Osteopathy is known as a holistic therapy
a system of health care that recognises
the relationship between the structure
and function of the body.
As an osteopath I've noticed that many people only think about visiting an Osteopath when they have a bad back. I see the body as a whole system and osteopathic treatment focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and rehabilitation of many musculoskeletal disorders.
It aims to restore optimal body function to maintain health, by treating the underlying cause of the symptom. This is also effective for the prevention of future problems.
Our modern lifestyle often makes our body age faster than it is designed to, despite all the comfort that is available to us. Osteopathy works to recognise imbalances in the body’s structure that may lead to altered function, pain and discomfort. Every activity you do regularly, from sitting on a train to holding your baby, or working in an office to lifting weights, jogging or dancing professionally shapes your body. Years of use, misuse and abuse lead to premature aging, discomfort and pain.
Using conventional osteopathic techniques - gentle massage, articulation, manipulations - as well as acupuncture, functional exercises and stretches, I am able to effectively treat a broad range of musculoskeletal conditions. My aim is to restore the body’s natural balance, improve your circulation, to reduce and cure pain and help to restore movement. And movement is life.
