Today’s update is a positive one. 👏

Following guidance from our regulatory body and Public Health England (PHE), our Henley and Thatcham clinics are now OPEN. Our Newbury clinic will remain closed for now.

During this initial phase, we will be prioritising emergency and essential appointments.

This includes patients who have been experiencing high levels of discomfort and pain during lockdown, those who are taking regular painkillers or have been having difficulty sleeping, working or exercising due to pain.

Unfortunately, during this initial phase we will NOT be treating patients that are in self-isolation or those in the high risk category.


Osteopathy is considered an essential form of treatment as we are providing much needed support to the NHS and alleviating some of the pressure on other urgent care services within the NHS.

We have put strict health and safety protocols in place to ensure the safety of our patients and our osteopaths. These include;

Prior to your appointment:

One of our team will go through a risk assessment with you by phone to ensure it is safe for you to attend

You will receive a secure payment link to pay for your appointment in advance. This will help limit the number of touch points during your appointment

When you arrive for your appointment:
  1. Please remain in your car or outside the main door of the clinic and your osteopath will come out to meet you
  2. Hand sanitiser will be available and we will ask you to wash your hands before the appointment commences
  3. Your osteopath will be wearing PPE in clinic and we will be advising our patients to wear a face mask
  4. We have allowed additional time between appointments to ensure each patient has sufficient time to leave the premises before the next patient arrives
  5. All surfaces in the treatment room and toilet will be sanitised by the osteopath following each appointment

With these measures in place, we are confident that our clinics offer a safe environment for our patients and staff.
