Osteopathy is a manual therapy, suitable for people of all ages, that emphasizes the role of the musculoskeletal system in health and disease. 

Osteopaths have a holistic approach and will aim to treat the whole body in order to achieve a good structural balance thereby ensuring the wellbeing of the patient.  A wide range of techniques, including massage, joint mobilisation, manipulation and cranial techniques can be included in the treatment which is focussed on the individual needs of each patient.

Osteopaths assess and treat people of any age from the elderly to the newborn and from pregnant women to sports people.

Cranial osteopathy is a gentle, subtle type of osteopathy that promotes the release of tension and stresses throughout the head and body.  It can be a very effective way of treating patients of all ages, from birth to old age.

Dr Andrew Taylor Still founded Osteopathy in 1874.

By going back to the first principles of anatomy and physiology of the human body, Dr Still worked on the premise that the role of doctor should be to create the correct conditions for the body to heal itself.

Osteopathy developed on the principles that cells, for normal function, require constant supply of oxygen and nutrients, regular circulation controlled by the nervous system and removal of metabolic waste products.
