About Us

Melanie qualified in London from the British School of Osteopathy in 1988, having completed a four year full-time course. Initially she set up in Heswall operating as a sole practitioner, but needing to grow to meet demand ,later moved to premises in Milner Road (operating as Heswall Osteopathy and Holistic Centre)in 1994. In December 2015, due to growing family commitments, we moved to our current location on Rocky lane in the centre of Heswall

Melanie also qualified as an animal/veterinary Osteopath in 2003 after a postgraduate course, and has more recently completed a Masters degree in Public Health Nutrition and a post-graduate teaching certificate PGCertACE.
