I highly recommend City Osteopaths and Ruth: effective, supportive care and highly professional.

I have received excellent care and treatment at City Osteopaths. When I initially emailed to request an appointment, because of back and shoulder/neck pain, I had an appointment booked in the next day. Ruth is very knowledgable and treats pain by looking at the whole body. From the first session I came away from my treatment in less pain, which has now subsided and was also given ways to help prevent pain happening in future. I highly recommend City Osteopaths and Ruth: effective, supportive care and highly professional.

Good results

Ruth is an excellent osteopath. I suffer from chronic pain which I can manage most of the time but need treatments during flare ups. I can bank on Ruth to help me get back to normal quickly. Her treatments have always helped bring relief to a stiff neck, back problems or feeling lopsided! In the past, after seeing other practitioners I have felt nauseous or developed headaches after being treated. Not with Ruth. I've always managed to get appointments within a day or two and am glad I have found someone so knowledgeable, insightful and trusted. I highly recommend this practice.

Excellent care and support

I've been seeing Ruth since 2010/11. I am delighted with the excellent care and support from Ruth. She is very thorough and gives me stretches/ exercises that will specifically help my issues. I mostly have neck, back and hip problems which recur from time to time partly exacerbated by working at the computer. Ruth tackled the root of the problem manipulating the area each time. Mostly she is able to fix the issues in one session while on rare occasions the really bad ones like spasms takes 2 or 3 sessions. Highly recommended.

Ruth is a truly great osteopath

I have been seeing Ruth for over a year now with a twisted pelvis. I can not recommend Ruth enough. I was recommended Ruth as a very good osteopath, by a friend and my Pilate's teacher. They were both 100% right. Ruth is very professional and thorough. She is very attentive and pays attention to detail with my needs within each session. I feel Ruth assesses holistically where she looks at my discomfort/injury and where I want to get to on a physical and well being level. Each session I come out knowing more about my body and educated about what I need to do in order to maintain and prevent further discomfort. I finish each session feeling looser, in less pain and more mobile. My hope is that in time I will live a life with little discomfort and feel reassured by Ruth that this is possible. I would recommend if anyone is looking for a thorough, attentive and highly professional osteopath then you should book to see Ruth. She is approachable and has a lovely manner about her too.
