Encouraging whole body health through tailored 'hands-on' treatment to suit each individual

Osteopathy is a whole body, multi-system approach predominantly using manual 'hands-on' therapy on the musculo-skeletal system. It places emphasis on the structural and functional integrity of the body and through a broad range of techniques, encourages the bodys ability to heal itself. Osteopaths approach and assess the human body as a whole unit rather than separate parts, thus addressing all areas of the body and associated tissues that may be involved rather than just focusing solely on the area of pain, therefore helping to restore equilibrium.

  • - Back and Neck pain

  • - Headaches (Tension, Sinus, etc.) and Migraines

  • - Sciatica

  • - Peripheral joint pain (Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist, Hip, Knee, Ankle, etc.)
