The massage, medical acupuncture and manipulative techniques used by osteopaths can help some arthritis sufferers with chronic pain.
Approximately 5.6 million working days in the UK are lost every year due to back pain. Time spent at a desk can be a large factor in this.
Gentle massage techniques of the tight muscles of the head, neck, shoulders and jaw, alongside manipulation to loosen the joints of the neck, thorax and ribcage can relieve the build-up of tension that may lead to headaches.
Osteopaths use a wide range of manipulations depending on your age, body-type, fitness levels and diagnosis to reduce muscular tension and related pain in the neck.
Pregnancy Related Pain
Our treatments are aimed at normalising the structure so that it functions as efficiently as possible. Osteopaths use gentle techniques adapted for the pregnant patient.
Sciatica is normally caused by pressure or inflammation of the sciatic nerve arising from the lower back. Osteopaths can treat the related joints, muscles, ligaments or tendons to reduce the effects of this.
We treat a broad range of patients from new borns to the elderly, providing patients with an empathetic, thorough and caring treatment process. Please feel free to contact us for more information or to book an appointment.
A holistic approach to your problem. The first consultation is dedicated to finding out about you and what has lead to the development of your symptoms. We don’t just look at the area of pain, we try and establish why this has occurred in the first place, the root cause and the predisposing factors. Not only this, but what may be maintaining the problem.
Diagnosis. Once we have highlighted the source of the symptoms, we will explain this to you clearly so that you fully understand which structure(s) the symptoms are originating from, how this affects other areas and what may have caused the problem.

Who we are.
Pippa Evans graduated from the British School of Osteopathy with a Distinction in the Masters degree in Osteopathy. Previous to this Pippa graduated from the University of Bristol with an honours degree in anatomy and holds an ITEC diploma in sports massage therapy.
Steve McMullen has benefited from osteopathy for over 20 years, thanks to receiving treatments for his own sports and work related injuries.
I initially studied sport science at University because of my involvement and passion for sports, but due to my natural eagerness to help others I was encouraged to pursue a career as a Physio.
BTEC Level 5 Clinical Sports & Remedial Massage is an advanced qualification and the highest in the industry. A minimum of 100 practical hours are a required to complete the course, along with an in depth knowledge of anatomy and advanced treatment techniques.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy has been of great benefit to me in my life. It gave me the confidence and motivation to turn my life around and be truly happy. I now run my own hypnotherapy practices in Cirencester, Swindon and Malmesbury.
I can’t thank Pippa enough for the help she gave me with my back and neck pain. She listened when I explained the problems and was quickly able to find the issue. Pippa always explained how and why this had happened and gave me suggestions to help prevent it from happening again. She was very knowledgable. Pippa was kind and caring and I always felt comfortable during my appointments. I visited Pippa every few months to keep everything on track and she always gave honest advice on whether I needed more appointments or not.
Pippa really understood my back, shoulder and arm pain and used a combination of osteopathy, dry needling and rock tape to treat it very successfully. I was surprised at how quickly the initial problem resolved, particularly after the dry needling. The exercises she suggested were helpful and easy to do. All in all, a great service. Thank-you Pippa!
I can not recommend Pippa highly enough. I walked in to her clinic a few months ago in significant pain, thinking there was no hope of me ever getting my shoulders sorted enough to get back in the gym. Pippa is friendly, knowledgeable and professional. She immediately made me feel at ease, explained what was wrong to each shoulder and more importantly she allowed me to leave her clinic feeling relieved, hopeful and almost pain free. Four sessions with her have made such a massive difference that I am beginning to think my shoulders are normal again!
For a while I really struggled with a problem under my shoulder blade and across my back that would cause a lot of discomfort. Not only did Pip locate the problem(s) and treat it, she showed me how to best look after it myself. It has certainly improved since seeing her. I would really recommend Pip and Malmesbury Osteopathy to anyone who needs help and wants a friendly and welcoming Osteopath.
