What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a primary healthcare profession. It is a complementary system of examination, diagnosis and treatment.
Osteopaths are trained to look at the body as a whole, as part of one integral unit. We aim to treat the primary underlying cause of the problem and not just the symptoms that may occur as a result.
Some key principles we work by are:
The body is a self healing mechanism
Structure and function are interrelated
Movement of fluid is key to maintain health
Osteopathy is a gentle treatment suitable for children, babies, adults and seniors.
