"Dear Melinda, Now that I am home in New York, I wish to again thank you for the relief you brought to my aching body during my recent six week stay in London.  I marvel at how your Osteopathic techniques, gentle though they are, delivered such desired rejuvenating results for me; what you cheerfully characterize as "age-proofing" one's body.   
   I had come to you seeking relief from the myriad of muscular skeletal pain I was experiencing from my shoulders to my feet, and was fortunate to have had family members recommend Fulham Osteopaths for treatment. I say without reservation, that the outcome of your treatments were most favorable.   As a long time regular Chiropractic patient, I was amazed, no, make that thrilled, to have experienced first hand how beneficial your soothing techniques worked to relieve my pain. Several of my issues were the result of injuries I had sustained in a fall while in London, while other discomfort (including that from a partially paralyzed leg) is chronic and due in large part to my past sports heroics which include thirty years of martial arts training and having played other contact sports competitively. You also were keen to observe and correct the awkward gait I had developed over many years of my improperly planting the foot on my good leg while walking. Fascinating and educational, too, was to hear you explain exactly what you were doing, and what the intended desired result would be of each technique as you applied it. You were not only able to stimulate sensation in my partially paralyzed leg, but throughout my course of treatments with you, you realigned my entire body. I now eagerly look forward to receiving additional Osteopathic maintenance tune-ups from you on my next trip to London in April. You successfully treated this seventy-three year old formerly “Humpty-Dumpty” body, that of my wife, and those of our grandsons ages eleven and five, and their parents. Be well, and may you and your associates at Fulham Osteopaths continue to cheerfully “age-proof” your patients."

”I have been having treatment from Simon Brocard for lower back and right elbow pain. I would highly recommend Simon, his treatment has been really effective helping me resume martial arts training. He has also provided me with really great advice on my posture and exercises to help."

"I have a very stressful job as an Art Editor for a major weekly magazine. I had been feeling more and more tense around the neck and shoulders, until one morning I woke up unable to move my head or neck. It was very painful. The first visit to the practice provided instant relief and identified R.S.I. in combination with an old injury, all being aggravated by my stressful timetable at work. A couple more visits and some sensible advice the staff solved the problem and I now visit once every two months or so, just to keep myself in good order. "

"As a graphic designer I use a computer almost constantly. Imagine my horror when I started to develop R.S.I. I work freelance and it really threatened my career, as well as being quite painful. Two treatments with Andy sorted the problem out and at a very reasonable cost. I also got some great advice about how to avoid it flaring up again. Like many others I felt suspicious of osteopathy and felt it would involve bone crunching of some kind. I found it really gentle but very powerful. It really is comforting to know that in face of problems which mainstream medicine can do little to fix that there is an effective alternative."

"I have tried quite a number of osteopaths so I know from experience that for me the osteopaths that work in this practice are the best. During your first visit you discover that this team care about eliminating the pain from your body. I know that I can always count on them to straighten and stretch me out so that I can function normally again."

"I'm so happy I discovered Fulham Osteopaths especially Kam who has given my back a new lease of life. The stiffness and pain which I thought was par for the course as you got older has gone and now anyone who mentions back pain to me is sent straight to Cam so she can sort them out, osteopathy at it's best!"

"A treatment is always an adventure. I have been coming to the practice for many years – it is part of my “time” for looking after myself. The team here are experienced, caring and incredibly well-informed. They also have a range of treatments on offer which can help you learn more about what works for you in order to maximize your treatment and furtherance of health. I have learnt a lot about what works for me and what doesn’t work for me, but my quality of life has improved tremendously through patiently working through and persevering with the treatment."

"Having previously had lower back problems, I was obviously worried when I fell pregnant that my back would flare up again, or get worse. Unfortunately for me it did, with a little sciatica thrown in for good measure, but Melinda at the Fulham Osteopath Practice set me on the right path again. After only a couple of appointments my back was in much better shape, and the sciatica practically gone. With only a few weeks to go until the birth of my first child my back is now in great shape, due a few more maintenance appointments, and I would fully recommend Melindas insightful way of working and also tips for labour and its lead up, ensuring a healthy back, body and mind. Thank you!"

"I write to thank you for my recent session with you. The way you worked had a profound effect; your level of rapport with my 'body' ( on many levels ) was extraordinary, and the transformation energetically and physically in the session, and afterwards, was quite marked. It felt as if many years of tensions just melted away and made space for a 'new way' to emerge."

