About Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a well-established and statutory regulated profession with a long history of helping all sorts of complaints, although in recent years it has become particularly sought after  in cases of back pain. Osteopathy is actually a whole body approach to hands on treatment that can be used on any joint, muscle or connective tissue. I use gentle and effective techniques to help alleviate your discomfort and bring your body into balance again. This may include stretching, massage, movements, cranial osteopathy and gentle joint adjustment. Treatment is always tailored to your personal needs and preferences.

To read more about what conditions an osteopath can help alleviate please see the 'What Osteopaths Treat' page above.

About Myofascial Release

This is a relatively new mode of treatment, as research on the incredible importance of fascia in our bodies has only entered the mainstream in recent years. Fascia is a tissue that permeates and surrounds every part of your body right down to the level of your cells. It is a living matrix that affects not only your muscle and nerve function but also communication between body systems and fluid flow. Osteopaths treat fascia in a number of ways as part of their training, and I have also completed additional training in a specific technique called myofascial release and have found it to be very helpful and effective as an adjunct to my osteopathic repertoire.

It can be particularly effective for those that have chronic problems that have proved difficult to shift, or those that involve scar tissue. But it can also be useful in many other areas including sports injuries and more acute problems.
