Alan Maitland, September 2019
I was having a problem with sciatica and taking a lot of pain killers. Joanna confirmed it was sciatica and bursitis. I received considerate treatment and Joanna recommended some suitable exercises. After two treatments the pain eased considerably and eventually ceased.
Helen Leach, July 2019
I would fully recommend Caring Osteopathy. Joanna has been working on my shoulder and arm using a combination of Osteopathy and Acupuncture treatment resulting in a successful outcome. She is an extremely pleasant lady and professional with her approach.
Fay Barnes, July 2019
I have been seeing Joanna for about two months now and she works with you to come up with a Care Plan which helps to treat your problem. After years of having back pain and seeing a number of specialists, I feel I have the full package with Joanna. With a mix of Acupuncture and Osteopathy treatment, as well as advice on exercise and stretches, I have noticed a major decline in the pain I was experiencing. Highly recommended!!!
Nicky Bolderson, June 2019
I have recently visited Joanna for acupuncture and found my treatments to be very effective. Joanna is very knowledgable and caring, I instantly felt relaxed and at ease with her. I would highly recommend Joanna for anyone seeking help.
Jan Biddle, May 2019
Excellent care. l have found all of the treatment very successful and has improved my health and wellbeing in general. I would recommend this for anyone who are struggling with pain and discomfort to see Joanna l have found her very caring and professional in every way, 10 out of 10.
Cathy Clayson, May 2019
I have full trust in Joanna. Her caring, warm nature makes one feel instantly comfortable and relaxed. I would thoroughly recommend her massage and acupuncture treatment, which feels that it is doing good. My neck and upper back discomfort is definitely being alleviated. Thank you Joanna.
Tracey Miller, May 2019
Very happy with the service I received at Caring Osteopathy. Joanna conducted a thorough consultation and successfully treated my back problem with a combination of Acupuncture and Osteopathy. Would definitely recommend. Thank you Joanna.
Beryl Ablitt, April 2019
Joanna is an exceptional osteopath. For me, she achieved healing results where others had failed. Joanna cured my crippling back pain in a few sessions with a combination of gentle manipulation and acupuncture. I would highly recommend her – she has such a warm, caring personality too.
Jennifer Crabbe, March 2019
I recently visited Joanna for a hip/leg problem and would wholeheartedly recommend her. On the first consultation she took time to truly listen to me about the symptoms I was having. After the second visit my symptoms had improved significantly …
Sue Grenville-Jones, March 2019
Having spent many years suffering from problems with pain in my neck, shoulders, lower back and particularly my right buttock which has been disabling at times I had almost given up hope of ever finding anyone who would be able to put together a care package that would be able to alleviate some or all of my symptons. By chance I came across Joanna’s article in a local magazine and it was the title, ‘Caring Osteopathy’ that really caught my eye. How I would love for someone to care about how I was, and who might help me when no one else could! I have found Joanna to be a highly intelligent, caring professional who is determined to get the best result for me. She has never promised a miracle cure and and has always left it to me to decide whether it would be worthwhile continuing with treatment. I know that I still have a long way to go as my problems stretch back over many years and I know that there is no ‘quick fix’. However I am confident that the care that I am receiving – mainly acupuncture – is beginning to show results. I thoroughly endorse all the reviews that are written below and recommend Joanna to anyone seeking help from pain or discomfort.
Harriet Northway, March 2019
Caring by name and caring by nature is just what Joanna is. I can’t recommend her more highly. I was able to get an appointment within a couple of days. The on-line booking service is very helpful in doing this. Joanna listened to my medical history, carried out a thorough physical examination and then shared her treatment plan with me, a combination of osteopathy and acupuncture. I agreed and the treatment began in her well equipped, warm, clean room. I have continued to see Joanna on a regular basis and am very pleased with the treatment I have received, which has helped with the pain and discomfort I was experiencing. Thank you Joanna.
Dawn Painter, March 2019
Joanna took the time to do a very thorough assessment of my back problem and to explain the treatment she would give. Joanna is knowledgeable and caring. She repaired my back in two sessions. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.
Amanda Rhodes, February 2019
I have found Joanna to be utterly professional, incredibly knowledgeable, and immensely thorough! She takes the time to explain things and does her utmost to get to the root of the problem. I wasn’t sure how the acupuncture would make a difference but was astounded how, when Joanna ‘hit the spot’, there was immediate and significant improvement. I have never felt hurried, and have felt Joanna to be absolutely focused on what she is doing.
