What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a client-centred system of assessment and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. It is a form of manual therapy, and is often considered a complementary therapy to conventional medicine.

Pregnancy Care

A woman's body changes throughout pregnancy. Those changes include the softening of ligaments, weight increase and changes in posture. 

These adaptations to growing baby can lead to additional pressure on joints in various parts of the body including the spine and pelvis.

Osteopathy can help to relieve stresses and strains experienced throughout pregnancy as well as after the birth. 

Children & Babies

Osteopathy is suitable for children at all stages of development. 

Cranial techniques are safe, gentle and non-manipulative. They are often used when treating young children and newborn infants. Osteopathy can help to soothe and relax your baby.
