Helping your body keep up with your life.
We believe in vitality and health. We believe this should be the norm in every person's life. Our aim is to help optimise your physical health and allow you to live life with vitality until you need us again. We do this by bringing together a support network of specialist practitioners who collaborate to help you reach a health outcome.
Philip Tanswell opened Long Melford Osteopaths in 1983 and from his expertise and tutelage, we have grown to serve a large area of Suffolk with a hands-on approach to health and injury that focuses on the individual. We work hard to continually develop our skills sets to ensure that we are able to deliver the right and most up to date approach to help manage and optimise your physical health.
