‘I have been a back sufferer for many years. This deteriorated to the point where I could barely walk, or get in and out of a car, and no standing position could be described as comfortable. Jolyon Livingston was recommended to me and he cured the problem. I still go to him regularly for an ‘overhaul’ and this keeps me in good shape and when occasionally, I have a set back, he can resolve it quickly. I cannot speak too highly of him and I would recommend him to anyone, which I have done. My grateful thanks go to Jolyon and all his staff.’
Beryl Hudson, Highworth.

‘If you have any aches or pains this is the only place to visit. Small and friendly but with a big reputation and great results.’
Keith Wilson

‘From my experiences shadowing Mr Livingston, it was clear that …the patient is listened to and all options are discussed…

…Hence, after obtaining this information and observing a number of consultations at the Cricklade Practice, I came to the conclusion that I would recommend osteopathy to my future patients…

…To conclude, I believe osteopathy has a major role to play in the management of chronic illnesses. Its simple yet effective technique, coupled with its ‘whole person’ approach confirms my view that it should be respected and used by patients and doctors alike.’

‘Jo was recommended to me by a family friend who was fully aware of my degree of scepticism. I had been suffering with pain in my lower back for a few years and over a period of time I had gradually lost some movement in my shoulders and neck. I found Jo to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I had a noticeable reduction of pain very early in my treatment and was amazed at how quickly my lost movement had returned. His advice and exercises have been particularly helpful in retaining the benefits of the treatment. Needless to say I am no longer a sceptic and I would highly recommend Jo and his practice to anyone.’
John Harrod

‘I first visited the Practice and saw Jolyon Livingston when suffering from some severe low back pain. The highly effective remedial treatment  I received included a tailored combination of manipulation, massage and some ultrasound which within a short period had me effectively ‘up and running’ again. What I also found invaluable was the future-focused preventative advice given to me, aimed at providing me with a set of specific exercises to ensure that my back stayed pain free. I have also visited the practice for help with a case of “frozen shoulder”, and the therapy and attention I received was equally helpful. I would highly recommend the Cricklade Osteopathic Health Practice to anyone wanting first class help.’

‘I visit Jo about every three months and without these visits I am sure I would not be as mobile as I am. The treatment I get is wonderful and makes me feel both fitter and healthier and enables me to keep active. We all have some responsibility for our own health and mobility and seeing Jo regularly is part of this.’
Joan Townsend

‘My wife, Linda, and I have been attending Cricklade Osteopathic Clinic for more than thirty years, mainly seeing Jo Livingston. We have both had various back and neck problems. Jo has always managed to get our backs back in line after a few treatments. We honestly don’t know what we would do without this kind of treatment, as, on some occasions you think something else might be wrong with you but nearly always the problem goes once the back is sorted out!

My wife’s late father, mother and aunt all used Jo as did my late father. My sister also uses Jo from time to time. All are more than happy with the results of Jo’s manipulations. It is with pleasure and confidence that we recommend anyone to give Jo and the team a go.’
John, Blunsdon

‘I’ve been a long term bad back sufferer and Jo has been a tremendous help over the years – always prepared to put in that extra bit of effort to help me. Jo is not just a VERY knowledgeable chap in his field, but also very personable and understanding. I cannot recommend him enough.’
