Osteopathy for all ages

Osteopathy is a suitable therapy for all ages. There are many types of treatment and Osteopathic techniques so your treatment can be tailored to your aims, needs and intensity of treatment. Techniques and treatment can be modified as appropriate for you. From very gentle techniques if you are in pain or just feeling delicate to more intensive and stronger techniques for deep muscle and joint symtoms.

What is Osteopathy

Osteopathy is an extremely effective but gentle form of therapy that relieves pain by improving the function of the body as a whole. Osteopathic medicine has a history of over 125 years. It is a complete system of medical care founded on the philosophy of treating the whole person. Osteopaths are highly trained and specialised physicians that are able to diagnose and treat many conditions and also recognise when referral is appropriate. Osteopathy is complementary to mainstream medicine and can therefore be used alongside medical treatment or independently therefore no referral from your General Practitioner is required. Osteopathy is suitable for all the family and can improve conditions like back and neck aches or pain, migraines and headaches, asthma, sports injuries, disc problems, sciatica, trapped nerves, and repetitive-strain injuries. It can also provide great benefit for other less ‘tangible’ conditions such as anxiety, insomnia and stress.

Understanding the lymphatic system

The lymphatic system consists of organs, ducts, and nodes. It transports a watery clear fluid called lymph.

This fluid distributes immune cells and other factors throughout the body. It also interacts with the blood circulatory system to drain fluid from cells and tissues.

The lymphatic system contains immune cells called lymphocytes, which protect the body against antigens (viruses, bacteria, etc.) that invade the body.


Areas of the body affected by injury or infection require the efficient circulation of your lymphatic immune cells. Swelling is a natural inflammatory response but unless it is treated appropriately can lead to infection, prolonged recovery periods and inadequate healing that leads to scar tissue in muscles, ligaments, connective tissues and joints which in turn reduces the circulation of blood, nerve and lymphatic supply to the area. This inappropriate healing response leaves the body vulnerable to further injury or illness.

The lymphatic system responds to mechanical stimulation. Therefore, the use of Osteopathic techniques that mobilise the joints, soft tissue stretching and massage directly reduce swelling and improves circulation of your immune cells. This process aids recovery, improves your immune response , reduces pain and also improves your sense of well being. Osteopathic treatment encourages effective healing that improves the body's ability to gain a full recovery from tissue damage.