"I'm a mum and a pediatric occupational therapist. So when it came to looking for a cranial osteopath for my son, I knew we'd be in good hands at Fulham Osteopaths. On a professional level, I had first-hand seen positive results and progress in children I have treated whom were also seen by their osteopaths. On a personal level, as soon as we enter the door, we feel so welcome by Kat, the practice manager who collects lots of smiles from my little one. It's such a warm and friendly environment. My son has made huge progress under the care of Mindi and Vanisha, thanks to their background in both classical and cranial osteopathy. It's wonderful that they also collaborate with other professionals offering us a holistic team approach. Since being treated by them, my son's body is more relaxed, he feeds better, his digestion and health has improved significantly, and he is happier and more comfortable. I feel I have an extended support team which is so comforting as a first-time mum and after both a difficult pregnancy and traumatic birth. I wholeheartedly recommend Fulham Osteopaths and am so grateful for all they've done for us."

"I've been going to Fulham Osteopaths for over a decade and I recommend them unreservedly. I've been treated by a number of osteopaths there, and they have all been fantastic. My regular osteopath is Melinda who is completely brilliant. She has also treated both my children (for teething, sleep issues etc.). In the past, when I lived on the other side of London, I occasionally strayed from Fulham Osteopaths and always regretted it. There are many osteopathy practices closer to home but I cannot compromise."

"I just finished a one hour introductory consultation with one of their many osteopaths. I have had much experience with chiropractors and, unfortunately, some back problems. It wasn't until this visit that I really felt cared for and learned more about how to relax, breath, and move my muscles the correct way. Doctor also gave a wonderful spine and upper body massage (light) and adjustment. Only 67 quid too...sure beats harley street. Oh, and the doctors and reception were really nice and fun too! I don't even know why I am only giving them 4 stars, I guess I will wait until further visits and see how it all ends up."

"I can't thank Melinda enough for what she's done for my son Oliver. Our first treatment was when Oliver was only 12 weeks old. He had a horribly misshapen head because he would always sleep with his head to the right. Nothing I did made him keep his head on the left. After the first session with Melinda Oliver went home & happily slept with his head on the left hand side for the first time. It was like a miracle! After a few weeks of treatment, Oliver's head shape started to improve. Ollie's now 2 & his head looks absolutely normal. Without Melinda's help Ollie would have had to wear a helmet & I found the thought of that really upsetting. I didn't previously know anything about cranial osteopathy & I was very sceptical but I really can't recommend Melinda's treatment enough."

"Dear Melinda, Thanks very much for the mail. It has been a fairly soft landing so far in the Congo, food is good (I suppose I have not yet had the same food for seven weeks though!!), and though hours are long, it seems manageable. Downside may be working on Saturdays but there is not too much else to do so it is alright.  Yesterday morning I went for a small run and then some boxing in the gym with some other chaps from the site. So I must thank you for all the help over the past couple months to enable me to get to this state. When I came to see you for the first time a couple months ago, I had seen two doctors, had an MRI and the threat of cortisone, and seen four physiotherapists including two sports physiotherapists and one “alternative” physio. I should have been on the right track by then but after four years I still had symptomatic Achilles tendonosis. It had only been after seeing you for the first few sessions that I seemed to have any relief, and a few weeks later I was riding to work five times a week and later doing some mileage again on the weekend. Yours is an approach of investigation and using your understanding of the body to identify the cause of the problem, rather than just treating the symptoms, and that makes all the difference. I think it is a really innovative approach to understand the entire functioning of the body rather than trying to treat only the symptoms of the problem, since, as in my case, the painful part was only a small part of a bigger dysfunction. I appreciate all the effort you have put into thinking about the problem, rather than regurgitating some non-specific study. Also the additional effort to find new strengthening exercises to help me improve. Yours is a truly unique approach amongst all the specialists I have seen, and the only one that worked. It has been fantastic to return to a normal active lifestyle. And I can only thank you for it. My thanks again. I will be in for a check-up  next time I am in London!"

“Homeopathy has helped me enormously with pregnancy side effects like back pain, anxiety during the night and insomnia, heartburn and haemorrhoids. It also helped balance my sugar cravings - which were making me suffer from recurring thrush. On another note, I was very please with the effect homeopathy remedies had on my inner confidence and my ability to express my feelings and communicate with others. It helped me feel secure and confident. Thank you Malgosia!! "

"I was first recommended to see Malgosia in 2008. I had suffered from endometriosis since being diagnosed aged 23. I had been on the pill since then to control my symptoms and after 10 years I wanted to try a more natural approach. Malgosia has been helping me since this time to control my symptoms through homeopathy. I had always hoped to have a family at some point, but I was warned when I was initially diagnosed, that I might have difficulty falling pregnant, especially as I got older. But last September, aged 37, I was delighted to discover I was pregnant. Malgosia continued to support me with homeopathy and supplements through the pregnancy and my beautiful daughter, Lily, was born 4 months ago. I truly feel that without Malgosia's help, Lily wouldn't be here today and I will always be extremely grateful."

