What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a healing art which involves the diagnosis and treatment of  structural and mechanical disfunctions of the body.

Osteopathy recognises that the body is a self-healing, self-regulating and self-correcting organism. Osteopaths believe that physical imbalances and strains can impair the ability of the body to maintain itself in a state of health.

Osteopaths do not simply concentrate on treating the problem area, but use manual techniques to balance interelated systems of the body to improve health and wellbeing.


Osteopaths consider that health is not simply the absence of disease or pain. It is a state of balance and harmony between the body, mind and spirit of a person. In health a body should be able to deal with health challenges and restore itself to optimum health afterwards.

Osteopaths treat all the family

Osteopaths are true family practitioners, and can help people with mechanical problems associated with every age from newborn babies to the elderly.
