Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It works with the structure and function of the body, and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together.
To an osteopath, for your body to work well, its structure must also work well. We use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints and to relieve muscle tension. This may also enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and help your body’s own healing mechanisms. We may also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.
Consultations will take approximately 30 minutes. If you want to find out more, we will be happy to talk to you.
