A Ruby Anniversary is always cause for celebration. 40 years is a complete triumph of love, faith…and sheer hard work in anyone’s book.
And that’s just as true when it comes to the anniversary of a business. Lymm Osteopathic Practice is reaching that major milestone in the coming month – and Suzette Pulman, its founder and owner is quite rightly extremely proud.
“When the practice first opened in 1979, it’s safe to say that Osteopathy wasn’t the mainstream discipline that it is today. Complementary therapies are now well respected and accepted in the medical world, but in the 70’s, people tended to think of alternative health as something rather unorthodox and eccentric.”
However, despite those early perceptions, Suzette persevered with her work, promoting and building the practice. Those years of self-belief, tenacity and endeavour have now succeeded in creating a popular and thriving business. It’s also true that attitudes have changed considerably.
“Health in this day and age, is seen as more of a treasured commodity than ever. People are more likely to try to take some control themselves – and a sharp focus is now put on well-being and fitness.”
The result is the sort of growth that may have seen unimaginable in those early years.
“The practice now has a large patient base which includes people, not only from Lymm but also from more distant parts of the UK. Our patients come from all walks of life, can be in any age group and could suffer from any number of complaints. The one similarity is that they are usually in pain or discomfort – whether physical or mental – and our aim is to offer relief and advice.”
Today, Lymm Osteopathic Practice means more than just Osteopathy. Although this is an important element of the treatments offered to patients, it now has a whole team of highly qualified, experienced therapists in a range of disciplines, all working together to offer toe to head healthcare.
These include Podiatry, Acupuncture, Reflexology, Massage and Counselling. All of which can be used in isolation…or combined with each other to minimise pain and optimise health benefits.
Therapies work with, rather than replace orthodox forms of treatment, offering the precious advantage of time.
Patients are given more of it as practitioners are more prepared to listen in detail and so reach the root of the problem.
