Melina makes you feel at ease, is very compassionate about understanding your pain and extremely knowledgeable about what may be causing the issue. After a thorough examination she diagnosed the problem I had and gave me exercises to do at home. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Peter took time to understand my symptoms and the impact they are having on my work. He was very reassuring whilst also being honest and direct about what I needed to do. The treatment I received in the session gave some immediate relief. I will have no hesitation returning if I need further treatment or advice.
I been seeing Anna Peachey and very impressed with her knowledge and advise.

Read on to find out what we do and meet our team…


Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatments based on the principle that the structure and function of the body are interrelated and therefore rely on each other for optimal health.
Through case history and clinical examination the osteopath seeks to establish the exact source of the patient’s problem and formulate a diagnosis. Hands on treatment is aimed at reducing symptoms/pain, restoring function and removing any mechanical imbalances which are preventing healing.  The osteopath will also provide rehabilitation exercises and life-style advice to help prevent further problems.

Osteopaths are qualified to treat children and babies. Currently The Harrison Clinic practitioners treat children age eight years and above. 
We are in the process of recruiting a specialist child and baby therapist. We will update this website as soon as we have our new team member.

Thank you!

My fourth visit to Gemma. My right arm is restored to good health and strength. Thank you!


I was treated with care the moment I walked through the door

Excellent service. An amazing place where you can access many different treatments under one roof. The treatment plan offered was entirely based on my own individual needs. I was treated with care the moment I walked through the door. Highly recommend!

Sharon Morgan

First time using an Osteopath but absolutely worth it

Hurt my back and within just 3 sessions over 2 weeks I feel significantly better. Would definitely recommend Callum Watson. First time using an Osteopath but absolutely worth it and I will definitely be back if I have any more problems.

Kathryn Curran

I leave feeling mentally better

Fabulous. Though my body is a bit broke, I leave feeling mentally better and that is worth everything. Thank you Melina.



Amazing treatment as always


Knowledgable about all the various muscles/joints

Session felt great. Gemma was extremely knowlegable about all the various muscles/joints around my hip and thoroughly worked through the stiffness in each of them. Would definitely go back if any future injuries arise.


One of the best

Having been to most of the Physio/Osteo clinics in this area I have stayed with Harrison as I find it is one of the best. Just wish they had more facilities for sports injuries and for the clinicians to work. Floors need to be flat! But don’t bother going anywhere else

Dee Roth-Brown

Listens well

Have been to Callum a few times now, very professional and understanding, listens well and I have always benefited from my visits, would definitely recommend.


Virtually pain free since

As a long term patient of another Osteopath in Reading, who had retired, I was delighted to learn of Harrison Clinic and that another Osteopath, who I’d met briefly some years ago, had a clinic there. The treatment I’ve received from Callum Watson is excellent and has meant that I have been virtually pain-free since seeing him. Both my husband and an old friend who I recommended visit Callum say the same. The whole Clinic is run efficiently, and the Receptionist is friendly and helpful.

Dorothy Ray

Excellent communication with me

Excellent communication with me.  Very professional in the treatment provided a first class service.


Friendly, Professional service

Booked a last minute appointment and Callum couldn’t have been any nicer. Friendly professional service.



Excellent, I couldn’t wish for better!


Fully recommend her services

Juliet is always welcoming and very professional. Would fully recommend her services.


Explained what she was doing

Juliet was very friendly and explained what she was doing and how it was going to help my daughter.


Free’s the knots!

Gemma has managed to ‘free’ the knots from my toes to my neck…thank you…


Nathan Cook

Seriously recommend Nathan Cook.


Very professional – finding the cause

Nathan was very professional in his approach and instead of just treating the injury he tried finding the cause, which was very beneficial to myself and knowing how to treat it was a bonus, i would highly recommend Nathan

Very pleased with the service provided

I was very pleased with the service provided by the Harrison Clinic. Every appointment was on time, the receptionist was pleasant, Vicky our Physio was professional and very knowledgeable. I would not hesitate to return if anyone in the family needed treatment.


