Osteopathy is a gentle, safe and highly effective hands on treatment that works with the inherent health in your body.
As Osteopaths we are under increasing restrictions regarding what we can say about what we treat. In a working day I see people affected by physical and emotional trauma, injury, illness, behavioural and sleep issues as well as people of all ages undergoing the transitions of life such as birth, puberty, pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and the end of life.
Osteopathy provides a non-invasive approach to health for the whole family and is therefore safe for the newest of babies and the most elderly of people. This natural approach to health can enable chronic conditions to shift as well as the painful effects of more recent injuries to heal.
Osteopaths have a highly developed sense of touch or palpation. We have an extensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology and can detect very subtle physical imbalances in the body. The gentle and often subtle techniques (often referred to as Cranial Osteopathy) that we use help to ease out areas of tension and restricted mobility, help improve local circulation and help the body return to a better state of balance and health.
The Biodynamic approach to Cranial Osteopathy draws on the fact that the biodynamic forces that enable an embryo to develop are the same forces that enable a wound to heal or a person to overcome any trauma in their lives. As Osteopaths we help the body to re-balance in order that healing can occur and the person can fulfil their unique potential in the world.
