How we can help you

We are a multidisciplinary Practice dedicated to patient centred, high quality, alternative and complimentary therapies. Our Centre is particularly well known for its Osteopathic care of babies and children and there is great experience with gentle techniques such as Cranial Osteopathy as well as traditional practices. Our Osteopaths are highly trained and have a combined experience of nearly 50 years.

We also have 3 fully trained and highly experienced Podiatrists (they used to be called Chiropodists) with varying specialties including Diabetic care, Verrucas and Wound Dressing. Our Masseur is a specialist in Therapeutic work and fascial techniques as well as relaxation. Please also look at the information on our experienced Acupuncturist and dedicated and friendly Nutritionist. We are committed to providing you with exceptional care and the highest standards of service and advice. We like to listen to our patients, take the time to understand your needs and find the best way to help you.

About us

The clinic was formed early in 1999 by our Principal Philip Allen and has grown to encompass the many therapies that you see listed. All practitioners are members of their respective professional bodies and highly trained. You will read more about them on their therapy pages.

Our staff consists of Practice Manager Caren, who keeps practitioners and patients happy and organised; Ruth our head receptionist, who finds no task to onerous and dedicates herself to looking after everyone who enters the building and Debbie who never fails to cheer us up. Last, but not least is our cleaner Gill, who has a particular liking for sticky back plastic. She cleans the Practice each morning before we begin.

We are in the middle of Prestwood, a large village in the beautiful Chilterns. Parking is not quite as plentiful as it was, so please read the parking section in ‘contact us’ before travelling. At this time, we cannot advise you to come in to discuss your need, but please feel free to contact us either by email or phone, we will be happy to hear from you.

We also have a satellite clinic Kew Osteopathy & Natural Health, South West London, where Philip Allen also works as well as the Acupuncturist Jasbinder Chana.

What our customers say

“Many years ago, I had a frozen shoulder after an accident which physiotherapy and even surgery did not help. I had 2 acupuncture appointments and it was freed, so when I got Sciatica I went straight to Damon and in just one appointment it disappeared.  Then 3 days before my son’s wedding I got bursitis diagnosed by my GP who advised acupuncture. I went straight to Damon, and once again, one appointment saved “the day “as I’d spent a fortune on that dress. I was so thankful.”

Irene Clarke

I have been visiting Helen for nearly fifteen years which involves a round trip of 35 miles each time. I am prepared to do this because Helen is an expert in her field, she offers a professional, yet caring and relaxed service combined with a passion for her vocation. I have no hesitation in recommending Helen and would travel further if necessary, to get such a complete service.

Ian Proddow

I`ve been seeing Amee for 7 years.  I have always found the treatment and advice from Amee excellent.  Her care is first class!  I always leave my appointments happy, comfortable and looking forward to my next visit.  With Amee`s vast experience, I felt happy to bring my daughter in for her verruca treatment.

Sally Schoenfield

Hayley helped me to identify which foods my son was intolerant to and thus helped to manage his ADHD.  She also helped identify foods that I was intolerant of and helped make changes to my diet. This has improved my mood, weight and my sluggish head in the morning! She is friendly and professional and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

ST Amersham

We “found” Phil when my second son was an intolerable, crying baby and I was at my wits end. I was undecided as to whether Phil offered help to my son or a placebo to me but was happy that things were improving.   I returned when a subsequent pregnancy left me barely able to walk. I remember staggering into his consulting room and pretty much skipping out. Following this I felt ready to explore how cranial osteopathy could help in managing my family’s well-being.

H A-R Beaconsfield

Over the years, I have undergone treatment for a variety of reasons, including bad back, post-operative care and post-natal care.  Russell’s treatment has always been holistic giving not only structural treatment but advice and support for emotional wellbeing.  His treatment has helped me through some very dark times and we are so blessed as a family to have Russell in our lives.

