Osteopathy has been practised since the late 1800's and was brought into the public arena in the U.S.A. originally by a Doctor of Medicine who was disillusioned by the then, traditional medical practice following the loss of his whole family to illness.

One of the foremost principles of osteopathy is “structure governs function' - if the structure of the body is aligned correctly and moving as it is designed to, this prevents stasis and promotes good health. The patient's posture is assessed — mechanically and functionally, then using anatomical, physiological and medical knowledge, the osteopath treats problems in the structure of the body by using manual techniques such as soft tissue work, articulation, gentle manipulation and cranial techniques.

Osteopathic treatment can encompass all body tissues, muscles, ligaments and tendons, fascia, nerve tissue, bones and viscera.

It is a very safe and effective way of treating many different problems including the following conditions:

In babies and children:

More general conditions:
