Video consultations allow us to offer a range of the treatments available during your face-to-face session, without the need for travel or any contact. We have had great success with conducting consultations via video-link.

If you are unsure of how this would work or need assistance in setting up, please do get in touch and our team would be happy to talk you through it.
Benefits of video consultations
While we will always seek to offer face-to-face consultations, current research suggests that the outcome measures from video consultations are the same as face-to-face consultations, and patient satisfaction is comparable.
There are several benefits to taking sessions online: you won’t need to factor in travel time, we can fit appointments in around your schedule, and if you’re working from home, we can assess your home-working station via video call and ensure you’re set up correctly.
Please note osteopathy video consultations are covered by major healthcare insurance providers.
Work from home the healthy way
If you’re working from home or self-isolating, it’s important to consider your health and wellbeing during changes to your routine. It can be easy to slip into unhelpful habits – like working from bed or the sofa – that could cause problems long-term. We can support you during the next few months, ensuring that any treatment plans stay on-track, that you’re keeping active even if staying indoors, and that spending more time at home doesn’t impact your musculoskeletal or overall health.
How does an online consultation work?
We’ve put together a couple of short videos to give you an idea of how an online consultation works.