Jo Wood

Ben uses gentle techniques and is always calm and positive. He has treated me during and post-pregnancies and also had sessions with my babies and now children. We have all noticed great improvements and the children very feel comfortable going to the practice. Over the years, I have recommended Ben to a number of people who have mentioned benefiting from his treatments. We are lucky to have him and the practice in Prestwood!

Karine Lipinski

I have benefitted from treatment myself, particularly at times of physical or emotional stress. Most of these have been to do with maintaining health, but I also got rapidly better after a prompt treatment following a fall down some stairs. I am always left feeling more balanced, breathing better and able to cope. I have recommended Phil to those with and without children for a variety of different reasons.

Sue Lack

We have always found the clinic to be very friendly. On occasions using other osteopaths when Phil’s availability is limited. Although we haven’t used other services ourselves in pre Covid times there were always other satisfied patients in the waiting room. I must add that the attention to safety during the pandemic has been exemplary. We always feel very secure when visiting the centre.

Heather Ashby-Rose

My family have been treated by Damon for a number of years and have benefitted immensely. From migraine and joint pain to low energy and low mood and always a listening ear. The list is endless! We highly recommend Damon, and frequently do!

Jackie Youens

Helen is professional, friendly and attentive. After a treatment my feet are much improved and comfortable.

Alison Watkinson

I have been visiting Aimee for many years. I have nothing but good thing to say as she has been able to deal with my many conditions. She has always been professional & friendly. Would highly recommend her.

Cheryl Stokes

Hayley was recommended to me and although I live the other side of the country we managed appointments remotely.  Following a very simple blood test various food were identified as being unsuitable for my system. Since then, I have had more energy and few problems with my digestive system. The test and Hayley’s advice have been life changing.  She is a lovely lady and I can’t thank her enough for the help she gave me.

PH - Essex

My back has gone from strength to strength and I have even been able to take up gardening, something I never imagined my back could endure. I have introduced a number of friends to Ben for back and hip issues and they are all delighted by the results of his treatments. We all have a huge respect for Ben’s ability as a Cranial Osteopath as well as really appreciating him as a wonderful and kind person.

MG – Oxon

I have been seeing Russell periodically now for about 30 years. During this time he has treated me for a variety of muscular and similar problems, trapped nerves, sciatica, to name but a few.  Russell has a very friendly and re-assuring personality. He has a very professional approach to his treatment and works very gently but firmly. He always discusses at the beginning what treatment he is going to do.  He will offer advice as to how certain exercises could help and these are always very beneficial.

Avril Jackson

I first came to see Ben with symptoms diagnosed as ME that I had been struggling with for 2 years. Very quickly these symptoms became controllable and within a few months most had been eliminated. I am ever so grateful for Ben’s caring and understanding yet informative approach to Cranial Osteopathy. It really has been life changing and I would thoroughly recommend him to everyone.

Eleanor Rowbotham

Over the years I have asked Phil to help with anything from back ache and whiplash to concussions and health issues associated with internal organs playing up. I now visit for a general reboot every other month and consider his care to be part of my health plan. My children consider him a first port of call following a sporting injury. I can highly recommend his services.

Heather Ashby-Rose

Upon entering the clinic, there is always a friendly, warm and professional receptionist to welcome you.  Caren and the team always endeavour to help in any way they can; be it changing appointments, trying to find an emergency slot etc. Always polite. Always helpful.  They care about helping you and it sets the tone for the whole practice.

Zoe LLoyd

Damon brings a kind and empathetic approach to acupuncture to add to the efficacy of the treatment.

Kay Allen

After a prediabetic diagnosis from my GP I started to meet monthly with Hayley and she completely changed my life. After successfully losing three stone and no longer prediabetic seeing her was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Highly recommended

TM - Chesham

I have a long history of back pain with severe congenital scoliosis and I have sought out the very best Cranial Osteopaths in London and Bath. I was anxious when I had to move to Oxfordshire but I was amazed and delighted to find Ben Colyer. Ben is one of the best Cranial Osteopaths I have ever been lucky enough to work with.
