I have gone to countless osteopaths, chiropractors and massage therapists about my chronic neck and back pain. Spending 70% of the time travelling for work, sitting on airplanes and sitting at the computer, when my neck and back goes out it can be very painful and debilitating. West 12 Health Centre is the first place and its no-nonsense-yet-caring owner's approach is not to keep you coming back over and over again but to fix the problem. Fix it he did. In two sessions, not only was the injury fixed, it has yet to come back since. Very rare for any osteo - I will never go to anyone else should I even need it again. Life saver!
I was suffering from terrible abdominal & groinal pain for 3 months which I just could not seem to shake. I'd seen several doctors & they all told me it was a muscle strain which would heal in time. I rested completely for 1 month & saw no improvement. As I was desperate to get back to playing football I sought out alternative help. As luck would have it, I stumbled across West12. I was a tad sceptical about osteopathy initially but any doubts I had were assuaged after my 1st session with Balraj. He is an extremely knowledgable & dedicated individual who has honed his craft. I saw him for little over 2 months & I finished my treatment feeling better than ever. The therapy he gave coupled with the work we did in the gym & general advice offered has been instrumental in reaching this point. I can't thank him enough. If I ever have any issues in future he will no doubt be my first port of call. If you come to Balraj with an open mind & listen to exactly what he tells you, the desired results are inevitable. Highly recommended.
ATTENTION - change your Osteopath to West 12 Immediately!!! I discovered Balraj through my girlfriend, who found him by chance online. He is by far the best Osteopath's I have been to in London. His attention to what is wrong with your body and more importantly what needs to be done to your body is amazing. He used acupuncture as part of healing and it worked so well. I cannot rate and/or recommend him high enough
I was visiting London from the States and turned over in the night and ended up with a very painful back for the next few days. I found Balraj via the reviews here on Google, and I'm happy to report they were accurate regarding his knowledge, advice, helpfulness, and professionalism. I chatted with him personally online via his website chat program about my issue and scheduled an appointment with him. When I visited, he promptly saw me, jotted a few details down, and discussed the issue in depth. After a quick analysis, he found it was a simple muscle spasm and knot which he worked out with some deep tissue work and a few small chiropractic adjustments. He told me exactly how I'd feel that evening and the next day, and within a couple days my issue was resolved. I highly recommend Balraj for sports injuries, muscle or chiropractic. And being from the U.S., I wasn't sure what to expect, but was very happy with everything. Obviously 5 stars and a great review was warranted.
I would like to take this opportunity to brag about my amazing osteopathic treatments and thank Balraj Sohal for always making time for me and for fixing the broken me. After having numerous MVAs and chronic pains, and when no other treatments help, I have found that osteopathy is the key answer to it all. I was lucky enough to have found the West 12th Health Centre and Balraj Sohal as my therapist. Balraj is a knowledgable, carrying and hands on therapist. I would walk into the appointment room with aches and pains and would walk out as the new, relaxed and pain free me. If you need help with any type of injury and/or chronic pain or simply need advice for a healthier, happier and better future you, Balraj is your go to person. I would definitely recommend the West 12th Health Centre and Balraj especially! Looking forward to my next appointment. Thank you Balraj!
I had terrible back pain and was looking for an osteopath urgently in west London and found West 12 Health just 20 min walk from my house. Once there I met Balraj and he very kindly offered me his services. He used a range of techniques including accupunture and special movements and my back felt a lot better. After two sesions I had recovered 100%. He gave me great recommendations for selfcare and this help me get better faster.
Great professional and great treatment! I came to them with a horrible pain in my back and it is completely gone now 🙂 if you attend your appointments and follow the exercise routines they give you to practise at home, I am really sure you will heal quickly and well. Absolutely recommended. Gran servicio!! Acudí a ellos con un fuerte dolor en la espalda y ha desaparecido por completo 😀 Si acompañáis el tratamiento con las rutinas de ejercicios que os dan para seguir en casa estoy segura que, cualquiera que sea vuestro problema mejorará rápidamente.

I have had lower back pain for about 4 months now going through my leg into my knee and its been hard to sleep some days. Balraj has not only taken the pain away in a few sessions but he also has given me some home exercises to do in order to prevent it happening again. Great service, super clean modern facility, he was very kind and i have been pain free for 2 weeks now. Would recommend to everyone.
"Great service, my back feels much better! Balraj was super friendly and explained everything as we went along as it was my first Osteopathy session. Would definitely recommend!"
Balraj is friendly and very professional. He sorted out my back problem in two visits, I couldn't be more thrilled as I can now sleep through the night without waking up in pain!

I came about two months ago with severe pains in my knee, the pain was so bad it started hurting for both and I was desperate to make it better. Passionate by sport, I was not willing to stop but the different doctors I saw previously all told me to stop it for few months, which I did with no results. I decided to try other solutions and to go to see an osteopath, I was very sceptical at the beginning as in my country they don’t have the best reputation. However, I was really happy after my first session, as Balraj never told me to stop sport and gave me exercise to help the healing process and the therapy actually healed me completely after only 2 months. Today, I can do sport even if I’m still careful and almost with no straps, even when I’m running and I did not have pain in my knee since which was exactly the results I wanted so I strongly recommend him!

I used to play a lot of sport and after working long hours in the city sat in front of the computer my posture got really bad and I developed chronic back pain. I tried a lot of things to get it better but nothing worked and most things actually made it worse. I had almost given up when a friend recommended that I see Balraj. I wasn't sure if going to see him would help me but honestly just one visit to his West 12 Health Clinic really changed my life! Balraj was so kind and after just one session the pain was so much better. I now go regularly and the pain and stiffness have completely gone! I couldn't be happier and couldn't recommend Balraj and the West 12 Health Clinic enough! Thank you!!!! Instagram:@abigirlx

I thoroughly recommend West 12 Health's services. I came with shoulder and neck pain that was stopping me from doing just about anything. Balraj was very professional and listened before releasing the areas and providing me with exercises to increase mobility in my upper back. I'm now virtually pain free after a few treatments and very happy with the service I received. Thanks!

Former Italian National Boxer - I damaged my ankle from boxing and put up with it for a long time until I went to the west 12 health centre, where they provided me with a diagnosis and clear rehabilitation in the gym there. The team were diligent and thorough and I have left back to Italy with a clear idea of what I have to keep on doing. The ankle feels better already. Thanks to the team at West 12, I'll be back soon!

I had back pain for months that went unexplained by GPs until i was finally diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis. I was given the diagnosis without explanation other than a few leaflets. Balraj took the time to explain the condition and that it was manageable with some changes to my lifestyle. His treatment and advice on changes to my lifestyle have helped me manage the condition well and i thoroughly recommend his clinic.
