Osteopathy...

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It works with the structure and function of the body, and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together. To an Osteopath, for your body to work well, its structure must also work well. So Osteopaths work to restore your body to a state of balance, where possible without the use of drugs or surgery. ​​

Osteopaths use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, relieve muscle tension, enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body’s own healing mechanisms. Each Osteopathic session typically provides a diagnosis, treatment, lifestyle and postural advice and specific exercises to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.

Osteopathic Training...

All Osteopaths practicing in the UK have completed rigorous training and must be registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). Students of Osteopathy follow a four or five-year degree course, during which they study anatomy, physiology, pathology, pharmacology, nutrition and biomechanics. In addition, they undergo a minimum of 1,000 hours of clinical training. Qualification generally takes the form of a bachelor’s degree in Osteopathy – a BSc(Hons), BOst or BOstMed – or a more advanced masters degree in Osteopathy (MOst).
