What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a unique system of holistic, manual medicine, based on principles which recognises the importance between the link with the structure of the body, the nervous system and the way it functions as a whole.

Osteopaths look at every part of the body to restore total well-being, by using skilled evaluation, diagnosis and a wide range of gentle, safe and effective hands-on techniques.

How do Osteopaths treat?

During your treatment, our Osteopaths/practitioners feel and listen to a patient's body, with the aim of cooperating with the natural self-healing capacity already at work within - significant therapeutic change is then possible with the least possible intervention. 

Osteopaths use an acute sense of palpation to diagnose and treat in way which is safe and effective, to restore optimal structure and function to the body. Using a variety of techniques, we will address dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system, postural imbalances, fluid dynamics and function of the nervous system:

Direct techniques include:

  • General Osteopathic Technique (GOT) 
  • Muscle Energy Technique (MOT)
  • Counterstrain
  • HVLA Manipulation

And indirect techniques such as:

  • Functional
  • Visceral
  • Craniosacral
  • Osteopathy in the cranial field (OCF)

About Biodynamics & Craniosacral Therapy

Biodynamic Osteopathy is a very unique and clinically effective approach to Osteopathic principles. Biodynamical (or cranial sacral) treatment is a gentle and subtle whole body approach which influences the central nervous system and calms the fluid flow throughout the body, which is essential considering we are made up of around 80% water. Sometimes this form of therapy can affect the patient on a deep emotional and spiritual level also, with treatment lasting several days as the body continues to heal itself.

Through extensive training and years of clinical application, our practitioners skillfully learn how to sense and communicate with the intrinsic health in the patient, and co-operate with its intention towards normal.

This gentle, indirect method allows a treatment to delve deeper beyond the human structure to a place of stillness.

The Biodynamic view of osteopathy in the cranial field recognises the natural forces that created the embryo are also the forces of growth and development and the sustaining restorative forces throughout life. Working with these forces, the practitioner is able to communicate with the natural healing of the body as a whole to restore its vitality. This is achieved when the Osteopath engages with the patient's stillness and allows their natural healing potential to be realised.

The word Biodynamic can be defined as a life ever changing in motion, or the 'what is outside' influencing 'what is inside', and the balance between.
