I have long standing back pain and had tried many other local clinics in the past before I discovered BOP. Although sceptical at first, through a combination of Osteopathy and Acupuncture I am now coping much better with my back pain (which is nowhere near as excruciating as it used to be thanks to the experts at BOP). I've found all staff to be extremely courteous and knowledgeable and they always put you at ease. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others and in fact I have done already. Two friends have also visited the Chiropodist there and another has even had a hot stone massage and swears by it!
Susan Bunce and her team of professionals are wonderful. They have helped me with migraines, muscle soreness and even skin issues! My partner now goes once a month for a massage and comes home relaxed and stress free - simply the best!!
I have visited the practice due to some bad back pain. I was treated by Osteopath Matthew Schofield. Overall my experience is really positive. It was easy to schedule the appointment. The receptionist was really nice. The osteopath has kindly explained the reason for my pain and what are my options in regards to my treatment. I have had a follow up appointment. I would really recommend the osteopathic practice it to anyone who needs it.
Chris is brilliant at what he does and that is to provide a 1st class treatment and service for people who suffer with pain. I have always suffered with a problem - particularly with my lower back and I used to see Chris when it got bad - normally through stress - but I have found life a lot easier and the pain a lot less, when I go for a monthly check up and tweak. (I know ‘tweak’ is not the technical name for it but you I’m sure you know what I mean!) I look forward to visiting Chris as I know that I will leave his clinic feeling better than when I arrived. I can highly recommend him.
I have been having accupuncture for a couple of months with Chris and it has already made a massive difference for my fibromyalgia symptoms. He was very honest in what to expect results wise which was a very refreshing change and explains how he’s trying to help each issue I’m having in my sessions. I would definitely recommend him very highly
I visited a few chiro’s and osteo’s and was beginning to give up when I was recommended to try Chris, I’ve had lower back pain for a while, I have a desk job during the day and I also like high intensity workouts so probably every osteo’s nightmare! But Chris has been amazing at treating the issue, I trust him completely and my back is so much better from his treatment. Chris explains clearly what he’s doing, what the issue is and what the long term plan is. Would highly recommend to anyone who suffers with back or neck pain.
Chris Brooks provides an excellent osteopathic treatment. He is very knowledgable and offers really helpful advice on everyday living. The receptionists at the practice are also brillant. They are welcoming, friendly and most of all helpful. They seem to know every therapist too and the team always seem happy, which is an added bonus for me. 10/10 rating on the team and on Chris.
I have seen osteopath Sue at BOP for many years periodically, as have my family. I am always amazed by her skills and her empathic approach is wonderful. She also has a humour, which when you are in pain, makes you feel at ease straight away. 10/10 everytime!
Rebecca is a fabulous acupuncturist. I have had really good results from my first appointment. She has helped me massively and I trust her 100%. 10/10 rating.
Diane's treatments are always both enjoyable and helpful, enabling me to function physically. She is an excellent therapist and provides really useful advice. 10/10 on my overal experience.
I saw Sue Bunce for hip, knee and neck pain. Her amazing skill and strong fingers soon had me relaxed and eased from pain, freeing my movement to a point I had given up hope of achieving. I also saw Rebecca Bond the acupuncturist for hand, wrist and finger pains and stiffness. She is wonderful, has a great humour and is sensitive in her approach. She definately got results with me and my movement and grip in my hand, wrist and fingers is better than it has been in a long time. I also feel more energetic with her treatments. I cannot speak highly enough of the practice, they are skilled medical practitioners and I will always be thankful to them for improving my quality of life.
Always friendly & efficient, totally professional & highly effective. Thoroughly recommend seeking their advice for a wide range of problems, always worth asking as the clinic offers a wide range of therapies.
If like me you have had no luck with traditional NHS for a medical problem, I cannot recommend BOP enough.,My therapist has completely changed my wellbeing and has improved my health holistically without the use of drugs or long waits in packed waiting rooms. The staff are friendly and offer so many therapies to enhance your health.
