Testimonials

 

"Thank you so much for helping me Michelle! Having spent years coping with regular bad headaches of which no painkillers relieved and to the point of feeling like doing nothing apart from sleeping them off, in just one visit you found and solved the issue!  Since then and a couple of checkups later I have had hardly any headaches and none as bad as they were before.  I really can't thank you enough (and nor can my husband!), and I wish you all the best in your future helping to heal people."

Jessica from Hereford - May 2018

 


 

"I brought my daughter Philippa in to see Michelle for treatment regarding digestive problems. Since having just 1 session her digestive issues stopped immediately. I don't know how it worked but it did and for that I'm very grateful, thank you Michelle!"

"Hi Michelle, just to report that Stanley fell asleep in the car after his appointment this morning and stayed asleep for an hour and a half! He has been singing and chatting to himself happily over lunch and is just being generally delightful. Thank you for transforming his behavior once again."

"Dear Michelle Thank you so much for my treatment in early December. I came to see you, with a lot of soreness in my neck and shoulders.
You quickly diagnosed that the cause was mainly due to a repetitive injury, after a very physically tough day in my workplace.
Your gentle manipulation, together with a deeper remedial massage on my upper back was exactly what I needed!
During the next few days, I felt so relaxed that now and again, I even fell asleep during the day, as well as having a quality night time sleep.
This allowed my body to heal itself naturally, your treatment was wonderful (as always)."
Thank You Michelle! Paul from Kidderminster 2017

 


 

"Michelle is wonder woman in disguise!
Calling herself an 'Osteopath' just doesn't do her justice. Recommended by a friend who said they would 'drive through the night to see Michelle if they had to' I wondered what was so special.
She heals people from the inside out with just her touch, putting all the pieces of the 'puzzle' back together again. I wouldn't trust anyone else in treating my precious baby boy, I know he is in the safest, healing hands and he always leaves with a smile so I know he is happier for it.

I can't tell enough people how fantastic she is, everyone needs an 'Osteopath' like Michelle in their lives.

...all Michelle needs now is a cape and she would be unstoppable!"

"I had to wake Alfie at 4.30pm yesterday after more than two hours of sleeping. He then slept through and had to be woken this morning. Clearly a much more comfortable boy! :)

Thank you for working your magic. Look forward to seeing you with two small people in a few weeks.

Thanks again,"

"You have helped me in many different ways, the treatment I have received and the way you help me to think differently in some situations. When I do start to struggle in some situations I just think to myself there's a way in and there is also a way out.
Since I have been coming to you I have been places that I never thought I'd ever get to again, just little things in life seemed like a massive task but now I can go swimming, I can eat in a restaurant, I can go to the gym, I have even started playing football again."

"Hello Michelle
just to let you know my ITB and I are fantastic!  I went for a short run last Monday as we discussed and felt good - much better than I was expecting. The inflammation went down surprisingly quickly after treatment. On the first run, my "unaffected" leg got a bit tired and the affected leg at the ITB insertion point felt "unusual" (a slight burning sensation but not unpleasant).  I ran a twice more during the week without any pain or even twinges. Yesterday I ran 5km, and again no issues at all.  In fact I feel much more balanced when I run now. I do repeat the mantra (ease and comfort) which reminds me to focus on stride, rhythm and running upright, but I am not "heaving" myself around quite as much, despite the fact that I am not quite back to the aerobic capacity I had at Christmas. Even stretching my ITB is more comfortable - I don't get the nerve pain as much and can actually feel the stretch properly. 
I have been working on my gluts etc, doing the exercises everyday and can tell there is a difference there as well. 
 
So fabulous outcome Michelle, thank you."

"Hi Michelle,

Hope you're well. I just wanted to say thank you for squeezing us in on Tuesday. The treatment has worked amazingly and Tom is back to his lovely self, rather than stressed and angry self! Thanks so much and we'll see you again soon."

