Osteopathy aims to restore, maintain and promote physical and psychological well being in a patient-centred environment. As a registered osteopath, I consider each person as an individual. Utilising osteopathic techniques, I work with your body to help create the best conditions to encourage the healing process.
Osteopathy is primarily a manual therapy and involves massage, mobilisation and spinal manipulation for the treatment of:
• Aches & pains – osteoarthritic, joint, lumbago, sciatica, rheumatic
• Acute & chronic back ache/pain
• Headache and migraine prevention
• Frozen shoulder & tennis elbow
• Sports injuries and tensions
• Cramp & muscle spasms
• Circulatory & Digestion problems
• Inability to relax
General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) regulates the practice of osteopathy
in the United Kingdom. By law osteopaths must be registered in order to practice. The GOsC works with the public and osteopathic profession to promote patient safety by registering qualified professionals, and setting, maintaining and developing standards of osteopathic practice and conduct.
Institute of Osteopathy (iO) was originally founded as the British Osteopathic Association and is the UK's professional membership organisation for osteopaths.
