Jackie is absolutely amazing. I recommend her to all our clients. Trusting in her wealth of knowledge to get me back to work when I need it the most. Thank you

Jackie is amazing. I went yesterday with what was heading for a full-on frozen shoulder. After some admittedly quite painful manipulation, I now have 99% movement back! Jackie is very careful to listen, suggest what the problem might be and then explain what she is going to do to help you out. As an ex-hockey player herself (come on get back in there!!) she understands the mentality of those of us who play sport on a regular basis. If you ache or hurt definitely give her a try. Booking an appointment online is also incredibly simple.

Retired,


Jackie Gowland has been my Osteopath for the last 10+ years, treating my various back, shoulder and neck issues, initially at her Chislehurst practice and now at the Blackfen practice. During this time, Jackie has always been very professional, approachable and, above all, empathetic. She goes the extra mile by following up on appointments, emailing information sheets showing exercises to do at home which complements the manipulation she has done. Jackie is passionate about the benefits of osteopathy and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is considering consulting her.

I started having back pain a couple of years ago. There was no particular incident that I can link to the cause of the problem. I was assessed and treated by numerous professionals but unfortunately, none of the treatments made a significant improvement to my condition. Jackie came highly recommended to me, so I decided to seek her help. She is very knowledgeable and experienced and has given me lots of guidance and support on my road to recovery. I would not hesitate to recommend Jackie to anyone. She is a true professional who takes on a very personal approach towards her clients.

I booked an appointment initially for my neck. After the initial consultation and assessment, Jackie went to work, working on my neck, back, hips and legs. I can honestly say I have never felt better. I now have regular sessions to keep everything aligned. I cannot recommend highly enough, First class treatment and I can now carry on my training pain-free.

I have rheumatoid arthritis and find that these treatments really help with managing my condition. It affects the way I walk, which has a knock-on effect on my posture causing back and neck pain. I wanted to give holistic treatments a go, to try and avoid too much medication. I found Jackie's original clinic by searching online and, as they are close to where I live, decided to give them a go. That was about 4 years ago and I haven’t looked back. I am very happy with the service I receive. Jackie is warm, yet professional and has always made me feel better when I’ve been to see her. She has a no-nonsense approach but is very calm and kind. A rare combination. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her

Mrs Y.H.

Registered Nurse


I sought help from an Osteopath having struggled with a hip and knee problem for some time. Jackie took a detailed history and then over 6 sessions used joint mobilisation, manipulation and soft tissue massage which reduced pain and swelling. She also suggested exercises and techniques to minimise further damage which in combination with the treatment resulted in a considerable overall improvement. Jackie was at all times professional, highly knowledgable, friendly and approachable. As a Registered Nurse, I very much valued her expertise and would not hesitate to recommend her.

Mr R.B.


I first sought advice with lower back issues in early 2007 whilst preparing for a long-distance cycling event.   The core problem was diagnosed and treated in the space of 2 visits greatly reducing the pain experienced after hours in the saddle and improving the flexibility and posture issues that I previously had. I went away from the consultations with an immediate improvement but also armed with recommended exercises and stretches designed to avoid the recurrence of injury.   I have continued to work with the practice since then to keep the problems at bay and to work alongside my sporting goals as the targets have changed in recent years.

I first came to Jackie with a long-standing mobility problem and muscle weakness. I had tried several treatment options and didn’t know where to go next. After a full examination, including details of history and life-style, Jackie was able to explain the causes, and put together a course of treatment, tailored to my needs, involving therapy in the clinic and exercises at home sent to me by email. Jackie is thorough, knowledgeable and flexible in her approach, adjusting the programme as recovery progresses. She has experience of a wide variety of treatments to draw on and was also able to help with a chronic sinus problem. I should add that she is good company, and our sessions are filled with laughter and good conversation! A visit to Jackie is a real tonic! I am nearly back to full strength, and I am grateful that I found Jackie when I did. Now that I understand the importance of the skeleton and muscle structure of the body to all the other systems, I shall continue to check in with Jackie to ensure that the difficulties do not recur.
