My telephone calls with Carol worked really well. She was able to reassure me and offer lots of advice in a kind and sympathetic manner as well as exercises to help my back pain. I would certainly recommend her! J.LI recently contacted Carol to ask for some advice to help manage the tension in my back and neck; which leads to frequent tension headaches and debilitating migraines. Ordinarily I would make an appointment to see Carol, but obviously during the Covid-19 restrictions that wasn’t possible. As I have seen Carol in the past, she is familiar with my situation and needs, and with a brief explanation of the current problem via email, Carol was able to identify and send me some simple stretches and yoga postures to help alleviate the problem. Carol also offered a video consultation should things not improve with the stretches. This worked very well for me. I was able to follow the diagrams and explanations of the stretches with ease and then report back to Carol by email after trying them for a few days. Having the option of ‘virtual treatment’ worked extremely well for me and I would certainly do it again if needed. JGI have had a bad left shoulder for years. Being a farmer this is not good. Even stepping into a hole brought on agonising pain. I had hardly any movement in it at all. Over the years physiotherapy,ultrasound and the NHS could not help. Then a friend recommended Carol, Eureka!
After the first session I was a lot better, after half a dozen sessions I have almost 100% movement in my shoulder and virtually no pain. I feel stronger and fitter than I have for years and even get a good nights sleep. I was 70 just before Xmas. I would recommend Carol to anyone with complete confidence.
I first contacted Carol at the beginning of January 2019 as I have had a painful back for well over a year. I was hoping it would right itself and go away! which of course it didn’t
It was the best thing I have ever done.
Since the first meeting and treatment my back has responded amazingly. Along with good sound advice of how to help myself, ie type of exercise and gentle manipulation, it has gone from strength to strength.
Carol has good sound advice and a very friendly manner which I find very reassuring and I would not hesitate to recommend Carol and her Osteopathy practice to anyone.S.S
Having regular treatment has given me a new lease of life, thank you!” MD (aged 83 and a half!)MD
Just wanted to say ‘WOW’! My husband came home yesterday and was bouncing round the house saying how good his knees felt and was so happy. This morning he said they felt ok as well and cycled off to work and he has informed me he did some stretches when he got to work. Thank you for looking after him so well. I have been saying he should see you and he finally got round to it and was really pleased.RP
When I started getting repeated episodes of acute lower back pain following a bad fall, a friend recommended Carol to me and, following just a few sessions, these episodes became less frequent and eventually disappeared altogether. Carol’s holistic approach and advice on exercises I could do at home after each session helped me to maintain this improvement in between visits, and thanks to Carol I am now much more aware of my posture and able to spot the early signs of stress pains and address them before they escalate.

My doctor tells me I have Occipital Neuralgia but apart from giving me pain killers ( with all kinds of side effects), he says there is no effective cure. After having several months of pain, I went to visit Carol after hearing her talk at a network meeting. She has seen me twice and I’m already feeling very positive because my pain is far less and on occasion completely gone. So thank you Carol, hopefully your treatment is going to be my answer.LM
Carol is calm and professional and makes you feel immediately at ease. Carol takes a holistic approach, making time to find out about your lifestyle and what external stresses might be impacting on your body. Carol uses very gentle manipulation and massage during the appointments and recommends useful exercises which have made a big improvement to my back. The appointments never feel rushed and I always come away feeling better. I would recommend Carol to anyone who is suffering from neck, shoulder or back pain. AH
