She then provides a wealth of practical guidance and exercises to reinforce the treatment between sessions.

All the practitioners are fully registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOSC) and recognised by all major health insurance companies.

 

Osteopathy recognises the importance of the link between the structure of the human body and the way it functions. Osteopaths focus on the body's skeleton and joint function along with the underlying muscles, soft tissue and internal organs.

 

Osteopaths consider each person as an individual. Utilising a highly developed sense of touch, they identify problem areas of the body. Using gentle stretching and mobilising techniques as well as manipulating joints, an osteopath works with the body to create the optimal conditions to facilitate the healing process.

 

Treatment usually consists of a combination of soft-tissue releasing techniques and some specific manipulation to joints and soft-tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments). Advice is also given on self-help treatments and exercises.

 

Osteopaths treat a variety of common conditions including back pain, head aches, changes to posture in pregnancy, babies with colic or sleeplessness, repetitive strain injury, postural problems caused by driving or work strain, the pain of arthritis and sports injuries.
