What Is Osteopathy
Osteopathy uses ‘hands-on’ techniques to influence the way the body works by manipulating the muscles, tendons, joints, connective tissue and ligaments.
The Osteopath will use a process of detailed case history taking, careful observation and examination and highly developed skills of palpation (feeling) to find areas of stress, strain or weakness in the body. After making a diagnosis they will treat specific areas relating to the problem. The techniques employed are safe and gentle.
Osteopathic Practice is statutorily regulated by The General Osteopathic Council
(GOsC) (Osteopath’s Act 1993).
