“Rona was very welcoming and I felt very relaxed in her company”
Lynne Tuley, Ferndown
“…whatever my body ‘throws’ at Rona, she is able to give a precise and reliable diagnosis, followed by appropriate treatment”
Amanda Ivens-Smith, Downton
Rona Jones is a very safe pair of hands.”

I graduated from the British College of Osteopathic Medicine (BCOM) in 2005 with first class honours.
Since qualifying, I have taken several specialist courses including cranial osteopathy, paediatric osteopathy, pregnancy and post-natal osteopathy, medical acupuncture and Dynamic Taping. I am also a Pilates instructor and hold weekly classes in Wimborne.
As part of my training at BCOM, I studied nutrition and naturopathy and can advise you on natural ways to help manage conditions such as raised cholesterol, osteoarthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, increased blood pressure and circulatory problems. I have a particular interest in women’s health.
I especially enjoy treating pelvic and sacro-iliac problems and running injuries as well as shoulder conditions and headaches. I like to work using a variety of techniques depending on the patient and his or her presenting symptoms.
I love being an osteopath because
It is so varied and offers endless opportunities for more study. I find it incredibly rewarding to help people improve their health and see the healing power of nature at work. Our bodies are truly amazing.
Why I chose osteopathy
My first career was as a solicitor. When I had some treatment for a running injury I thought the osteopath’s job seemed much more interesting than mine so I decided to retrain.
I am fascinated by how the body works – and how and why it sometimes doesn’t! I love the challenge of treating a wide variety of patients. I like to really get to know my patients and offer them exercise, lifestyle and nutritional advice to increase the effectiveness of treatment and to prevent their problem from coming back – and hopefully prevent others from arising.
I love being part of the local community and try to support other local businesses as much as possible. If we don’t support them, they won’t survive.
I believe you need to lead by example and I try to look after my own health, without being obsessive. Like our Facebook page to see regular posts on staying healthy.
I am married to Nick who teaches at Canford School and we have two children who keep us very busy and bring us great joy. We have a retired greyhound, Molly, who is very lazy but she is still a great reason to go out for a walk, whatever the weather.
When I am not at work
I enjoy running and compete in local events up to and including half marathons. To date, I have managed to resist all pressure to run the full 26.2 miles. Nowadays, I mostly run on the trails and love exploring the local countryside.
I am also addicted to knitting and crochet!
Wimborne Osteopathic Clinic is growing (mostly through word of mouth, thank you all so much) and I look forward to running a full-time clinic in the not-so-distant future.
Over the next few years I plan to continue studying the science of pain and find new ways to help patients with longer term conditions.
