Osteopathy...

Osteopathy is a safe, natural and gentle approach to treating the body¹s musculo-skeletal system i.e. joints, bones, muscles, ligaments. It can be helpful for a wide variety of problems e.g. back, neck and joint pain; sports injuries; muscle spasm and tension; trapped nerves; postural problems related to pregnancy; and cranial osteopathy can be particularly helpful for treating babies and young children.

On your first visit Liz or Amanda will complete a detailed case history about your particular problem, general health and any previous problems They will then examine you (you may be asked to remove some outer garments) and explain the nature of your particular problem. You will then discuss a treatment plan and they may recommend self-help and preventative measures such as exercises or postural advice as well as carrying out an initial treatment.

Osteopathy uses gentle techniques such as massage, articulation and manipulation to encourage our body to repair and can be suitable for treating a broad range of patients..from aged 2 weeks to 102!
