John Wernham opened his first Clinic in Maidstone in 1947, first in Mill Street, then in Museum Street.  Two years later the Maidstone Osteopathic Clinic was founded, the first in the country outside London.  In 1953 it became a registered charity and moved to the premises at no. 30 Tonbridge Road.

What to expect on your first visit

The INITIAL CONSULTATION lasts about one hour, and subsequent visits about 30 minutes.

A CASE HISTORY is taken to record details of your ailment(s) including your medical history.

An OSTEOPATHIC EXAMINATION is then carried out, the osteopath will discuss the findings with you, followed by TREATMENT if appropriate.  At the end of the consultation, the osteopath will discuss with you if further treatment is necessary.

HOME VISITS can be arranged for those unable to attend the Clinic

A favourite quote of John Wernham:

“Don’t ask whether the case is suitable for osteopathic treatment,
ask what osteopathy can do for the case!”

In the summer patients can relax in the garden either before or after their treatments if they wish.
