St John’s Osteopathy and Acupuncture

COVID-19 announcement from SJOA

SJOA are doing the outmost for the safety of our clients and our staff. With this in mind we have have taken the difficult decision to close our clinic for a short period. We are encouraging all our clients to follow government guidelines on social distancing to help reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

We hope to back up and running as soon as possible and we encourage all our clients to look after their health and that of their family.

In order to stay healthy whilst at home there are some basic measures we can take that will boost our immune system, strengthen our body and keep our mind healthy:

  1. Daily exercise for 30-60 minutes; home aerobics, Yoga, cycling, walking (following government guidelines on social distancing) gentle aerobic exercise boosts the immune system, high intensity training (HIT) can lead to increase of upper respiratory tract infection Click here for info it can also ‘stress’ our nervoendocrinoimmune system Click here for info
  2. Reduce or cut out alcohol: research has shown a relationship between over consumption of alcohol and an increased susceptibility to pneumonia Click here for info
  3. Practice breathing techniques, mindfulness or meditation these practices activate the parasympathetic nervous system which is needed for relaxation, healing and digestion
  4. Diet is of upmost importance; sugar and junk food weaken our immune system, eat a balanced diet reducing sugar and refined oils. If we reduce the burden on our digestive system, reduce the intake of toxins that burden the liver, our immune system will thrive
  5. Water; drinking plenty of water helps our body to flush out toxins, aids in digestion, helps with blood flow and thus oxygen delivery, helps in the generation of neurotransmitter and hormones, regulates blood pressure, aids kidney function and regulation of body temperature
  6. Sleep, a minimum of 7 hours is needed for healthy functioning our brain and body if you follow all of the advice above you should find sleep is restful and energising
  7. Communicate; we are social animals so remember to reach out if you need help or contact those who may be on their own

We are still available to answer queries in relation to admin. Please contact us on

What Our Clients Say

I cannot recommend Byron enough. He is the best osteopath / acupuncturist I have come across thus far. I had a pain in my shoulder and back of the leg for almost four years and after only five sessions, it has completely gone. He is outstanding with pain management and healing. Shame he cannot be cloned so that my family and friends abroad could have sessions with him too!
Angela M, 37
I have seen Matt several times over the past 5 years due to back problems caused by my work. I have always been happy with the treatments and aftercare advice. I would highly recommend him. 
Phil H, Company Director
The pain in the neck and shoulders has miraculously disappeared. Ameet has really helped me in a way that no conventional doctor had.
Jack R, Journalist
Lara’s teaching is truly inspirational and unique. She has a very calming presence that has managed to make me focused and mindful whilst still challenging myself in the safe, restorative and beautifully nurturing environment she provides. I am always energised after my classes with her and look forward to them immensely.  I feel lucky to have found her as a teacher.
