Who we are
Solihull Osteopathic Practice started in 2006, originally as Jeremy James & Associates, before evolving into the current Solihull Osteopathic Practice. The practice’s team of osteopaths include Jeremy James, Stephanie Lees, Joe Marshall, Francesco Capua and Tessa Clout who are committed to help relieve pain and improve the quality of life for their patients.
As a member of the Institute of Osteopathy and registered members of the General Osteopathic Council, we strive to uphold the Institutes Patient Charter and Values. Our values as a practice are aligned with these.
We care about all our patients and your individual needs, listening and supporting you throughout your journey with us. We work together as a team to create an environment of trust throughout the entire patient experience. We want you to feel safe from the moment you walk through the door. Our aim is to offer you quality, professional and dedicated osteopathic treatment and support to get you out of pain and moving freely again.
I’m a Solihull native, born here and attended Dorridge Junior and Tudor Grange Schools.
I trained for 4 years at BSO in London, it’s the oldest and largest school of Osteopathy in the UK and its reputation is worldwide.
After qualifying in 1993 I worked in various practices in the West Midlands and in New Zealand before starting my own practice. My approach is holistic and in addition to the many osteopathic techniques, I’m also happy to give advice on exercise, diet and lifestyle.
I also provide support to my associates and ensure that the practice continues to offer the high quality of care that it has become known for.
I’m married to Donna, we have two teenage children and a dog called Monty. I am a keen cyclist and love walking and wild camping.
I am from Birmingham, growing up in Sutton Coldfield. Since I was young, I knew I always wanted to go into a caring profession where I can help others. Therefore, I completed a 5-year part-time bachelor’s degree in Osteopathy at Staffordshire University.
I like to treat an array of conditions and people alike. I have a particular interest in treating pregnant women and sports people, especially golfers as I studied the biomechanics of a golf swing at university.
Alongside my degree, I completed an Advanced Dry Needling course and really enjoy applying this method of treatment as it can be really beneficial. In addition, I use a wide range of techniques including joint mobilisation and manipulation, soft tissue relief and strengthening exercises. I have also completed postgraduate training in cranial osteopathy.
I absolutely love animals and will enlighten you with many stories about my little pooch!
I was born in Warwickshire and have lived in Solihull since I was 7 years old. I attended Alderbrook School and Arden Sixth Form, before completing my Masters of Osteopathy degree at Swansea University.
I believe osteopathy is a great way to improve people’s health and wellbeing and I’m fascinated by the way osteopathy can help the body recover from pain or injury.
I treat a variety of different conditions, including the management of arthritis and treatment during pregnancy. My adaptable approach allows me to treat in a way that suits you best, whether that’s strong or more gentle.
I enjoy being a part of my patients’ recovery and seeing them achieve their goals however big or small along the way.
I’m a keen cyclist and enjoy playing and watching sport. In my spare time I’m often out walking and seeing friends.
B.Ost (Hons); BSc Sport and Exercise Science (Hons)
I was born and raised in Italy and have been living in the UK for 6 years. I completed my Osteopathic qualification in Italy. I have a first class honours degree in sport and exercise science. I have a passion to help others which stemmed from my father who was an Orthopaedic Technician.
My fundamental aim as a practitioner is to help patients achieve their health goals, this may be to become pain free, prevent future injuries or to simply achieve a higher level of health and fitness, by using a combination of Osteopathy and functional exercise.
My key strengths lie in structural, visceral, cranial and fascial osteopathic approaches and personalised management advice, in order to enable patients to support their own healing process.
Outside of work, I can often be found surfing or creating callisthenic programmes.
B.Sc (Hons) Ost
I am originally from East Sussex and have recently relocated to the Solihull Area. I completed my degree in 2001 at the London School of Osteopathy. I have also completed a postgraduate qualification as an Animal Osteopath.
I have always wanted to work in a healing and holistic profession. I enjoy treating people of all ages and conditions using a structural approach and encompassing a variety of manual techniques.
Additionally, I have undertaken full training as a Perrin Practitioner, which is an osteopathic technique for the treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME). I have also completed postgraduate training in cranial osteopathy.
Aside from work, I enjoy being in the outdoors and travelling and I absolutely love horses!
