June Holland - Gillingham Kent

"James has treated my son for 13 years. Aidan was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 2 and a half. We were advised to go to the OCC in London after having been under a different Cranial Osteopath for 6 months, who felt he had done as much as he could for my son, but specialists at the OCC could do more, and that is exactly what happened and where we first met James. 
We then continued treatment with James more locally when we moved to Kent and have done so ever since. I can honestly say that my son would not have achieved as much as he has without the help of James. I was told by Paediatricians When Aidan was very young that they wanted to put Aidan on Ritalin when he was 5 years old. I objected and was then told by these Paediatricians that my life would be very hard if I didn't do so, and that Aidan would never do well in life because he didn't have the ability to concentrate. 
Update........ Aidan is in the Grammar stream of his school, he is sitting the new baccalaureate exams this summer. This is honestly down to the treatment he has received through his life from James. Aidan's mind and body now have the ability to concentrate and remain calm at all times. James has the ability to balance the body and to counter balance hyperactivity. 
All of my children have had treatment from James on occasion for various ailments/illnesses and have all been better for it. My sister also turned to James for treatment when she had cancer. Not for a cure but to help her body feel less pain and to help with her breathing, which he was successful in doing and something which the NHS could not help her with. 
I have also referred friends and colleagues to James over the years who have always had a positive experience and results. 
If ever I am in doubt of anything medical, I will always seek James' opinion because his knowledge and experience of all things physical and medical." 

Georgina Anderson - Sussex 

"My son has had several sessions with James since Dec 2016 due to difficulties settling into the school routine (he is only 4 and in Reception). He had a traumatic birth which seems to be the cause of his difficulties. After seeing James we have a few days of "spirited" behaviour, we then get this lovely phase where he settles, is calm and listens and generally is a contented child. After the initial period of treatments we noticed a huge difference and we're a happier family as a result. Now we occasionally need to see James for a "top up" if my son has a bout of sickness which can unbalance things. James is also becoming quite the expert in Pokemon and the Avengers which obviously by son LOVES! 5 stars would give more if we could!!"

'In this day in age, it can sometimes be hard to always know you are seeing the right person for the job, but in the case of James Bibby, you can always be sure you are seeing not just the right person, but the best person! James has a very open, personal and caring approach, he seems to consider each of my cases carefully, treating me as a whole as opposed to just my symptoms, and as a result always seems to find a way to help. Without elaboration, I can honestly say that I wouldn't be walking around without being lucky enough to experience the skills of this man. Following a sporting accident many years ago, I had tried seeing many different therapists from many different backgrounds, but it was only once I started seeing James that things changed. I can now happily say that since receiving treatment from James, I am back to full training, and have even completed triathlons and half marathons all thanks to him.' 

James Weston - Professional Racing Driver and Personal Trainer

'I have been seeing James for over 6 years now. As a fitness professional I need my body functioning in its best condition at all times not only for my job but for my own training. Whatever problems and injuries I have incurred over the last few years James has always fixed them. With his wealth of knowledge he doesn’t just fix the problem area but he will work down to the route of it all and I can only be amazed by what he does. I have not only visited James for injuries but have recently been treated by him for a bout of stress and anxiety which he has been incredible in aiding my recovery. 
After being treated by James, and how effective I find his treatments I cannot recommend him highly enough. Since I began my treatments, I have recommended many of my clients to him along with my mother, sister and wife.'

Mr & Mrs Gilani-Tolhurst, Uckfield

'James helped us overcome ankle and shoulder injuries that we're obtained through competitive sport. He is very thorough and always explains in simple terms the techniques he carries out to aid your recovery. We always felt better after a session with him! Highly recommended!'

Sophie Elford

'I have been using osteopaths for many years and have not found any that are as good as James Bibby. He works with you and your problem to provide realistic treatment solutions that enable you to carry on with normal life. His knowledge of his field and the human body is second to none. I have recommended him to many of my friends who have been equally impressed and cured!'

Zoe Clark, Tunbridge Wells

'We first went to visit James Bibby when our son was 9 months old. We found him to be thorough, considered, knowledgeable and gentle, and so very good with our little one. So good, that whenever we have had an issue, we have always gone back to him. His treatment is gentle and amazing, and my son says that James' hands make him feel better again. What more could you ask for?!'

Zoe Clark, Tunbridge Wells

'We took our baby boy to see James when he suddenly started having colic symptoms at 5 weeks old. His treatment was amazing, he told me more about the birth than I knew, and my little baby's symptoms totally disappeared within a month. We had a short course of treatments, not more than we needed, and not less, and James made a considered assessment of if we needed to return every time, and offered me the opportunity to call and discuss any issues before the next treatment to see if it was necessary. We were so impressed that we use him now as our family osteopath, and would happily recommend him to anyone.'

Paula Terry, Burgess Hill

'I have suffered from migraine for most of my life, with episodes lasting 1-2 days and occurring as frequently as once a week, and general headaches most days.

One morning 18 months ago I woke up feeling very dizzy, which didn't subside, and was eventually diagnosed with vestibular migraine. None of the medications I was prescribed were effective in relieving the dizziness, without adding unwanted side-effects, so eventually I was forced to stop taking them.

It was at this point I started being treated by James. After one visit my general daily headaches disappeared and have not returned. It has been 3 months since I started treatment and in that time I've only had 1 migraine which is a vast improvement. My dizziness is greatly reduced as well.

James is a wonderfully talented, personable and professional osteopath with 'magic hands' and I couldn't recommend him highly enough.'

'James has been treating our 5 year old son for postural problems and growth related changes. He has a wonderful approach with him and is very calm and engaging.' 

Todd Adcock, Professional Golfer

'I first started seeing James in 2010 for treatment on a Repetitive Strain Injury I suffered playing golf. Having known James prior to this, I knew he was very personable, dedicated and strived to excel in whatever he did. 

As my course of treatment progressed, I was very impressed by James's knowledge, calm demeanour and caring nature. He always has the ability to make me feel comfortable, relaxed and have total trust in him. 

Thankfully my wrist problem is now a thing of the past, however with the one sided and repetitive nature of Golf, there are other areas of the body that also suffer. James has since given me on going treatment for shoulder and neck problems.

For most of my Professional career, James has been vital in keeping fit and allowing me to play, let alone compete. There was a time when I wondered if I would be able to play golf competitively again. Thankfully those days are well behind me and I'm back very close to my best. James is an integral and very valued member of my team.' 

Lucie Sharp, Burgess Hill

'I sought the services of James, on advice from my midwife that my son would benefit from seeing a cranial osteopath, due to a quick delivery, tightness in his head and neck and struggling to breast feed. James came highly recommended from friends and family that had also benefited from using him.

In our first session James suggested I have my son checked for posterior tongue-tie which after investigation was the case. After two to three sessions his neck was relaxed and he could move his head to look both ways instead of fixed one way. He was calm and settled he slept through the night and is still very much a good sleeper.

I decided to take my second child to James as she was very unsettled and would scream for hours on end. After James' sessions she was happy and would give me some hours peace. With James' help we came to the conclusion of an allergy and now is happy on her dairy free diet. Without James she would have just been written off as a colicky baby. 

I cannot thank James enough and would highly recommend his services.' 

Alex Olds, Hayward Heath
