Welcome to The Riverside Practice – a centre for healing. Opened in 2008 by Nick Tuckley, a registered Osteopath who has been treating patients in this area for over 30 years, the Practice has expanded to include a broad range of therapies that can benefit everyone from newborn babies to the very elderly, covering a wide range of conditions.
What our patients have said
Nick’s treatments are a curious combination of feeling very gentle whilst at the same time being profoundly effective. Over the past 8 years, Nick has successfully treated me for a wide range of problems and I would not hesitate to recommend him.
Nick transformed my life from being in continual pain for years
to be able to resume my former active life again.
After 10 years of recurring lower back pain, after a couple of treatments with Nick, I experienced instant relief … and have been pain free ever since!
I highly recommend Nick Tuckley to anyone suffering with similar!
Dr Still (1828-1917), physician and surgeon, was the founder of osteopathy. He was an ardent observer of nature and interested in the health that is found in the body; the ‘normal’ that over-rides any dysfunction. His goal was to use natural principles, with manual techniques, to re-establish normal structure and function- to facilitate the delivery of health to tissues.
At the Riverside we use principles found within the cranial concept of osteopathy. We establish a pivotal contact with particular structures in order to create a process of self correction.
Robert Lever DO, “However much our therapeutic discipline is structured, however complex its rules and protocols, there is something in the stance of 'not knowing' that couples with the stillness created in the therapeutic moment that engenders change.”

Acupuncture is an ancient traditional medicine that has become widely accepted by the medical profession as an effective treatment for a broad range of problems and illnesses. These include infertility, back and joint problems, migraines, sleep problems, hayfever and other allergies, anxiety and stress, digestive disorders, and many more conditions.
Acupuncture can also be used as a treatment for restoring good health, for example after flu, or for fatigue and the ill effects of stress. It can also be used as a support during pregnancy and for treating nausea.

Pilates is a form of exercise, developed by Joseph Pilates, which emphasises the balanced development of the body through core strength, flexibility, and awareness in order to support efficient, graceful movement. Pilates is a holistic exercise method, designed to elongate, strengthen and condition the body. It suits all ages and fitness levels and is helpful for overall wellbeing and general fitness.
It targets the deep postural muscles of the abdomen and spine and focuses on improving postural awareness, coordination, endurance and breathing control using gentle exercises and stretches. It can assist recovery from injury and muscular pain and prevent reoccurrence.
Book an appointment with Alison Beckett
Alison provides both pilates and physiotherapy in one package. Because she is a fully qualified physio you feel completely safe with all the movements. Pilates has given me back movement in my spine and upper back, more strength in my legs and a feeling of wellbeing. After years of pain in my lower back, hips and knees, pilates really has been a life-changer.
I have been working with Alison on my lower back and hip pain for several months now and she has really helped me.
My discomfort is greatly reduced and mobility is increased. Thanks for all your help Alison and look forward to our next session.
Alison is a gifted and experienced physiotherapist and pilates teacher. She is always well prepared and makes every session enjoyable, building from the one before, but also responding sensitively to the needs of the moment. I don’t know how I would have recovered the full use of my arm (after injury) without Alison’s help. She really knows what she is doing.
