Welcome to the Moore Health Clinic. Ashling Casey-Moore has been in practice since 1998. She works at 3 clinics - in Winchester (SO23), Penn Hill (Poole BH14), Lymington (SO41), and offers home, work place, and residential care visits.
The clinic is fundamentally Osteopathic & Acupuncture treatment based. Osteopathy is a gentle and effective hands-on approach to healthcare, based on the principle that the way your body moves influences how it functions. "As the wind blows, the tree grows". Osteopaths are highly competent Allied Healthcare Professionals ("AHP's"), recognised by the NHS as fully qualified to diagnose and treat independently. Osteopaths are statutorily regulated. No-one can call themselves an osteopath if they are not on the osteopathic register, fully-insured and up to date with their continued professional development "CPD". Ashling also has an enhanced DRB certification which is regularly updated.
Every day over 30,000 people visit an osteopath. They're suffering from a variety of conditions including neck, pelvic, elbow, and back pain, joint, or muscular pain, sports injuries, recurring headaches and more. Many patients are pregnant mothers, unsettled children, or those with work strain, or pain and stiffness related to advancing years.
Western medical acupuncture is a therapeutic modality involving the insertion of fine needles; it is an adaptation of Chinese acupuncture using current knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathology, and the principles of evidence based medicine.
As you don’t need a referral from your doctor to see an osteopath or an acupuncturist, you will typically be able to get a face to face appointment quickly, without the long waiting times that often occur with other treatment options.
Whatever your age and no matter what challenges you may have with your health, there is probably something an osteopath/acupuncturist can do to help. Call 07974247088 today to find out more or book using this link...
Our Practitioners - Bio
Ashling Casey-Moore, D.O., BMAS
Ashling, the practice Principal, qualified over 25 years ago. She is a GOsC registered Osteopath, having trained at the both the British School of Osteopathy (BSO) and the College of Osteopaths (COET). She simultaneously trained as a Naturopath, and post-grad as a Medical Acupuncturist, with Active Acupuncturists in General Practice & Hospitals (AAGH) and the British Medical Acupuncture Society (BMAS). She underwent post-grad training at The Osteopathic Centre for Children, then located in Harley Street, before the training there was formally coined as a "diploma in paediatric osteopathy". More recently she has trained as an NLP Practitioner, a SIRPA (chronic pain) Practitioner, a Clinical Hypnotherapist, a Level 3 Mental Health First Aider, a Pre & Post Natal Yoga Teacher, a Baby Massage Teacher, an NHS Vaccinator, and a Track & Tracer to support the NHS Covid protocols.
Ashling has moved home and countries many times. She has a wealth of experience having worked in Harley Street at the Osteopathic Centre for Children; in a hospital and clinic in New Delhi, India; had her own practice within "The Feel Good Factory" in Clapham Junction and when that closed, set up the first "Moore Health Clinic" in Battersea. She moved to Ringwood in 2007, working from home, at "The Ringwood Health Clinic" and "Scoltocks". In 2017, she began working in Lymington at the Wessex Clinic. In 2018, she opened a new clinic, The Moore Health Clinic, in Tuckton, Bournemouth, and in 2020 expanded further, renting a room within another clinic in Penn Hill, Poole. Due to a change in her daughter's schooling, Ashling and family moved yet again, this time to Winchester. Ashling is busy setting up to help patients locally and is looking for a room from which to practice in the centre of Winchester.
Ashling's background is diverse. She has worked in TV, Insurance, Oil Trading, Executive Search, Marketing, Catering, and Treasury Management. A horse-riding accident prompted Ashling to discover the benefits of Osteopathy first hand and shortly afterwards she made the decision to undergo the long retraining to become an Osteopath and Naturopath and continues to add different treatment modalities to her armoury of therapies.
Ashling loves her job and has a special interest in treating pregnant women, the elderly, and people in chronic pain. Local midwives regularly refer pregnant women to her, and in general the vast majority of patients come via word of mouth. During her five year Osteopathy/Naturopathy training, she also became qualified in Medical Acupuncture. She continues to learn constantly whilst fulfilling osteopaths' and acupuncturists' obligatory 30 hours a year of continued professional development. CPD courses undertaken include first aid, osteopathic techniques for the neck, the upper back, the lower back, taping for sports injuries, acupuncture and pregnancy, SPD/pelvic ring dysfunction, ear nose and throat problems in children, visceral osteopathic techniques, nutrition, exercise programmes, acupuncture and fertility (with Zita West), menopause (with Marilyn Glenville), Acupuncture for palliative care; headaches, and lots more...

Food Sensitivity Tests
If you are prepared to have a minute amount of blood taken from a finger via a pin-prick, then you can find out which commonly eaten foods your body doesn't "like" and has made anti-bodies against. Most people have an idea that they know what is causing their symptoms - the most common being cited as wheat, milk or eggs, but wouldn't it be great to actually know! It's amazing how many people have been living with very restricted diets when they probably don't need to!
In every situation a full case history is taken and then, assuming it is safe to do so, the blood test will be done. Results will be available within 48 hours of doing the test. You need to have eaten a full range of foods for at least 2 weeks to get an accurate test result.
If you need further advice then you can make a booking with our Institute of Optimal Nutrition trained Nutritionist, Susan Davis, who will tailor-make a programme just for you and your specific needs.
What to expect at your first visit
Update - 2020 COVID regs - a case history form will be sent to you via email on booking. This is to facilitate hands on time, not form filling when face to face.
The first visit will take longer than subsequent visits, the reason being we want to give you the time you need to tell us your story so we can fill in a detailed case history. Please bring copies of results of hospital investigations such as MRI scans, CAT scans and X-rays and a list of any current medication.
Following the case history taking you may need some clinical tests such as blood pressure readings or neurological testing, which we will do there and then. Assuming you are safe to treat (if not you will be referred back to your GP for further investigation), you will then be examined. This involves undressing to your underwear so we can see what is happening to the joints and muscles when you move. If you are uncomfortable with this then please wear shorts and a loose-fitting T-shirt.
You will be told what the findings are and the proposed treatment plan. Treatment will then commence.
Whilst your baby would have been screened after birth, many parents choose to bring their babies to us for an osteopathic check-up if they had a difficult pregnancy or delivery (long or very fast delivery; ventouse; forceps; caesarian).
