What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a regulated profession, with all osteopaths required by law to register with the General Osteopathic Council, who ensure that all osteopaths operate to high professional standards. It is a criminal offence to claim to be an osteopath otherwise.

Osteopathy offers a safe form of manual therapy to treat a wide variety of health complaints. It works with the structure and function of the body, with the belief that the well-being of an individual depends on the health of the skeleton, muscles, ligaments, vascular and nervous systems functioning properly.

Osteopaths use techniques such as articulation, 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. We also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.