Best Wishes,

"After suffering intense neck pain for several months and mild shoulder pain for years I finally decided to seek help. As Michelle came highly recommended I made an appointment. Well... What can I say? I was not disappointed. Michelle is professional, knowledgeable and excellent at what she does. On my initial consultation Michelle made me feel comfortable, explained in detail what what was wrong with my neck and why it was causing me discomfort. After the initial consultation, I could already feel a huge improvement. Now, after only 3 appointments I am pain free and smiling again. For anyone looking for a very good osteopath, I highly recommend this lovely lady".

Isaac's reflux is much much better since you saw him last, so thank you! He's been poorly recently though and his head is quite badly tilting again, so I presume the crick in his neck has returned. His flat spot got better too.
Many thanks

I had a nasty fall at work about 2 1/2 years ago fracturing a vertebrae in the top of my back and causing severe whiplash. Over the last 2 years I have suffered with constant discomfort and stiffness leading to prolonged periods of pain. Over this time I have tried everything imaginable to try and resolve the problem visiting NHS physios, private physios, chiropractor, pain management injections, but nothing helped. I had pretty much given up, I resigned myself to thinking that this was it now and I'm going to have to put up with this for good but a friend recommended Michelle to me and I haven't looked back since. After a couple of sessions I started to feel a huge difference, after I had reached 4 sessions I can honestly say the pain had all but gone. A couple of sessions later I experienced something that I hadn't done for so long......NO PAIN! The pain and stiffness has gone completely, my neck and shoulders now feel like they belong to me again! My wife is now visiting Michelle after experiencing problems with her upper back after 2 pregnancies and she too is experiencing huge improvements after no success with physiotherapy. Thanks Michelle!
Chris Bedford

 
Dear Michelle,
May I just put on record how much I have benefited from your excellent hands on treatment for my neck & shoulder problem from a historic whiplash injury (at least 30yrs ago).
My six weekly visits to you relieve the otherwise continuous ache factor considerably with your massage & manipulation expertise & I do considerably gain from every visit.

Yours Truly, Don Gill.

 

Hi Michelle
Please find a note of my experience:
I do not really know what caused me to suffer with hip pain, but it started about two years ago with radiating pain down my legs, which I initially thought was sciatica.
My doctor referred me for physiotherapy which improved things for a while.
However, after another flare up my doctor referred me to Mr Aslam who felt it would be sensible to have an MRI scan to have a proper look to see what was going on.
The scan confirmed that there was nothing surgical that needed to be done and so Mr Aslam referred me to Michelle Davies for osteopathy.
Michelle very quickly discovered that my pelvic bones were out of alignment putting a strain not only on the joints but also on the surrounding muscles.
My first treatment with Michelle was a revelation because I left the treatment room feeling better than I had for some time.
I had several treatments close together and was also given strengthening exercises to do as well.
I am now at the point where I only need quarterly maintenance treatments which is great.
I believe that Michelle has magic hands! as so much can be achieved by "apparently doing so little"!!
Thank you very much for a brilliant result from a lovely lady who works in a very caring and reassuring way – and thanks to Mr Aslam for his initial referral.

"I saw Michelle having struggled for many months with anxiety and occasional panic attacks.  I came to an appointment without any expectations having tried other avenues to ease my anxiety without success.  After one treatment of Cranial Osteopathy I had almost all of my symptoms relieved as Michelle discovered a blockage at the back of my neck which I was completely unaware of.  The treatment was gentle but extremely effective and I cannot recommend her more highly.  My life has completely changed now I am free of anxiety and I would suggest anyone with similar symptoms should come to Michelle to see if her methods also work for them."Sally R.

