Osteopathy

Treatment takes place in the convenience of your own home.  I bring my treatment couch and equipment.  You provide the location and your own pillow and blanket/modesty covering.

You will have a full case history taken , followed by examination.  This will enable me to understand your condition and form a diagnosis of what has happened.  Together we will plan how to proceed with treatment and prevention of future problems.

Osteopathy is a hands on treatment involving massage, stretching, movement and manipulation.  You will also be given lots of advice to help you understand your condition and what you can do to help yourself.  Exercise is a very important part of improving any problem so you will need to commit to regular exercise to get the most out of your treatment.

My preferred method of payment is by card.  I have a portable card machine.

Long-term Pain

Osteopathic treatment will help you to reach your goals in overcoming pain and symptoms to return to a more comfortable and active lifestyle.

Our approach to long-term pain is to take time to listen to your story and understand all the different factors involved in your pain experience.  We will take time to examine you – looking at movements, pain reactions and understanding how your pain is affecting your body.

A key aspect of treating long-term pain is helping you to understand your pain – the triggers, the compensations, the underlying condition.  We often take time to explain scan results, so bring them along if you have them.

Treatment will involve hands-on massage and stretching, exercise and movement.  The aim is to reduce sensitivity in your body, change habits and restore good movement patterns enabling you to feel better, move better and achieve more.
