Using hands-on manipulation of tissues to restore health and function, osteopathy can help alleviate pain and discomfort from a wide range of problems.
Gentle, non-invasive manual techniques are used to increase the mobility of joints, relieve muscle tensions and enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, encouraging the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
Osteopaths use a holistic approach and believe that structural balance is integral to a well-functioning body. Focused on resolving tension and strain within the body, we aim to unravel the root cause of symptoms, providing a more global understanding of the causative factors and how they can be resolved.
To aid recovery and prevent recurrence of symptoms, stretching, strengthening or mobility exercises are often suggested as well as advice on posture, nutrition, ergonomics and lifestyle.
