Because our osteopaths practice in the cranial field, this form of gentle treatment works well for those with genetic disorders, chronic immunity issues and persistent problems associated with the nervous, hormonal and/or musculoskeletal systems.

Our approach is non-invasive. The osteopath cradles different parts of your body (e.g. head, back and sometimes feet), applying gentle pressure. Treatments generally require you to lie on the treatment table but other positions might be more comfortable for you.
