I have been seeing Michelle for over 6 years now, visiting her initially for a bad back and pelvis, after seeing several different people I had reached the point of giving up hope. Within a few sessions with Michelle I was pain free. After moving up to Scotland I still made the journey to see Michelle and even now as I live in Switzerland I make my appointments with Michelle when I am back in the UK, and she is always as accommodating as possible even fitting me in on her days off. Her work is second to non and being a very active person with cycling and having a physical job she never fails to heal me both physically and mentally when needed. I couldn't recommend her enough. Thank you Michelle for your continued support and treatment. Kate Holzer
I contacted Michelle about pain in my lower back. This has been on and off for several years. How I wish we had been to see Michelle right in the beginning as I walked out pain free after the first session! I have found Michelle to be very kind and friendly, she dealt with me in a very calming and professional way. Not only did he get me pain free straight away, but also educated me about what had caused the pain and ways to look after my back and body. I highly recommend Michelle and would urge anyone in pain to make an appointment now! Parking is great and its easy to find and the clinic is a very welcoming place.

Michelle’s work is absolutely amazing. I had taken some heavy knocks to the head playing rugby and getting very strong headaches as a result. I wasn’t sure what to do and decided to go to Michelle. Her impressive skills had everything fixed after two appointments. I highly recommend using Michelle for relief from any discomforts in your body as her training and capabilities are outstanding and it’s a simple, quick process. Thanks Michelle ????

Walter has been markedly improved since his initial 15 minute appointment on Saturday, he is an extremely cheerful baby, yet Sunday he was happier than I think I have ever seen him in himself. He has had Improved sleep, only two/three wake ups which is so much improvement from waking half hourly to hourly (now getting 3-4 hour sleep stints) His cold seems to be coming out, the lump on his head seem to be reduced, bowel seems to be more lose and more regular, he seems apart from today happier in him self and sleeping more contently in the day for naps also. Look forward to seeing you for the follow up 15 minute appointment tomorrow Gemma January 2020
Hi Michelle, just to report that Stanley fell asleep in the car after his appt 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 behaviour once again.
Dear Michele, you are a miracle worker. David has returned home with a totally different mindset. Early days, I know, but huge thanks already. I will try to encourage the exercises.

When our daughter was eighteen months old she was suffering, and was being prescribed oral antibiotics at least once a month, which were ineffective and having a negative impact on her tummy. A friend suggested cranial osteopathy as a solution, recommending Michelle as someone who could help us. After the first treatment our daughter was a calmer and happier little girl and in the two years since has suffered no further infections.
More recently our daughter was struggling with sleep ; waking regularly each night and seeming uncomfortable. We again went to visit Michelle and after one visit our daughter was sleeping well and is a lot more refreshed and happy.
Michelle is friendly and professional, always ready to explain her work and how it is helping our daughter. We are very grateful that our friend recommended cranial osteopathy to us, as we were previously unaware of the benefits it has. We have suggested osteopathy as an alternative treatment to several other people.

I would thoroughly recommend Michelle Davies, in the treatment of muscular or body mechanics issues, including the tracing and healing of historic injuries.
Also, the ongoing care given is exceptional, which includes dealing and coping with stress problems.
Michelle would be an ideal person to consult, if any organisation needed a fitness for work report, for new and current staff.
In a previous job role, I have referred staff to Michelle, and she has made a significant difference in the reduction of employee sick leave, and contributed to staff retention.
In encouraging staff to look after themselves, not only for their well-being but to try and avoid illness and stress a number have found their way to see Michelle. Michelle’s gentle energy in fixing problems and encouragement to look at yourself holistically as well as make small but incremental changes to the way you work has been so well received by those treated. This has benefitted most of my staff and means she comes highly recommended by us all. She has fixed bits of us, realigned most of us, sorted long term issues and injuries and provided encouragement to do things right with our own bodies and practice self-care for our wellbeing!

I was referred to Michelle in 2009 whilst working at Worcestershire County Council. I was experiencing a significant amount of pain in my right neck/shoulder/arm and this was impacting on my ability to work - I couldn’t drive, or use a mouse or keyboard effectively. Michelle quickly diagnosed and treated the issue and I was able to resume normal activities within a number of weeks. It was therefore Michelle to whom I immediately turned when a similar issue occurred this year. Michelle has again diagnosed the issue and provided both hands-on treatment and advice on adapting my workstation to give me the best chance of making another full recovery. I highly recommend her advice and treatment.

I started a new job as a solicitor where the floor in my first floor office is uneven. My lower back pain gradually increased over the first 6 weeks and then I experienced periods of dizziness and nausea - particularly when lying down. The doctor diagnosed BPPV and ETD which he said was caused by fluid trapped behind my left ear drum probably from an ear infection (although apart from a sore ear for one day I wasn't aware I'd had an ear infection).
I had already made an appointment with Michelle for treatment for my lower back so I was very fortunate that she very quickly identified issues with my back and neck and she concluded that the fluid was not draining from my ear because of the issues with my neck which were almost certainly caused by the lower back problems from the uneven floor.
I had one treatment and felt significantly better and the improvement continued. I had a second treatment 10 days later. The vertigo problem as completely gone away.
This is not the first time that Michelle's treatments have helped me and my children recover from illnesses and pain.

