Coronavirus and Bramhall Osteopathic Practice


The practice reopened on 15 June 2020 after a three month lockdown – initially running a very reduced appointment timetable. Since we have fully reopened and remained so through the next two lockdowns. We continue to offer a very covid safe environment to patients and practitioners alike.

We now have full day reception cover, but if for any reason no-one can answer your call, please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

The therapies available at present are – osteopathy, acupuncture, pelvic health physiotherapy, pilates, therapeutic massage and reflexology.  Hopefully the talking therapies will be able to rejoin us at a later date.


Initially, we will be running a reduced timetable of osteopathic appointments with fewer hours covered by reception, so please use the answering machine to leave us a message if no-one is available to answer the phone immediately.  We will get back to you ASAP.

There will only be one treatment room in use initially and only one patient at a time in the building.  If you wait in your car we will call you in when the room is ready for you. 


To make the practice easier to sanitise, we have replaced some chairs, recovered some and recovered the treatment tables in vinyl and changed some flooring.  All making it easy to wipe down and clean.

Treatment tables, chairs, touchable surfaces will all be disinfected after each patient.

The toilet will be available, but we would recommend going before you come.  The bathroom will be sanitised after any use.


Your osteopath will be wearing a face mask and plastic apron and will either wear gloves or carry out an extensive hand sanitising routine.

You are welcome to bring your own mask.


The day before you attend the practice we will phone you to ask a few health questions and as you arrive your temperature will be taken and you will be asked to either gel your hands or wash them.

Essentially these are small changes and hopefully you will find the practice a welcoming and safe place to be.

We would ask that you don’t bring anyone with you and also to bring the minimum of items with you, phone, purse and keys only if possible.

It will be lovely to be back and a great privilege to be able to help you all again.

Lead Osteopath


The health questions that will be asked will include:-

  • Do you have a cough?
  • Do you have a temperature?
  • Have you recently had coronavirus or has anyone in your household?
  • Are you in the high risk/clinically vulnerable group? (will have had a letter from the NHS)
  • Have you recently been abroad?
  • Any changes in taste and smell?
  • Are you shielding?
  • Are you happy for us to pass on your details to track and trace if any case of corona virus related to you occurs?

If you develop coronavirus symptoms in the next few days after your treatment, it is very important that you contact us and let us know.

All measures we have taken have been made from guidance from our governing body and professional institutions, Public Health England and these will be updated as the situation evolves.


We can treat face to face in various situations now.

If you have pain, worsening symptoms, disruption of daily life and work, sleep etc or if you are a maintenance patient who comes regularly to prevent acute flare ups, if you need urgent help e.g. a condition that is worsening or there are concerns over serious/sinister causes, or if you would need help from the already overloaded NHS if we didn’t treat you.     

The practice attracts patients from near and far afield including locally… from East Cheshire (Bramhall, Stockport, Hazel Grove, Gatley, Heald Green, Cheadle, Cheadle Hulme, Cheadle Heath, Poynton, Bollington, Macclesfield, Wilmslow, Handforth, Alderley Edge, Knutsford, Bowden, Hale, Altrincham), South Manchester (Didsbury, Chorlton, Sale) and Derbyshire (Disley, New Mills, Whaley Bridge), reaching to the North and South of England and abroad!
