Before I starting seeing Heather for regular acupuncture, I suffered from migraines 2-3 times a month. Thanks to this treatment, I haven't had a migraine for over 6 months now, which is such a relief. I have a monthly treatment now, more for my general wellbeing.
I had a course of acupuncture with Heather. She always listened carefully and along with being highly skilled had a kind, sympathetic and wholesome approach to healing. IF you want to do acupuncture but are scared of needles she is the right person to go to.
Tom got straight to the root of the problem - I had been suffering from neck pain for two months and it was getting worse. I could not look over either shoulder and I was experiencing headaches and pain in my right arm. I could feel the tension in my neck and knew that a trip to the GP would be a waste of time - I would be given painkillers, not a cure. After two sessions with Tom I am completely back to normal and feel as though I am walking on air.
My son had been misdiagnosed with short achilles tendon for years. After discovering this we tried to get help in the country we live but success was marginal. As my daughter was very happy with the treatment Tom Bedford had given her, we made an appointment with Summeara. I was impressed with the progress she achieved in just three sessions. My son stopped twisting his ankles and knees when walking, started walking with his knees apart and can even run well. His mood improved and he is smiling more frequently now. Summeara heard my concerns and reassured me that what I'm doing is correct. She helped me understand that if my son's body suffers his soul will suffer too, and his confidence is as important for his health as all the sports he is trying at. I'm grateful and will do my best to go back to her whenevervwe are in the UK.
Thank you for your lovely feedback. It was a pleasure treating your son, I am delighted that he...

I have used Tom since 2007 and the first thing I do when I arrive every summer from the U.S. is to make an appointment to sort out my pain from several surgeries. I ALWAYS feel much better! I've never found anyone as good as Tom--from the U.S. to the U.K. Thank you!

I had suffered from pain in my lower back for a prolonged period of time and it came to a head when I was reduced to tears in a yoga class. A friend recommended that I see Tom for some treatment; after one session the pain in my back had almost completely vanished and after two I felt like a new woman. Since having treatments with Tom I've been back doing things that I had avoided due to the constant low level pain that I was suffering. An excellent practitioner who, unlike some others I have come across in the past, doesn't encourage you to undertake any more treatment than you actually need. I have no qualms about recommending him, or the practice, to everyone that I know.

Review for Ben Davies - Trigger Point massage therapist
After 10 years of severe hip and shoulder pain, where I struggled to walk during a flair up, I was feeling at a loss. During this time I had engaged in multiple different treatments, trying to resolve my physical health issues and get my life back. However, during that 10 year period, no practitioner from either the NHS or private health clinic was able to offer me a clear diagnosis or treatment plan which worked.
Feeling at a loss, I did a little more research of my symptoms on Google , changed tack and decided to try trigger point massage. Step in Ben Davies, who has changed my life .
Saying he's changed my life is a strong statement, but its true. He was the first practitioner to really understand my pain and develop a treatment programme that has brought about real results. I now walk without severe pain, and every visit continues to improve my mobility, whilst reduce my pain level.
Ben is very skilled at his work and has a very caring
The service was so friendly. The receptionist was lovely and helpful. I laughed all the time on the table - and had a good conversation about the world. When I walked in I was in pain from back ache and my right ankle was swolen. After a couple of sessions I had more mobility and less pain Summeara was helpful with a medical report and I thoroughly recommend her.

I had an car accident and got neck pain after the accident. After sent an email i decide to come in person to get more information. Luckily Tom's free this afternoon, so I had my treatment right a way. It was quick and effective. Like tom said, it was painless!

On both occasions I booked an appointment for treatment with Tim I was very impressed with his manner and expertise. He treated a trapped nerve and within the first treatment there was an instant difference. Since, I have recommended him to two friends who have also found great success with his treatment
Thank you Christine for your lovely feedback, it is much appreciated!
It is always scary to go for a session like that, especially because it involves rather a high price. However, I felt better immediately and the next day I forgot that I had pain. So I was very happy for my decision to seek for help, it has improved quality of life drastically!
I had 3 sessions with Tom a little over a month ago now, I wanted to leave some time before submitting a review to fully test whether the treatment I received fixed my problem. I take my running quite seriously but in the 7 months prior to my first appointment I was largely unable to run due to an unknown foot/leg problem. Several times I questioned whether I'd ever get back to fitness. My doctor and physio gave conflicting diagnoses and neither suggested treatment that worked. Tom's diagnosis largely matched my physio but his hands on approach really got to the root of the problem and I was able to run tentatively immediately after the first session. Yesterday I completed my first high intensity track session since treatment and I don't feel any negative effects from it, for me this was the final test before declaring myself fit again. Massive thanks to everyone at St Clements Osteo!
Keith, this is great news! We are delighted that you are fit again and that Tom's treatment help...

I was treated initially by Tom for an ongoing problem I have had with my thumb, which over the past 4/5 years has extended throughout my arm and into my shoulder, leaving me unable to write. I have seen physios, osteopaths, acupuncturists to name a few, but nothing has worked as of yet. Tom got me through my second year University exams and deadlines as his treatments allowed me start to write a little and be able to type for much longer without enduring so much pain. Since then, my arm/hand became worse again due to my role at work, and I was particularly getting new pains in my shoulder and back, so I saw Ben, for a massage. He has done a great job at loosening all the muscles that were so tense up my arm, in my hand, my back and my shoulder. I was in a sling because my arm was so painful, but after 3 treatments he made a massive difference and I was able to move my arm again! Both Tom and Ben have provided an excellent service and have given me hope!
Thank you Hannah! We are delighted that Tom and Ben could help you in their different ways and...

I visited Tom when I had exhausted all options recommended by the doctor and was still no further forward with relieving my excruciating back and neck pain which caused headaches and times where I could not stand up straight! Tom has been a miracle worker, using both massage and manipulating techniques to relieve pressure and pain, I could say after 3 treatments I was feeling elated! After 6 months of treatments and exercises at home I was definitely on the road to self managing the pain when it occurred. I now visit Tom for a 6 monthly 'MOT' and couldn't recommend him/the services any more.

Amazing and friendly atmosphere, felt completely at ease when coming for my treatment. My treatment itself was very effective after my first visit and after my second visit I am now free of back pain. Highly recommended. Thank you Tom!
Thank you Amie - we are delighted that you are better already!

I have been seeing Ben Ousey off and on since the start of 2011. I am a swimmer, who has undertaken increasingly long endurance swims, and have just completed a Two Way Windermere Swim (21 miles) in 10h46 minutes. This would not have been possible without Ben's work on my arms over the last couple of months (nor would I have got so far without the previous osteopathy work). Ben is friendly and interested in the effects of sport and I would (and have!) recommend him to people with sports-related-issues.
I had fortnightly massages with Ben Davies' when I developed RSI during my finals at Oxford. I am exceptionally gratefully for the work he did, reducing my previously unmanageable pain right down, and essentially allowing me to complete my finals. He treated the RSI in my neck, arms, chest and back with trigger point therapy. Due to his work and other therapies which Ben recommended such as qi qong, yoga and meditation, the RSI got much better even during a period of intense stress (the four months during my finals at Oxford) with many hours at a computer daily. I would highly recommend Ben for anyone with neck tension and RSI.
I also saw Tom Bedford when I woke up with a crick in my neck mid-finals which he amazing de-cricked!

I had a therapeutic massage with Ben. I can now extend my neck and no longer have such muscle tension. It went so well that I recommended him to my friend and my teenage son.
