Having long been a patient of Ivan’s, I like the way he works “with” me rather than “on” me. He is a great listener and takes into account all you say. I always leave him feeling “normalised” again – and with a smile ! C.B.

I have been a patient of Ivan’s since 1985. Now he is so experienced he can treat one through one’s clothes, and usually with very few visits. Brilliant. H.A.I.K.

On many occasions over the years Ivan’s skill and knowledge have “resurrected” me from a considerable number of very painful injuries. B.J.B.

Ivan has successfully treated back, neck, hip, knee and ankle problems that I have had from time to time over the past 27 years. He has also cured sciatic pain suffered by my two daughters during pregnancy, and the migraines suffered by other friends. A.G.

As a writer, I often wonder how many novels I could have completed without the physical skill of Ivan Bell and his tactful guidance on both posture and well-being. So called writer’s cramp is by no means confined to the neck and I am eternally grateful to Ivan for mitigating the more unfortunate side effects of a high stress activity. A.D.

The legacy of my competition swimming was a shoulder injury that could have left me with little capacity in my right hand. Never let anyone persuade you that old sports injuries have to be lived with till you see what a good osteopath like Ivan can do for you. P. D.
