I have seen Jo so far for only two sessions of Osteopathy and can honestly say my sore back and pelvis have almost completely gone. From quite early in my current pregnancy my lower back and pelvis area were incredibly painful when moving from one position to another. I was suffering from shooting pains and longer dull aches most days and it was becoming more difficult to look after my active Toddler. Jo’s professional and confident manner put me at ease instantly during our first session and there was an immediate improvement after that session, the second session was just to straighten out any further issues which it seems to have done. I would not hesitate to recommend Jo and her expertise and I will be a patient again in the future for any further issues.
Right through from the initial assessment, diagnosis, treatment to providing aftercare advice, Jo has been outstanding. Long standing injuries have been resolved within a few weeks of treatments. I wish I had been referred to Jo years earlier, she really is a credit to her profession.
My son was born this year and being over ten pounds, left my stomach in need of urgent attention!!! Having been to Jo’s pilates classes for many years, with amazing results, I knew she would be able to help. I asked her to give me half an hour a week of intensive stomach work over a period of 8 weeks and although I was exhausted and would have much preferred half an hour of sleep, Jo’s enthusiasm and motivation kept me going. By the end of the 8 weeks, Jo had managed to transform the way I looked and I was back in a bikini which I never thought possible in only 2 months.
I first went to Jo due to pain in my hip and knee, after only 2 sessions of osteopathy treatments, the pain disappeared. I then went on to have 1-1 sessions to improve my Pilates technique. Jo identified other problems and with the 1-1 sessions these were resolved, thus making me more aware of my walking style and the issues it was creating in my body. I am now 100% pain free and have gained the knowledge to prevent losing the joy of long walks and exercise.
Having suffered with a back problem and having used a physiotherapist previously, I was recommended to try an Osteopath. Jo came highly recommended and did not disappoint. She is clearly very knowledgeable and identified the problem. Her treatment was excellent, she explained what she was doing and how it would affect my back and provided suitable exercises to complement this treatment.
I found Herts Osteopathy to be a professional and high quality service. The treatment I have received has helped me immensely with injuries I sustained in a car accident. I had seen several practitioners previously and I had lost hope that my injuries would get better. However, since seeing Jo I am in less pain and have increased movement and flexibility. I am also relying on prescription pain relief far less. Jo’s positive attitude and patience in explaining to me clearly what she is doing has helped me to believe that I will fully recover and understand how my body is responding to treatment. I strongly recommend Herts Osteopathy for a friendly and professional service that is excellent value for money.

Can’t recommend them highly enough. Jo saved me when I ‘popped’ my ribs out……. Honestly it was the worst pain I have evr experienced and my Dr had tried fobbing me off with drugs. At 10pm on a Friday night Jo booked me in to see her for the following morning and within minutes of seeing her I could move again – she’s amazing!

I wanted to express my thanks and appreciation for your help and treatment over the last few weeks. I am so lucky to have been seen to by you – I was struck by your confidence, accurate diagnosis and ability to put me at ease. Many thanks.
Hayley is doing a great job – she’s really helped me enormously, as did Rebecca. I couldn’t be happier with the help and support I’ve received from the whole team. Thank you.
It was recommended that I try Pilates when experiencing back problems after having my two children, I met Jo & haven’t looked back! My weekly sessions with Jo have improved my posture and I consider much more how I lift, sit & stand. I am so much happier with my level of fitness & body tone.
I have MS and have been seeing Jo for nearly a year for one to one pilates sessions on a weekly basis. I have had experienced great benefits from it. My core stability has improved no end. I have very few falls now (if any), my gait has vastly improved and I feel much more stable. I find myself using my stick less and less at work and generally feel more confident whilst walking.

I just want to give a shout out to Herts Osteopathy. After having two babies in two years I thought my body was simply knackered but they got me back on track and I’m so glad I saw them…… They did wonders for me in just a couple of sessions and they’re not expensive. Give yourselves some TLC! Hayley is the bee’s knees!