" I originally brought my 2 month old son to see Michelle for torticolis in his neck. I began telling Michelle about my 2 year old and the difficulties we were having with him. Oliver had always been a lively child, but his energy levels had become excessive, his behaviour was becoming difficult to manage. Oliver struggled to understand what was being asked of him,even in the simplest of terms. He was frustrated, aggressive and chaotic. He had become quite isolated from other children as he struggled to relate and communicate with them. Paediatricians became involved with Oliver after huge concerns became flagged up in his 2 and a half year check. I had always felt something was not right and hoped the medical profession would identify what was going on. Almost immediately they believed he was showing signs of autism  and adhd. As Oliver's parent, this didn't sit right with me. Michelle agreed this was a massive statement to make on a child so young. "Let me see if I can help" Michelle said. So this was how it began, the start of the highest change I had seen in my boy. Michelle began by assessing Oliver, straight away she identified a problem with his left ear. This was not linked to hearing but more to how his brain was interpreting what was being heard. Michelle began freeing up this blockage. After this first session I began to see a small change,Oliver seemed calmer, happier.  After his next few sessions the changes became immense. He started to calm down, he began interacting with adults initially, making conversations. Slowly over time Oliver has transformed, he has made friendships with other children, he is beginning to understand the world around him. Finally everyone else could start to see the little boy we always knew was there. Without seeing Michelle I don't know where we would be now, she has transformed Oliver's life and has saved us from going down a dark route and a misdiagnosis,which would have changed all of our lives. 
We continue to work with Michelle,and we continue to see improvements all the time. We finally have a clear idea of what is holding Oliver back and with Michelle's guidance how to move forward with him. 
I would recommend Michelle unreservedly."

I had been suffereing from back, buttock,thigh and knee pain....I was very pleased and surprised how quickly the treatment improved my condition. After only two sessions I could stop taking painkillers. I was given stretching exercises to do and my condition continued to improve. A friend had recommended Michelle to me and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to other people.

Thank you so much for helping my Mum with her knee operation yesterday. She is already walking around and seems a lot happier. Michelle Davies has really helped Mum as well with the Osteopath treatment and more importantly the positive attitude. I do believe that Mum had started to focus on pain so much that it was making everything much worse....
 

Michelle. February 2014


My problem was a swollen and painful ankle; Michelle Davies suggested she could help me. I made an appointment for assessment and treatment. After studying my X-rays she saw the severity of the arthritis, despite this she was still confident that she could help me.

Michelle diagnosed that I was suffering from two sources of pain, the general ache from the arthritis and the very much more acute painfrom the surrounding tissue. It was the tissue and the muscle pain on which she worked.

I have now had four treatments with each one improving the condition. Now that I no longer experience the acute pain the intention is to keep extending the time between treatments.

Michelle strongly believes in the power of the mind to help the healing process and she encouraged me to adopt the same attitude.

Michelle I am very grateful.

For the past eighteen months I had been suffering with a migraine variant disorder. This presented as continuous pain in my neck and shoulder, between two and ten migraine headaches per month and various other symptoms including numbness, tiredness and tremors. To be able to function as a wife, mum and midwife I was dependant on a cocktail of strong prescription mediacation. Unfortunately dealing with the side effects that these medications bought.

I began to consider a more holistic approach to my problems but I didn't know where to start. That's when I started talking to Michelle who spent time listening to my history and offered a possible alternative to my current symptoms. However before I even commenced treatment Michelle worked with me on positive thinking.

The combination of the osteopathy and using positive affirmations everyday have been miraculous. After just three treatments I was able to stop taking my prescription medications and have had no migraine flare ups since I have started seeing Michelle. The results have changed my life and my mindset!

I cannot thank Michelle enough

Cassie Taft. August 2013


The day that I first called at Michelle's practice I was in pain,tired and down. The heaviness in my shoulders made every day difficult. Taking medication is not for me and so I decided to try an alternative treatment and it was the best choice I ever made. When I met Michelle for my first visit she assured me that after a very short while I would feel an improvement and that she would have me feeling better than I had in years. I have to admit that I was sceptical that it could be that easy but I shouldn't have been! After only four treatments I am indeed feeling better than I have in a long time, I am back to my old self and pain free.

I would recommend this treatment to anyone. Michelle is patient and supportive and explains all aspects of the treatment in detail. The supporting exercises are easy to complete and take just a few minutes a day.

I am certainly glad that I rang Michelle that day and not the GP surgery.

Lorraine July 2013


 I had paid out hundreds of pounds at a local chiropractor and actually felt worse than when I had begun treatment. I was referred to Michelle by a lady I work with and was very sceptical about the treatment. I told Michelle about the problems I had been experiencing and with gentle manipulation and know how she told me I had been suffering whiplash for the last 30 years following a car crash! Again I was very sceptical about this and also the fact that she told me I was now much better. The next day though I can honestly say I felt as though I was 'walking on air'. What a difference it made.I also like the fact I only need to see Michelle occasionally for 'maintenance@ rather than the regular and expensive visits to the chiropractor.

