What to expect

The clinic has three treatment rooms and a waiting area. It is fully disabled accessible.

The first appointment will usually take about an hour, and follow up appointments approximately 45 minutes.

At a first appointment, we gather personal details, a history of the problem and of the person as a whole. For a baby or child this will include details of the pregnancy and birth.

We ask for details of medical history, past accidents, operations, illnesses and dental work so that we have a comprehensive understanding of what has happened.

A typical examination will include a combination of movement, orthopaedic and neurological tests and palpation (gentle touch).

You may be required to undress to your underwear if necessary for examinination or treatment. You can bring suitable clothing to cover yourself with if you wish. We are no longer able to provide privacy gowns or towels or blankets. You are welcome to bring a chaperone with you to be present at your session, but they will need to be screened prior to coming into the clinic (as are patients), and must attend to the COVID risk reduction measures.

Your practitioner will explain your diagnosis in simple terms, and advise you of an appropriate treatment plan. Then with your agreement some treatment is typically done on this first visit.

Treatments can be tiring and you should not expect to participate in vigorous activity for up to 48 hours aftewards. Babies and children may also be unsettled for up to 24 hours.

Following a breech caesarean birth, Max developed a tendency to turn his head to one side, and he developed a visibly flattened side of head. We were fortunate enough to know Steve's expertise in paediatric osteopathy and it was clear to see how passionate and informed he was regarding treatments and possible outcomes. Throughout the non-invasive treatment we felt totally at ease with Steve, as did Max who fell asleep! I would highly recommend Steve. We are extremely grateful for his time, care and attention to detail.

I rate Stephen very highly and would recommend him to anyone.

Lara’s thoughtful, gentle, confident and knowledgeable approach results in the most expert therapeutic massage one could hope to receive. The outcome is therefore a very holistic one in which specific discomforts have been eased with and overall relaxation achieved at the same time.

Stephen has been my osteopath for many years and has helped me recover from several serious operations. The atmosphere in the clinic is so calm and relaxing, and Stephen is an absolute professional in everything he does. He truly has healing hands.

Having suffered from a shoulder injury since last September and following unsuccessful physio, I decided to try SW19 Osteopath and Yan-Kei has been amazing. Not only has my mobility greatly improved as has my posture and knee pain, I am no longer in pain. Amazing at how effective this has been for me in such a short period of time, and I now am able to return back to sports. Yan-Kei explains what she is doing and definitely is invested in my well-being and although I am so much better, I will make this as part of my self care and ensure that I visit her every 5 – 6 weeks to re-balance myself. I highly recommend Yan-Kei; I truly feel she has worked wonders for me.

Maria, Colliers Wood

Charley worked wonders with my back after it had seized up after carrying and giving birth to my daughter. She did a thorough assessment of the (multiple!) problems and worked her magic within a couple of sessions. I wouldn't hesitate to return to Charley for any future problems. Thank you

Cecily, Tooting

I've been visiting the practice since February and have been seen by Yan-Kei. I'm just writing to leave a brief review of the practice and of her. The treatment I have received from Yan-Kei has benefited me greatly and I am improved in all aspects of life. I would recommend this treatment to anyone who feels any sense of discomfort and seeks to change their life for the better. Look forward to my next visit

I saw Yan-Kei Man following a musculoskeletal injury, which she helped me treat. Impressed with Yan-Kei's professionalism and attentiveness, I have since introduced my young kids (3 and 5 years old) to osteopathy. In hindsight, a wise decision given that a scooter accident had left my 5 year old with a slight postural dysfunction. I thoroughly recommend Yan-Kei for her specialisation and impeccable manners.

I am just e-mailing you Stephen to let you know that my baby daughter’s tight tummy calmed down considerably after your treatment so thank you very much.

I have had several treatments with Steve over the years for neck pain, back pain and under active thyroid. Steve has natural healing hands as well as a bank of experience and knowledge, which enhance his effectiveness. He is a very skilled practitioner both sensitive and subtle with powerful results; I have completely recovered from these conditions.
