What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a form of manual therapy which focuses on the relationship between structure and function within the body and that all aspects of the body must work together to maintain health. Osteopaths view the body as a self-regulating, interrelated system and believe that through manual osteopathic therapy the body can return to normal and health state.

What to expect from an Osteopathic Therapy treatment?
Our osteopathic practitioners assess the whole body as a unit and not just the area that is causing symptoms. Once the osteopath has completed their assessment, they will use a combination of techniques such as manual therapy, joint articulation and myofascial release to treat the affected area as appropriate.