Roz Miller, January 2019
For 4 months I struggled with tendinopathy on my right shoulder which created further problems with my neck and back, and though I was trying different treatments, I wasn’t getting better. By good fortune, someone mentioned Joanna at Caring Osteopathy so I booked an appointment. From this very first appointment I felt heaps better, I was so grateful. The progress I have made over several appointments now has allowed me to sleep better and move well. The great care that Joanna gives each time makes me come away feeling fantastic – thank you very much!
Lauran Church, January 2019
I’m very impressed with the treatments I’ve received from Joanna for long-term neck and shoulder problems. Her very thorough and diligent approach is clearly backed up by a wealth of experience in osteopathy, acupuncture and sports massage. She listens carefully before explaining and discussing her course of action. Her very effective treatments include advice on managing the condition. No hesitation in recommending this excellent practitioner!
Gloria Towner, January 2019
As a keen hill walker with an arthritic knee. I didn’t want to keep taking painkillers to help manage the pain when I walked so I thought I would try an alternative. I was a bit wary about having acupuncture but I was in a lot of discomfort so I took the plunge. I don’t know why I was so worried because Joanne put me at my ease straight away and talked me through my options. I suffered no pain as the needles went in. After the first session my knee felt so much better, so much so I went walking in Wales a few weeks later and managed to walk up and down a hill. I have had two more sessions since and have found walking much easier. Thank you Joanne.
Carole Martin, December 2018
The title of Joanna’s clinic sums it up perfectly, “Caring” is at the route of everything that she does. I started seeing Joanna before Christmas after suffering with hip pain since March 2018. Having been to my GP I was told it would be 12 weeks before I would get in to see physio so I thought I would look at alternative practitioners. I am so glad I found Joanna, she listens to the problems you are experiencing and then explains the treatment she is going to give. At each point of the treatment she checks that you are ok and understand why she is completing a particular movement/stretch. She works with your body and always makes sure you are comfortable. I have also had acupuncture treatments, which have been very effective. After each session Joanna always leaves me with a range of exercises to continue with at home to help my mobility. I am gradually improving and this is down to the wonderful treatment I am receiving. I have no hesitation in recommending Joanna to anyone in need, she is amazing.
Sharron Wight, December 2018
A total and thorough, confident and professional service with the comfort of being in a “safe pair of hands”.
Clare Nixon-Young, November 2018
Having been to several practitioners I can confidently say that Joanna is outstanding. She listens intently, and is keen to do thorough investigation to check that she has diagnosed the problem correctly so you have maximum gain from the appointment. She guides you through each step of treatment so you are aware what is being done and why. I particularly liked the combination of stretches, massage and acupuncture used. After my first appointment for a trapped nerve in my lower back, I instantly felt better within a few hours of seeing Joanna. I am now receiving treatment for a shoulder injury that is over a decade old and already feel after two treatments that I may eventually make some progress after doing a number of different therapies elsewhere previously. Joanna is flexible with her appointments to try and accommodate the fact I am travelling over 40 miles to her clinic and is a genuinely lovely lady who clearly has a passion to help people.
Cathy Page-Nash, November 2018
Excellent service in clean , bright airy conditions. I had every confidence in the practitioner.
Becky Diaz, November 2018
Got recommended to Joanna from a client of mine after expressing how much pain I was in with my shoulder as I have a shoulder injury from years back that has reappeared after pushing too hard in the gym and repetitive strain from my job as a hairdresser. I had been to doctors on many occasions only to be fobbed off with strong pain killers. I’ve had physiotherapy at the hospital and no relief from that, and I’ve been to a chiropractor and felt a hundred times worse for the treatment.
Joanna gave me a thorough examination and consultation and treatment on my first appointment which eased my pain a little. On my second appointment I had acupuncture and felt a difference in my pain level straight from leaving the clinic which was such a relief. I have since had one more session of acupuncture and my pain has almost gone, allowing me to work with out pain. Joanna emailed me exercises to do to keep me moving in the right direction of which I adhere to. Joanna is extremely professional in every aspect of her work. Explanations were given on every treatment with her. I would highly recommend Joanna to anyone seeking relief from pain. Thank you Joanna, from one happy hairdresser.
Louise Bloxham, October 2018
I would highly recommend Joanna. First off I was surprised to be able to get an appointment as soon as I needed it, in total I’ve had 3 appointments and I am already back to my energetic self. Also I haven’t had any headaches since having acupuncture, which is an added bonus! Joanna informed me well during all treatments and has a gentle approach, I was also able to stop at any time if I needed to. Overall Joanna was extremely thorough, knowledgeable and conscientious.