Very helpful

As always very helpful.


Thanks to all at the clinic

As a Dance Teacher it is very important to keep my body in good shape, and thanks to all at the clinic that is what they do.

Trudi Shepherd

Very professional

As always very professional.


Professional Care as usual

Excellent service and professional care as usual.



Felt relaxed and comfortable


Full mobility back

Helped me get full mobility back and get rid of remaining pain after breaking my back (but not my spine fortunately) in a skiing accident. Would highly recommend.


Excitement that he has my recovrey at the forefront

I had a consultation today with Nathan and just wanted to offer some well deserved feedback.
I was really impressed with his people skills and ability to communicate a very complex situation (my diagnosis) in lamen (spelling) terms.
There is always the fear that an osteo will try and over sell a course of treatment, which undermines my faith in the treatment immediately.
Nathan was far from any type of hard sell and left me with a confidence and ‘excitement’ that he has my recovery at the fore front of his thoughts.
I will happily suggest the clinic and Nathan to any and all my friends and look forward to my future sessions.
Congrats and thanks again.

Very helpful as always

Very helpful as always . On the mend just need to remember all Nathan’s advice


Good guidance

Impressed with Juliet’s diligence to get to the route of the problem and provide not only treatment but good guidance on what I should be doing to help repair the problem.


Superb level of service

Superb level of service and treatment as always! My daughter came away after the treatment session feeling her back pain much relieved.


Melina is just the best!

Amazing as always. Melina is just the best!


I could have skipped out

Another excellent treatment. I booked as an emergency because my back and hip muscles were so tight that I was unable to stand the day before and Nathan managed to release the muscles enough that I could have skipped out if so inclined


Ease my pain

Excellent work by Nathan who certainly hows how to ease my pain. Thanks


Won’t be going anywhere else fast

Really thorough, very professional and sorted my back right out. Booked him a week again a week Friday. All the staff i’ve had sort my rubbish back out have been lovely and I won’t be going anywhere else fast.



Professional, warm, friendly


Excellent service

Excellent service as always from Jane!


Wish I’d seen him a long time ago

Having suffered with lower back pain for far too long, I saw Nathan and was incredibly impressed with him. Nathan talked me through many questions to pinpoint my problem and then carried out some treatment, all the while explaining what he was doing and why. The following day I felt so much better and wished I’d seen him a long time ago. I have already booked a follow-up session and further treatments


I was able to compete and finish the run

I was very fortunate to have a physio appointment less than a week before a half marathon to address a hip muscle strain. The session, information and guidance I received was superb and I was able to compete and finish the run.

Andrew Norris

Fixed me well!!


Kept me running 50-75 miles

I’ve been seeing Melina since I had a stress fracture last year. She has kept me running 50-75 miles weeks since then and her deep tissue work is exceptional.


Friendly service

Very good, caring and friendly service both when I spoke to Melina and when I saw Callum. Thank you 🙂


My sciatic pain hasn’t returned for several years now

I suffered from a fairly serious recurring sciatic problem a while ago, and the team at the Harrison Clinic were great in helping me manage it and advising me in how to prevent it coming back (through changes in my exercise and daily routine). What I liked was the way that they treated me as a team, referring me to different therapists and different types of treatment based on what was best for me. My sciatic pain hasn’t returned for several years now, and the Harrison Clinic is still the place I’ll go to treat any injuries, pain or strains. Highly recommended.

