Exciting Developments at Shrewsbury Osteopaths


We hope this site provides you with all the information you need on what Osteopathy is and how it may be able to help you and your family. If you have any questions or want to discuss things further please do get in contact.

Who we are

Susan and Richard Allen set up their Osteopathic Practice in 1979, the longest established practice in Shropshire. They each have extensive post graduate training in cranial Osteopathy and have been teaching and tutoring on post graduate cranial courses since 1985.

Why try Osteopathy

95% of our new patients come because of recommendation by existing patients, doctors or midwives. One of the reasons for this, is that we often succeed in assisting recovery where other treatments have failed.

Richard & Susan Allen are thrilled that Richard & Rowan Metliss have returned from Canada to join the family practice with Henry & Amie Allen to continue the legacy that the Allen's have built over the last 40 years. Richard & Rowan have run their own clinic for 10 years in Canada and now bring their own experiences to the practice. 

Rowan is Richard & Susan's Allen's daughter and met Richard Metliss at university. Rowan worked at the practice previously for 3 years between 2005 - 2008 and Richard worked there in 2005. They both specialize in exactly the same gentle method of osteopathy that the practice is known for and have had extensive post graduate training with the Allen's and other key teachers.  

Amie Allen has now fully returned from maternity leave. Amie's return from maternity and the addition of Richard & Rowan joining the practice will expand the capacity of the clinic. This will create more availability for patients to be seen and will reduce waiting time for new patients and ongoing appointments. 

Susan Allen will be focusing on the treatment of babies, children, pregnant and post partum women. This is an aspect of Susan's practice which she is passionate about and has specialized in for many years. 

After over 30 years in practice and 10 years working with the Allen's, Fiona Dunmore is relocating to Scotland this year and will continue to work at the practice one day a week until she leaves.
