What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy recognises the importance of the link between the structure of the human body and the way it functions. Osteopaths focus on the body's skeleton and joint function along with the underlying muscles, soft tissue and internal organs.
Osteopaths consider each person as an individual. Utilising a highly developed sense of touch, they identify problem areas of the body. Using gentle stretching and mobilising techniques as well as manipulating joints, an osteopath works with the body to create the perfect conditions to facilitate the healing process. Treatment usually consists of a combination of soft-tissue releasing techniques, and some specific adjustments affecting joints and soft-tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments).Advice can also be given on self-help treatments.

Cranial osteopathy is the name given to a particular type of osteopathy that uses very gentle manipulative techniques, and includes treatment of the head as well as the rest of the body. It is effective for treatment of all types of conditions, and for all ages. It is particularly suitable for the treatment of children.
