At health provides osteopathy in Covent Garden. We believe that your health is the most important thing you have in life, after all, you only get one body. Therefore we want to take a moment to talk about some of our principles, how we believe healthcare should be and what you can expect to experience should you choose At Health to help you on your journey to optimum health.
The first thing you can expect is a partner for your journey out of pain. We appreciate how scary being in pain can be, whether it’s your first ever injury or you’ve had to cope with it for decades. It’s because of this that you can expect to receive support from us whenever you need it.
The second thing we strive to do is educate. This comes in a variety of forms. Whether it’s through The Rehab Centre where we bring you educational content and rehabilitation advice, or what to do day to day to help reduce the risk of pain, we understand that the more you know about your pain, the less it will scare you.
A promise from our practitioners that they will continue to learn and do their upmost to constantly give you the best care available, and when they don’t feel they can, a promise that they will help you find someone who can.

As a lover of everything sport and exercise, Jake enjoys applying himself to help individuals from different sporting backgrounds. He has been fortunate enough to work alongside professional boxers, rugby players, footballers and numerous personal trainers. Jake believes there is huge value to osteopathy in the sporting field including injury prevention and performance optimisation. Although he finds this particular aspect of clinical practice rewarding, his expertise is by no means limited to athletes.
As an osteopath Jake approaches whole person and will not just treat your symptoms. He utilises the innate ability of the body to heal and adapt to overcome various pain presentations. The diversity between each patient and their pain presentation is reflected by the management approach.
However, as a skilled osteopathic clinician it will always include some form of manual therapy, often supplemented by a progressive rehabilitation protocol. His knowledgeable and empathetic approach ensures you receive comprehensive treatment and a full opportunity for recovery. As a fitness enthusiast, there aren’t many sports he doesn’t enjoy. Having played Football at a high level, he has also consistently participated in Tennis, Squash, Rugby and Cycling. He now just does sport recreationally and combines this with gym work to get his fitness fix. He has also recently conducted research into the role of manual therapy in the management of chronic respiratory conditions, with findings he intends to implement in practice.
