Anne Wilde Osteopath & Practice Principal
Anne Wilde, BSc(Hons) Osteopathy, MSSCO
Anne graduated from Oxford Brookes University in 2004 with a BSc (Hons) Ost and has been working in this practice for over 14 years. Whilst still a structural osteopath, she has continued study in paediatric and cranial sacral osteopathy with the Sutherland Cranial College and bio dynamics - which aims to offer treatment and support to the patients health to allow them to move out of difficult and painful positions.
She is qualified in Western acupuncture which she uses alongside Osteopathic treatment.
She has also trained in Visceral Manipulation with the Barral Institute. This is suitable for all ages and is an integrative approach that assesses and treats the relationships between the viscera and connective tissue, which can result from surgical scarring, adhesions, illness, posture or injury.
Mary Boyle Osteopath
Mary qualified as an Osteopath from the Staffordshire University/ College of Osteopaths with a BSc (Hons) in Osteopathy in 2018. She also holds a BSc (Hons) in Radiography. She works part-time in a personal training and therapy clinic, where she treats sports people as well as members of the public with injuries and chronic physical conditions. In addition, she works part-time as a Senior Radiographer with a specialism in Breast Imaging and Breast Procedures. This involves working on the National Breast Screening Programme and dealing with women (and some men) who present with breast symptoms, in the symptomatic clinics. She enjoys this work very much and there are many transferable skills such as patient care, professionalism, and anatomical expertise which she brings to Osteopathy. She has training in image interpretation and would be happy to look at your x-rays or scans for you.
Her hobbies include running and is a member of the Spectrum Striders running club and treats many of her fellow runners and advises them on their various sports injuries. When she lived closer to London, she was part of the St. John Ambulance team treating London marathon runners. One day she may run it herself, though 10 km is the longest she has run so far. She also enjoys singing and is a member of her church Choir.

Harmeet Johal Osteopath
I graduated in 2020 with a B Ost (Hons) in Osteopathy. I enjoy helping individuals of all ages, who may be suffering with sports injuries, work place injuries, postural problems and other aches and pains. My main goal is to help you, as an individual, to understand what may be causing your pain, and what can be done to help you get back to health.
In a former life I was a primary school teacher, contemporary dance teacher and also a contemporary dancer! I've been lucky enough to dance, and lead groups who've danced in lots of local and national venues such as the Birmingham Hippodrome, the formerly known Millenium dome and The Regent theatre to name but a few. It was through dance and running injuries that I discovered osteopathy.
When I am not working, I spend time doing everything that my 2 year old little girl tells me to!
I do also a keen interest in running, hiking and playing basketball.
