I first visited Lisa when I was having problems with my neck and shoulders. After a couple of visits the difference was remarkable and an ongoing maintenance programme has meant that I have been trouble free ever since. I have had no hesitation in recommending Lisa to my friends and family all of whom have been impressed with Lisa’s ability and total professionalism.

Lisa's excellent assessments and Cranial Osteopathy treatments have really helped reduce and minimise the chronic pain I have suffered with Trigeminal Neuralgia. Since seeing Lisa, from January 2015, when I was in a really bad way with constant headaches and neuralgia pain on the left side of my face, I have seen a dramatic improvement and have been able to take up cycling and trekking. Lisa has been very thorough with her advice and providing much detail. I have been so impressed with her knowledge, expertise and ability to address the pain through treatments and acupuncture. Plus rapidly treating my accident prone 20 year old son for shoulder and foot injuries. I feel Lisa is a top class Osteopath and I definitely recommend Lisa.

Whilst suffering from Shin Splints I arranged an appointment and after just one treatment I was given advice and exercises to do at home along with a cold compress. I was very pleased to see that after just one week I was back to normal. Lisa is a very friendly and welcoming professional whom I would highly recommend.

Lisa is an excellent, kind, warm and wonderful osteopath. When I first saw Lisa I had chronic lower back pain and at the end of my tether. With her help and guidance I now have the full range of movement again. An extremely trustworthy, dedicated and true professional who I would highly recommend.

I have been attending Lisa's Bodybalance classes for almost 4 years now. This is one of the most enjoyable and beneficial exercise classes I've ever participated in. Lisa's style of delivery is non-judgemental and sensitive and her own level of fitness and flexibility inspirational! Thank you Lisa for my increased flexibility and stonger core ... see you on Monday evening!.

After damaging the ligaments surrounding my coccyx and getting little help from the NHS other than ridiculously strong painkillers that could put a horse to sleep I went to see my trusty 'miracle worker' Lisa Ives. In 3 sessions involving acupuncture, manipulation and ultra sound I am back on my feet. I am astonished with the knowledge she holds and she talks to you in a way which you understand the issue without all the professional jargon. She really is a credit to her profession. Yes seeing a private osteopath is more expensive than the NHS but the service you receive is outstanding. Thank you Lisa.

As an avid gym goer, I do occasionally suffer muscular injuries, perhaps more often then others due to not being able to recognise when my body has had enough. Perhaps, that's a story for another time. As insignificant, as these often are, not being able to have the daily gym session, brings the world crashing. Well, not really, but is sure does seem that way to me. Everything what Lisa does, is patient orientated, starting with an ease of making appointment, take your pick: call, send an email or text; whatever means you choose rest assured you'll get a swift response. And there's the knowledge and expertise, second to none doesn't even begin to describe it. Always informative, eloquently describing the diagnosis and proposed course of action, empathetic and understanding. Honestly, what more could you ask for?

I pulled a muscle in my lower back over weekend, by Monday morning getting out of bed was a painful series of movements that took me several minutes. I checked internet for local osteopaths, saw another friend had liked the site, and contacted Lisa that morning. Within 5 minutes I was called back and an appointment organised that afternoon with Tish. I can't say enough about what a difference that first one hour consultation made, absolutely brilliant, and after treatment and being given some simple exercises my recovery was very quick. I was back at work the next day and after a second treatment was soon back to normal movement. I'd say to anyone suffering serious back pain and hoping painkillers or GP visit will solve it that this service is money well spent for a quick recovery. I hope I never need to use these services again but I know who I will be calling if I do. Thank you Tish.

I took my 20 month son to see Lisa Ives after he suffered a series of painful ear infections. He also had never been a good sleeper. A friend suggested cranial osteopathy as an option. My son is a bundle of energy and personality and I worried how I would keep him still for the sessions. I needn't have worried Lisa is so kind and patient. She took the time to get to know my son and his individual interests. She treated him with a great respect and in return my son trusted her and enjoyed being in her company. The treatments greatly helped my son and you could see he was visibly more relaxed and happy at the end of the three sessions. I can really recommend Lisa she is an outstanding practitioner..

Lisa Ives is a professional lady in every sense of the word. I wish I had found her after I hurt my back the first time, because with Lisa's knowledge, time and care I feel it would have healed properly. Lisa works to find the problem, usually with precision, but can also offer advice to help you help yourself. Physio is good but they only look at one area and often there are connecting issues, with Lisa everything is taken into account. Although with my condition there is no quick fix, after a visit with Lisa the relief is a little piece of heaven. The best thing for me is Lisa really listens and does her upmost to help you in any way she can.

Lisa is a lady at the top of her game. After only 3 appointments I was fighting fit and ready for action. She takes time to find out what is causing the issue and then fixes it quickly and very effectively. I highly recommend Lisa

Lisa Ives who runs the business is a first class osteopath. She listens to the client, puts her finger on the problem area (literally) and designs the most appropriate treatment package. It really works! My wife, my mother in law, my son in law and myself have all benefitted from Lisa's tender care. I strongly recommend her - 5 star.

I have used Lisa at Essential Health Therapies twice for injury rehabilitation - for upper back pain and a knee problem associated with running. In both instances I found Lisa very personable, professional and competent. She took the time to understand my problem, my lifestyle and then worked with me to decide the best course of rehabilitation, including exercises and changes to my training plan. I have no hesitation in recommending Lisa as a professional, caring Osteopath.

Lisa Ives at Essential Health Therapies (EHT), has provided a fantastic service to all members of my family. I had treatment for minor sport injuries and now always recommend her. Following surgery to remove pins fixing my sons broken leg (femur), I knew Lisa was the right person to help him. Treatments took place at a time convenient to us enabling my son in year 11 to miss the minimum amount of school. In one session Lisa restored sufficient mobility to my sons leg that he could return to school, and within 3 months of treatment starting my son successfully took part in county Hockey trials, being selected to represent Hampshire as U17 Hockey Goalkeeper. I have subsequently and will continue to recommend EHT to all my friends and work colleagues. All those that have been treated by EHT have always spoken highly of Lisa and the treatment they have received.

Lisa Ives runs an extremely professional business offering osteopathy, sports therapy, acupuncture and aromatherapy. I first visited her to enlist her help in "sorting out" some issues with my neck and shoulders. She very quickly relieved my symptoms and, unlike other practitioners I have used, did not attempt to prolong the treatment. I now visit her for aromatherapy massage which has kept my symptoms at bay for well over a year. I have recommended her to several friends who have also benefited from her "magic touch"
