When you arrive for your first osteopathic consultation, we will take time and take a complete case history, including previous injuries or accidents and previous medical treatments. It is important for us to understand all the influences your body has been under, to be able to treat you holistically.

We will then examine you and discuss with you how we may be able to help or if we would recommend any other investigation or therapy for you to regain optimum health. We will then offer you osteopathic treatment.


At Family Osteopathy we specialise in use of very gentle techniques. Our practitioners have all trained for many years to develop a precise sense of touch (called palpation) and can feel with minimal pressure any imbalances in the tissues of the body (both at skin level as well as much deeper at the level of an organ.)
