Restore optimum health and balance

Osteopathy is a holistic healthcare approach that focuses on the interconnectedness of the body's structure and function. As Osteopathic practitioners we believe that the body has an innate ability to heal itself when in proper alignment. We use a hands-on, manual approach to assess, treat, and help prevent a wide range of health issues.

As Osteopathic practitioners we consider the musculoskeletal system, including the bones, muscles, and joints, as well as the nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems, to be integral components of a person's overall health.

We utilise a diverse range of techniques, including mobilisation of specific joints and soft tissues, gentle manipulation of the musculoskeletal, visceral, and cranial systems, along with stretching, massage, and soft tissue methods. Our objective is to enhance joint mobility, alleviate muscular tension, reduce pain, restore balance, and improve overall flexibility to ensure the optimal functioning of your body as a whole.

The principles of osteopathy emphasise the importance of treating not just symptoms but also the underlying causes of health issues, making it a comprehensive and patient-centered approach to wellness.

Cranio Sacral Therapy

Craniosacral therapy (CST), originally known as cranial osteopathy, has two avenues of education; through an osteopathy program, or through training on its own. It is a form of manual therapy that focuses on the assessment and treatment of the craniosacral system. This system includes the brain, spinal cord, and the cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds and protects these structures.


Our practitioners use light touch and gentle manual techniques to evaluate and influence the craniosacral system's rhythm and mobility. The goal is to detect and facilitate the release of any restrictions, tension, or imbalances within this system, thereby improving the body's self-healing and self-regulatory mechanisms. 


All of our osteopathic practitioners are trained in cranial osteopathy, which is an essential component of our comprehensive osteopathic care. Additionally, you may book a cranial sacral session with our craniosacral therapist Catherine, You can find her profile listed among our practitioners for more information and to make an appointment.