November 10th 2018 Dr Melinda is an amazing professional and a lovely person! I’ve suffered from the shoulder pain for three months and after several
sessions with Melinda I feel absolutely fantastic and I can’t thank her enough!

October 24th 2018 Melinda has recently treated my leg/foot (unusual for an Osteopath). She was thorough in her investigation and explained everything
she was doing and what was going on with my injury. This put me immediately at ease.
Brilliant treatment as always


August 23rd 2018 Incredibly rewarding experience for parent and baby especially. Evident during treatment and after the benefits for baby as posture
becomes more natural and range of movement is substantially increased making for a happy baby and happier father. Melinda and team are excellent I look forward to these sessions.


August 1st 2018 I had been having great difficulty walking recently and also have been finding it extremely painful to turn whilst in bed. My daughter
who lives in London suggested I come to visit her and whilst in London had suggested I go and see a doctor during my visit. The doctor who I went to see, could see from examining myself that I would benefit from some osteopathic treatment. He then referred myself to Melinda, who was able to see myself as a matter of urgency. When I arrived at the practice, Melinda’s treatment was delivered in a gentle fashion and she explained as I was being treated, what she was doing and why. Melinda has the gift of making one feel cared for in a genuine manner , and whilst I attended the practice, we built up a fantastic rapport with one another. Since being treated my Melinda, I have felt the results of the treatment received and feel much better. The reception team also are warm and friendly and are an asset to the team too.


Melinda is fantastic, a miracle worker. Throughout pregnancy she helped with my pelvis and since then has given me ongoing treatments to keep my back in check. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone and regularly do so. You will be in great hands. A big thumbs up from me!

May 22nd 2018

I have discovered Fulham Osteopath clinic during my first pregnancy in 2015, when I had rib pain due to growing baby bump and
kicking baby. I have been lucky enough to be treated by Melinda, which has turned out to be an amazing health maintenance for years to come. Melinda is extremely professional, yet caring, knowledgeable, resourceful and equally amazing at treating kids. My daughter has had cranial osteopathy post birth, as well as tongue tie treatment, which Melinda has picked up immediately. I cannot recommend her enough! Expecting now my second child, treatments will Melinda are at par to going for spa massage, only better!


Melinda was absolutely wonderful in treating my 6week old baby girl for reflux/agitation. Her experience, care, patience and knowledge really reassured me and my daughter really enjoyed her treatments. I really noticed an improvement afterwards. I would definitely recommend a visit. Thank you Melinda :)


May 17th 2018 Melinda helps me with my back and shoulder.She is very good and professional in osteopathy. I feel me absolutely amazing in 2
sessions with her.She also gave me a wonderful recommendation for my sitting posture . I am going to recommend her to my friends and colleagues.


May 17th 2018 I am pregnant and I have been seeing Melinda for a while. she is very knowledgeable and calming at the same time. I feel better every
time I come to see her and has made me rediscover my body.

May 17th 2018 I do a lot of running and sports. I have been seeing Melinda on and off for a number of years. Just this week, I hurt my neck in a yoga
class. I was in a lot of pain all weekend and had to cancel most of my plans. Melinda was able to get me into her practice on the Monday and totally fix my neck. The pain was gone. I feel amazing.


May 14th 2018 Melinda is a real gift, gentle and intuitive and has really helped me understand my body. I came with headaches and dizziness and her
care, professionalism and healing hands have made me feel like a new creation!

May 1st 2018 Mindy is a wonderful intuitive osteopath, I noticed a huge difference after two sessions. I’ve had a problem with hearing loss and
migraines. She’s noticed problems further away from my neck injury which have thus far hugely helped. I would highly recommend.

April 26th 2018 I’ve been seeing Melinda regularly for the last few weeks. From the first session I could feel a difference in my posture and shoulders in
particular. She has helped me become aware of my posture. There is a clear difference in the way I stand. Great osteopath highly

recommend.


April 17th 2018 There are not enough words to describe how excellent Melinda is. Melinda started helping our son when he was 4 months old for a left
eye ptosis and a slight flat head as he was bent on the left side of his body whilst being in my womb. We have started seeing Melinda every week and we have seen a lot of improvement. As I also suffered from pain in my joints and muscles (from head to toe: tight neck, elbows, positioning, stiff hip joints etc) that were due to the pregnancy and post pregnancy but also from some other small traumas, Melinda helped me as well. I couldn't believe that after one session I felt alive and vibrant again. Melinda is a really wonderful, experienced and passionate ostheopath who looks at the full picture of the problem rather than just where you have pain, and treats it accordingley. I couldn't recommend her enough for children but also adults (especially mumies). Also the atmosphere at the practice is wonderful, Angela at reception makes everyone feel happy! All the team of ostheopaths are really amazing and kind, which is very hard to find these days!


