Osteopathy is suitable for all ages and across a wide range of problems; Our varied techniques allow us to treat the elderly to the new born and from pregnant women to sports enthusiasts. Using many conventional medical procedures and clinical tests to assess and diagnose, we will be able to recognise at consultation whether your problem is suitable for osteopathic treatment.

Osteopaths may use manipulation (the ‘click’), stretching, rhythmic movements and massage to improve function of joints, muscles and ligaments which can ultimately influence the whole health of a person. The aim is to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, helping your body’s own healing mechanisms.

Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to regulate pain mechanisms for effective pain relief. This is achieved by inserting needles, occasionally with an electrical stimulation at precise acupuncture points. The modern scientific explanation is that needling the acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release our own natural chemicals in the skin, muscles, spinal cord and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of pain or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the body’s own internal regulating system.

Medical acupuncture is particularly effective in treating headaches and painful trigger points in muscles and enables access to deeper tissues that may be inaccessible to massage. Acupuncture is also recommended by National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) for low back pain.

Acupuncture can be offered as part of an osteopathy session or as a stand-alone treatment.

Sports massage, deep tissue massage or remedial massage as the name suggests – a remedy for tight and shortened muscles that is deeper than more of the superficial massages available. Using a thorough knowledge of anatomy and physiology, the massage therapist is able to focus on specific musculoskeletal conditions which may cause pain and discomfort. The aim of deep tissue massage is to initiate a change in the muscle fibres, fascia and connective tissue so that function is restored and symptoms alleviated.

The massage therapist employs a dedicated set of techniques and strokes to achieve relief and helps to improve joint function by releasing the restriction of tight muscles and fascia and also helps to improve blood and lymphatic flow to tissues.

Deep tissue massage can be carried out as an adjunct to osteopathy or as a stand-alone treatment.

Swedish massage is usually gentler than deep tissue massage and better suited for people interested in relaxation and tension relief and is not clinically orientated.

Swedish massage is one of the most popularly offered massage techniques. It’s sometimes called a classic massage. The technique aims to promote relaxation by releasing muscle tension, release toxins and reduce the stress hormone cortisol.

A traditional Swedish massage involves the whole body. You will begin on either your back or your stomach and flip over at the halfway point.
