Some kind words from our patients

My treatment at the Ilkley Osteopathic Practice is always transforming. I come in like a wreck and go out physically and mentally 100%. The professionalism and knowledge of the practitioners is second to none!

Lisa Sunderland

A very friendly and professional service. After many months of shoulder problems, two weeks after treatment at this practice relieved me of my discomfort. I always recommend them to friends and family as I know they can usually relieve most aches and pains.

They have helped both my son and husband who have a number of back and leg problems.


I have been coming to the Ilkley Osteopathic Practice for 2 years now, and every time I come, I am met with the kind and welcoming staff and a very warm and friendly atmosphere.

All the Osteopaths are very kind, professional and courteous. I can't recommend this place more!

Gemma Mitchell

I have been a patient of Amos for many years. He has treated various stiff areas giving me much relief and freedom of movement, especially for my neck.

Without this treatment, I would not be able to still be driving. A wonderful service, so helpful to an 88 year-old!