April 13th 2018 I love Melinda’s approach, it is completely holistic, giving a gentle but effective treatment whilst also giving dietary advice and at times
light touch therapy! Highly recommend her, not sure what I’d do without her!

April 10th 2018 My treatment with Melinda was very effective after just the first appointment. I have had her as my specialist for about 8 months and I
genuinely feel so much better and it has been the only treatment that has actually worked for my headaches.

April 4th 2018 If I were asked to recommend a osteopathic health specialist I would without hesitation suggest Melinda Cotton. This I base on a
longtime professional relationship during which I have been helped by Melindas skillful method. Combined with her knowledge and her positive, sensitive and gentle nature it every time results in a great relief of my presenting problem.


March 29th 2018 I have been very happy with the service from my therapist Melinda, I had very bad back pain and with her gentle expertise I have felt so
much better, overall I am very happy.

March 29th 2018 Fulham Osteopaths is an asset to our family. Melinda does amazing work-she’s knowledgeable, compassionate and easily helps you
become comfortable with the treatments. We all-1 year old, 2 year old, 6 year old and parents look forward to our visits and love how we feel afterwards.

My service was spectacular! I do hockey every week and I am usually left with aches and pains , mindi helped me overcome those things and now I come as regularly as possible and I usually have no pain within two days of the treatment .also the receptionists were so friendly and I don’t think of this as a i osteopath practice I think of it as a place where I am helped. But. Also cared for and I feel
right at home . and I give it my thumbs up

I have been very happy with my service here Mindi is very welcoming and helpful


March 29th 2018
March 29th 2018 Melinda is great with the 4 month old baby I’ve been bringing, and she offers great advice on things to do at home to support the work
she has been doing.

Consistently excellent


March 27th 2018
March 26th 2018 Melinda has helped me tremendously over nearly 20 years. Whenever my back goes she sees me asap and gets me back on my feet. She
has helped our whole family in different ways and I would wholeheartedly recommend her. N.H.

March 19th 2018 My family has been seeing Melinda and Cedric since 2015 and I ALWAYS recommend Melinda to my friends for their newborn babies.
She helped spot a rare developemental issue with my son who ended up needing surgery and I cannot be grateful enough.

March 15th 2018 I first went to see Melinda just over 18 months ago, doubled over in pain and unable to stand upright. A few sessions later and I was
right as rain - and Melinda has been looking after me ever since! She put me at ease right from the start, and it's very reassuring to know that she is there whenever I might need her. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Do not hesitate to visit this friendly and welcoming practice!


March 7th 2018 Melinda has treated me for almost 20 years. She works with the body as a whole whatever the presenting symptom and I feel confident
she is restoring my balance both physically as well as metaphorically. She has treated both my daughters, encouraging and empowering
them to maintain their physical well-being. She saw my older daughter through her pregnancy enabling her to manage both the physical and emotional transition to motherhood. In 2017 she met my grand-daughter Alice, so now all three generations benefit from her experience and care. I feel very safe in her hands. Thank you!



March 6th 2018 Melinda Cotton is a caring, professional, and skilful osteopath, with a gentle approach and many years of experience and learning. I
wholeheartedly recommend her, whatever your age or ailment and would give more stars if they were available.

March 2nd 2018 I've been attending Fulham Osteopaths since 2012, after deciding to try osteopathy after years of physiotherapy had failed to resolve a chronic back injury sustained in a car accident as a teenager. I was in constant pain with little mobility in my spine and was more like
someone in my eighties than early twenties. Melinda was amazing! She was the first person to assess my whole body and person rather than focusing solely on a symptomatic shoulder blade. A year later I was a completely different person and have been pretty much pain free ever since. Nowadays I attend Fulham Osteopaths once every couple of months for a once over or more frequently if I've a specific injury that needs attending. The entire team at Fulham Osteopaths are a joy and I've always felt in good hands when Melinda has been away and I've needed to be seen by someone else. The whole practice are so dedicated to the care of their patients and go above and beyond for you. I'm a complete osteopathy convert now!


March 2nd 2018 I love being seen by Mindy, I know I can trust her to listen, understand and deal with my pain – no matter how and where it’s
happening. Of course I recommend her.

March 2nd 2018 Melinda is a wonderful osteopath who looks at the whole person to understand a problem. After only two sessions I felt a tremendous
change! Highly recommend!


March 2nd 2018 I have been going to see Melinda for osteopathic treatment over a number of years now, whenever I have had a problem with my back,
neck, knees etc or even just for an MOT! She understands the body so well. I have great confidence in her skills; in fact I think she has
magic hands! After a treatment my body invariably feels lighter, more mobile and my overall state of mind improves. I am so happy that I found osteopathy through her as I am sure it has prevented having to undergo more invasive medical procedures.