Geri Brown, October 2018
Came to Joanna suffering from lack of sleep and fibromyalgia pain … after the first session I went home and slept for 7 hrs that night …. Joanna is very patient and listens to exactly what you are saying …. she helped me greatly and I highly recommend her …
Edward Ellis, September 2018
Excellent service, needed treatment immediately and was able to get a same day appointment. Have been able to have follow up treatments which really helps as I have a number of medical problems and Joanna is excellent at dealing with me. I can really feel at ease and talk through the best way to treat certain issues. Joanna really gets to the right spot with acupuncture. There is no pressure you can have as much or a little treatment you want. Would highly recommend.
Liz Myles, August 2018
Joanna provides excellent treatments. A few sessions with her were very beneficial in easing my recurring back problems.
John Grindle, August 2018
I initially picked Joanna because you can book online and pay by card. She was brilliant and very professional all round, sorted my back and knee out in no time …
Chris Fowler, July 2018
If you are thinking of going to see Joanna, do not wait, she expertly found the problem with my shoulder and in three visits she has put me back together again. Thank you for your help you are very informative about what treatment you are doing and I felt confident in everything you did. With best regards Chris.
John Morley, June 2018
Joanna very quickly diagnosed my problem with my hand, treated it and gave me lots of advice on how to prevent future problems. I had previously been told I had arthritis and had to use painkillers: I now have full mobility and no pain.
Mika Vasic, June 2018
Joanna helped me to overcome my back problems with her vast knowledge and gentle approach. I always felt safe and informed prior to and during treatments. Highly recommended.
Sarah Ursell, May 2018
Joanna is a highly professional multi skilled practitioner with effective and long lasting treatments. I see her on a regular basis for acupuncture and craniosacral osteopathy to manage stress and tension and find that I always leave the session lighter, calmer and with a much looser body! Her ability to listen and empathise is also always much appreciated. Very highly recommended.
Claire Bosanquet, May 2018
I went to see Joanna over a 2/3 month period for a chronic shoulder condition, which got to the point I could hardly move bring my arm over shoulder height. With lots of care and attention, including acupuncture, the movement is amazing for me, and no longer rules my life.
Hannah Walton, May 2018
Joanna is the best osteopath I have ever had treatment from. Initially I saw her several years ago due to a shoulder injury I had previously been told would never repair properly. Joanna worked tirelessly to ensure I had the best treatment possible and I now have a shoulder that is as good as before it was injured. Joanna has also supported me through my journey from being completely unfit 18 months ago to now having run the London Marathon last weekend – and thanks to her treatments beforehand, I finished the marathon without any aches or injuries. No ache, pain or strain is too much of a challenge for her! Joanna is extremely knowledgeable and professional and I recommend her to everyone. She listens and explains everything before proceeding with any treatment. Joanna, you are a superstar!! My journey from unfit to marathon runner would never have happened without your hard work… thank you 🙂
Steve Power, March 2018
Caring is a word often used today, but seldom delivered to a consistently high standard. You can be assured of a caring and highly professional approach when you visit Joanna. After 4 days immobilised in bed with lower back pain (lost a fight with flat pack!!), I reviewed many osteopathy providers on line and the Caring Osteopathy page was, by far, the most compelling option. Following an initial consultation and assessment it was clear that I was not just the problem but very much part of the solution. Joanna is an excellent listener and she explains every aspect of the treatment confirming understanding and agreement before proceeding. After my back was fixed I asked Joanna to review a knee condition. I now have a far greater understanding of the muscular/skeletal links and inter-dependencies from hip to foot. Seeing Joanna is not just about getting fixed. If you really want to understand and manage your condition in the long term with Joanna’s support then Caring Osteopathy is the place for you.
Riou Baxter, February 2018
My right hand shoulder joint had been badly damaged due to excessive weights use in my local gym etc. After a 6 week intensive therapy course with Joanna this had improved vastly. I can highly recommend Joanna and her practice, for high patient care, along with careful explanation of treatment and continual shoulder joint exercises.
Sue Aldous, January 2018
I have been seeing Joanna for a while, initially for a shoulder problem which, thanks to her treatment no longer causes me problems, but now because a fortnightly treatment helps to keep me aches and pain free! She is extremely conscientious and professional and her knowledge base is second to none. Treatment is discussed and reviewed each time and with her wealth of qualifications there is always something that helps. No hesitation to recommending Joanna.
Stephen Kenyon, January 2018
Highly recommended for the whole package of treatment; flexible in approach, ready to explain and explore what’s happening, respectful of boundaries and concerns – above all, very effective!
