2 month old daughter as been told she had tightness in her back and shoulders. There seems to be lots of doctors available here who each have different medical skills. varying in age as well. My osteopath look rather young but he know his stuff and has really helped my little girl with her balance and preparing to have her tongue-tie fixed. I would definitely go back if I ever feel the need to . Decent prices as well so not overcharged for what you get. The Parking can be difficult as is pretty much down a street, but both times I went I was lucky to get into the parking on the side of the house.

We had a great experience with osteopath Teddy Brooks - reliable, and with a golden touch. You see immediate results.

Thierry Clerc - Homeopath & Metabolic Balance Nutritionist

116 Ramsden Square, Cambridge CB4 2BL, UK – 01223 655300

I am more than pleased to have engaged in your Thierry Clerc's Metabolic Balance Program. Having met with you earlier this year and investigated the art of helping me to lose weight I decided to employ your course of action. I must say I was amazed by simply putting together a program based upon my blood sample that would actually work. I stand here today extremely happy to have hit my target to shed 35lbs in three months. All without ever being hungry. I have never in my life been on a diet but conversely the eating plan you developed for me was spot on and frankly I was a bit skeptical at the start. But your plan for me came up trumps and I now have a plan for life. My body feels extremely Better and Healthier. I will not hesitate to continue to recommend your services in the future. Thank you for your great work and timely performance

I initially came to see Mr Clerc about 8 or 9 years ago when I suffered from a severe illness. His approach, based on nutrition and re-balancing the body's ability to heal and function, has greatly helped me. I still come and see him about once or twice a year when I visit my family in Cambridge. I feel that this helps me to stay healthy and well.
