The World Health Organisation has recognised osteopathy as an effective treatment. Our osteopaths are all registered with the General Osteopathic Council and are very skilled at what they do. They have been professionally trained to not just focus on one area of treatment, but rather to focus on the body as a whole.
Some of our osteopaths are trained in specific areas of osteopathy including sports injuries, cranial and visceral osteopathy. By treating each patient as an individual, our osteopaths can give each patient the treatment they specifically need, ensuring that they receive the best possible outcome.
