At Osteopathy At Home, our Osteopath Stevenage and Hitchin Osteopath Home Visit Service, our approaches are designed for all types of people, whether you are in a physical or sedentary job and lifestyle. The service takes away all the difficulties of going to a clinic, while still experiencing the same level of Professional Osteopathic Service received if attending a clinic.
I visited Michael following a recommendation from a friend. My previous osteopath had 'maintained' the problems with my lower back. Michael's approach is not only to relieve discomfort, but to work on weak areas and improve muscle tone and flexibility. We have made steady progress and I am now able to undertake fairly strenuous walks e.g. in the Lake District and still be mobile and pain-free at the end of them. He is patient and always explains why we are doing particular exercises and ensures that I am doing them correctly. Michael's approach is holistic. We have discussed other areas of my health and he has suggested complementary supplements to improve these.

I've employed the services of Osteopaths on and off for over 30 years. Michael Parr is certainly one of the best: he is very professional, and extremely effective. Michael strikes the perfect balance between massage, physical manipulation, and restorative exercises. I no longer see him as just someone to turn to when I have acute pain (although I do turn to him in those situations!), but as a trusted adviser and coach, helping me move on to the next physical target that I want to achieve. Since visiting him I can see clear and distinct improvement in my overall health, directly attributable to his methods, input, advice and continued guidance.
1.5 Hour Diagnostic Consultation
For those who want the most from their time with a practitioner
This 1.5 hour consultation will be one of the most detailed consultations you have had by any health care provider. It will focus around your musculoskeletal health, but with a broader overview.
I would unreservedly recommend this sensible and realistic treatment programme to any severe, long term sufferer looking to make a real difference to their life.
