David is reliable, thorough, attentive and - clearly- an exceptionally knowledgeable osteopath. He works intuitively, with real sensitivity and is able to advise on many different aspects of lifestyle which might affect bodily health. He helped me solve my back problems really effectively and compassionately. After repeat visits and the really quite incredible results, I trust him implicitly - and would recommend him to absolutely anyone.
