The General Osteopathic Council, our regulating body, describe Osteopathy as “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.”
This means that your body is capable of self healing (in many cases) and that optimal healing takes place in the optimal environment. As Osteopaths we look at how you adapt to your complaint or how it arose in the first place and work with you and your body to facilitate optimal healing.
