Osteopathy Explained

Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment designed to provide pain relief for the body’s structural and mechanical problems. A gentle form of treatment, osteopathy can benefit most types of aches, pains and strains in people of every age. It is a natural therapy which combines manual ‘hands-on’ techniques with exercise and advice.
