How Osteopathy can help


Osteopathy is a gentle and effective hands-on approach to healthcare, based on the principle that the way your body moves influences how it functions, so tension in one system can affect how another functions. Equally relieving tensions and strains in one system can have far reaching beneficial effects across all body systems.

Osteopaths have a comprehensive understanding of how the body operates and work on a deep level with the various inter connected systems: anatomical, physiological and neurological.

“Osteopathy is a philosophy,
a science and an art”

Carter Harrison Downing

 Osteopaths primarily work through the neuro-musculo-skeletal system, mostly on muscles and joints, using a wide range of gentle, non-invasive manual techniques such as deep-tissue massage, joint articulation and manipulation.

The treatment is a gentle and subtle but profound way to help return your body to its naturally healthy state.

What is Cranial Osteopathy?


Cranial Osteopathy is the name given to a subtle and refined approach to osteopathy. The name simply refers to the fact that it includes the structures inside the head, but the technique is used throughout the body – not just in the head.

Cranial osteopaths use a highly developed sense of touch to feel subtle changes of tension and tissue quality in the living anatomy of the whole body. They  spend many hours during their four year training developing their palpatory skills, learning to listen with their fingertips and to diagnose areas of strain or dysfunction. 

“As the twig is bent, so grows the tree”

William Sutherland – Founder of Cranial Osteopathy

Cranial treatment can seem to the patient to be a quiet listening process. The Osteopath is listening to the tissues and sensing subtle differences in quality such as thickening, stiffening congestion and stillness. These qualities create different fulcrums to the body’s natural healthy tissue motion.

Acknowledging and supporting this as we listen can allow the connective tissues to unwind into healthier balance. Like the unwinding of a telephone cord, or tangled headphone cable.

Who can we help?


Osteopaths are commonly known for treating back pain and postural problems including changes due to pregnancy, caused by driving or work strain, the pain of arthritis and minor sports injuries.

Patients have also found osteopathy helpful for conditions such as digestive issues, circulatory problems, neuralgia and problems sleeping and for the symptoms of many others.

Osteopathic patients include the young, older people, manual workers, office professionals, pregnant women, children and sports people.

We are trained to check for signs of serious conditions we cannot treat and will refer you to see your GP or hospital for further investigations in this instance.

Young or not so young?
Super-fit or not so fit?

Conditions that we often see and are able to help with include:

Back neck and  general spinal stiffness and pain
Muscle sprain and spasms
Sciatica and some other nerve pain or entrapment syndromes
Cervicogenic headaches, migraine and TMJ pain
Sports injuries

Circulatory problems
Functional digestive problems
