What is Osteopathy

Osteopathy works with the structure and function of the body. Instead of using drugs, Osteopaths use their hands to diagnose problems and to treat individuals using techniques from manipulation and movement of joints to soft tissue massage. It is a very safe treatment and well established being professionally regulated, just like doctors, with the passing of the The Osteopath Act (1993). All Osteopaths must be registered.

As our lives get busier and we demand more from our bodies, many people suffer occasional aches and pains. However, if you start to experience these on a regular basis, it is your body’s way of telling you that something is not right. This is where Osteopathy can help. It assists in alleviating symptoms by addressing the underlying causes and helps prevent them from developing into something more serious.

Osteopaths mainly work with their hands to aid the body’s self-healing mechanisms, which in turn help decrease inflammation and pain as well as improve the range of movement and flexibility of an area. A gentle technique called Cranial Osteopathy may also be used.
