Osteopathy is a gentle treatment using a variety of hands-on techniques to diagnose and treat structural and bio-mechanical dysfunctions in the body.

As Osteopaths, the emphasis of our treatment is on the whole person and not solely on their symptoms.

We treat muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints and fascia to support the body’s self-healing mechanism, to gently release any strains present, relieve pain and discomfort and improve mobility. We create an individual treatment plan to address each patient’s health needs and support their recovery through education, rehabilitation and body awareness.

We use a range of techniques to accommodate the individual needs of all our patients. These techniques include:

  Soft tissue and myofascial techniques
  Gentle joint manipulation
  Dry Needling
  Trigger-point therapy
  Cranial osteopathy
