Osteopathy is an established system of clinical diagnosis and manual treatment, which examines the whole of the person, not just the symptoms, in searching for the cause of the problem.
In particular, Osteopathy is concerned with the function and movement of the many inter-related structures and tissues in the body. Osteopaths can detect and treat injured tissues such as muscles, ligaments, nerves, joints, and deeper connective tissue. By restoring the natural movement patterns in these tissues, a number of conditions throughout the body can be addressed.
Osteopathy is well known for treatment of back, neck and shoulder problems, but it works very well on any area in the body, including extremities, and the abdomen. All ages can benefit from treatment from the newborn, to adults and the elderly.

Your first consultation
Your first visit takes longer than subsequent visits. A complete case history is taken, which includes finding out every detail of the complaint you wish to have resolved. It also includes a full medical history and questions about your current and past lifestyle. Once you have had an opportunity to tell your story, and we are satisfied we have a thorough understanding, a physical and osteopathic examination follows.
Charlotte has a 5 year undergraduate and postgraduate degree in Osteopathy from Victoria University, Melbourne, and Ruth from the British School of Osteopathy. We have a special interest in Cranial Osteopathy having completed extensive postgraduate cranial work in NZ and overseas.
We could not be better equipped to achieve the results you desire.