Martin Harrison

The Harrison Clinic is a true asset in our community

I have been a client at the Harrison Clinic for the past 12 years. I rate this friendly, multidisciplinary clinic incredibly highly, and I also have many friends and family who feel the same way. I have appointments as and when my body requires, and always get instant relief from the treatment. Melina and her team are excellent and work in a true inter-disciplinary manner to ensure you receive the best possible result. As a family we have used many of the treatments on offer; osteopathy – including in pregnancy, cranial osteopathy for our children, sports treatments to keep my husband in top form, and most fantastically my 96 year old grandmother gained vast improvement in her movement following a very gentle, yet effective treatment. The Harrison Clinic is a true asset in our community.

Kara McCormack

Felt very safe with covid precautions

Janes is amazing and has really helped with my mobility after a fall. I felt very safe and all covid precautions were adhered to.

Callum was very easy to talk to

Callum was very easy to talk to and professional, he explained the issues I had with good detail and explained and demonstrated the exercises he recommended I do and how to get the most out of them. He was also keen to ensure that I felt safe and comfortable throughout the appointment. – George

Friendly & Professional

Friendly and professional with good explanations of my treatment.


Expert in every way

As usual I found Jane extremely professional, friendly and expert in every way.


All the staff are warm and welcoming

I have used The Harrison Clinic for a number of reasons over the past few years. I initially saw them for physio, but then also had osteopathy, nutritional advice and hypnotherapy. In addition I attended a weekend ‘retreat’ which was a first for me. I was very nervous about this, but found it an incredible and uplifting experience and just what I needed to ‘reset’ after a particularly difficult time. All the staff are warm and welcoming regardless of how long it is since you last saw them. I would highly recommend getting in touch with and using the Harrison Clinic.

Mel put me at ease

I was a nervous patient, and Mel put me at ease and explained the issue with my back. Also very kindly offered to be available by phone if I had any further queries as a follow-up appointment was not required. Thank you.


You can clearly see the passion they have for the work

I have used the Harrison Clinic for a variety of treatments over the last few years. All staff are helpful and very knowledgeable in the work they do. You can clearly see the passion they have for the work and all staff at the clinic support each other with treatments. I know if I do have any further issues in the future, I will always use the Harrison clinic as they have flexible opening times and a have a variety of practitioners to be the most suitable to your needs.

Highly recommend The Harrison Clinic. Melina and her team go above and beyond to look after you. Not only when your having treatment but they provide excellent aftercare service with exercises and programs for continued strength building. I will always recommend the clinic to my friends, family and clients.

I was absolutely amazed!

I was absolutely amazed! The only other time I have visited an Osteopath it was an awful lot of ‘bone crunching ‘ and not a nice experience.. This however was totally different, detailed explanation and good diagnosis coupled with excellent treatment!

Jane was excellent as always.


Lots of advice & encouragement

Excellent as always. We’ve had a number of appointment with Juliet for our son Harrison and she is always really good with him. Today Harrison decided to have a massive screaming fit for the majority of the session, this did not deter Juliet and she continued to treat Harrison while my wife and I tried to keep him calm.  Since we starting seeing Juliet back in December Harrison’s issues have improved massively. Juliet always asks how we are doing as well and has provided us with lots of advice and encouragement and we are very grateful to her for all her work with Harrison. Thanks.


Helpful and caring

Very friendly, helpful and caring


Patient centered

Very thorough and patient centered. Really appreciated the time and attention.

Mel always takes great trouble to make sure that I leave in a much better state than I arrive and is always very pleasant and I come home free from pain and in a happy mood forgetting all my troubles


Highly recommend Melina and her team

I’ve used the Harrison clinic many times over the past few years for multiple ailments and injuries. Always a pleasant welcome and you always feel comfortable. All the staff I have been seen by are professional and excellent at what they do. I have sent many friends, family members and clients of my own to seek help and treatment from the Harrison clinic resulting in excellent service and treatment. Highly recommend Melina and her team of professionals at the Harrison clinic.

Juliet is superb

Juliet is superb. She listens to the issues you are having, asks pertinent questions and then applies relevant treatments. Afterwards, she asks how I felt it went, what her take on the issues were and how they have improved. Really good.

