friendly and being flexible with bookings.
Jessie L.
The practitioners I have seen at this practice are outstanding: thank you James Thirlway my acupuncturist and Tom Bedford the osteopath for keeping me fit, healthy and happy!
Joelle M.
The staff are very knowledgeable and incredibly friendly. Tom has helped me "back on my feet" on numerous occasions. I would not trust anyone else with my back! I have no hesitation in recommending this practice to anyone.
Lucienne B.
Big thank you to Summeara for the treatment and exercise routine she gave to my son. After struggling all season with muscle and tendon issues pulling his heel out of alignment he was back on the pitch today at the Charlbury Tournament after five weeks of barely kicking a ball. To watch him play you would never know he had been away, to see him score a cheeky lob over the keeper from just inside the opposition half was priceless.
Paul W.
First class. I've received excellent treatment from Mr. Ousey. Would recommend pre race check up for would be marathoners (or half marathoners)
John O.
My lower back was very stiff and painful and with a little manipulation and massage from Summeara it made a huge difference.
The new venue is light and airy and relaxing. I love this place.
