John Vesey 

I have been an Osteopath for over 37years and have a wealth of experience in treating people with a wide range of health issues. I have a passion for helping people rediscover their health and reach their full potential. I treat Adults, Babies, and Children.


My therapies include Cranial Osteopathy, Osteopathy, and Counselling.  Often talking through life experiences, stresses and shocks during an Osteopathic treatment can help release body and mind patterns Old emotional stresses are held in the body and mind, so a Body to Mind and a Mind to Body approach often works well.

Whole Body,Whole Mind

Release, Relax, Rebalance, Restore, Recharge

with John 
Counselling Psychology

This form of manual medicine has been developing over more than 100 years.

It is a holistic approach, working with the structure and functions of the whole body 

and is applicable to adults of all ages, pregnant women, children and babies .

What to expect?

On your first visit (usually 1hour) a full case history and examination takes place and a diagnosis and treatment plan is made, usually followed by treatment.

Cranial Osteopathy (not just the head) is a key part of treatment, which has profound balancing effects on the mechanical structures of the body, including the fasciae, the central and autonomic nervous systems, viscera, circulatory, and lymphatic systems  and this is often deeply restorative and relaxing. People of all ages from birth onwards can benefit.

Visceral Osteopathy, a gentle rebalancing of position and movement of organs of the  body such as stomach, lungs or bowel helping them work more efficiently.


Our therapeutic approach is integrative and tailored to each person according to their needs.

John Vesey Registered Counsellor

What to expect?

We suggest an initial session to see if counselling or counselling psychology with us is the best option at this time and plan our approach, number of sessions and frequency etc.

Counselling is offered in a quiet, safe,supportive and confidential setting, in a gentle and non-judgmental way, over a number of weeks.

Together we explore and work through any issues you may have, such as stress, anxiety, depression, traumatic life events, loss and bereavement, relationship challenges, sleep disturbance, illness, etc.


Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional Therapy combines the latest scientific research in biochemistry and nutrition to improve health and well-being.

What to expect?

During the consultation, your detailed health questionnaire and food diary is assessed. A personalised health plan which includes recommendations on your diet, lifestyle and supplementation is provided.

Food Intolerance Testing

A computerised screening device called the MSAS ("BEST") system is used.

What to expect?

A reading is taken from a point on your finger using a probe which is non-invasive. You will see the results immediately on the screen, followed by a printout listing the foods you are intolerant to.


Acupuncture Chinese/Japanese in origin,is thousands of years old now widely used and recommended by the WHO and other medical bodies as an effective method of improving health.

What to expect?

Your health concerns, medical history, diet and lifestyle will be taken into account.

Needles are extra fine, sterile and discarded after single use. They are inserted gently into various points along the energy medians of the body and may be felt as minor, slightly achy sensations.They are left in for betweeen 5-25 minutes.

Traditional Chinese acupuncture is used to balance the energy of different organ systems of the body and many people find it relaxing and pain relieving.
