Shaw Osteopaths: Nick, Dave & Janet

About Us

We are located in the Shaw area of Newbury, only a five minute drive from the town centre (Show me). Although our practice has been open since 1990, it has been in its current location since 1994 and is a modern comfortable clinic, consisting of three fully-equipped treatment rooms plus a waiting room and toilet. Additionally, for the convenience of our patients, we have plenty of off-street parking space on the clinic premises.

Our three practitioners, Osteopaths David Hamm and Nick Honeyman, and Remedial Masseur/Bowen Therapist Janet Payne, have been working together for over 10 years and all share the similar ideal of creating a professional but relaxed, modern clinic where they specialise in providing patients with friendly but effective treatment of musculoskeletal conditions and sports injuries. All our practitioners have full professional indemnity insurance which is available for viewing, on request. Moreover, they are also registered with several leading PHI (private health insurance) companies including PPP, BUPA and Standard Life.
