Jane Ducklin Osteopath
We put kindness, understanding and integrity at the heart of what we do.
We want you to feel the security of being in safe hands which is why we are continually updating our knowledge and skills.
We understand that when you are in pain, you will want to be seen as soon as possible and we try our best to find appointments for you within a day or two, possibly even the same day.
We believe it is important to help you get control over the problem you have, so we will help you to understand your diagnosis better and how you might make improvements for yourself.
We encourage open and honest communication so that we can get it right for you. You can always speak to Jane or Doug if you have any queries or concerns about your care.
We are committed to behaving with respect and dignity towards our patients and to each other, and we endeavour to behave in ways that are consistent with the health messages we teach.
Osteopathy is not just a job, it’s a vocation. We are committed to providing the very best care.
Jane Ducklin Bsc(Hons) DO
Jane qualified in 1991 from the British School of Osteopathy and after working internationally she settled in Tring in 1995, raising a family and building a community practice in Osteopathy.
Her work is centred around the relief of pain, and helping people to get the best out of their bodies.
She is particularly interested in getting to the root of recurrent problems so she will look at the whole body and the tensions within it, and take into account any traumas or lifestyle habits that could be contributory factors. In addition to hands-on treatment, she will work collaboratively with you to find manageable changes that will help you to take control again.
“I’m always amazed at the power of osteopathy to improve joint function and balance the muscles of the body. The resulting improvement in coordination of movement is remarkable and people often report feeling so much better in themselves.”
