The Clinic

St Davids Osteopath

Our premises in Exeter

We're based at 6 Baring Crescent in one of the last three remaining Georgian crescents in the city. We have free parking behind the premises for patients.


We have no dedicated disabled access to the building though we can make arrangements to be treated on the ground floor.

In addition we can provide home visits on request - please phone us.

Toys and books

We do have some, but you may prefer to bring your own for your child.

History of the Osteopathic clinic in Exeter

Established by Colin Crewdson in 1985 in Richmond Rd near the Exeter Clock Tower. After joining forces with Warwick Downes, we moved to Walnut Gardens in 1996, sharing premises with BBC Radio Devon. There we were joined by Paul Thompson and David Stainer-Smith. We relocated to our current premises at 6 Baring Crescent in September 2014. Warwick Downes made the decision to retire in January 2016.

Our colleagues

Sharing our clinic space is the well-respected Clinic of Chinese Medicine, run by Simon King and Jennie Dallas. Simon and Jennie have been with us since our move to our present building, working with both acupuncture and Chinese herbs, and providing us with invaluable additional perspectives to difficult clinical problems.

Also with us are:

As a group of highly motivated professionals, we are able to cross-refer when this is helpful clinically.
