How long do osteopathic appointments last?

Generally the initial consultation lasts up to 1 hour, and any further treatments approximately 30 minutes.

How much does the treatment cost?

For the first initial consultation the fee is £49. Follow up appointments are charged at £38. Please enquire with reception for ‘The Perrin Technique’.

Do I need a referral from my GP to see an osteopath?

No, GP referrals are not necessary as most patients ‘self refer’. Patients are encouraged to keep their GP and osteopath fully informed so that their medical records are kept up to date and complete.

How do I know if an osteopath is registered?

All osteopaths must be registered with the General Osteopathic Council. To check the register click here.

Is osteopathy safe?

Yes, extensive and stringent training over four years ensures that osteopaths have the necessary skills to care for you in a safe and gentle manner. Training is also given so the osteopath also understands when NOT to treat a patient as this is just as important as treating the patient.

By law, osteopaths also have to register with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC), the profession’s statutory regulator. Find more information about the GOsC here

Who can be treated?

Patients of all ages, including babies and children, are all welcome.

Can I rearrange or cancel an appointment?

If you need to rearrange or cancel your appointment, please give us at least 48 hours notice to avoid a cancellation fee of £20. This will enable us to offer your unwanted appointment to someone else.

Really nice people and service. Very relaxed, informal but professional. I didn't really have anything 'wrong' but every now and again I like to get checked over. Some tight vertebrae, tight muscles in my neck and thigh were identified and loosened off - as Olwen said I'd be an inch taller, not sure how long it lasted for though. As a desk worker Olwen also gave some really useful information on posture and seat setup that made quite a difference, can't recommend Leek Ostopathic Health Centre enough!

Kathryn Turnock

Fabulous! Helen White has been brilliant with both myself & my baby. I took Siân at 4 weeks old for help with her neck. Since born, she hadn't been able to look right very well. 3 treatments later, she was totally better. Such a relief. Sleeping & feeding improved. I have arthritis & I decided to give it a go for myself. Thank goodness i did. Huge improvement. Recommended to everyone.
