In 2017 Jo and Ross formed a business partnership and moved the practice to Hale House in order to expand the practice further.

Practitioners. Ross Staff Pic

Ross Gemmell MOst

Ross graduated in 2015 from Leeds Beckett University. On graduation, he was awarded the Deans Prize for Osteopathic Excellence.

Ross first discovered Osteopathy at 16 years of age as a result of an an incident whilst playing football, which left him suffering from low back pain & sciatica. Over the course of 8 months he sought advice from various health care professionals with no improvement, before finally visiting his local Osteopath in Selby where he finally got some pain relief along with a diagnosis for his condition. Ross was extremely impressed at his Osteopath's understanding of the body and how he was able to relieve him of his pain just through hands-on manipulation. So much so, that on Ross' first session with his Osteopath he began questioning what you need to do in order to become an Osteopath, and with a little guidance from him Ross went on to apply for his Osteopathy degree at 18 and has never looked back since.

In order to continue his professional development, he has completed further training in Kinesio-Taping, Dry Needling and Cranial Osteopathy. He has a keen interest in Osteopathic sports care and rehabilitation but likes to treat a wide range of conditions and injuries seeing patients of all ages. He spent two seasons as head of the medical team at a semi-professional football team in West Yorkshire, but left to focus more on his private practice work.

After 2 years at Croft House Clinic, Ross and Jo went into business together in order to move premises to Hale House in 2017 and expand the business. In April 2019 Ross was made a partner at Northallerton Osteopaths.

Ross also works at a clinic in York on Thursdays.

Appointments available Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.




“I cannot recommend Ross and the team enough. I have been seeing Ross for treatment since Spring 2019 for a significant back injury and sciatica and I would never think about going anywhere else. His friendly and enthusiastic approach helps me to feel relaxed and confident in his care. The advice Ross has provided has been of paramount importance to me and my recovery”

The Reception Team

(From left to right) Elaine, Sandra and Maureen make up our wonderful reception team here at Northallerton Osteopaths.

All members of our reception team receive training so that they are educated on the different disciplines offered within the clinic.
Should you be unsure what would be best for you feel free to ask Elaine, Sandra or Maureen what profession they think would be best suited to the issue which has brought you into the clinic.

If you are still left unsure one of our reception team members can pass a message onto one of our practitioners so they can give you a call back if they are not available in person at that time.

As with all practitioners, information shared is kept strictly confidential with our reception team also.




"I would highly recommend this practice, which is easy to locate, clean and modern. My osteopath here really makes you feel at ease during treatment, he is very professional and sympathetic and quickly restored movement to my locked and spasming back. He has gone out of his way to squeeze me in for an emergency appointment when I’ve been in agony with my back. The receptionists are really lovely and it’s pretty easy to get an appointment. Worth every single penny"
Mrs L Mapp, Northallerton
