About Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a safe, gentle and non-invasive form of manual therapy and diagnosis.  It improves how well your body is working, which can reduce pain and help you achieve your goals in life.

Each area of your body is dependent on many other areas and body systems in order to stay healthy. As a result your whole body and lifestyle form a web of interconnected causes and effects which work best when kept in balance, and which are also unique to you.

If you have symptoms, Osteopathy can explain how they have arisen and are maintained through imbalances in this web. Osteopathic treatment then uses a combination of hands-on techniques, home exercises, and advice – all individually tailored to you – to help restore balance and resolve your symptoms.

However, Osteopathy can go beyond just helping resolve troublesome symptoms. By reducing ingrained strain patterns which contribute to bad technique, it can help you achieve a sense of relaxed and balanced strength, allowing you to more fully utilise your potential, optimise performance and reduce the chance of injury in sports and other recreational activities.
