About Osteopathy

What Osteopathy is?

 

Osteopathy is a way of detecting, treating and preventing health problems by moving, stretching and massaging a person's muscles and joints.

Osteopathy is based on the principle that the wellbeing of an individual depends on their bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue functioning smoothly together.

 

Osteopathic practitioners use physical manipulation, mobilization, stretching, and massage with the aim of:

 

  • increasing the mobility of joints;

  • relieving muscle tension;

  • enhancing the blood supply to tissues;

  • helping the body to heal.

What we can help?

Most people who see an osteopath do so for help with conditions that affect the muscles, bones and joints, such as:

"You begin with anatomy, and you end with anatomy, a knowledge of anatomy is all you want or need..."
—Philosophy of Osteopathy
