Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a type of complementary and alternative medicine. Treatments in osteopathy primarily consist of moving, stretching and massaging a person’s muscles and joints. Osteopaths work to restore your body to a state of balance, where possible without the use of drugs or surgery. Osteopathy is a safe, gentle form of manual therapy using touch, physical manipulation, stretching and an osteopath can increase the mobility of joints, relieve muscle tension, enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and help your body’s own healing mechanisms. They may also provide advice on lifestyle, posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.