Mary Taylor, January 2018
Joanna puts you at ease straight away, and listens to your problems. Her knowledge of the human body is outstanding, which gives the patient every confidence. My back problems had been ongoing, but after a few appointments the pain eased, and she was very helpful in suggesting regular exercises at home. I would thoroughly recommend her.
Dan Mowlam, December 2017
You can be sure that you’re in the hands of a professional. Joanna is thorough and listens, she makes you feel at ease and gives great advice. Caring Osteopath does what it says on the tin. Joanna eased my back pain. I have also recommended one of my parents who suffered pains too. Would highly recommend.
Sandra Dorey, November 2017
Joanna, I came to you with a painful lower back that no pain killers could touch.
After a very careful and thoughtful assessment, your treatment left me able to get in and out of the car without pain for the first time in ages, and over the next few days the pain improved immensely. So much so that I was tempted to cancel my follow-up appointment. I’m glad I did come to see you a second time as you were able to show me exercises to help me stay healthy. I would whole-heartedly recommend you to anyone!
Anna Sayce, October 2017
Joanna is a fantastic craniosacral therapist/osteopath. The several sessions I had with her helped me through the aftermath of a nasty chest infection. She takes time to really listen, get to the roots of what is going on and make recommendations. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a caring and effective craniosacral practitioner.
Claudia Moore, September 2017
Having had a couple of sessions at Caring Osteopathy I feel so much better and healthier. The nagging pains have subsided and I feel lighter and more able to exercise regularly. Joanna is very calming and thoroughly professional. She also gives lots of helpful tips and exercises that you can do at home.
Dirk Aldous, September 2017
Joanna impressed me from the start with the thoroughness of her initial examination and the detailed review taken at each session but more importantly she has resolved a very painful debilitating bout of sciatica. Many thanks indeed!
Ian Baker, August 2017
I went to Joanna after over a year of pain in my right shoulder. Careful assessment and a range of treatment approaches along with a targeted exercise programme (nothing too strenuous) over 3 sessions fixed the problem. Joanna is friendly and professional and always explains her thinking and methods. Highly recommended.
Janet Blakey, July 2017
… I have had a recurring back problem for some time and have tried several different Osteopaths and physiotherapists with varying success. … I have found Joanna to be professional, caring and very good at her job! I have never had treatment that works as well as the treatment I have received from Joanna. She is very understanding and … she makes you feel at ease at all times. While I was receiving treatment my husband sustained an injury and went to Joanna for treatment. He had never been to an osteopath before and was very apprehensive but was soon put at ease by the professionalism shown to him, and he was amazed how quickly he responded to treatment. I would highly recommend Caring Osteopathy and Joanna.
Liz Ridley, July 2017
Joanna is very knowledgeable and I have found her treatment for my hip most effective. She also gives simple exercises along with her hands-on treatment. I would thoroughly recommend her as an Osteopath.
Catherine Shippey, June 2017
I found Joanna to be extremely thorough and interested in my back problem. She … enjoys problem-solving! She started by looking closely at my posture, … and gave me appropriate exercises to do. She also informed me of what I needed to do in the gym, and necessary cool-down exercises following exercise. Also, she advised on my swimming activity, and what strokes to use to help my back problem. Her attitude is one of professionalism, great knowledge and warmth … and checking on the progress you have made. My back is so much better following a few visits to Cheselbourne, so Joanna’s treatment has really helped me. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Mary Yarwood, June 2017
I first consulted Mrs Figg-Latham several months ago for a back problem and not only found her very professional but also kind and understanding of my particular problem. I would have no hesitation in returning to her for further treatment.
Kevin Gordon, May 2017
I found Joanna to be very friendly and she put me at my ease straight away, I was suffering from quite debilitating back and neck pain and after only two sessions I feel like a new person. She explains the mechanics and theory of her treatments at depth in a professional and clear way and I would highly recommend her. Many thanks Joanna!
Carol George, December 2016
My husband John has been attending Caring Osteopathy for two months now because of pain in his shoulder arms and wrist. Joanna has worked extremely hard to reach the root of the problem and has been very caring and supportive. John is now starting to reap the benefits of her hard work and we would recommend her to anyone experiencing pain of this nature.
Emma Childs, November 2016
Thanks for keeping me injury free for the London Marathon …
Liz Cooke, October 2016
I have been treated several times by Joanna. She is informative and explains exactly what she is going to do and why. I found her very helpful with exercises to continue with after I had seen her. I thoroughly recommend Joanna and if you are at all worried about your treatment she immediately puts you at ease. End result I was able to move again. Thanks very much!
John Bunford, January 2016
I found Joanna to be very professional and thorough in her examination of my issues, finding and resolving problems, some of which weren’t apparent to myself. Highly recommended.
