This holistic therapy is based on the principle that your health is affected by how well your bones, muscles, joints and connecting tissue work together.

When one part of your body isn’t functioning properly, from over-use, misuse or injury, this will have a knock-on effect to other parts of your body. For example, a problem in your back might cause localised pain, but it may also lead to other seemingly unrelated problems, like headaches or digestive discomfort.

Osteopathy is a way to improve the smooth running of your body. It’s also a good way of preventing future injury because it can help to improve your flexibility, relieve tension and stimulate a good flow of blood around your body.

A typical osteopathy session

During treatment, your osteopath will massage, stretch and gently manipulate your muscles or joints. This is usually relaxing and pleasant, but can cause mild discomfort as the osteopath works on or around your particular problem areas.

The purpose of treatment is to reduce pain in those areas, so using gentle touch and pressure, your osteopath will encourage the release of tension, spasm or stress. This then helps your body to heal itself.

During the session, our osteopaths will look at your posture and balance, and may also make recommendations on certain types of exercise, diet or changes to your routine (such as how you sit at work) to prevent problems from reoccurring.

Osteopathy during pregnancy

During pregnancy, your joints and muscles are put under extra strain. Changes in your hormones also cause your ligaments to soften and stretch in preparation for labour. As a result, back or neck ache, pelvic and groin problems and general discomfort are all common during pregnancy. Osteopathy is a completely safe way to help relieve some of these issues and make pregnancy more comfortable and enjoyable.
