Visiting our son from the States, I was in discomfort from dragging my suitcase for what seemed like miles through Heathrow; shoulder was pulled but mostly my lower back.. From the States I was familiar with the benefits of Chiropractic and message and was seeking some message therapy but Osteopathy is not available per se. Normally need one and a half hour message to relax my muscles and there was only a 30 opening. Was asked if I wanted to also see the Osteopath who could also use massage. Knowing that I need more than 30 minutes I waited 30 minutes between appointments and saw Summeara Ahmad Bedford. My result was just short of miraculous. Osteopathy from my perspective combines the benefits of manipulation with muscle relaxation from massage. Summeara diagnosed my problem, relaxed my tense muscle holding my lower back out of alignment, and then put me back into alignment. She taught me a simple stretching exercise that allowed me to KEEP the muscle relaxed and I finished my remaining week and half in the UK pain free. She may not remember but I asked her to come back to Michigan and set up a practice there.
We are delighted that Summeara has helped your back pain with Osteopathic treatment. Unfortunately she won't be available to set up practice in Michigan any time soon! We look forward to your next visit to Oxford.
