What is Osteopathy?

Osteopaths focus on your musculoskeletal system, meaning the bones, muscles, nerves and other tissues that support your body and control your movements. They look at the body in a holistic way and examine how effectively the parts of your body are working together.

As osteopathic techniques include a gentle approach, they can be suitable for many people, from newborns to older people, as well as for those with complex medical conditions.

The Body Refinery’s Osteopaths use a range of techniques and tools to help get you moving efficiently and effectively, including:

  • hands-on techniques:
    • Spinal manipulation
    • Soft tissue massage techniques
    • Articulation – gentle rhythmic joint movements
    • Stretching muscles and joint capsules
    • Muscle energy techniques – encouraging muscles to work against resistance
    • Visceral manipulation – gentle movement of the abdominal and pelvic areas.
  • clinical exercise programs
  • therapeutic movement
  • relaxation techniques
  • postural and positioning advice
  • other lifestyle advice
