Welcome to Mulberry Osteopaths
We’re getting there . . . .
It’s great that we have some reception cover again so there will be someone at the reception desk to answer your calls if you need to phone in. The phones should be manned during the mornings from Monday to Friday.
It continues to be very busy so there maybe a longer delay than normal to get an appointment especially if you are wanting to book in with a particular osteopath. However, the diary seems to be constantly changing as a result of patients needing to change or cancel appointments so it is worth while keeping an eye on the MindBody app to see what appointments are available. Of course you can also ask reception to keep your name on a waiting list so that they can contact you if a space becomes available.
Mulberry Osteopaths Coronavirus Update.
Friday 15th April 2022
Face masks are still in place at the moment for Osteopaths and patients (unless exempted). We’re also still leaving gaps between appointments so that we can wipe down surfaces and maintain hygiene measures. For initial consultations with new patients, because we are generally still keeping treatment times to 30 minutes, we are continuing with the short telephone consultations in advance of the face to face appointments.
Since returning at the beginning of July 2020 we’re now well in to the new way of working. We’re not back to ‘normal’ and probably won’t be for some time to come but we’re working well and things have been very busy.
Reception cover is still limited for the moment although there will be someone taking calls during the mornings. Remote reception cover is in place so e-mails will be picked up and answered. E-mail is still probably the best way to contact us just now. For the time being the waiting room and reception area is not open to patients and we will continue to collect patients from the entrance hall of the building.

Telephone messages will be picked up periodically but e-mail remains the preferred way to contact us.
Patrick Harding formed Mulberry Osteopaths in 1999. We now have a team of three Osteopaths working at Mulberry House in the West End of Edinburgh.
Osteopathy is a safe and natural therapy that focuses on the framework of the body consisting of the bones, ligaments, muscles and connective tissues or fascia. Osteopaths assess the condition of this musculo-skeletal system looking for areas of imbalance or excessive strain. Any imbalance within the system will determine how well the body functions and will also have an influence on the general health of the whole body.
Osteopaths have become well known for treating back problems because they are so good at it, however, many other conditions can be very successfully treated with osteopathy. The musculo- skeletal system forms the framework that carries the body’s network of nerves, blood vessels and lymphatics. It also physically supports the internal organs. The health of the musculo-skeletal system influences the health of the rest of the body.
Osteopathic treatment aimed at improving the mechanics of the body will affect such things as blood and nerve supply as well as activity of the internal organs. It is because of this that osteopathy, as well as treating the more obvious headaches,joint problems, sports injuries and postural strains, can also improve general health.
At Mulberry Osteopaths the emphasis is with ‘hands-on’ treatment which will be backed up with self help approaches such as the prescription of exercises and postural advice. We would hope that by offering you a better understanding of how the body is functioning we may help you to avoid recurring problems.
