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 and Francesco Capua 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, our professional, skilled osteopaths show a continual commitment towards advancing their knowledge in the field and improving patient experiences.
We consistently strive to improve on our excellent standards of osteopathic care. We work together as a team to create an environment of trust throughout the entire patient experience. We are passionate about our work and enable our patients to have a positive experience of working towards recovery.
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’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 absolutely love animals and will enlighten you with many stories about my little pooch!
I have lived in Solihull for 15 years attending Alderbrook School and Arden Sixth Form. I then completed my Masters of Osteopathy degree at Swansea University.
I believe osteopathy is a great way to improve people’s health and wellbeing. I am fascinated by the way osteopathy can help the body to heal so that people can move freely again without pain.
I am eager to learn and enjoy new challenges. I am a keen squash player and enjoy most sport. I also love cooking and like to bake my own bread as well as enjoying music, video games and reading. I am passionate about the environment and try to live a sustainable lifestyle.
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.
