Osteopathy is a physical therapy used to restore and maintain the finely tuned systems of the body with particular emphasis on the skeletal, muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Balance is commonly upset by physical strain or injury, psychological stress or general lifestyle. These imbalances can result in many symptoms such as neck and back pain, digestive upsets, menstrual disorders and respiratory problems.

The osteopath’s role is to use gentle techniques, such as soft tissue and neuromuscular mobilisations, muscle energy and manipulation, and cranial techniques thereby allowing normal functioning to be restored.
