Changes during pregnancy include the softening of ligaments, weight increase and changes to posture, which can lead to additional pressure on joints in various parts of the body, including the spine or pelvis. Osteopathic treatment is gentle and aims to help the body adapt to the changes more readily. Our specialist Maternity Clinic offers reduced price osteopathic care for women throughout their pregnancy, as well as up to a year after the birth of their baby.
Available Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning
Our specialist Children’s Clinic is suitable for children of all ages, from birth to adolescence. Osteopathic techniques are tailored to each child needs and everything is fully explained throughout; in the case of babies, gentler techniques such as cranial osteopathy will be used.
Available Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning
Our specialist Headache Clinic was founded to help those suffering with benign yet debilitating persistent or chronic headaches*, which they have had for over 6 months. (It is not suitable for new onset headaches not previously seen by a doctor.) Consultations are provided by final year student practitioners, closely supervised by an experienced headache-trained osteopathic tutor.
Available Wednesday evenings

This specialist clinic offers a dedicated facility where patients experiencing women’s health issues can share their concerns and access professional advice and treatment. The Women’s Health clinic is led by experienced tutors who also lecture nationally and internationally on this subject; consultations and treatments are provided, under supervision, by final year student practitioners who have a special interest in the field. Together, our Women’s Health team can offer advice, reassurance and, where appropriate, treatment. They may also refer the patient to another health professional or to their GP for further investigation.

Follow ESO Clinic
I first attended the ESO on recommendation of my daughter-in-law to help with a pinched nerve in my spine that was solved after 2 or 3 treatments. As I found that my arthritis was also helped I have continued with a maintenance routine for approximately 2 years and now I would not do without it.
IPGeneral Clinic Patient
I experienced restriction of movement and pain in turning my neck, affecting my ability to drive safely. The treatment at the ESO is ongoing and has greatly improved the situation.
DPGeneral Clinic Patient
I have suffered with back pain and headaches throughout my pregnancies and the treatments at the ESO give me instant relief. I attend regularly and trust the team at the clinic completely. They have helped me enjoy two pregnancies, they are so friendly and it is affordable, which really helps with a young family. I also bought my son here when he was born. As a breech birth I wanted to ensure that he was checked and happy. They were great with him.
Mrs DaviesMaternity Patient
I bought my 15 year old daughter who had suffered injuries from athletics and dancing. She has been going to the clinic now for 10 months and it has been great for helping with pain relief. The student practitioners and tutors look at her complete care and have been great in recommending further avenues we can take to help her in the future.
Mrs MarshallChildren's Clinic Patient
I first visited the European school of Osteopathy with an injury exacerbated by sport and the care and attention received from both tutors and student practitioners was first class. The subsequent treatment received enabled me to resume playing my chosen sport. I continue to visit the clinic on a regular basis and patient care and attention continues at the high level experienced on my first appointment some three years ago.
B. M. ShortlandSports Injury Clinic Patient
The ESO have helped me on the road to curing a previous injury that was hampering my performance, they have also helped increase the flexibility in my back and shoulders which is exceedingly important to an archer.
Jacqui GouldSports Injury Clinic
As I have been a patient of the ESO on and off since the beginning of the year, I wanted to say how impressed I have been with all aspects of the school. I could not have wished for better care…. absolutely excellent in approach, confident but caring and with a real passion for what she is doing.
The receptionists have shown both patience and friendliness, very much adding to the warm and business-like nature of your school. The tutors have shown a nice balance of discipline and humour. I have appreciated seeing them at work and listening to their students views.
I find the ESO very good value for money and the 3rd year students very courteous and willing to learn. Helping these fine young students to progress in their careers is also very rewarding.
I have always received good care and my back problems have always been successfully treated.
I am using the clinic for the third time (unrelated issues), and have returned because I am so pleased with the service. The students are thorough and, following consultation with their tutors, give an informed diagnosis and treatment plan. They are polite, professional and respectful, as are the tutors. The reception team are welcoming and polite.
Since I started coming, from the helpful and pleasant reception staff to the level of support, care and attention given by the practitioners, I would (and do) recommend anyone who would need to come here to do so.
I took my little boy when he was 13 days old, one of the youngest patients they have had, they worked wonders on him after his traumatic birth and NICU stay. I have also had treatments and wouldn’t go anywhere else
Damien has been treating me for a couple of months now. Prior to seeing him I was getting daily tension headaches and in unbearable pain. I saw him in a last ditch attempt to help. I could not believe the difference after only one session. He’s amazing! He has healing hands and I can not recommend him or the clinic enough.
Brilliant service got the diagnosis and treatment really quickly, friendly and knowledgeable staff