February 26th 2018 I could not recommend Melinda more, she has treated me and my little one with amazing results. She is a great osteopath as well as a
lovely person. The whole team is great and very professional

February 24th 2018 Mindy is truly amazing and you can see results from day one. My daughter has been a patient since she was 2 months old and I was
terrified to take her to an osteopath as I frankly had no clue what to expect. Mindy kept me always informed of each step and kept us all
calm and reassured; once we actually had the first session I was super happy and I truly look forward to seeing her next and see our

calm and reassured; once we actually had the first session I was super happy and I truly look forward to seeing her next and see our daughter thriving thanks to her treatments.


February 23rd 2018 I saw Melinda for a last minute emergency appointment because my osteopath was unwell. We only had a short appointment but she
was immediately able to identify the problems and work in an efficient, careful and effective way, to not only alleviate my pain but educate me about the problem and what to do about it. I would wholeheartedly recommend her and her skilled team at Fulham Oesteopaths. Many thanks!


February 23rd 2018 I have been seeing Melinda for years - both for myself and my two young sons. She is an amazing osteopath and I can't believe my luck
of finding someone so good locally. She has helped me over the years with my back problems, addressing the underlying posture issue,
to an extend that I seldom suffer anymore. I always enjoy my sessions with her - she has a warm, nurturing manner and our chats are very insightful. And she really excels in treating children - her manner puts them at ease and she gets them to stay still for an hour which is a feat with my active boys! Cannot recommend her more highly!


February 22nd 2018 I went to Melinda after weeks in pain from my left hip. She was able to help relieve the pain and after three visits it was much
improved. She was so good at explaining what nerve was trapped and traced it back to my spine and showed myself and my partner a couple of hip manoeuvres to help relieve the discomfort at home. She is an excellent therapist with a lovely manner and helps to put you at ease with her confident, knowledgeable,caring and reassuring approach. I would thoroughly recommend her.


Excellent treatment by the very gentle and perceptive Melinda . Would ( and do!) recommend


February 22nd 2018
February 22nd 2018 I am the mother of six year old twins who were born extremely premature. Because of the prematurity one of them has complex
medical needs. I have been visiting Melinda at Fulham Osteopaths regularly since my little boy came home from the hospital. Melinda is the most professional, experienced, kind osteopath I know. Through the years she has helped my son immensely with many of his health issues (such as postural and movement difficulties, reflux, and sleeping). Melinda has the most gentle and healing touch and my boy is always looking forward to seeing her. She is incredibly knowledgeable and generous with her time; she even liaises with the other professionals who help my son offering her precious expertise. I can not recommend Melinda highly enough. The practice she runs is an oasis of peace and calm, and from the moment we walk through the doors and we are greeted by the ever smiling Angela we feel serene and well looked after.


February 20th 2018 I booked an appointment after having been recommended by a dear friend. Immediately I felt at home and had a warm welcome. I’ve
been treated by Melinda, who was the warmest, sweetest and most caring osteopath I have ever met. She didn’t see the individual problem, but instead looked at the whole picture and so all of my body and through some gentle treatment and explanation as she went along, she simply fixed me! I remember limping into the practice that morning and walking out straight upright and pain free. I was impressed with the whole approach and immediate results and also that they didn’t try to sell me another booking at all, instead Melinda just gave me a warm hug and wished me to stay well. Will definitely and wholeheartedly recommend Fulham Osteopaths to anyone who is looking for treatment by safe, competent and honest hands.




February 20th 2018 Mindi has been of great help with my baby daughter. She gave her a cranial treatment and supported her development. She's been an
amazing support in correcting her flat head and always provided a sound advise on whatever we needed in terms of holistic treatments, practitioners etc. I believe my baby daughter became much calmer and content thanks to our visits to Mindi. Her calm and gentle approach always put me and my daughter at ease. You know you are in safe hands with Mindi. She is highly experienced and professional. I would recommend her wholeheartedly.


February 19th 2018 I have now had 2 appointments with Melinda and both have been nothing short of superb. My wife and I took our 1 week old baby in
for some treatment and were astounded with the immediate results. Melinda was informative about her profession, in a way that we could understand, and was equally informative on subjects outside of her remit that have proved more than useful when caring for a newborn. Encouragingly, Melinda was also generous with her time and extended one of our appointments free of charge (into her tea break) so that she could continue helping our child. Overall, the appointments have been thoroughly satisfying, informative and worthwhile. I wholeheartedly recommend Melinda and this practice to anyone who wants to see results for themselves or loved ones.


