Osteopathy is a non-invasive, hands-on therapy suitable for people of all ages and from all walks of life, from new-born babies to pregnant women through to the elderly.

Osteopathic treatment concentrates on the relationship between the structure of the body – the bones, muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue – and the way in which the body moves. Many patients choose to attend osteopathy sessions regularly to maintain their overall wellbeing.

Osteopaths use a wide range of gentle manipulations, depending on your age, fitness, and diagnosis. Treatment is different for every patient but may include techniques such as soft tissue massage, muscle stretches and gentle joint movement to release tension, helping to relieve pain, mobilise joints, enhance blood supply to tissues and helping the body to heal.

To an osteopath, the body functions as a complete, working system, so any problem may upset the overall balance of our general health. For this reason, an osteopath will not simply want to ease any pain and stiffness but will also attempt to find out what is causing the pain.

Initial sessions are 60 minutes long with follow up sessions lasting 40 minutes, during your first session we will undertake a full consultation to run through any symptoms you might be experiencing as well as questions about lifestyle.
