WHAT IS AN OSTEOPATH?

As an Osteopath, I help people suffering from body ailments often related to injuries from over working in the office, injuries from sporting activities, stress related tension, pregnancy related tensions, manual labour injuries, recreational injuries etc. I help by correcting imbalances in the tissues and using a variety of techniques that helps the person’s healing abilities overcome their problems.

After 30 years of practice, I have a very good sense of finding which tissues in the body that are strained or stressed. I particularly like working with the person’s healing mechanism to rebalance their body and encourage its full potential back to normal health.
