My 7 months old son Brody was diagnosed with mild Torticollis and severe Brachycephaly and he had to wear a TMI band helmet. I was recommended by my sister to look into cranial osteopathic on the internet and I found Angel Wellbeing.
Brody tends to arch his back, had bad reflux and sleeps on his back all the time so with the first session with Eglantine, she discovered he had a tense upper body. After Brody's first treatment, there was a noticeable improvement! After the second and third sessions, Brody now sleeps on his sides, enjoys tummy time, has much less reflux and is a much more relaxed happy boy. This helps Brody to wear his helmet with more ease and sleep better in it.
It was a great positive experience for both of us and we enjoyed Eglantine's company and we cannot thank Angel Wellbeing enough, in fact I wish I had known about this earlier when Brody was younger so it would have probably prevented his flat head.
Thank you for your support and assistance!

I work for Islington Council where Annabelle advertises her Practice. It was local to my home and work and the cost for the introduction session was reasonable / affordable. The clinic is clean, the receptionists friendly and welcoming.
From the first time I met Annabelle her warm smile and reassuring manner made me comfortable and at ease. I am usually self-conscious in this sort of situation, but not in this case. I like the fact that Annabelle asked question about my medical health before starting the treatment. I knew then that she was interested in me and my recovery, which has proved to be the case. She helped me to get about without depending on a walking stick and I have even been able to reduce my dependence on pain killers. She shows interest in me as a person and I feel we are working as a team to improve my situation. I know that if I need urgent attention I could text her and she will make time for me.
I have had a couple of massage sessions before where the person did not know or ask about my history and on both occasions I came away in pain but with no relief.
I am so pleased with the service I receive that I have recommended my daughter-in-law mum who is having back problems. She is considering it once she has the results of her X-ray from the hospital. The service is 1st class, staff friendly, professional and skilled. I would confidently recommend them to provide the best care to fit the individual needs.
The clinic is clean and well-kept. Brian is always up for a chat about the subject of your day (he’s a bit of a psychotherapist!). I find his treatment quick and efficient, straight to the point (or cause?).
Receptionists are friendly. Free apples/water/tea coffee. Toys for kids etc. Flexible on appointments/changes, etc.
I started seeing Brian about a year ago with an ongoing back injury that had been aggravated through rugby. Initial weekly sessions brought the problem under control and regular monthly visits plus gyrotonics sessions have ensured that my back problems have receded and I have been able to pursue sports and leisure interests free of pain.
I chose Angel Wellbeing Clinic simply because of the student prices, which are very thoughtful of students, and because of a possibility to take x-rays in the clinic.
The clinic has a welcoming, cozy and laid back atmosphere. Most of all, I trust Brian in what he is doing. That makes me feel comfortable.
The treatment didn't cure my back in a couple of weeks as I would have hoped for, but it has given me a better understanding of my back. Most importantly, during the treatment I have learned that my back cannot be cured by someone else but me. My chiropractor can only help and advice me with that. From now on I would not trust a chiropractor who told me that my back could be cured with a few treatments. The chiropractor Brian will probably tell you that the only person who can cure your back is you. Brian will help you to understand how your back works and how with rather small changes in your life you can influence your back's wellbeing. In addition to basic chiropractic treatment, the pain is treated with acupuncture which, at least in my case, has been very helpful.
I would recommend Angel Wellbeing Clinic for all my family and friends with back problems.
I first attended AWC for a back problem that was starting to cause regular problems and keeping me off work for weeks at a time. Since then (around five years) I have had no problems whatsoever. I have found the clinic and all staff to be friendly, welcoming and highly professional. I really like the fact that not only was my specific problem treated, but my overall lifestyle (posture, exercise, diet etc.) was discussed and very useful, practical advice was given for healthier habits all round.

