Osteopathy was founded in the late 1800s by physician and surgeon Andrew Taylor Still in Kirksville, Missouri. The son of a surgeon, Still soon discovered that in order to achieve the highest possible form of health, all parts of the body should work together harmoniously. His goal was to restore the body to optimum health with minimal surgery and medicine, influenced in part by the realisation that medical treatments of that time were largely ineffective and, in some cases, harmful. Over time, he treated patients with a wide range of conditions, from dysentery to sciatica and arthritis, with varying results he gained a reputation as an effective practitioner. In essence Osteopathy was a more holistic approach looking at the whole body and not specifically spinal focussed like chiropractic.
Just like Chiropractic, Osteopaths are degree qualified and are required to complete regular training to ensure they are able to offer the best and latest treatment methods to all patients.

Thank you for fixing my back after 6 months of working from home on a wooden kitchen chair! I’ve gone from having never seen a Chiropractor before to now making it a regular appointment.
It is due to a number of practitioners, now at the Health Hub, that my recovery from a serious injury was the successful. I cannot praise Jodie and Tina enough for their knowledge, advice and support in 2018, which expedited my recovery giving me the opportunityto continue pursuing my sporting hobbies. I am so thankful they continue to deliver their skills from a new base, which houses the best professionals in the area. I have often joked with Sam that I need a sports top saying ‘This body has been rebuilt and regularly serviced by The Health Hub’.
Highly recommend – Sam and Tina at the Health Hub have helped me enormously recently with a back problem and I have been so pleased with the results. Always a friendly smile and professional service at their practice
I had a great sports/therapeutic massage with Tina Towler today. This was exceptional and I used Sam for back issues in the past. The Health Hub is exceptional in decor and organisation. It was a really good vibe it there today with loads on street parking available just outside. Great experience, thank you for today. Lovely place to go to.
I see Sam (chiropractor) regularly and he offers a bespoke, caring open minded service. Not only is he highly skilled and professional but he is friendly and knowledgeable without judgement or up selling. Highly recommend. Ive also had a fantastic sports therapy massage from Tina and hope to book in for another soon. Gemma
Thoroughly recommend this place, I’ve had two massages by Tanya. Will defs be coming back. Very good massages. Thank you for providing this service during lockdown.
State of the art new practice, with fantastic treatment rooms and highly skilled staff. Sam Pargeter treated my back and has made a huge difference. Highly recommended.
What a friendly place! Even with covid restrictions in place, you are made to feel welcome the moment you walk in the door. Tanya provides a thorough deep massage, having taken time to check on my needs and well-being. Would highly recommend and will be going back
The staff are all lovely, kind and helpful. Lachlan is an excellent osteopath and sorts out my tense muscles and clicking out hip every time. A medical appointment to look forward to! Highly recommended
