What Is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a manual therapy used to treat musculo-skeletal dysfunctions, in humans and in animals.
The aim of Osteopathy is to promote optimal health and remove barriers to healing by ensuring that the physical structure of the body (mainly the muscles, joints, nerves and internal organs) is in its best possible condition. This enables the body to heal it-self. It can be used as a natural form of pain relief.
What to expect from you osteopathic treatment
In my clinic I use a range of traditional techniques including mobilisation, articulation, soft tissue work (Like deep massage), and manipulation (If necessary). I also treat using cranial techniques which are very gentle yet can be very effective. Cranial Osteopathic techniques are applicable to bone, muscle, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and organs.
There is evidence to show that Osteopathy can help treat:
Arthritic pain, Muscle spasms, neck ache, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatic pain, Whiplash, Back ache, Circulatory Problems, Digestion problems, Lumbago, Neuralgia, Sciatica, Inability to relax, Minor sports injuries, Aches and Pains, Back pain, Cramp, Joint pains.

Please note that thorough assessment and treatment may require you to partially undress, possibly to your underwear. Please dress comfortably, wearing shorts if you wish, and note that your wishes in regards to modesty will always be respected.
