Osteopathy is a practise of diagnosis and treatment that views people from a holistic perspective, understanding that problems in one area of the body, or aspect of life, can have repercussions in another. By assessing the body through the medium of touch and movement we build a picture of function and dysfunction working towards an understanding of the root cause of symptoms. Treatment addresses these issues with hands on physical body work, advice and exercise. The aim of this is the reduction of discomfort and restoration of function. By restoring function, Osteopaths believe that the body’s own healing response will be more effective.
In 1993 the Osteopaths Act passed into law. Osteopathy became the first complementary medical practise to receive statutory regulation. All Osteopaths must be registered and be trained to a specified standard on an approved course. Osteopath became a protected title making it illegal to call yourself an Osteopath without being trained and registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC).
Osteopathy is primarily involved with the Musculo-Skeletal system. However we may be able to help in other aspects of health too. I would be delighted to answer any questions you have. Please phone me on 0747 246 5828
