Great Customer feedback

I was suffering from excruciating neck pain and numbness in my hands, having little experience in osteopathy Matt came unreservedly recommended by three fellow gym aficionados. Matt is thorough and a total consummate professional, talking you through every step of the diagnosis, treatment and recommending a course of action and onward treatment. His patients, myself included are an advert for the results he achieves.- Catherine Chapman
Matt is simply a magician! As a personal trainer & someone who takes part in regular intense exercise, I find it invaluable to have someone of Matts expertise to keep me operating at my best. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable and his treatments are always effective. A good osteopath is worth their weight in gold and Matt is certainly that. Couldn’t recommend him enough!- Oliver Marchon
“Matt Walker was very highly recommended to me last summer and I have been seeing him weekly. Many of the chronic symptoms I had been experiencing for the past four years, caused by postural changes due to Parkinson’s, are now gone. Matt used techniques which gradually released old holding patterns. I privately called him “Mr Magic”: there seemed to be no stiffness or pain he couldn’t diagnose and work through.</p> <p>One year on, my chronically stiff neck, back and shoulders now feel ordinary and pain-free. Also I can now painlessly stand tall and straight once more (I had become bent forwards) and my walking is much better (I was shuffling my right foot). And at last I can type again with both hands (my right hand had lost the ability to type).</p> <p>Matt is without doubt an exceptionally gifted and brilliant osteopath. I would unreservedly recommend him extremely highly to everyone.”- Jane Caroline Lindsay PhD
“I saw Matt for a shoulder problem I’d had for years. He is brilliant hands on and also fab at creating an exercise programme individualised to you. Couldn’t recommend him enough!”- Maxime Neil
“After working in fitness for 12 years I have only ever had treatment 5 years ago for ‘general tightness’. I had been advised by colleagues that Matt is an amazing osteo, so I thought I’d book an appointment and see where we go… Matt was very informative, his clinical knowledge is outstanding, the treatment he provided to rectify shoulders, back/spine and hips were 1st class. I will definitely be coming back to get this shoulder sorted. The combination of soft tissue work with osteopathic manipulations were great – I feel miles better and much more free than I have done in years – energy levels are instantly better!”- Michael Minerve
“I went to see Matt with a back and knee problems. Matt was brilliant explaining the reasons behind my problems and giving useful advice to avoid any further injuries as well as easy to follow aftercare exercises. Matt is very professional, knowledgeable, friendly and treatments work extremely well. Highly recommend.”- Linda Calite
