Sarah specialises in the treatment of disc injury and nerve problems leading to either leg (sciatica) or arm pain.
I have been practising Osteopathy for 16 years and are registered with the General Osteopathic Council as well as a member of the Institute of Osteopathy.
The techniques I use are based on current medical research gained from regularly updating my learning by attending post graduate courses, regional osteopathic meetings and study groups (I have completed 15 days of courses in the 2018 alone!).
I aim to provide a professional service within a safe and caring environment and keep the patient at the centre of what I do. I want people to know that I have their best interests at heart and aim to treat everyone I see with patience, understanding and empathy.
I specialise in the treatment of disc injury and nerve problems leading to either leg (sciatica) or arm pain. The practice uses spinal decompression therapy – a non-surgical traction based treatment that has been shown to be 86% effective in research.
This is normally combined with specialist techniques designed to release restrictions in nerves either down the leg or arm. Sarah treats adults and children and babies.
A variety of treatments are used according to the needs of the patient including:
- Pilates based exercise, Theraband, Swiss Balls
- Postural, lifestyle & nutritional advice
- Mobilisations and joint manipulations
- Soft tissue massage and stretching
- Gentle fascial (connective tissue) techniques
- Ultra sound, TENS machines
- Variety of taping methods – myofascial, sports, McConnell
I am very pleased to have found Jess, after 5 weeks of pain and suffering Jess has released the spasm in my lower back and glutes and I am able to work tomorrow. She is very knowledgeable and experienced and has no problem getting deep into my tense muscles when others were not able. I have tried every form of physical therapy and a great osteopath is a golden find. Thanks very much

I have had back pain intermittently for a few year due to occupational activities. Whenever I feel the pain Sarah is the first point of call. She has "fixed" me more times than I care to remember. the absolute best care and professionalism always and I leave in better shape than I arrived every time.

I have been going to Bucks Osteopathy for 6 months and am a regular patient of Jess'. She has been great. I have issues with my lower back from past injuries, however I went because of pain in my leg and the issue was diagnosed quickly and linked to my previous back injuries. Treatment has been hugely effective and I've also had support outside of appointments as well, with exercises and life style changes to aid recovery. I've recently had a shoulder injury which again has been diagnosed and treatment has already made a started rapidly easing symptoms. They are COVID safe, responsive and friendly and all treatment is holistic, Jess really takes time to get to know you, how you work and what will work for you. I couldn't recommend them, and Jess, more!

I have been receiving acupuncture treatments with Ivan while undergoing chemotherapy, for side effects such as sleep disturbances. Ivan has always been very considerate, well informed and intuitive to the underlying causes, and the acupuncture results have been immediate with lasting effects. Ivan has always been very professional in his treatments, making me feel very comfortable and at ease. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend an acupuncture treatment with him, the treatment won’t cause disappointment.

For a year in lockdown I had a progressively bad back leading to sciatica. In desperation I made an appointment with Sarah. I'm amazed that after just 3 sessions I'm pain free and the sciatica has disappeared. No more sleepless nights and bending down without pain is such a relief. My only regret is I didn't go sooner. Can't thank you enough Sarah. Life saver!!!!
