Due to advancement and severity of Covid-19 it is with great sadness that we have made the decision to temporarily close the Osteopathic Clinic. We would like to thank all of our loyal patients for their kindness, support and understanding at this difficult time. We hope that we see you all very soon.
It was an incredibly difficult decision for us to make, but the wellbeing of our patients is of paramount importance, and we believe the best way to keep you safe is to close. We feel we cannot fully adhere to the guidelines the government has put in place to try and prevent the spread of this virus, so it would be irresponsible of us to continue face to face appointments.
We will continue to keep you updated on here and will still be contactable via email and by phone. Our voicemail will be on the phone if we cannot answer immediately. We don’t want our patients to feel we have disappeared, we are still here and will do all we can to support you. For anyone that has an appointment over the next coming weeks, we will be in touch.
We all need to do what we can to help stop the spread of this virus, so please follow the government guidelines and listen to the facts so that this is over as soon as it can be and we can all go back to normal. Please keep safe and we look forward to seeing you on the other side.

Susan Brazier Osteopath
My name is Sue Brazier, I qualified in June 1998 at The College of Osteopaths. I worked in osteopathic practices in Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire before moving to Worcestershire at the end of 1998. I worked at The South Bank Hospital for a couple of years before opening the clinic in Callow End in 2002. I went to an Osteopath in my 20’s and the treatment helped alleviate my pain, I wanted to know more about Osteopathy but it took a few more years before I was able to attend college and learn the art of Osteopathy.
Osteopathy includes Cranial and Structural assessment and treatment. I also attended a course in Acupuncture, which is another therapy to use alongside Osteopathy.
When you first attend the clinic we take a very thorough case history, asking you questions about your general health as well as your reason for attending.
Susan Brazier Osteopath (Cont.)
We may ask you to undress to your underwear so that we can see your spine and assess movement and the spines curvature. We will talk you through how we progress, treatment, exercises and self help. If we need to refer you on to another health professional we will discuss why and help with that referral.
The clinic has an excellent massage therapist, Simon Griffiths. Regular massage ensures that small injuries are treated before they reduce sporting performance and stiff, tight muscles treated before compensatory mechanisms take place.
Osteopathy May Help With:
Sports injuries, back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain, sciatic pain, hip pain, knee and ankle pain, muscle pain, joint pain, arthritic pain, repetitive strain injuries, poor posture
We are Registered!
Our Osteopaths are registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). Osteopaths are required to renew their registration every year and the GOsC provides our licence to practice.
As part of this process the GOsC checks that osteopaths have current professional indemnity insurance, remain in good health and of good character, and have met mandatory continuing professional development requirements. It is against the law for anyone to call themselves an osteopath unless they are registered with the GOsC. We can also be found on the Institute of Osteopathy website.
