Natural treatments for pain in Falkirk and Stirling

Mary Monro

Mary has been an osteopath since 1999, when she qualified from the University College of Osteopathy as top of her class. She recently moved to Edinburgh from Wiltshire and is loving the change of scene. She uses the very gentle, so called ‘cranial’ osteopathic approach.

Much of her post-graduate study has been devoted to honing these skills, including completing the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy’s 250 hr Pathway, studies in Biodynamic Osteopathy and gaining a Masters degree in Paediatric Osteopathy. This type of care is well suited to babies, children, older patients, complex or long-standing problems, coping with stress and emotional issues and health maintenance.

Mary is interested in your life history, lifestyle, current stresses and how things came to be troublesome today. She especially enjoys meeting whole families – caring for grandparents, parents, children, newborns and sometimes the family pets too (she treats horses and dogs as well as people). Some of her patients have been with her since the very start of her practice in Wiltshire, 20 years ago, and she loves the depth of relationship that that long connection brings.

Outside work she has had a lifelong love of horses and dogs, enjoys cinema, theatre, learning languages and hiking in the hills with her husband. She is looking forward to exploring Scotland’s natural beauty and rich culture.

It is hard to find a more friendly, professional and dedicated to wellness team than this. Helen and Dave have restored my youth...or at least my ability to move and enjoy playing with my son. I cannot thank you enough!

As a musician I live with the a lot of aches and pains. I've tried many many things over the years to feel better. David McCabe has changed my life and given me relief and freedom in my body that I'd given up hope of ever feeling. David and Helen are the nicest people you could meet but are also thoroughly professional and brilliant at what they do. I have recommended them to many of my friends and colleagues. Can't thank them enough. Back2Life Clinic is the best. Thank you David and Helen.

My life was on hold due to chronic back pain and I lost 4 years of my life waiting for the NHS to help/cure me. After a recommendation I visited the Back2Life clinic. After just 3 months I was able to work again and since then I finally got married and had a baby. The name says it all.... They really did help me Back2Life!

Very professional and welcoming. Took my 12 week baby as he was having problems 'winding'. After 2 sessions with Helen he is so much better - so much happier and I don't dread feeding times and endless hours of trying to wind. Highly recommend trying if you have a wee one with colicky symptoms.

Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading

View our COVID-19 Policy

Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:

  • shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
  • one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
  • any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
  • travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home

Important

These 4 reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household.

In response to current guidance, Helen and David have taken the difficult decision to temporarily cease face to face consultations at Back2Life Clinics as of 9 am on Monday 23 March 2020.

We will instead be offering online services using video calls. These have proved invaluable to patients benefitting from diagnosis, reassurance, lifestyle and exercise advice with personalised exercise sheets delivered via email.

In taking this decision, we have weighed up the benefit of face to face consultations versus the risk of increasing spread of coronavirus. Our priority is the wellbeing of our patients, staff and the wider community. We anticipate that we will continue to deliver high-quality care for people with aches, pains and stiffness.