Both myself and my wife use various people at this clinic depending on what we want to address. I have just been to see Emma for a few sessions on the Bowen technique. This addresses the tissues just under the skin and so feels quite gentle when compared to deep tissue treatment. It seems really surprising that a gentle touch can encourage misbehaving tissues to get back into line. I like to try various massage techniques to discover which ones have the best impact. Look out for the last minute bookings (you need to register your email address) and save yourself some money while giving your body a little treat to help keep you in top form.
Always come & see Sue when I need a reset! Have also tried the reflexology, both treatments are fantastic. Also have bought gift vouchers for family & friends which are always greatfully received.
Lovely receptionists, very welcoming. Diane is the best osteopath ever. Thoroughly recommend the practice.
I highly recommend Susan Bunce. I have visited Susan for a number of years. She has successfully treated me for various ailments including, back, knees, neck, shoulder and foot. She is knowledgable, professional and friendly. The ladies on reception are also very friendly and helpful.
Fantastic. Helpful, professional staff. Same day appointment. Reasonable fees. And, most important of all, I feel better!
Friendly is the way I would describe BOP. Professional and efficient, definately, but above all else, friendly.
I started seeing David Feakes for Homeopathy as I have endometriosis and wasn't sure on my chances of getting pregnant. He helped me to prepare my body for before, during and after my pregnancy. I can't recommend him enough.
I was treated by David Feakes, Homeopath for an eye problem that I had had for around about a year. Despite going to the Doctors on numerous occasions and to the Hospital my problem was never identified. After talking to me and listening to me explaining my symptoms he was immediately able to identify my problem and then prescribe a remedy for it. The remedy worked and I have had no further issues with my eye since. I was very impressed with the understanding, knowledge of Homeopathy that he has and the care that David took, i would not hesitate in recommending him.
Ben has treated me for back and shoulder problems and I have left feeling so much better and pain free. Really wonderful! He is kind and sympathetic whilst remaining professional. I would highly recommend Ben and the practice as a whole.
I took my 5 month old son to see Gemma who has dramatically improved his feeding issues, and did the sessions in a way which was age appropriate with toys for distraction. Both Gemma and the lovely receptionist were very friendly.
Louise Shannon provides the most fantastic Neals Yard Facials. I come to see her if I feel the need for a bit of me time pampering. She offers lots of special packages for me to sample too. So far I have had reflexology, hot stone massage, facial uplift and the gorgeous neals yard facial too. A great way to spend an hour or 2!
Another brilliant massage with Beverley Underwood. She is a miracle worker. She has totally sorted my back out as i do abuse it alot working and at the gym. Also since I have been seeing her my performance at the gym has improved. 10/10 in everyway I rate this lady!
Sue Potten is both amazing and so friendly too. I find the whole treatment very relaxing. It is amazing that you can feel so much better with just having your feet treated. My whole body feels better after a trip to Sue the chiropodist at BOP. Keep up the good work Sue!
I had a nutritional assessment with Helen and it has totally changed my life for the better. I have learnt such a lot from her and it was so beneficial. I have even lost weight, which is another great bonus. Thanks Helen and the team at BOP.
Chris is an amazing osteopath. He takes time to address all my aches and pains. He is both friendly and attentive and I always feel I get an excellent treatment with him.
I find my whole treatment with Sue Potten the chiropodist very beneficial. It is amazing how you feel the benefit in your whole body when your feet are treated. Well worth the £27 per visit. Money well spent. Thanks Sue
Ben is a fantastic osteopath and a true credit to his profession. He is both warm and welcoming and puts you totally at ease. He even remembers things going back months that we talked about and provides a really excellent service. We are most grateful to him and recommend him to everyone we know.
Thanks Beverley for helping me survive the talk I gave last week. Without you it would have been a repeat of last years fiasco, but it appears to have been a great success. My colleagues have even taken the time to email me and say how brilliant i was. The benefits of hypnotherapy have been amazing and I can't believe I am saying that. Many thanks Beverley!
