Registered Osteopath- Philip Ashcroft

Philip founded Osteopath Covent Garden and is one of the leading Central London osteopaths. He is our osteopath on Thursday and Saturday, offering very early and very late appointments 07:30-21:00 (inclusive)
An osteopath with consulting rooms for private treatment in Covent Garden and Trafalgar Square since 2008, he is trusted and considered a ‘safe pair of hands’ by many, including the Government and show business.
Phil is extremely knowledgeable in general spinal and peripheral joint pain- i.e back and neck pain, sometimes accompanied with symptoms into the arms and legs. He has a particular interest in headache, migraine, intervertebral disc injuries, sleep hygiene, and the wide-ranging effects of stress upon the body. He is skilled in the ‘vocabulary of pain’, putting patients at ease through a clear explanation of their problem. Osteopaths learn advanced soft-tissue techniques for four years, and many of Philip’s treatments can involve quite robust massage when this suits the patient and their presenting complaint.

The professional fee for all appointments is £70.00, for circa 50 minutes. As with your GP or dentist, the length of appointment will always vary slightly depending upon the presenting complaint. Following the taking of your medical case history, your first appointment shall include a full treatment, provided that treatment is clinically appropriate -i.e safe and right for you. On extremely rare occasions we are obliged to discharge a patient without treatment and in this case the fee is chargeable at our discretion.
