Osteopaths focus on the body's skeleton, nervous system and joint function; when these areas are not working correctly pain can be the result. Gentle stretching and mobilising techniques are used, as well as manipulating joints, to create the perfect conditions to facilitate a healing process.

Cranial Osteopathy aims to unravel the different patterns and distortions that the body has developed in response to different stresses placed upon it. Treatment consists of the Osteopath placing his/her hands on the patient, usually on the head or along the spine, although work can be done from any point of the body. The touch is very light and gentle.