February 19th I wholeheartedly recommend Melinda Cotton as an excellent osteopath. She has helped me in times of acute pain and also worked
really effectively on underlying conditions in a way that has really improved my quality of life. Having visited many osteopaths in the past, none compare to Melinda.


February 18th 2018 Melinda's treatment is gentle yet extremely effective. After breast feeding my two children I had developed a hunch which Melinda
managed to reverse. I like that she talks me through what she's doing and why, and offers practical guidance on what I can do myself to improve and maintain my back health, for example giving me exercises and tips for my desk at work. I am notably more flexible and resilient post a treatment with Melinda and would highly recommend her to anyone with a back problem or looking for preventative treatment to maintain back health.


February 16th 2018 So helpful and very knowledgeable! Melinda and Simon worked together to help my 3 month old with an overly sensitive gag reflex
and other tension which is now much improved. Thank you!

February 16th 2018 Due to many years experience of Melinda Cotton's treatment of me and my physical ailments, I feel merited to write this. Melinda is, in
my view,not only a highly qualified and skilled practitioner, she also has the right personality. She is sensitive, positive and positive and
although highly professional she projects an aura of healing qualities. I feel safe in her hands, I feel cared for and held.

February 16th 2018

February 16th 2018
As a midwife I really understand the value of good osteopathic treatment. Melinda Cotton and her colleagues at Fulham Osteopaths are professional. intuitive and first class practitioners. Whether it is for my own health or that of my clients, I have no hesitation at all in recommending both Melinda and Fulham osteopaths.


February 15th 2018 Our little boy Ethan has been seeing Melinda for several months as He has flat head syndrome. She has been fantastic and he has made
great progress. We are very happy with the service and are blessed to have found her.

February 15th 2018 I have known Melinda for many years (as both a patient and the parent of a patient) and I have found her to be a truly gifted healer.
Melinda creates a warm and safe environment that allows you to feel someone is really listening to you and you are in good and knowledgeable hands. She is considerate and extremely effective expert. I would highly recommend Melinda.


February 15th 2018 My family and I have used Melinda Cotton at Fulham Osteopaths for 10 years. She is an amazing practitioner who has treated us for a
variety of injuries and acute conditions. I have recommended friends and colleagues to her over the years who have all sung her praises.

February 14th 2018 Melinda is wonderful! She is an excellent listener as well as a keen observer and this translates into well targeted, successful treatment.
For more sensitive patients, or patients in severe pain, Melinda maintains a gentle touch and will not go beyond their comfort zone. She
has treated my two children, my husband and me with great success. One of my children is highly distractible, yet Melinda has managed to work with him rather than against him to ensure a successful session. My other child was nervous at first, but Melinda quickly put him at ease by assuring him that she would always ask his permission before doing anything and there would be no "surprises". The reception team are very helpful and very sympathetic should you be in severe pain and in need of an emergency appointment. I highly recommend Melinda and her team!


I have been taking my newborn baby girl to Fulham osteopaths to see Melinda Cotton. Melinda’s warm, caring and nurturing approach has helped both baby and me tremendously. She is extremely knowledgable about all aspects of physiological wellbeing for babies and could pick up on subtle issues that can impact the baby’s optimal development.


January 30th 2018 Melinda's passion for and incredible expertise in osteopathy was obvious from the very first minute I met her. With more than 30 years
of experience in the field, including teaching at one of the most prestigious colleges of osteopathy in Britain, she brought an extraordinary set of skills, professionalism and calmness into her treatment. She has a fantastic touch, knows exactly where to work on without having to point anything out leaving no stones unturned. I left the treatment feeling taller and definitely more mobile. I would highly recommend Melinda and her clinic for adults and babies alike, for those in acute pain or those just needing an extra inch in their spine. You will be amazed just how powerful osteopathy can be in the right hands!
February 14th 2018



January 30th 2018 Five stars of course for Melinda, who has been treating me for over twenty years now. She has a real talent for spotting the precise
location of the source of the pain and she moves your limbs gently or massages your neck or back to readjust the alignment and give you relief and throughout the treatment you feel relaxed and relieved of stress.


November 10th 2018 Dr Melinda is an amazing professional and a lovely person! I’ve suffered from the shoulder pain for three months and after several
sessions with Melinda I feel absolutely fantastic and I can’t thank her enough!

someone in my eighties than early twenties. Melinda was amazing! She was the first person to assess my whole body and person rather than focusing solely on a symptomatic shoulder blade. A year later I was a completely different person and have been pretty much pain free ever since. Nowadays I attend Fulham Osteopaths once every couple of months for a once over or more frequently if I've a specific injury that needs attending. The entire team at Fulham Osteopaths are a joy and I've always felt in good hands when Melinda has been away and I've needed to be seen by someone else. The whole practice are so dedicated to the care of their patients and go above and beyond for you. I'm a complete osteopathy convert now!


