Phillip Tanswell DO

Phillip opened Long Melford Osteopaths in 1983 and has grown to serve a large area of Suffolk with a hands-on approach that focuses on the individual. His career started when he practiced as a nurse in London in the late 70s. Having developed general medical understanding, he went on to study osteopathy, eastern and western acupuncture, and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). It is this wide-reaching combination of skill sets that makes Phillip a unique and experienced practitioner, highly capable of helping all levels of patient needs. At various points in Phillips’s career he has been called to sit on the General Osteopathic Council, teach technique and be a clinical examiner at various colleges in the Uk and abroad.
