Osteo-what?!

As an Osteopath, the aim is to ensure your body is at its best form to optimise everything you do and prevent injury and where injury done occurs- find the source and accommodate healing.

The number of techniques to use are endless depending on your aims and issues;

– Mobilisation- articulating a joint to increase its movement

– Manipulation/Adjustments- ‘The Clicking Thing’ nudging a joint to move more- the noise is actually not indicative of the technique’s efficacy

– Neural flossing- allowing the nerves to move more freely in between muscle

– Soft tissue massage such as lymphatic drainage or effleurage– ensuring blood and lymph flow are optimal to ensure cell nutrition and waste disposal