March 2nd 2018 I love being seen by Mindy, I know I can trust her to listen, understand and deal with my pain – no matter how and where it’s
happening. Of course I recommend her.

March 2nd 2018 Melinda is a wonderful osteopath who looks at the whole person to understand a problem. After only two sessions I felt a tremendous
change! Highly recommend!


March 2nd 2018 I have been going to see Melinda for osteopathic treatment over a number of years now, whenever I have had a problem with my back,
neck, knees etc or even just for an MOT! She understands the body so well. I have great confidence in her skills; in fact I think she has
magic hands! After a treatment my body invariably feels lighter, more mobile and my overall state of mind improves. I am so happy that I found osteopathy through her as I am sure it has prevented having to undergo more invasive medical procedures.


February 26th 2018 I could not recommend Melinda more, she has treated me and my little one with amazing results. She is a great osteopath as well as a
lovely person. The whole team is great and very professional

February 24th 2018 Mindy is truly amazing and you can see results from day one. My daughter has been a patient since she was 2 months old and I was
terrified to take her to an osteopath as I frankly had no clue what to expect. Mindy kept me always informed of each step and kept us all
calm and reassured; once we actually had the first session I was super happy and I truly look forward to seeing her next and see our

calm and reassured; once we actually had the first session I was super happy and I truly look forward to seeing her next and see our daughter thriving thanks to her treatments.


February 23rd 2018 I saw Melinda for a last minute emergency appointment because my osteopath was unwell. We only had a short appointment but she
was immediately able to identify the problems and work in an efficient, careful and effective way, to not only alleviate my pain but educate me about the problem and what to do about it. I would wholeheartedly recommend her and her skilled team at Fulham Oesteopaths. Many thanks!


February 23rd 2018 I have been seeing Melinda for years - both for myself and my two young sons. She is an amazing osteopath and I can't believe my luck
of finding someone so good locally. She has helped me over the years with my back problems, addressing the underlying posture issue,
to an extend that I seldom suffer anymore. I always enjoy my sessions with her - she has a warm, nurturing manner and our chats are very insightful. And she really excels in treating children - her manner puts them at ease and she gets them to stay still for an hour which is a feat with my active boys! Cannot recommend her more highly!


February 22nd 2018 I went to Melinda after weeks in pain from my left hip. She was able to help relieve the pain and after three visits it was much
improved. She was so good at explaining what nerve was trapped and traced it back to my spine and showed myself and my partner a couple of hip manoeuvres to help relieve the discomfort at home. She is an excellent therapist with a lovely manner and helps to put you at ease with her confident, knowledgeable,caring and reassuring approach. I would thoroughly recommend her.


Excellent treatment by the very gentle and perceptive Melinda . Would ( and do!) recommend


February 22nd 2018
February 22nd 2018 I am the mother of six year old twins who were born extremely premature. Because of the prematurity one of them has complex
medical needs. I have been visiting Melinda at Fulham Osteopaths regularly since my little boy came home from the hospital. Melinda is the most professional, experienced, kind osteopath I know. Through the years she has helped my son immensely with many of his health issues (such as postural and movement difficulties, reflux, and sleeping). Melinda has the most gentle and healing touch and my boy is always looking forward to seeing her. She is incredibly knowledgeable and generous with her time; she even liaises with the other professionals who help my son offering her precious expertise. I can not recommend Melinda highly enough. The practice she runs is an oasis of peace and calm, and from the moment we walk through the doors and we are greeted by the ever smiling Angela we feel serene and well looked after.


February 20th 2018 I booked an appointment after having been recommended by a dear friend. Immediately I felt at home and had a warm welcome. I’ve
been treated by Melinda, who was the warmest, sweetest and most caring osteopath I have ever met. She didn’t see the individual problem, but instead looked at the whole picture and so all of my body and through some gentle treatment and explanation as she went along, she simply fixed me! I remember limping into the practice that morning and walking out straight upright and pain free. I was impressed with the whole approach and immediate results and also that they didn’t try to sell me another booking at all, instead Melinda just gave me a warm hug and wished me to stay well. Will definitely and wholeheartedly recommend Fulham Osteopaths to anyone who is looking for treatment by safe, competent and honest hands.




February 20th 2018 Mindi has been of great help with my baby daughter. She gave her a cranial treatment and supported her development. She's been an
amazing support in correcting her flat head and always provided a sound advise on whatever we needed in terms of holistic treatments, practitioners etc. I believe my baby daughter became much calmer and content thanks to our visits to Mindi. Her calm and gentle approach always put me and my daughter at ease. You know you are in safe hands with Mindi. She is highly experienced and professional. I would recommend her wholeheartedly.


