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.
Meet Our Osteopaths
The stresses and strains of daily life can cause pain, stiffness and immobility.
Physiotherapy works to correct muscular imbalances, reducing joint stiffness, de-activating tight muscles and strengthening weak areas…

A thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology means that the source of pain can be pin pointed and then treated with the appropriate soft tissue techniques and massage therapy. In the sports world it is used proactively to prevent injury…

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
Excellent, I couldn’t wish for better!
Professional, warm, friendly

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.
Come home pain free
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
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
Seriously recommend Nathan Cook.
Great engagement and clear explanation of everything
Juliet is superb

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.
Excellent service as always from Jane!
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.

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.
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.

After seeing Jane I felt like a new man, should have done it sooner. Great work and thanks again Jane.

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.
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.
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.
They genuinely care about their customers
I have been to the Harrison Clinic several times and have always had great treatment. The staff are really friendly and have always taken the time to listen to exactly what I need. They genuinely care about their customers. I also took my daughter for Cranial Osteopathy and the results were fantastic.
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.
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!
Always go the extra mile
The staff are extremely helpful & friendly. They always go the extra mile to help. I would definitely recommend The Harrison Clinic.
Best clinic in the area
This really is the best clinic in the area. The team of staff really do go above and beyond!! 5 Star review from me!! I would highly recommend to anyone!!
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.
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.
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.
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
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!
Provide excellent aftercare service with exercises and programs for continued strength building
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.
Listen carefully in order to find the best method of treatment
My family and I have used the Harrison Clinic for many years. The staff are professional, friendly and listen carefully in order to find the best method of treatment. I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Professional, thorough and friendly
Thoroughly recommend The Harrison clinic. My teenage daughter and I are both clients and can’t speak highly enough of the treatment we have received. Melina and her team are professional, thorough and friendly.
She really knows her subject
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
We always know we are in capable hands when we visit the Harrison Clinic
As a family, we have used the Harrison Clinic for a variety of strains and injuries and have always experienced friendly and professional help, advice and care from Melina and her team. We always know we are in capable hands when we visit the Harrison Clinic.
