What is osteopathy?

Osteopathy is an established system of manipulative therapy, recognised as a clinical discipline by the British Medical Association.

It is founded on the belief that the body has an innate ability to heal itself, naturally.

Unfortunately, the body can be prevented from healing itself by stress and tension, caused by anything from bad posture and breathing habits to physical trauma and the cumulative effects of everyday lifestyle.

In theory, if left untreated, these stresses will generate chronic pain and fatigue, digestion difficulties, headaches and many more symptoms (listed opposite) which can compromise your enjoyment of life.

Osteopathy aims to restore everyday health and vitality by diagnosing the source of such problems and then applying the appropriate treatment.

This treatment involves the skilled manipulation of bones, muscles, ligaments, joints and even organs to relieve pain, restore movement and so enhance your quality of life.

Many treatment techniques are very gentle, so osteopathy is naturally safe and suitable for people of all ages: babies, children, adults, pre-and post-natal women and the elderly.