Carol Haigh .June 2013.


Michelle just a quick note to thank you for all your fine work with myself and my two young children. Before the treatment you administered to my children it is fair to say they struggled with ear infections, eating and most important of all their sleeping patterns. With your help they both seem to be eating and sleeping much better and Charlies ear infections of which he had many seem to have abated .All  round their wellbeing is much improved and they are much happier in themselves. As my wife still breastfeeds during the night it is really important that she gets a good period of sleep and I know this has improved since you have worked on Jessica so a big thumbs up there. As I am your typical bloke I probably wouldn’t have come to see you for my problem with my neck if I hadn’t seen the results of your treatment first hand . As you know  I had quite bad neck pain which was leading to severe headaches which in turn was severely affecting my ability to relax and wind down. Sleeping has also been a big problem for me for as long as I can remember surviving on maybe four to five hours a night if I am lucky . However since I have been receiving treatment the problems I was experiencing are much improved. Movement in my neck is greater the headaches have gone and I now find it much easier to wind down , I even get a good seven to eight hours every night. The only problem now is my wife says I cant hear Jessica when she wakes in the night and she has to get up all the time so you might have done your job too good. Anyway thanks for all your great work with me and my family I really appreciate it and if anybody should read this letter let me assure you if you or any member of your family have a problem give Michelle a try the woman is a miracle worker.

I had 3 treatments with Michelle over 3 weeks, and when I first saw her, my neck was completely locked. After her Manipulations, this was greatly eased. My initial visit was to help with persistent headaches, which I now realise was caused by stress at work. After the 2nd treatment, again on my neck and also stiffness in my back, there were rapid improvements, and the headaches finally began to subside. My 3rd treatment with Michelle included strengthening massage, which was a great help to me. She also explained to me about using positive thinking/emotional behaviour techniques, which again was a great help.

During this time, I was off work, but I am now happily back to work and feeling much more positive, and my whole body feels strong. I am now going to the gym and playing football again.

Since our last visit Monty's sleep has improved dramatically, he is sleeping from 7pm - 6am everyday straight through and sometimes with a bit of encouragement he will sleep past 7am!  He has become more relaxed and far easier to settle at night, choosing to go to bed, lie down and go to sleep.  His tantrums have settled to and only really stamps his feet when there is something he is trying to say like no I dont want to do that.  He still talks in his sleep and shouts out but this only disturbs me and not him.  He also doesn't seem to be breathing through his mouth anymore and has become a quieter sleeper which makes mummy and daddy have to check him more closely to make sure he is still breathing and despite being ill this week this hasn't disturbed him either just waking a bit before 6 instead.
 
Overall we are very pleased with the results and have recommended you and the treatment to everyone we know.  We will certainly be keeping you in mind when baby number 2 comes along and will probably get him booked in quicker than Monty, so I guess we shall probably see you in about August!
 
Anyway a massive thank you again

I had suffered shoulder and back pain for many years and thought it was part of the process of getting older. After just two treatments I am free of constant shoulder pain and mobility in my shoulder has greatly increased.

Jean Davies. Malvern. December 2011


I came to see Michelle on 20th October 2011 with my 7 month old baby girl. She suffered with sickness, reflux, wind and woke frequently in the night.

After only one treatment Michelle found restriction in her neck and pelvis. This was irritating her nerves and made her very congested. Michelle worked on my daughter and the results were amazing:

She had a massive decrease in her sickness and is now hardly sick at all.

Her reflux appears to have gone. She is not in pain anymore.

50% improvement in her wind. She now brings up her own wind easily rather than me having to wind her fo 10 - 15 minutes after a bottle.

Her feeding (bottle and food) is far more efficient.

