Welcome to the Moore Health Clinic. Ashling Casey-Moore has been in practice since 1998. Ashling works out of 3 clinics - in Tuckton (Bournemouth BH6), Penn Hill, (Poole BH14) and Lymington (SO41).
The clinic is fundamentally Osteopathic. 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. Osteopaths are highly competent healthcare professionals, 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 CPD.
Over 30,000 people every day visit an osteopath suffering from a variety of conditions including neck or 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, you will typically be able to see an osteopath/medical acupuncturist 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.
Ashling Casey-Moore, D.O., BMAS
Ashling is the practice Principal. 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 the Active Acupuncturitsts in General Practice & Hospitals (AAGH) and the British Medical Acupuncture Society (BMAS). More recently she has trained as an NLP Practitioner, a SIRPA Practitioner, a Clinical Hypnotherapist and a Level 3 Mental Health First Aider.
Ashling 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 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 to work 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 to work within another clinic in Penn Hill, Poole.
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/Naturopath.
Ashling loves her job and has a special interest in treating pregnant women, the elderly and people with chronic pain. Local midwives regularly refer pregnant women to her, but 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 Intolerance 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. You can then choose to stay and wait for the results or leave and have them given to you later that day. 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, who will tailor-make a programme just for you and your specific needs.
What to expect at your first visit
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).
