I can't recommend Fiona highly enough as she has helped me immensely with terrible jaw pain. She is incredibly professional and is very warm and friendly. I honestly don't know how I'd be feeling without her!

Visited Essential Osteopathy after suffering with Costochondritis for 14 weeks. There isn't much information on Costochondritis available online and as it is quite rare doctor's sometimes don't know the best way to treat this. I had attended physio for 6 weeks with little improvement and was advised that hands on treatment would not benefit this and to do some gentle stretches and take anti inflammatories. Prior to this I was advised to rest (as at the time I couldn't do anything without it feeling like I was having a heart attack) but no amount of rest was taking the pain away, as soon as I got up to do something it was back in full force. Some of the stretches helped but not to the point I could go back to living a normal life (I was off work and could not walk over 5 minutes despite regularly going walking holidays and living an active lifestyle beforehand) However after one session with Essential Osteopathy I was back at work part time within 2 days and have noticed a significant improvement. I am in much less pain and only wish I'd went to Essential Osteopathy earlier!! Fiona is very helpful and makes you feel completely at ease. I have only had 2 sessions and I am finally believing it will be possible to get back normal. I recommend anyone suffering from Costochondritis to book an appointment as soon as possible!

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.
