COVID-19 update: Re-Opening 1st June 2020
We have been given new guidance from the Institute of Osteopathy and The General Osteopathic Council and we are very pleased to say that from the 1st June 2020 we will be re-opening for Face to Face consultations at the clinic.
We would like to let you know that there may be a few changes to your clinic experience; we will be wearing full PPE and ask that you bring your own mask or face covering. We also ask that you attend the clinic alone, to reduce the risk to you and our staff. We will be undertaking more rigorous deep cleaning after each appointment. We will be staggering your appointments, or using one of the clinic rooms as a waiting area to allow for social distancing from other patients.
We will be ringing each patient before their appointment for risk assessment purposes; we kindly ask those that have come into contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19 or have experienced cold or flu like symptoms in the last 14 days (to include fever, cough, sore throat, respiratory illness, difficulty breathing, loss of taste or smell) to self-isolate and make use of our Video consultations.
If you are in the High risk Shielding category and have received a letter from the NHS, please do not attend the clinic, we also ask you to make use of our Video consultations, these will include:
– Discussion of any updates on your health or medications, as normal
– Checking your alignment with specific testing and movement patterns, then discussion of our working diagnosis and management plan
– Demonstration and advice on prescribed exercises and rehabilitation, plus mobilisation and movement techniques similar to our hands on treatment
– Advice on pain management and strategies to relieve your symptoms
– Stress relief and life-style recommendations to support your posture, work / hobby space set up, nutrition and general health
Our Video Consultation fees are the same as our Face to Face Osteopathic appointment fees;
£39 for your first consultation (45 minutes)
£34 for subsequent appointments (30 minutes)
We thank you for your patience and look forward to seeing you soon, from the

“They are lovely friendly professional people who dont go out of their way to hurt while they make things better. The rooms are relaxing and aftercare superb”
– Jo –
“Today was my first visit for a sports massage from Stuart and I can certainly recommend Williams Osteopathy. The facilities are excellent and Stuart did a great job. I’ve booked in again and am already feeling the benefits.”
– Jude –
“Whatever your problem Williams can help you fix it, my first port of call whenever I’m in pain. 10/10”
– Louise –
“Jo really seems to know which bit to “tweak” to make life more bearable and offers sensible advice as well as, perhaps, a couple of simple exercises. The cost of a few visits is a small price to pay to either eliminate the pain or understand how to manage one’s condition in order to reduce the pain and reliance on medication. My wife and I have both greatly benefited from treatments.”
– Alan –
“The relief of back, neck and hip pain during pregnancy was amazing. Couldn’t recommenced Williams Osteopathy more!!”
– Laura –
“I cannot recommend highly enough the quality of care received by Jo. I always feel great after treatment from Jo. She is professional and gives expert advice making me feel valued as an individual. Jo is wholeheartedly dedicated in what she does and produces an excellent treatment and service as a result”
– Katie –
“I’ve had a few treatments with Jo now and I can thoroughly recommend her. As a carpenter by trade I have lots of neck and back niggles, which she always manages to sort out for me with a few clicks, some soft tissue and acupuncture. Really handy to have home visit Osteopathic treatment when I need it”
– Clive –
“For the first time in years I feel I can move my arms and shoulders without wincing – Thank you!”
– Zoe –
“I have been lucky enough to have Jo practice on me throughout her training and would recommend her with no hesitation.
Jo is very professional, organised and thorough. She has managed to ‘fix’ various muscular problems for me over the years and I am completely confident in her abilities!”
– Nikki –

– Moya Wooler –
“My first treatment today. Jo is brilliant, first class knowledge and friendly. My treatment was applied with such skill. Definitely worthy of 5 stars”
– Tracey –
“I would highly recommend Jo Williams, she provided rehabilitation, Osteopathic treatment and exercises, after I fractured my arm in a riding accident. I found the Kinesiology taping really helped support my arm and improve the healing time. Couldn’t have got back to work so soon without her, thank you!”
– Caroline –
“Made the whole experience relaxing in a lovely environment and made me feel comfortable and thoroughly explained what my problem was and the treatment was done with expertise and politeness”
