Alix completed a five-year degree programme at The College of Osteopaths’ Middlesex & Staffordshire University combining academic and clinical, ‘hands-on’, work. A recognised qualification which includes anatomy, physiology, pathology, pharmacology, nutrition, and biomechanics, as well as at least 1,500 hours of clinical training experience with patients, prior to qualification.
Alix has a sports background and has always been interested in health & fitness. Dance, gymnastics and aerial arts are where her passion lies. Alix’s background within performing arts has given her a good insight (and a fair few first hand experiences) with both common and specialist injuries and conditions.
Whether you’ve got a recent new injury, one that you just can’t get rid of, or one that has been recurring, we can help to get you back on track, so you can get back to doing what you love.
Alix is passionate about giving her patients tools to help themselves, such as exercises and educating them about anatomy and posture to prevent recurring injuries, enabling patients to become more “body aware”.

I recently visited Bodyworks as I had been suffering with lower back pain for a few weeks.
As the pain was bearable I thought I would wait and see if it would go on its own, like many of us do. Working at a desk all day was making matters worse and as I was about to compete in a fitness competition, I booked in for treatment with Alix.
Alix was thorough, friendly and professional. The treatment I received wasn’t painful in the slightest and even though I was treated 2 days before the competition, I felt no back pain throughout, thanks to the information and techniques Alix had discussed with me. The treatment was very insightful, throughout Alix explained the techniques used and why.
I went in with high expectations (yes I expected Alix to have magic hands and fix my back pain) but Alix surpassed my expectations, it’s been 2 weeks since my treatment and I’m yet to notice the pain I previously felt. I highly recommend Alix and Bodyworks, I couldn’t have asked for a better service.

As a 6 day a week gym bunny, pole fit, adult gymnastics and Insanity enthusiastic; I’ve encountered my fair share of muscle tightness and soreness, strains and beyond. Even as someone with an educated fitness background, there’s no shame in admitting when you need some help getting over a current or a historic injury.
I’m pleased to say Alix has helped me with both. Having seen Physio’s, chiropractors, sports massage therapists, I can honestly say that Alix is the only practitioner to ever get to the route of the problem. Her techniques are so gentle – I couldn’t believe they would work; until a couple of days after treatment, when I felt like a new person.
Alix gave me exercises and stretches to do and after only a few treatments I was completely better. Alix has addressed a recent strain in my shoulder, fixed a niggling back issue, and has aligned my hips and body which has allowed me to train even more effectively than before. She even worked her magic and I now no longer get migraines! Thoroughly recommend Alix and her practice to anyone suffering any kind of pain or restrictions.

Having suffered from a bad back and leg problems for the last 20 years, I had all but given up on ever getting any better, let alone any improvement. I was recommended by a friend to visit Alix and I am so glad that I did !
From being unable to walk any reasonable distance in the last two years, since visiting Alix over the last few weeks I am now able to walk long distances without the pain and discomfort I have suffered all these years.
The friendly and professional attitude of Alix puts you at ease knowing that you are being looked after by someone who really knows their stuff !
Having suffered with back problems for over twenty years, Alix has succeeded in getting rid of the constant pain and stress that I have had to put up with for all this time.

I have been suffering from lower back pain for many years since a riding accident. I have seen many chiropractors and physios but none that has really helped me.
I visited Alix in March 2016, it was a very welcoming visit, she explained to me I had a herniated disc. I was in a lot of pain, within a week from seeing Alix the pain had receded and within 3 weeks the pain had gone and my back felt better than it had for a long time.
I would highly recommend Alix at Bodyworks Osteopathy for a professional and friendly service. I am confident in Alix’s abilities and knowledge in whatever case presents.
