You don't realize how much you need your back in everyday activities until you hurt it. I am not quite sure how I manged to damage it but I was in terrible pain and struggled to even put my shoes on! Tom Bedford quickly, miraculously and professionally put me at ease and in 3 sessions gave me my life and back back!

Since meeting with and being treated by Summeara, I can state the pain and discomfort of an ongoing problem, since taking an injury in a riding accident, has gone. I now enjoy routine maintenance and deep tissue massage which truly tackles the strains of repetitive working conditions. Thank you one and all at St Clements and the very friendly staff for being there when needed

Having had a low back problem for 10 years I had been developing chronic low back pain during the last six months. Without realising I had also been developing a stooped posture. On some days the pain was very bad and I had problems getting out of a chair and even standing up straight. After only one session with Tom I felt considerably better. After my second session a relative commented that I looked taller. She said I had lost my stoop and I was standing my full height again. Wonderful. My pain has gone and I feel much better in myself. I have some more exercises to perform and am looking forward to a better future.

I first received treatment from Tom Bedford 4 years ago with wonderful results, and so I knew that Osteopathy worked for me. After moving to London I visited other osteopaths for the same symptoms of back pain and headaches and though the worst symptoms were dealt with I still had constant low-level pain and was resigned to the fact that my condition was worsening with age. That is, until I came back to Oxford and had two treatments from Tom and felt 100% pain-free again. I think the main reason for Tom's effectiveness as a practitioner is that on describing your symptoms he listens to the smallest detail and therefore gets right to the root of the problem. He also tries to relieve your symptoms in as few sessions as possible whereas the practitioners I visited in London insisted I needed weekly treatments for quite a few months which was not only expensive but made me feel that my condition was chronic rather than 'curable'. Thanks Tom!

I had sudden onset of severe pain in my upper back and could barely move my arm. Four weeks and two doctors later I was no nearer to finding the cause of the problem. I was taking heavy duty painkilers and unable to work or to walk my dog. Then a friend recommended Tom Bedford. Tom examined me and diagnosed acute muscle spasms in my upper back and set to work to unlock the joints. Immediately I could move my arm! After the third session I arranged to return to work. My only regret is that I didn't try osteopathy sooner. Tom is easy going yet very professional. I've already recommended him to my friends. My dog and I are extremely grateful to him.

In 1997 I badly injured my right shoulder playing tennis, a sport I had always been particularly good at and loved to play. Six months of physio and gym exercise saw me back on court and swinging a raquet, but never to the same level as before the accident owing to the pain involved with a particular movement of my arm. After nine years of discomfort in doing many everyday things, from gardening to the washing up, in 2006 I visited a consultant surgeon and, after undergoing an MRI scan, was due to go under his knife. Then I met Tom Bedford. After one treatment, the discomfort in my shoulder was considerably reduced and the range of movement much greater. On Tom’s advice I decided not to go through with the operation but to continue with osteopathy as long as it produced good results. Those results have been very worthwhile. Sadly I live at some distance from Oxford, so treatments with Tom are only taken on those occasions that our paths cross (usually involving binoculars and birds!). I have benefited enorm

Whether it’s my seized shoulder, a cronky hip or a stiff neck, it’s such a relief knowing that Tom can mend me – as if by magic and often in a single visit!

Having damaged the tendons in my right shoulder more than 6 months ago, over-compensating with my left arm led to severe back problems, The pain became progressively worse, reaching a point where I was waking up in agony throughout the night and morning. It had become unbearable. Four sessions with a chiropractor, did nothing to solve to problem and I felt the pain was more muscular rather than a problem with my spine. After the first session with Tom, the pain had reduced in my upper back by around 60%!! Having endured weeks of agony, I found this remarkable. Currently, having just completed my third session, I have NO pain in this part of my back. The biggest difference to me is the quality of sleep, and of course, the absence of pain! I was very impressed with Tom's speedy diagnosis and how he targeted and worked on the pain from the onset. I was also impressed with his attention to detail and gaining an understanding of the exact status of the pain, and any developments since the last session. I have no h

After a bad fall the muscles round my lower back area went into spasm and locked the lower vertebrae on my back, as a consequence I could not move freely but after the third treatment with Tom Bedford, as recommended by my best friend, I was able to reassume my normal life and feel human again, now I am pain free and enjoying physical activities

After a work related injury, I suffered from intermittent numbness and severe pain in both my arms and hands, and tendonitis in my elbows. After more than 2 years of unsuccessful investigations and treatment from my GP and hospital consultants, my wife recommended Tom (who had previously successfully treated her long-standing neck and shoulder problems). After three sessions of Tom’s treatment and recommended aftercare, the tendonitis cleared up. Shortly afterwards, I was diagnosed with a new impingement in my neck, which Tom manipulated over two sessions. This decreased the numbness in my arms dramatically and I was able to get a decent night’s sleep and return to work for the first time in over two years. Tom’s treatment and advice has been a relief and a revelation, I have no hesitation in recommending him.
