What is Osteopathy

Osteopathy focusses on the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal problems and the effects that these can have on your general health.

Osteopaths view the body as a complete, interdependent structure and are known for treating muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints as well as spinal problems.
We take a broad view of your health and look at all aspects of your life in relation to the symptoms you are experiencing. This ensures you receive truly individual care that is tailored to your circumstances. This means considering how your medical history, lifestyle and work environment may be impacting you. 

Osteopathic treatments can help to reduce back, neck, knee and shoulder pain, as well as some pain caused by arthritis.

What is classical

Classical Osteopathy can be as robust or as gentle as needed, and adapted as the treatment process progresses.  This makes it suitable for all ages, including people with medical conditions.

What is cranial

Cranial Osteopathy is a non-invasive form of treatment, making it particularly suitable for those pregnant, post-partum mums and their babies.
