Zara Ford set up Walnut Grove in 1992 and strongly believes that everyone should have the opportunity to achieve better health and well-being. Zara is on the board of directors at the British School of Osteopathy and she also helps to train GPs at local teaching hospitals. She was one of a group of healthcare professionals who looked after the British Team at both the Sydney and Athens Olympics. She also looked after our athletes at the Manchester Commonwealth Games.
What our patients say
Nothing makes us happier than the positive feedback we get from our clients.
I suffer from long term health conditions, which primarily include fibromyalgia and ME. I have a short leg and chronic bursitis of the hips. I have been treated at Walnut Grove by Zara and her colleagues since 1994. Without Osteopathic treatment I would be in unbearable pain and probably wheelchair bound. I would not be able to live the life I have, manage three small children and keep mobile without the support and treatment I receive at Walnut Grove. Walnut Grove does not only treat injuries but helps with long term health conditions – I cannot thank them enough for what they do for me and my family.
I’ve been a regular patient at Walnut Grove for several years receiving Osteopathy treatment from Zara Ford and her excellent team primarily for back and other joint problems. Pilates classes and lessons in the Alexander Technique have also been of immense benefit. This holistic approach has enabled me to maintain my mobility over the years. I walk a lot and attend two exercise classes a week. I would not have achieved any of this without Walnut Grove.
During my third trimester of my 2nd pregnancy I started to suffer with SPD, walking was incredibly painful. Visiting the doctor there was nothing they could do for me, I therefore contacted Walnut Grove Clinic where I met Esther Barton.
Over a couple of treatments Esther got me back on track and enabled me to enjoy the later stages of my pregnancy.
The week before I was due I also visited Esther for some treatment to help prepare my body for the birth, I am certain this helped my very fast positive birth, where I ended up with no pain relief. Which was a completed different experience to my first birth.
Post the birth I also visited Esther with my new born daughter to have some cranial treatment, she is a bonny baby and has not suffered as much in the first few months like my first child did, which I believe is due to a much easier birth and treatment.
Couple of months post the birth my back troubles have returned due to the lifting and general stresses of motherhood. Esther is now helping me through this to gain the strength back in my core and relieve the pain to help me continue with the day to day.
I would not hesitate to recommend Esther Barton to anyone going through pregnancy and post birth. She really has helped me, always making me feel at ease, friendly and very professional.
I was transformed from a person walking painfully and carefully. To a normal walker following the Shockwave treatment at Walnut Grove. I thought I was doomed to a painful future from back problems that had seemed to become permanent.
Thank you for a new lease of life both physically and mentally.
