I had recently had bronchitis and was still feeling very breathless and my chest felt very constricted. My friend had said osteopathy could really help with some chest complaints by improving the movement of the ribcage, the spine and the chest and back muscles. She suggested I see Elise at Brook Natural Health Centre on Canvey Island. I was very sceptical about having osteopathy for this sort of thing, but was so uncomfortable I thought I would try it.

I was amazed. It worked! And so well! I felt so much better instantly and could get a proper full deep breath straight away, and much more easily. I have since learnt that osteopathy is actually well known for helping to improve movement in the body generally, like in my case; through the upper spine and ribcage to improve breathing. It’s not just for lower back pain!
