Jeremy Jones-Bateman

Jeremy Jones-Bateman joined our team  in 2017, sharing his time between treating patients at Osteopath West and working as the clinic coordinator at the University college of Osteopathy where both Lisa and Jeremy trained. He is also registered with the General Osteopathic Council.

Jeremy having always had a passion for how the human body operates, qualified and practiced as a sport massage therapist in a central London gym. He further developed these skills by gaining a Bachelor of Osteopathy after training for five years at the University College of Osteopathy (formerly known as the British School of Osteopathy or BSO)

Whilst training at the UCO Jeremy had placements in a wide range of specialist clinics including Pregnant Mothers and HIV clinics. He also has a special interest on the effects of mindfulness meditation on pain management and has successfully treated many patients by combining mindfulness with his osteopathic techniques.

Jeremy’s experience of working with a wide range of patients alongside specialist osteopathic tutors, combined with a previous career in the tourist industry has been invaluable in building his patient/practitioner relationship.

 

How do we treat?

Osteopathy is a whole system of assessment, diagnosis and treatment of many dysfunctions of the body. It aims to reduce pain and promote normal, healthy function of the body by correcting mechanical imbalances within each individual’s neuromuscular-skeletal system.

Osteopathy involves gentle and controlled manual techniques using the hands, including mobilisation, manipulation, stretching and soft tissue massage. Some techniques may require the patient to interact with breathing exercises or muscle contraction. Exercise and health advice, to improve quality of life, may also be given. Osteopaths are also trained to assess when osteopathic treatment is not appropriate and can refer for further investigations.

What do we treat?

Osteopathy can treat a wide range of problems including neck or back pain, including sciatica, arthritic and rheumatic pain, muscular spasms and joint pain. Patients having difficulty relaxing or who have respiratory, circulatory or digestive problems can also benefit from osteopathic treatment.

You are generally asked to dress down to your underwear for the observation, evaluation and treatment, a towel is provided if and when required. Before commencing treatment the osteopath will explain her evaluation and diagnosis and agree upon a treatment plan. Treatment usually starts at the first appointment if appropriate.

Testimonials

“Lisa’s interest in women’s health makes her the perfect addition to our antenatal team at The Blooming Bunch. We only work with tried and trusted health professionals with the experience to match their people skills. We often refer to labour as a marathon, not a sprint and Lisa’s background means that she understand and communicates the sporting analogy brilliantly. Lisa seems always keen to listen and to learn more. Refreshingly, she doesn’t have the arrogance of some medics who feel they know it all!”

Beverley Turner, Founder of  The Happy Birth Club  in Chiswick

“A busy and active lifestyle had taken its toll on my back suffering discomfort for quite a few weeks. After a consultation with Jeremy, I knew I was in safe hands. After the initial consultation, I only needed a few appointments and Jeremy was very thorough in explaining the issues I was having. His level of professionalism, knowledge and care was excellent and I would highly recommend his service to anyone in need of an expert to get them up and running again!”
