Applying osteopathic principles and techniques which are informed by the body’s structure and function - I help people better understand their body, overcome pain and establish efficient movement patterns so that they can live their optimal lives”.

"I had an extremely painful sore neck and right shoulder and within one session Omer managed to significantly reduce the pain and improve the mobility of my neck. I was truly amazed. The second session I had yesterday was equally beneficial. I can highly recommend Omer. He is an extremely dedicated professional and very conscientious with a pleasant personality." Edward K

"Amazingly impressed by Valentina’s ability to read my body and treat my neck pain. Highly recommended. Very light touch and very powerful treatment." Gilles C

"Valentina is fantastic. I brought my baby for a few sessions as his movements were somewhat asymmetrical. Valentina identified quickly the issue, and worked on it until solved. I could see the improvement since the first session! She handled my baby with such care and sweetness that my baby also loved it and felt at ease. The room was very warm and prepared for a newborn, which made the experience very enjoyable and also relaxing for both the parent and the newborn. The feedback on video is fantastic, because it allowed me to share it with the dad. We will come back if any issue arises in the future!" Aurora R

" Excellent Osteopaths. I saw Valentina. I came in with a back injury, barely able to move, sit, stand or walk. Within a few weeks, with a few excellent treatment sessions and great advice / home exercises, I’m now 100% better. Excellent follow up with a quick video message to cover the key recommendations from our first session (what a brilliant idea - when you are in pain you don’t pay attention to everything you are told) and I have had several follow up messages from Valentina, with further suggestions to help maintain my wellbeing, encourage further improvement and prevent a recurrent injury. Highly recommend!" Sophie P

I would highly recommend Giulia, we sought her advice for our baby girl who was experiencing episodes of colic since birth. She was able to pinpoint the problem very quickly, and we’ve noticed improvement after each session. She gave us clear and simple instructions to follow at home, to enhance and maintain results achieved during the sessions. She is extremely professional, knowledgeable and reassuring. - Elena Z

Baby and I attended the clinic following a glowing recommendation. We had a brilliant experience with Giulia. We saw improvements after every session - she works wonders. Thank you so much! - Tajinder K

I have been using Fulham Osteopaths for about a year and I couldn't recommend them more highly! As an office worker with occasionally-acute muscular pains in my lower back (especially since the start of lockdown), Fulham Osteopaths have done a very professional, caring and competent job at looking after my health. I will definitely keep using them as I go back to the office and to exercising regularly again. - Andrea S

"Melinda has been amazing! She’s really helped me to recover postpartum and I wish I visited her during my pregnancy. I had quite a few complicated issues due to my pregnancy and she really helped me to feel like myself again. My postpartum recovery wouldn’t have been the same without her. Thank you so much with your magic touch!" - Ellie Z

"I cannot recommend Melinda at Fulham Osteopaths highly enough. Thankfully she was able to identify and treat an issue with my son early enough so that it now won’t cause any long term issues for him. How lucky we are to have access to such a brilliant osteopath for our babies. Thank you so much Melinda." - Jessica B

"Faced with the dilemma of finding another trusted osteopath, after the retirement of my Harley Street osteopath who had treated me for over 30 years, Melinda Cotton and her dedicated team at Fulham Osteopaths were recommended to me by my daughter-in-law. I am very pleased to have made this decision 3 years ago, to try out Fulham Osteopaths. In my case, it was a relief to find an osteopath of Melinda's calibre and her gentle realignment treatment continuous to works wonders for me. I feel completely at ease in her hands and trust her judgement implicitly. I can highly recommend Melinda." - Yvonne B

"From the moment my client and her newborn baby met Melinda I watched a sense of calmness descend on a pair of troubled shoulders. We were all made to feel welcome and instantly knew we were in the best hands possible. Melinda has the most incredible knowledge built up from years of clearly loving what she’s does, and is a delight to watch as she expertly “felt” her way over the baby, in order to diagnose how best to help her feel less stressed from a quick birth. She explained every step of what she was doing, took great care to ensure both mum and her baby were comfortable at all times and happily answered every question we had. The practice has kept all COVID-19 sanitation measures in place and strived to keep all clients distanced and safe. I highly recommended not only Melinda but the whole of the practice." - Claire S

"I have been attending Fulham Osteopaths for nearly 21 years over which time Melinda has been my saviour, successfully treating a variety of conditions one of which I had previously been suffering from for 16 years! She is extremely professional and excellent at both diagnosing and treating. I highly recommend Fulham Osteopaths." - Jane R

"I would highly recommend Fulham Osteopaths and particularly Melinda who has seen me through 2 pregnancies, intense bouts of training for sports and helped my son with treatment for tongue tie and flat head syndrome. She is incredibly knowledgable and personable, and her treatments are gentle yet extremely effective. I have hobbled into the clinic from a taxi in agony only to walk home happily half an hour later. I would have a session with her over a massage anyday!" - Emily M
