WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?

Osteopathy is a distinct approach to healthcare based on a well-established system of clinical diagnosis. Osteopaths focus on the structure of the body, using safe, natural manual treatment, which offers a caring approach to the individual needs of each patient at all stages of life from birth to their twilight years

Osteopaths believe that the healthy balance and function of the musculoskeletal framework of the body is essential to whole body health. It is based on the principle that the structure and function of the body are inherently related. If the structure is not balanced and healthy, then the function can be affected.

Osteopaths utilise a range of techniques including physical manipulation, stretching, massage and gentle cranial sacral techniques. Cranial techniques are safe, gentle and non-manipulative and are often used when treating young children and newborn infants.
