Central Oxford Osteopathy was founded by Principal Osteopath Jamie Dearing in 2011, creating a warm, welcoming clinic in the heart of historic Oxford. For our first ten years years Central Oxford Osteopathy was located by Frideswide Square. We now occupy a beautiful Victorian building on the Abingdon Road, overlooking University playing fields and next to Hinksey Park.
Jamie trained and initially practiced in London, before moving with his family to Oxford. Since then his practice has grown with the addition of Associate Osteopaths, and diversified by hosting a wider range of health professionals – from acupuncture practitioners to talking therapists.
Jamie is a friendly, award-winning osteopath based in central Oxford. He trained at the London School of Osteopathy (LSO), where he was awarded the senior management prize for all-round ability. He has since gone on to publish osteopathic research in academic journals, presented his work at conferences and is also involved in Osteopathic education as a Clinic Supervisor at the LSO.
Cliff trained at the British School of Osteopathy and is passionate about providing the best patient care. He likes to apply his curiosity and trouble shooting skills to identifying the source of his patients’ pain. By helping them understand the dysfunctions in their body, he empowers his patients to manage their own long term health.
Jenny’s treatments emphasise a holistic view of the individual and focus on relieving painful symptoms so patients can return to the activities they love as soon as possible. She places importance on empowering patients through education and self-care practices that are manageable and realistic to incorporate into their every day lives.
For the first time in years I am no longer taking pain killers and able to sleep through the night- Anna, violinist with Roxy Music, 26
After twisting my back when picking up my daughter, I was struggling to walk. I had two sessions with Jamie and have continued with the exercises which he suggested. A month later, my back feels great and the pain has completely gone.- Chris, 33
Jamie treated my neck, gave me exercises to repeat and probably more importantly, convinced me I had a healthy spine. Within two weeks I was a new woman, and have been pain free for weeks and weeks.- Bobbie, 56