I had not long turned 51, was used to working hard, proud of my ability to lift huge, heavy boxes on a daily basis when suddenly my back gave out on me. My right leg went completely numb. I could no longer walk on my toes. No more high heels! I suddenly felt old. Pure agony and despair!
What to do? I Google “Chiropractors Islington”, jot down a couple of numbers, and then do a phone around. I instinctively like the sound of the receptionist at the Angel Well Being Clinic – who happened to be Brian’s Mum on the day – and book an appointment.
Joy! A no nonsense approach. I was informed that my problem was a herniated disc. My GP had given me the same diagnosis the day before but couldn’t offer me an immediate solution. Relief - I knew I was on the right track.
I was assessed and given a suggested programme. It was explained to me both physically and financially. It wasn’t a “quick fix”. It wasn’t the cheapest. It’s certainly working though! It’s a mix of manipulation, acupuncture, chat and a personally tailored exercise routine.
9 months on and I’m definitely getting there. I’ve avoided spinal surgery. I’m down to an appointment every other week. I’m back in heels. I’m back on track.

I found Angel Wellbeing Clinic by the internet. I was first sceptical as I am used to the U.S. Chiropractic. I have to say I was very impressed by the professionalism of Brian, my sciatica was almost fixed after 2 visits. I like the way he uses chiropractic techniques and acupuncture. I recommend absolutely his clinic if you have any back problems or sciatica issues.

I chose Angel Wellbeing Clinic because of its central location and affordable treatment sessions. The members of staff were very friendly and helped calm my anxieties about my back pains. Ever since the first treatments I was able to see an improvement and I was out of pain relatively quickly.
I have recommended this clinic to my colleagues at work who experience back pain and I would definitely recommend it to anyone else.
Angel Clinic is very convenient for me to come to and making appointments is straightforward with useful, flexible hours of availability.
The clinic staff are friendly and efficient, and the chiropractic service is n fuss and effective creating a good sense of wellbeing for me.
I would certainly recommend the clinic to others.
I chose Angel Wellbeing Clinic because of its reputation and most of all.. it’s local.
What I like about the clinic … very welcoming and friendly.
For nearly ten years, I suffered from pain in my left shoulder and headaches. After four treatments, the headaches were gone. During the course of my treatment, I was not treated as one of the patients in Brian’s clinic, but someone who wants to get better and he is there to help. But he did not stop there, every treatment he continuously encouraged me to change my lifestyle and attitudes towards work and way of life – not overnight of course!
With the services I received i.e Pauline ringing to remind my appointment, early morning appointments a real bonus – makes me feel good at work after a treatment! Where else can one find these extras? Highly recommended.
I chose Angel Wellbeing because it’s close to where I live for access for work and has brilliant opening times that suit office hours. It’s a small and friendly clinic, so you don’t feel overwhelmed by a formal atmosphere.
What I like most is that the initial consultation covered all sorts of things about my pain that I hadn’t even thought of and that it was a quick turnaround from first appointment to first treatment. Appointments since have been well timed, again around activities going on in my life designed to support whatever I’ve got going on. The great thing is the combination of treatments used – acupuncture as well as chiropractic depending on how I am at a particular time.
It is taking longer than I thought to get to a manageable stage with my back for a return to ‘normal’, but I have taken away tools for managing pain and my body that I use every day with adjustments and additions made as I keep coming back.
I’ve already recommended the services on to a friend looking for acupuncture treatment as the appointment times will also suit her work hours.
Excellent, friendly and informative service. My back feels better after every session & the treatments have undoubtedly helped kept me free from injury & able to continue running!
I have been attending the clinic regularly for several years to relieve chronic back and neck pain related to age and my type of work. After an initial more intensive course of treatment we have settled into a routine which has become an important element of a larger regime of exercise and lifestyle changes which has helped me to effectively manage the condition, with the frequency of treatment now sensibly adjusted to how I am feeling.
I have recommended the clinic to several friends and will continue to do so, both for the evident skill of any given treatment and for the understanding of how the chiropractic work sits within the bigger context of health and well-being.
