Plymouth Marjon University has launched its brand-new osteopathy clinic. The clinic is open to bookings from the public for appointments and supports students’ practical learning.
Osteopathy is a gentle approach to muscular and joint pain, injuries, and ongoing medical conditions. Clients visiting the clinic may suffer from joint or muscle pain; sports injuries; repetitive strain injuries; and recurring headaches.
Clients may also manage a range of medical conditions including digestion issues; fibromyalgia; migraines; rheumatic pain; and sciatica, through osteopathic treatments.
Marjon has a burgeoning reputation throughout the South West for its health and wellbeing courses. The University is set to launch 12 new healthcare courses in 2023, with a focus on placements in community health spaces such as St Luke’s Hospice.
The new clinic, which features eight consultation rooms, offers a free first appointment lasting up to 90 minutes, with subsequent appointments costing only £15 for 45 minutes. The clinic offers morning, afternoon, and evening appointments to fit in with everyone’s schedule.
James Nicholson, a returning client to the Marjon Osteopathy Clinic, said: “I’ve used the clinic to treat muscle tension and historical sporting injuries. They are great at relieving pain and helping me manage muscle issues, all with really positive customer service.”
John Evans, Osteopathic Medicine programme leader at Plymouth Marjon University, added: “We are excited to welcome clients into our new space and continue to provide a high-quality service for the Plymouth community. Our clinic provides financially accessible treatment to the community whilst providing our students with valuable professional experience.”
Students on the Master of Osteopathic Medicine (MOst) use their expert skills and comprehensive training to deliver treatments to clients. Marjon’s thriving community of clients continues to grow with the expansion and relocation of its trusted clinic.
The MOst is a rigorous 4-year course which enables students to become registered Osteopaths with the General Osteopathic Council. Applicants with a wide variety of qualifications or experience are considered. Keep up to date with the healthcare courses here.
New clients are welcome to make an appointment and join the team at the new campus to explore treatments and check out the modern clinic. Since September, the clinic has had over 400 bookings and nearly 150 new patients.
The Clinic is open from Monday to Friday, 9:30 am to 5:30 pm. Find more information and book an appointment here.
