What Our Patients Say

  • I have been to see both Emma and Steve on numerous occasions over the past few years. I have suffered from back pain for many years and after having two children and attempting to get back into exercise it became very painful. The treatment I received has meant that I no longer struggle to walk in the mornings and I am able to run again. I also know that if it flares up I can see either Emma or Steve, very promptly to get things back in line again. I can’t recommend more highly. Emma and Steve have always been incredibly professional and made me feel at ease at all times.

  • Emma at Tide End Osteopaths has treated me for neck, back and shoulder pain. She has sorted me out every time using massage and acupuncture. I’d never had acupuncture before and it’s surprisingly effective. Wonderful to be pain free again. Emma has a friendly and professional manner too. No hesitation in recommending this practice.