I would highly recommend that you come to see Michelle. Josie is 7 months old and I thought that I may be to late and she was too old. She has been so much better and this is the best thing I could have done for her

 I have been suffering with a painful hip for four years which the Doctor told me was arthritis and I was to take painkillers. Upon recommendation I visited Michelle Davies and after only three visits I was pain free.

Maureen Atkins. Worcester September 2011.


I visited Michelle for coccyx pain which I had suffered with for three months. It was significantly better after just one treatment and almost completely gone after two.

Michelle completely put me at ease and gave clear explanations and great advice. Thanks Michelle.
 
Shelley Young. Worcester September 2011 

 

Having suffered for 7 years with severe migraines, I tried all sorts of medical and homeopathic treatments, then my physio recommended I see an Osteopath and after ONE session with Michelle (who immediately felt a whiplash injury I received 7 years ago!) ..... months later .... I haven't suffered one migraine!!! I feel like a new person!!!

Jodie. Worceser 2011


We are so glad that we brought Joseph to see you. After the first session you sorted out two problems we were experiencing without us even mentioning them to you.

 Joseph came to you to have Cranial Osteopathy as he was not sleeping well in the day and he was also a very light sleeper. After just one session he has already started to sleep for longer periods and we can move him whilst he is asleep which is a vast improvement - obviously with a few more sessions we hope this will continue to improve.

You found immediately that the route of his problems was that he was unable to tilt his head back or to the sides. This meant that he was constantly tense and was therefore unable to relax enough to sleep deeply. By correcting this it also immediately helped me with breastfeeding Joseph. We had been struggling with his latching on and once his head had been freed ,so it could tilt back, he was suddenly opening wide like he should and feeding so much better.

The other immediate change was to Joseph's eye. He had a gooey eye since birth and we were constantly washing it and even went to the Doctors. However, after one session you said his eye should improve and sure enough it has been perfect ever since, it was unbelievable!

We have been so impressed with everything you have done and thorougly recommend any parent to bring their child for Cranial Osteopathy, as you have helped us with even more than expected!

"I would like to express my sincere thanks for the treatment you have given me over the past few months...thank you again for your kindness and expertise - you really are a very special person"


Carol Jennings, Health Visitor


"I came to you one week ago with William, aged 5 months, mainly because he wasn't sleeping, even though I had done all the things to help him sleep.

I was almost relieved when you identified areas of stress in his head because it meant there was something you could do to help.

One week, and only one treatment, later, here are William's achievements:

  • he has slept through 6 out of 7 nights
  • when he did wake up he settled himself back to sleep
  • he woke up happy, not crying
  • he has had longer daytime naps and,
  • he is generally happier and doesn't seem so "weighed down" all the time.

I had heard of others having success with cranial osteopathy treatment but I could not have imagined the difference one treatment could make.

Thank you."

Lisa Morrison - July 2006

 


 

"Thank you for the cranial osteopathy you did on Adam, it has been wonderful.

His sleeping is better, we don't need to use his inhaler anymore, his behaviour has greatly improved, no more "head butting" and he is a lot calmer overall.

Thank you again. "

Tina, John and Adam

 


 

"I had recently given birth to my second child, a healthy baby boy. He was delivered by C-Section 9 days late. I wanted to breast feed just like I had with the first, but unfortunately he wouldn't latch on, every time I put him to the breast he became extremely agitated. It got to day four and still no luck. This is when I got in touch with Michelle Davies. She fit me in the same day and did a treatment on Felix. She found that he had left side restriction, and told us that it would have been difficult for him to feed. After the treatment I was advised to go home and try a feed.

When we got home I put him on the breast and he latched on with no trouble and then he just fell into a routine of feeding every 3 hours.

Michelle advised us that he would probably need another treatment. 4 weeks passed and I started to notice that in between feeds he was crying and wanted to be held more that usual, so I took him for another treatment. Felix was unsettled when the treatment started, and as soon as the pressure was released, his whole body relaxed and he went to sleep.

Michelle has helped solve a problem that might have continued for many more stressful and worrying weeks or months. At first I was unsure if it would work but we saw a complete change for the better in Felix and Oliver, our first child, that we now recommended all our friends with new born babies to go and to see her for a check-up."
