from newborns through to old age
SUITABLE FOR ALL AGES
Gentle techniques work to give lasting relief from pain, improving everyday activities and enhancing performance in sport and creative arts.
Ben Colyer works at the gentle end of the osteopathic spectrum often using cranial osteopathy and similar techniques as a safe and effective alternative to joint manipulation. He has fifteen years experience and trained at the British School of Osteopathy and the Osteopathic Centre for Children.
People with sensitive systems, often find they have no negative treatment reactions with this type of osteopathy.
Many people who come to see Ben are relieved to find that there is very little pulling and pushing and yet their pain resolves leaving them feeling better and looser than they have done in a long while.
APPOINTMENTS AND COVID-19
I am continuing to work with existing clients, and I can take on new clients. The exceptions to staying at home include ‘for any medical concerns, reasons, appointments and emergencies’. This accords with my professional body’s current advice that as long as I am conducting appointments under appropriate PPE conditions I can continue to work.
On arrival hand sanitizer is provided and both patient and osteopath wear masks. Windows are kept open during the treatment. Patients are asked to bring their own pillow and blanket if needed.
In appointments for children, the parents wear a mask and the child only if old enough to do so. Parents are asked to bring toys to entertain children with, as toys are no longer kept in the Henley practice.
Ben is a skilled and intuitive osteopath with a sensitive approach to his clients and a focussed approach to his work. I am amazed at how much he can perceive through his light touch treatment and how effective the results can be.
Having tried various things we were at a loss as to how we could relieve our Son’s hearing and breathing problems with sleepless nights, until an acquaintance mentioned Ben Colyer. We called Ben and after a very friendly and informal consultation suggested a course of action on which we agreed.
The course was a success in both bringing our Son’s hearing back to normal levels and allowing him to breath again through his nose after two years of suffering. It also meant he didn’t have to have surgery and got the all clear by the hospital. It was a great relief to our 5-year old, and a lot less sleepless nights for us. It also meant he didn’t have to have surgery and got the all clear by the hospital. We would happily recommend this drug-free remedy to other parents whose children are suffering from ENT related problems.
Both my children have had cranial osteopathy sessions with Ben Colyer. My son was treated at around 18 months for persistant night waking and crying, as we suspected from his behavior he was uncomfortable in some way. My daughter was treated at 6 weeks old as she was a fretful baby, paritcularly in the evenings and was very difficult to settle. His quiet and patient approach put the children at ease and a significant improvement was noted in both cases. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ben.
I have been receiving treatment from Ben for tension headaches. The treatment I received has been very helpful. My problem is now much improved. I found Ben very friendly and understanding and will always consult him in the future when needed.
