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.

Emotional freedom technique (EFT) is an alternative treatment for physical pain and emotional distress. It’s also referred to as tapping or psychological acupressure. EFT draws on various theories of alternative medicine including acupuncture, neuro-linguistic programming, energy medicine, and Thought Field Therapy.

People who use this technique believe tapping the body can create a balance in your energy system and treat pain. According to its developer, Gary Craig, a disruption in energy is the cause of all negative emotions and pain.

Though still being researched, EFT tapping has been used to treat people with anxiety and people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
