About Osteopathy

OSTEOPATHY is a form of therapy that uses a wide range manual techniques, tailored to the individual, to treat underlying structural causes of pain and discomfort. It enhances the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Treatment may involve relaxing massage techniques to reduce tension in the muscles, gentle joint articulation to encourage mobility and joint manipulation if a particular joint is not moving well. Cranial osteopathy is also available and another very gentle way of treating the body (see below). We will discuss with you the best approach and you may also be given exercises, postural and lifestyle advice.

We frequently work alongside other health professionals both orthodox and complementary to achieve the best results for your health issues. 

All osteopaths have to be fully qualified and registered with the General Osteopathic Council which regulates the profession. For more information on this and our training please visit its website at www.osteopathy.org.uk
