Fiona is an exceptional bodyworker - through a combination of osteopathy and acupuncture she successfully 'fixed' our 21 year-old's back problems, which had been an issue for many years. The improvement after the first appointment was amazing, and after four appointments he feels better than he has his entire life. Her understanding of the body is superb.

I brought my 9 week old baby to Fiona in the hope of calming him down, he was a very unsettled wee boy who didn’t like to be held, fought against sleep and never seemed to relax. He was also suffering from silent reflux and congestion which meant he grunted in his sleep constantly. He was a premature baby and Fiona explained about the effects prematurity and a tricky labour can have on babies nervous systems, the science of it totally made sense to me and immediately made me feel like the problems he was having weren’t down to anything we were doing wrong...very reassuring.
Our appointments with Fiona have made such a difference to him. Immediately after the first session, we noticed a difference in his contentment, he was sleeping more soundly and stopped thrashing around and grunting as much. We had three sessions in total and thinking back to what he was like before, I’m amazed at the difference in him. He’s no longer “wired” and is so much more chilled out and enjoys cuddles with us. His reflux has disappeared and we’ve been able to stop his medication which is a relief. Most importantly we’re getting 5 hours sleep out of him which is incredible!
Fiona was great with our wee boy and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and her treatment to any mums wondering if their babies would benefit from osteopathy.

Fiona is honestly the most dedicated osteopath, and is taking all the right steps to treat during COVID19 to provide incredibly helpful, safe, and positive treatment (as always). I had a successful appointment today. Aside from following all the health guidelines set out by the government, and using the proper PPE, she still makes sure you are feeling safe and comfortable, and it's the same quality treatment as before COVID19. It is not in the least bit scary, and after attending recently I could not be more grateful for her courage to treat and all the steps she has taken to ensure safety for all her patients and herself. When booking, you'll be required to fill out a form on COVID related info (are you at risk, do you have symptoms, etc.), it only takes 30 - 60 seconds and is required for booking an appointment in accordance with government guidelines. As per these guidelines, patients MUST wear a mask, and it does not prevent you from breathing normally by any means, even when lying face down. This is to protect you, her and anyone else you come into contact with. Naturally, it is also required for you to use hand sanitizer before and after the appointment. I could not be more appreciative of her treatment and her dedication to safety.
I highly recommend her, and I have been seeing Fiona for over a year now, she's always so friendly, supportive and kind, she has helped me recover from debilitating back pain that took me out of studies of conservatoire for two years. Without her treatment, I would not have been able to continue in my studies as a violist due to the physical nature of the career. Thanks, Fiona!

Having had severe back pain since for a few years it flared up badly at the start of lockdown and I was what I can only describe as a 'tetris' shape. After only a couple of appointments with Fiona I felt a massive improvement and I can not recommend her highly enough.
I was a little apprehensive at first due to the Government announcement about safety measures but I can honestly say there was no need to worry at all. Fiona is very helpful and the treatment was not impacted at all. The process is very clear and Fiona is so well organised that you are made to feel safe and comfortable from the moment you enter. The quality of the treatment is not impacted at all and I felt reassured as Fiona had all the appropriate measures in place such as pre-screening checks and appropriate PPE. Throughout Fiona explained all processes both treatment and safety measures which really put me at ease.
An excellent osteopath and I am so pleased that she has opened back up and that I did not put off booking. I've already recommended her to family, friends and work colleagues.
