Things We Love

  Thanks to a recent article published by an Osteopath based in Scotland, we were very excited to learn the ‘elementary’ piece of evidence that Sherlock Holmes companion, Dr Watson, was based on an osteopath!

 Sir Arthur Conan Doyle modelled Dr Watson on William Smith, a friend of his from medical school.  Both men were inspired by the teachings of Dr Joseph Bell due to his powers of deduction when diagnosing patients.  

 Following graduation, Smith travelled to America and played a leading role in bringing osteopathy into the 20th Century!

 Did You Know?

   I’m sure we don’t need to tell you that coughs and colds are rife this time of year, but did you know that they can cause additional strain to joints and muscles?

 If you are currently suffering, you can ease the affects by being extra aware of adopting a good posture and by carrying out stretches that counteract bad postural habits.

 You can find lots of useful stretches on our website


Watch Out For

 Following on from the recent update of our on-line booking system, it has come to our attention that some patients are experiencing problems due to using the old URL/link which has now been deactivated.  

 Please ensure you are accessing the new site by visiting and clicking on ‘On-line Booking System’.


And finally…

The practice will be closed, as usual, for two weeks over the Christmas period; 22nd December to 2nd January.  Don’t forget, our dedicated 24/7 reception team will continue to take your calls, with an Osteopath on-call for emergencies!  

Keep cosy this Winter!

 Warm regards,

Katharine, Louise, Nicola and David.
