We are open
We are now open for appointments and hope that you have remained well during the lockdown period.
In line with the government, and our governing bodies, the Anna Chapman Osteopathic practise will re-open with restricted treatment times. Appointments are available for patients who are not displaying any Covid-19 symptoms and are not shielding.
Treatments will be on the hour for half an hour to reduce person to person contact. For further information as to what to expect during your treatment please click to see our Covid-19 virus information sheet.
For appointments please call 07800 870191 or 01992 503399. I will ask a few triage questions and discuss your appointment.
As a certified Osteopath, I provide patients with a welcoming and comfortable environment for treating all types of physical pains, aches and injuries.
Pain is a warning signal that something is wrong in the body. It is the body's natural defense mechanism to alert you to a problem. Osteopaths can diagnose the cause of pain and can help reduce the level of your pain and suffering, whether it is a long-standing condition or a new injury.
Based in the historic town of Hertford, Hertfordshire, our well established clinic (also known as the Anna Chapman Osteopathic clinic) has been practising for over 25 years
Anna Chapman - Osteopath
I trained at the British College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM) graduating in 1995 with a BSC in Osteopathic Medicine.
Whether you visit me for a one-off treatment or a longer course of action, I make sure my patients play an active role in their recovery so they can remain pain-free once treatment ends.
Since I set up my private practise over 25 years ago, I have offered the highest standards of treatment and patient care and am committed to my clients health and long-term wellness.
what is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a manual treatment that helps relieve many musculoskeletal conditions.
Osteopaths can successfully treat many types of pain. Whether you are suffering with back ache, work strain, postural problems or pregnancy pains, osteopaths can help diagnose the cause of the pain and help reduce the level of pain and suffering.
Osteopaths work to restore the natural balance of the body using gentle massage, mobilisations and manipulations to increase the mobility of the joints, ease muscle tension, increase blood supply and help your own bodies healing mechanisms. We also offer exercises and post treatment advice to prevent symptoms reoccurring.
what is an Osteopath?
Osteopathy is a natural manual therapy which seeks to overcome the wide range of problems resulting from disturbances of the body’s framework and moving parts.
Essentially osteopathy is a way of detecting and treating damaged tissues such as muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints. When the body is balanced and efficient, it will function with the minimum of wear and tear allowing the individual to feel healthy and well and live life to the full.
what happens at the first visit?
When you first visit an osteopath they will spend time taking a detailed medical history including important information about lifestyle and diet.
An examination will be performed to determine the cause of pain and help the osteopath determine the cause of the pain and help the osteopath decide on the best form of treatment for that individual.
New Patient Appointment - £55 for 45 minute consultation and treatment.
Existing Patient - £45 for 30 minute treatment.
what treatments do osteopaths use?
Treatment techniques used by osteopaths include massage and mobilisations to
affected muscles and joints, and gentle manipulation to increase joint mobility
After treatment advice will be given on exercises, diet, and lifestyle changes to
prevent further re-occurrence.
What They’re Saying
I first visited Anna for Osteopathic treatment in 2006 and since then, she has been my first port of call any time I injure myself or suffer from nagging aches and pains that I want sorting. Anna quickly assesses the situation, provides effective treatments along with good and honest advice - the ultimate professional! I would highly recommend her and have done so on a number of occasions to friends and family who have been thrilled with their results too.
