What Happens on 1st Session

1st Appointment - What Happens?

When you visit Jackie for the first time you will be allocated one hour. A full case history will be taken, including what you have come to see her about but also a medical history to ensure that it is safe to treat you. Please bring a note of any medication that you take, including herbal & aromotherapy.

You will then be given an examination. Depending on the area being treated, you may be asked to remove your upper clothing down to your underwear. If you prefer, loose fitting leggings / tracksuit bottoms are a a good option for back pain.  A curtain is available for you to undress & dress behind. Jackie will then ask you to perform a simple series of movements. You will be covered most of the time, with just the area to be examined and treated available for Jackie to examine and treat. Since Covid-19,  I no longer provide a towel to cover you, however, you are welcome to bring along your own towel.

Jackie will then use a highly developed sense of touch, called palpation, to identify any points of weakness or excessive strain throughout the body.

We will then discuss and agree the appropriate treatment plan for you, whether that is Osteopathy, Shockwave, Western Acupuncture, or a Combination.

Please call Jackie to discuss any questions that you have.

I'd had an ankle problem from an accident about 10 years before going to see Jackie. The doctors said it was ligament tendon and tissue damage and would have to live with it but Jackie gave me shock treatment over 3 sessions and I have had no problem for the last 5 years. She is very good and knows what she is doing and talks to you like a human being

I have suffered with pain in my right shoulder and arm for several years which used to keep me awake at night. Following visits to Jackie which included 5 shockwave treatments, I am virtually pain free. I would highly recommend a visit to Jackie for anyone in pain and certainly recommend her shockwave treatment

I had persistant arm/shoulder pain, and after a course of Shockwave Therapy from Jackie, I can now go to the gym and play tennis with no pain at all. Jackie is friendly, knowledgeable and professional (her dog's lovely too!)

I'd suffered with back pain for years and thought I'm not just going to live with this. I contacted Jackie 12 months ago and can't believe my quality of life has changed so much !! Highly recommended

Jackie treated my Achilles problem using shock wave therapy twenty months ago. I have not had any problems since and would thoroughly recommend Jackie for this or for other osteopathic treatments.

Highly recommend Jackie salter for shock treatment therapy. I was in pain with plantar fasciitis for several months, tried several different things but none worked. Contacted Jackie for shock wave therapy who got me appointments quickly. Foot felt less painful after 3 sessions. Jackie was very experienced and caring on each session. Had 5 session in all and now back to running pain free.
