About Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a unique system of diagnosis and treatment, a patient-centred therapy that lays its main emphasis on the structural integrity of the body. It is a way of detecting and treating damaged parts of the body and thus alleviating pain in tissues such as muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints.

When the body is balanced and aligned it will function efficiently with the minimum of wear, stress and energy, thereby reducing pain and disease. It is our aim as osteopaths to achieve such balance.

Our osteopath can typically treat the main cause for symptoms such as migraine, heartburn, asthma, IBS, constipation, dietary sensitivities, headache, backache, neckache, and even mental health aspects such as anxiety and depression – the list is long.

 

Adult Osteopathy

Our main strength lies in the unique way that the patient is assessed, from a mechanical, functional and postural (a holistic) point of view.

The treatment you receive will be tailor-made to your individual condition. We combine a variety of different techniques depending on what will best aid your recovery and reduce your pain. This includes spinal and cranial osteopathy, soft tissue massage, mobilisation, dietary advice, postural and ergonomic support, specific exercises and stretches and dry needling/acupuncture. For certain conditions like pregnancy or IBS, for example, the osteopath might suggest you also have another therapy to ensure a swift and full recovery, like massage, reflexology or colonic irrigation.

Cranial Osteopathy

Cranial osteopathy is a refined and subtle type of osteopathic treatment that uses very gentle manipulative pressure to encourage the release of stresses throughout the body, including the head.

At the time of its discovery, it was thought only to work on the head/cranium, hence its name. Because it is gentle, this type of treatment is suitable for everyone from newborn babies to the very elderly.

 

Osteopathy for Babies

The body of a little one goes through an enormous transition to life in the outside world. This can result in minor or even major disruptive issues, such as digestion problems, colic, positioning of joints or trouble with head turning.

Osteopathy is an excellent, natural tool to get your young ones on the road to good health and prevent them from potentially having problems later on, which could result in numerous painful, not to mention costly, treatments.

Our Osteopath is specially trained to be able to treat even the youngest of infants.

If your child is under two years of age, they will need an Infant Osteopathy appointment.