Sue Potten is not only a fantastic chiropodist, but she is such a lovely, caring practitioner too. She takes time to discuss with me about my foot problems and then what she and I can do to help. I look forward to my treatments, not only for my feet, but also for a good laugh too.
I have attended BOP for nutritional appointments with Helen Mayors and just want to express how it has totally changed my life for the better. I have also lost weight as a result and the appointments have been so beneficial to me. I have also attended the practice for back pain relief, which was also great. Good work BOP, keep it up.
Sue Bunce is simply fantastic. She is also very approachable, friendly and I benefit hugely from my treatments. My treatments have exceeded my expectations and the staff are all so lovely and welcoming. Keep up the good work team BOP!
I would like to express my sincere and utmost thanks to Beverley in respect of the Hypnotherapy treatment received recently. This was and is the most effective tool in dealing with issues which are often impossible and painful to deal with individually this most valuable tool helped by a most proficient practitioner such as Beverley. My experience was incredible. This was not an instant fix but a sure and steady change to stop "rabbit in headlights". behaviour and anxiety especially when dealing with dramatic shock and high emotion. With these sessions I found an ally within my subconscious. Hypnotherapy is an amazing therapy!. I would highly recommend it as a tool for your mental and physical wellbeing.
Chris was very professional and explained exactly what he was going to do all the way through my treatment, which included manipulation. He gave guidance on when to get treated (to prevent the restriction getting so bad) and some preventative exercises. The results have been amazing, not only with the instant relief but I have remained pain free with full movement.
As someone who has practiced yoga for 16 years and worked and trained with an osteopathic practitioner I have a lot of experience of physical therapies. Chris Brooks clearly knows his stuff. He picked up on a subtle imbalance through my hips and was able to realign it, released tension I was holding in my neck and shoulders and gave me specific exercises to work on to prevent further problems. He has the strength and confidence in his hands to make adjustments effectively and easily. I left the plinth feeling reinvigorated and have set up monthly sessions with him to continue the work we did.
I had a first visit with Matt yesterday. A fantastic feeling from entering the door to be greeted warmly by Rita. All the therapists I saw were smiling and very friendly. My treatment with Matt was first class. Well recommended .
“Helen has taken such good care of me over the last six years. Sometimes quite literally putting me back together & I don't know what I would do without her. I am continually amazed at Helen's knowledge of how the human body works (or often doesn't in my case!).”
“Helen has treated me for the last 20 years, and I have never met a more knowledgeable practitioner, I would not have been able to carry on playing sport to the level I have enjoyed without the regular ‘MOT’s she has provided me with. All treatments are fully explained and carried out with the utmost professionalism.”
Since seeing Matt, my low back pain has completely resolved. He was the first person to give me a clear diagnosis on what was causing my pain, and ways to manage it myself. Matt has been very kind and helpful throughout my treatments, and now I just have to pop in occasionally for a bit of maintenance. I've recommended him to all my friends and family.
I have been a patient of Sue’s for over 11 years and have always found her to be extremely courteous, a very good listener and compassionate about what she does. I have felt a great improvement in my back condition and the pain associated with it and now attend for maintenance treatments. I have recommended sue to both friends and family, whom have all been equally as pleased with their progress.
I have received treatment by 4 osteopaths, prior to Sue and in comparison find Sue to be incredibly competent, professional and attentive in her treatment. She has addressed many problems for me and I now attend on a maintenance basis. I will happily recommend her to my friends and family in the knowledge that they would be treated with respect, consideration and the utmost care. I personally feel sue should be commended for her professionalism and dedication to her patients and her practice.
Sue has been treating me for various activity related injuries for the past 3 years. Throughout this time, I have always found her courteous, polite and professional. She consults me regarding the nature of any injury, its significance to my health, work and leisure commitments. She explains what treatment options could help me, provides sound and positive advice and carries out treatments with the expertise one would expect of such a well-qualified professional osteopath. My husband and my daughter have also been treated by Sue and I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone.