Excellent session

Another excellent session with Nathan.


I have already recommended the clinic to a colleague

I have suffered with neck pain for many years and was persuaded by my wife to visit Mel at The Harrison Clinic based on the quality of treatment she had received. Despite my cynicism (men are generally rubbish at sorting out their medical conditions), Mel has already made a difference and after only three sessions my symptoms are improving. I have already recommended the clinic to a colleague.

Tim Waters

Prepared & respectful

Knowledgeable, professional, prepared and respectful.


Will definitely reuse if needed

Slightly tricky to find, especially with the road works, but once turned off the main road you follow it round to the left and look for Unit I (capital i). You now have to wait in the car park to be called in (CV19) but Mel was super friendly and came out to help me out the car. I was seen very quickly and assessed, before my treatment started. I was diagnosed quickly, given treatment and then given aftercare in the shape of appropriate advice and stretches. Will definitely reuse if needed!

Peter Cave

Excellent service

Excellent service very good


Recovered very quickly from a frozen shoulder operation

I would not hesitate to recommend The Harrison Clinic. I recovered very quickly from a Frozen Shoulder operation thanks to the physiotherapy treatment I received here. The staff were very friendly and put me at my ease. They were quick to diagnose the problem in the first place and post operation, expertly kept me on track for a full recovery. The sessions were very reasonably priced and value for money.

Caroline Aubrey

Keep me running

Gemma in an excellent soft tissue therapist who keeps me running which keeps me running 🙂


Treatment has reformed the agony

Nathan was very professional from start to finish. Listened to me and understood my problem. His treatment has reformed the agony I have spent the last 4 days in. I am sure he saved me from a slipped disc. Cannot thank him enough.


Melina was fabulous

Very good treatment and professional! Highly recommend not only Nathan but the business as a whole! This is my second set of treatments in 12 months and each time I have always managed to get seen quickly and fixed! They will not keep you coming back once fixed just to rip you off, so be assured you are in safe hands all round!


Tips to manage his condition

I took my dad for a visit to get a second opinion and advice on his arthiritis. Melina was highly professional and gave us lots of tips on how to manage his condition, increase mobility and manage his pain. I look forward to seeing the results of a longer term daily self care. Thank you Melina.


Very professional and very knowledgeable

Very professional and very knowledgeable, Melina was able to explain far more than my GP was


Always greeted with a smile

Always greeted with a smile. Was also very fortunate to always get an appointment within reasonable time frame. The Physio work done on me changed my life from constant pain in my lower back to a position that I now follow all the exercises and stretches given and now operate almost pain free. Thank you.

Layton De Wet

So experienced and professional, friendly and caring.


She really knows her subject

I wanted to thank the wonderful Vicky for all her help with my knee surgery recovery, arm and shoulder problems and fixing my back too. She really knows her subject and is very hands on especially with the amazing “dagger” looking tool. Thoroughly recommended.  And not forgetting the lovely Marie Baguena for her efficiency and cheerful nature on the front desk.
Martin Raines

Amazing staff who are exceptional in their expertise and field of treatment

From the initial drive to the clinic, surrounded by tranquil Berkshire countryside and still only a stones throw from Reading centre to the warm and friendly welcome you receive as you enter the clinic. Melina and her team will give nothing short in the very best. Treatment and good sound advice. I have known Mel for many years and she always puts others first. She has built up an amazing clinic and taken on amazing staff who are exceptional in their expertise and field of treatment. I couldn’t recommend this clinic enough from the very best treatment to the warmest friendliest of staff.  After every session I leave not only feeling the freedom of movement and relief in pain but also with the pleasure of meeting such lovely people who have become dear friends over the years Big Thumbs Up!

Paul Morgan

Pathway to rehabilitation

Absolutely fabulous initial consultation with Melina. Professional and experienced. I left the appointment feeling positive about treatment and a pathyway to rehabilitation.
