The Principles of Osteopathy teach us to look at the WHOLE body, we understand that things don’t happen in isolation. The body is constantly adapting to what stimulus we put onto it. This means we take you, the ENTIRE you into consideration. We listen to your story and look at how we can improve your symptoms so that you don’t have to suffer anymore.
Osteopathy is a form of alternative medicine that focuses on the relationship between the Neuro – Musculo- Skeletal system. In other words, the relationship between the nerves, muscles, bones, lymphatics and other connective tissue that support your body and control its movements.

Osteopathy’s Core Beliefs
The Body is a Holistic Unit
Nothing gets injured on its own, everything is connected and interrelated, that means nothing heals on its own. This means we take the entire body into consideration, not just the symptom you may be presented with.
The Body has its own Self Regulatory and Self – Healing Mechanisms
The body has all the resources and mechanisms it needs to adapt and overcome
Our role as Osteopaths is to identify and remove any blockages in the body that are impeding the healing process, leading to toxicity or deficiency in key resources.
Structure and Function are interrelated
We can only function as well as our body allows us too
Our role as Osteopaths is to improve Biomechanics so that the internal architecture of our body can function optimally and increase output
