About the Clinic

Situated on the beautiful Bletchingdon village green in rural North Oxfordshire, our clinic provides an idyllic and tranquil backdrop to help enhance the effectiveness of our natural health therapies.

Sympathetically renovated in 2000 using natural materials throughout, a mezzanine gives an interior spaciousness that belies its quaint exterior. The addition of the community kitchen garden surrounding the building adds charm as well as community interest. These soothing surroundings evoke a healing ambience for our visiting clients, perfectly enhancing all of the therapies.

Parking

On street parking is available and an access ramp is provided for wheelchair users.

As far as possible, we ask you please not to park directly outside the clinic building, but to give respectful space to the farmhouse across the road, which sees a lot of farm vehicle traffic. With many thanks.

What to expect

New patient info and forms

Depending on which therapist you see, the treatment process will involve slightly different things. There will be an initial consultation in all cases, though for massage and beauty, this takes the form of a short questionnaire regarding your health history.

The osteopaths, acupuncturist and nutritionist will all take a more detailed case history regarding the problem you are presenting with, any accidents or traumas incurred previously and an overview of your organ systems (eg, do you experience indigestion or headaches). Some things, which may seem totally unrelated to you, may make some connected sense to a natural therapist!

If you see more than one COTG therapist, we will ask your permission to share this information and our clinical findings and diagnosis, so that your treatment can be seamless and there is little time wasted with repetition.

For some, but not all of the therapies, you will be asked to remove some of your clothes, so that assessment and treatment is optimised. Please feel free to bring shorts, and also to tell us if there is anything you are not comfortable with, for whatever reason. We respect all of your wishes and our aim is to help you to feel more comfortable.

If you are seeing Hannah for hydrotherapy, please feel free to wear leggings and a t-shirt in the water too.

We take our professionalism very serioulsy and uphold the regulation of our governing bodies.