Hope you're well. I thought I'd update you on Rowan sleep. Well it's improved massively! He now self settles really well and doesn't wake up half as much. He generally seems more settled at night. He still doesn't nap very well but I just think he's not much of a napper. Haha! He used to wake up between 3 and 7 times a night. Now it's between 1 and 2 even if he's teething or got a cold he'll be settled a lot more quickly than before. So it's been a massive improvement and I definitely think that osteopathy helped

Hi Michelle, It's Emma with an appointment for Wednesday morning. I'm texting to cancel as I will be a total fraud if I come! Ice and heat worked well then I have spent the last few days camping which I thought might challenge the injury but I am still fine and the residual stiffness has diminished. As you said I can cancel up to 24hrs ahead I will do so and allow someone with great need to take the slot. Thanks again for your magic advice. July 2018
Thanks so much for what you have done to help me. Almost excellent and enlightening.
Steve - February 2019
Upon my second visit to you I realized that there was far more going on than massaging painful back muscles. Gentle questions and genuine interest concerning my daily life led to an understanding of my well-being and the massage, albeit important was an accompaniment to the bigger picture of a more spiritual healing.
Thank you Steve
"As a new osteopathy patient I wasn't sure what to expect from my first visit. Michelle explained how she was going to explore my neck and shoulder problem. Within no time of feeling around my neck I was identified as having whiplash. A further period of gentle head and neck movement and I was treated. To my amazement my pain and restricted movement was gone! I don't understand how it works, its crazy but it has worked. I would certainly recommend Michelle. Her many years of Osteopathy experience have made her a real expert."

I approached Michelle because being a professional footballer I need to ensure my body is in the best possible shape. Over the years I have had many injuries and in my first session with Michelle she was able to pinpoint all of them – old and new.
My neck was not in a good way, from heading the ball – Michelle described it as severe whiplash, I had restricted movement to the one way and constant aching. It wasn't until after a few sessions I realised just how bad it was because the aching disappeared and my movement improved significantly.
She also worked on my ankles, they were swollen and stiff with lack of movement. And after a few sessions with Michelle and her magic hands I could see and feel a big difference.
Michelle was always very professional in a friendly manor, I always felt comfortable and relaxed around her. I have faith in knowing she will always be able to assist my body to heal and highly recommend her.

After enduring a ongoing back problem for 18 months to 2 years I eventually decided to do something about it, this decision was also cemented after experiencing falling quite heavily on my bottom! I was recommended to book an appointment with Michelle (osteopath) I went along for an initial assessment on wed 15th August to The Bromyard clinic. Michelle spent less than an hour manipulating my back,the results were amazing! I left the practice and walked the short distance back to where I'd parked, the transformation bordering on miraculous! I've since visited Michelle at the Worcester clinic as a follow up, my back and pelvis alignment appear to be fixed!
I could not recommend Michelle highly enough to anyone enduring back problems that like me were putting it down to increasing years!

'Michelle was recommended to us by a colleague at my wife's work as our 4 month old son was experiencing digestive issues. Having explored many other options (GPs, medication etc.) we visited Michelle not really knowing what to expect.
Michelle was professional, friendly and informative and was able to identify some potential issues in the alignment of both his neck and pelvis. Michelle took the time to explain how and why these issues were present and was patient when answering our many questions around the treatment our son was receiving.
Our son undertook 3 sessions with Michelle and improvements were seen after each session. On discharge, our son was like a completely different baby - He was more settled, more comfortable when lay down and less windy! The difference was so evident that friends and family also commented on how "chilled" he was.
Since our initial visit we have returned once as our son was exhibiting symptoms again. The improvement after just one session was evident.
Having such a successful experience with our son, I visited Michelle for my own back pain issues. Having previously been told by other professionals the problem will never be fully rectified and that long term back support and changes to my lifestyle would be required I am delighted to say that after only one visit to Michelle I felt an immediate improvement and was no longer experiencing the ongoing pain. I am still undergoing treatment with Michelle but feel confident that this will offer me the long term solution I have been looking for.
With the fantastic results that both my son and I have experienced we have already recommended her to several people and will continue to sing her praises!'

You may remember I came to see you in the spring & had 3 sessions over a 6 week period for a painful lower back which was preventing me from doing any sporting activity at all.
I'm glad to say that having stuck to the exercise regime you set I'm up and running, triathlon training & managed to complete a 31 mile ultra marathon over the black mountains last weekend with out too much pain or stiffness the day after . So a big thank you for your treatment & advice, I'm delighted.
This email is just to keep in touch, say thank you.

At your service in health, happiness and prosperity