February 19th 2018 I have now had 2 appointments with Melinda and both have been nothing short of superb. My wife and I took our 1 week old baby in
for some treatment and were astounded with the immediate results. Melinda was informative about her profession, in a way that we could understand, and was equally informative on subjects outside of her remit that have proved more than useful when caring for a newborn. Encouragingly, Melinda was also generous with her time and extended one of our appointments free of charge (into her tea break) so that she could continue helping our child. Overall, the appointments have been thoroughly satisfying, informative and worthwhile. I wholeheartedly recommend Melinda and this practice to anyone who wants to see results for themselves or loved ones.


February 19th I wholeheartedly recommend Melinda Cotton as an excellent osteopath. She has helped me in times of acute pain and also worked
really effectively on underlying conditions in a way that has really improved my quality of life. Having visited many osteopaths in the past, none compare to Melinda.


February 18th 2018 Melinda's treatment is gentle yet extremely effective. After breast feeding my two children I had developed a hunch which Melinda
managed to reverse. I like that she talks me through what she's doing and why, and offers practical guidance on what I can do myself to improve and maintain my back health, for example giving me exercises and tips for my desk at work. I am notably more flexible and resilient post a treatment with Melinda and would highly recommend her to anyone with a back problem or looking for preventative treatment to maintain back health.


February 16th 2018 So helpful and very knowledgeable! Melinda and Simon worked together to help my 3 month old with an overly sensitive gag reflex
and other tension which is now much improved. Thank you!

February 16th 2018 Due to many years experience of Melinda Cotton's treatment of me and my physical ailments, I feel merited to write this. Melinda is, in
my view,not only a highly qualified and skilled practitioner, she also has the right personality. She is sensitive, positive and positive and
although highly professional she projects an aura of healing qualities. I feel safe in her hands, I feel cared for and held.

As a midwife I really understand the value of good osteopathic treatment. Melinda Cotton and her colleagues at Fulham Osteopaths are professional. intuitive and first class practitioners. Whether it is for my own health or that of my clients, I have no hesitation at all in recommending both Melinda and Fulham osteopaths.


February 15th 2018 Our little boy Ethan has been seeing Melinda for several months as He has flat head syndrome. She has been fantastic and he has made
great progress. We are very happy with the service and are blessed to have found her.

February 15th 2018 I have known Melinda for many years (as both a patient and the parent of a patient) and I have found her to be a truly gifted healer.
Melinda creates a warm and safe environment that allows you to feel someone is really listening to you and you are in good and knowledgeable hands. She is considerate and extremely effective expert. I would highly recommend Melinda.


February 15th 2018 My family and I have used Melinda Cotton at Fulham Osteopaths for 10 years. She is an amazing practitioner who has treated us for a
variety of injuries and acute conditions. I have recommended friends and colleagues to her over the years who have all sung her praises.

February 14th 2018 Melinda is wonderful! She is an excellent listener as well as a keen observer and this translates into well targeted, successful treatment.
For more sensitive patients, or patients in severe pain, Melinda maintains a gentle touch and will not go beyond their comfort zone. She
has treated my two children, my husband and me with great success. One of my children is highly distractible, yet Melinda has managed to work with him rather than against him to ensure a successful session. My other child was nervous at first, but Melinda quickly put him at ease by assuring him that she would always ask his permission before doing anything and there would be no "surprises". The reception team are very helpful and very sympathetic should you be in severe pain and in need of an emergency appointment. I highly recommend Melinda and her team!


I have been taking my newborn baby girl to Fulham osteopaths to see Melinda Cotton. Melinda’s warm, caring and nurturing approach has helped both baby and me tremendously. She is extremely knowledgable about all aspects of physiological wellbeing for babies and could pick up on subtle issues that can impact the baby’s optimal development.


January 30th 2018 Melinda's passion for and incredible expertise in osteopathy was obvious from the very first minute I met her. With more than 30 years
of experience in the field, including teaching at one of the most prestigious colleges of osteopathy in Britain, she brought an extraordinary set of skills, professionalism and calmness into her treatment. She has a fantastic touch, knows exactly where to work on without having to point anything out leaving no stones unturned. I left the treatment feeling taller and definitely more mobile. I would highly recommend Melinda and her clinic for adults and babies alike, for those in acute pain or those just needing an extra inch in their spine. You will be amazed just how powerful osteopathy can be in the right hands!

January 30th 2018 Five stars of course for Melinda, who has been treating me for over twenty years now. She has a real talent for spotting the precise
location of the source of the pain and she moves your limbs gently or massages your neck or back to readjust the alignment and give you relief and throughout the treatment you feel relaxed and relieved of stress.
