Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment that works with the structure and function of the body. It is based on the principle that your well being depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together.

The treatment aims to promote the bodies own healing mechanisms using physical manipulation, stretching and massage and will increase mobility of joints, relieve muscle tension and enhance blood and nerve supply to the tissues.

Our Therapists


Michael Davis 

Mike was inspired to become an osteopath as a teenager, by a practitioner who "sorted out" his long standing back problem. He founded the Natural Therapy Clinic in 1982 with a multi disciplinary approach, to include other complementary therapies.

 Natalie graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in 1991 and has worked in Abingdon ever since. She was also a clinic tutor at the BSO once a week until the birth of her son. 

As a member of the GOsC, she is committed to further study in the osteopathic field and has recently attended courses on visceral osteopathy, sports medicine and the pelvis.

Natalie prefers not to specialise and continues to broaden her experience by seeing a variety of patients with diverse conditions
