I went to see John Mallinder for help with my back and legs issues. The treatment room was spotlessly clean and the treatment couch was very comfy and also very clean. He gave a very good thorough consultation and really listened to my concerns. Over time he built trust with me and gave me the best treatment i have ever had from an Osteopath including acupuncture which i feared because of a previous bad experience with a not so kind osteopath. I was dealt with respect, and kindness and compassion. And he actually prompted me to make some small changes to my lifestyle to promote a further better result to healing. I listened and over time achieved those things. For that i am really grateful. I am 100% better now. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him. thank you John, from Corinne.

Gervais was kind, thorough and extremely professional. He genuinely cared about my pain and finding the root of the problem. I would describe the service at Osteopathy London as going above and beyond. I highly recommend Osteopath London to anyone who is in pain or have a niggling reoccurring problem as the level of care and empathy is really high and makes you feel reassured. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Highly recommended! The treatments from Gervais Roubeix helped me massively. And thanks to his help, I managed to get back to a healthy condition even quicker than expected. Very professional approach and support with a variety of treatments.

I have had a course of treatment with Gervais to improve mobility after a fractured ankle. His approach has been thorough and I found improvements after each session. With his guidance on exercises to do at home in between sessions, I’ve been really happy with my progress. Highly recommended.

I recently approached Gervais as I was in agony and unable to move freely due to inflammation and muscle contraction in my shoulder, neck and back. He has provided two treatment sessions within 5 days to date which have been incredibly helpful, resulting in significant progress in my condition. I had two osteopathy appointments and one session included acupuncture as well (my first time). It completely transformed my condition and led to significant improvements in mobility and pain reduction almost immediately. I will be continuing to ensure maximum improvement. Gervais is lovely, very calm, considerate, he explained and demonstrated the diagnosis in detail so I understood, informed me about treatment at the start, yet checked in with me at several points to check I was ok and wanted to continue, and explained what he would be doing prior to treating me. He also advised me on how to stop treatment at any point if painful or uncomfortable. I would highly recommend Gervais as a safe practitioner, who provides effective and professional care, as well as giving great guidance on exercises to help at home inbetween sessions.

John was extremely well knowledged and professional. He was able to drastically improve my pain level and mobility after a fall which resulted in two herniated discs. He recommended further treatment for me at a different clinic which has resulted in my recovery. Very grateful for his commitment to me as a patient. Highly recommend the practice

John was amazing. We found out that our daughter had sternocleidomastoid tumour when she was 4 weeks old. Being first time parents we were very worried. Apart from his physio tips, John’s calming and reassuring presence really did help us get through this. I would highly recommend him!

I've never been to an Osteo before and I simply chose Osteopathy London as they were local to where I lived. I was feeling a bit desperate as I had lost feeling in my hands and arms and was not getting much joy from the NHS. My appointment was with Gervais Roubeix who, considering I did no research, I am pleased to say, has been a life changer. I have had 3 sessions with Gervais now and I have regained the feeling in my hands and arms and my back and neck feel lighter on my body again. Gervais is comfortable, personable and gentle. Would definitely recommend both Gervais and Osteopathy London. Thank you Gervais!

Really happy with my sessions with John. He asks a lot of good questions, takes the time to thoroughly understand what's the issue and patiently provides holistic therapy and advice, from manual intervention, deep tissue, posture corrections, dry needling, exercises, and general advice to improve mobility and reduce pain. I'm not only feeling much better from my back and neck muscles pain, but also have tools for it not to get in pain as much in the future. I absolutely recommend him!
