I started seeing Koa due to a pain in my lower back two years ago. I was amazed that my sinus trouble that I had been battling with for years disappeared with my back treatment, and general wellness improved in my overall health. Soon after I started seeing Koa, I became pregnant with my first child, and she continued to treat me throughout my pregnancy, keeping my body in balance with the changes it had never faced before! My baby is now just had his 1st birthday and Koa has treated him from birth, giving us as new parents peace of mind that he is developing well. My recommendation can not come more highly for Koa, and would urge any pregnant woman in pain to not delay seeing her, there is no need to suffer! And for anyone with a new baby, seeing her now may help yours and your babies sleep levels, need I say more!

Due to work related situations I have had many painful back problems over a 25 year period. During that time I have been pulled,pushed and manipulated by chiropractors, osteopaths,visited surgeons who indicated surgery could be an option but there could not be any guarantee of a 100 % success. I was getting to the point of despair when my daughter suggested I visit Koa Thompson I made an appointment with Koa and whilst there was no flash of lightning and the pain was gone, over a period initially of weeks then months Koa with her more gentle methods of manipulation got me to a point where with personal care and exercises which she recommended I was able to more manage my problem. I visit Koa probably two or three times a year usually because I think I"m a fit 40 year old and not someone who next year will be celebrating his 80th birthday.
Thanks Koa I appreciate your TLC

I have known Koa for about 9 years now and in that time she has treated all of my family at one time or another.
She has done cranial work on my babies and treated sporting injuries and sore backs on the children as well. She also kept me moving when suffering chronic pain due to Osteo Arthritis in my back, treating me during my last pregnancy and the months after. My husband has also been treated by Koa when he suffered an elbow injury.
Koa is excellent with children and babies. She is calm, kind and gentle which makes them feel comfortable and safe with her.
I have recommended Koa to many people over the years, many who are now regular patients and everyone has only good things to say about her.

Koa has been treating my family for the past few years for various issues including bedwetting and glue ear. Koa has a lovely quiet nature and the children felt totally comfortable and safe in her care. Our daughter still asks when she can go back to Koa again. As a result of Koa's treatment our then 3yr old was able to avoid having grommets - which was the best outcome we could have hoped for. We have always found Koa to be extremely thorough and professional and generally a lovely person to deal with. We would happily recommend Koa to other families - and regularly do!

Koa has been our first choice of osteopath for a number of years now, for both myself and my family. My teenage daughter has been treated by Koa for a couple of different kinds of injuries. Koa is very approachable and makes her patients feel extremely at ease. She asks many questions to ascertain the nature of the injury. She is very good at explaining in lay terms what parts of the body the injury is affecting and what the treatment will entail. We have been very happy with all of the treatment services we have received and would not hesitate to recommend Koa.

Koa Thompson was recommended to me as an Osteopath by a personal trainer at the gym I attend. Her knowledge and skill over the past 6 years in treating and maintaining a historical lower back problem have given me the freedom and confidence to continue to stay fit and face new physical challenges.
Koa’s friendly and open manner combined with her compassion and intuition, not to mention her magic hands have made a massive difference to my daily life and how I function in my body. Thanks Koa.
