What happens in a treatment?

Please note: If you make a booking with us directly or online, but either fail to attend or to give us 24 hours notice of cancellation, the full fee of £50 will be charged.

All our sessions are 30 minutes long. An Osteopathic treatment can be divided into four parts:

Case history:

Your first treatment will always begin with a detailed case history. This is necessary to find out more about the cause of your problem and, more importantly, whether we can help you or whether your problem requires refferal to a G.P. (Later treatments only require a brief discussion of your symptom progression.) 


Your osteopath will then require you to undress down to your underwear so they can see how well your spine, skeleton and muscles appear to be working together. In this way, your osteopath can make a treatment plan tailored to your individual problem. (Some female patients may prefer to wear shorts during treatment.) 


Osteopathy is a manual therapy and therefore we use our hands to release tension and restore function to the body. We use a variety of techniques, including soft tissue massage, stretching, gentle mobilisation of the joints and manipulation where necessary. You will always get some treatment the first time you come.

Lifestyle Advice:

We will advise you on your lifestyle, giving exercises and postural advice. This will help you to manage your problem, so reducing painful symptoms and helping you to improve your health and quality of life.
