What we do

An Osteopath uses their clinical knowledge together with their highly skilled sense of touch, known as palpation, to diagnose and treat people.

Osteopaths are primary health care practitioners with a statutory regulatory body, The General Osteopathic Council .

All Osteopaths practising in the UK have undergone rigorous clinical training for 4 to 5 years. They study anatomy, physiology and pathology and clinical subjects to a very high standard. Many go on to pursue post-graduate courses in their particular field of interest or to deepen their knowledge of osteopathy, which is said to take a life time to understand its full therapeutic potential.

The complexity of the human body and its ability to self-heal is amazing, so an osteopath commits to a life-long journey of studying.
