What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a form of manual therapy that can have beneficial effects for a variety of muscle and joint conditions. Using a wide range of gentle hand on techniques that focus on releasing tension, stretching the muscles and mobilising the joints.

Osteopaths look at the body as a whole unit and through an understanding of anatomy, movement and palpation they aim to address the cause rather than just ease the symptoms. As a person-centred approach, Osteopathy aims to work with the body’s own healing mechanisms to provide optimum conditions for health.
