“Osteopathy is a natural therapy and treatment philosophy. Osteopathic manual practice uses hands-on techniques to restore mobility and proper biomechanical and physiological function to joints, muscles and fascia, and to the vascular, digestive, circulatory, and nervous systems.

 

Osteopathic treatment seeks to achieve optimal function of the body’s systems using a gentle hands-on approach to detect and improve restricted movement.  It is suitable for all ages, from birth onwards.”
