What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a way of detecting, treating and preventing health problems by moving, stretching and massaging a person’s muscles and joints. Osteopathy is based on the principle that the well being of an individual depends on their bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue functioning smoothly together. As Osteopaths we use physical manipulation, stretching and massage, with the aim of:
- increasing the mobility of joints
- relieving muscle tension
- enhancing the blood supply to tissues
- helping the body to heal
Osteopaths use a range of techniques, but don’t use drugs or surgery.
