What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a method of detecting and treating injured parts of the body, such as muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints. Osteopaths use their hands to detect and correct problems, using the specific application of highly developed touch. Osteopathy stimulates and decongests the soft tissues, improves joint function and helps create an environment where the body has a real chance to heal. When the body is working efficiently it functions with the minimum of wear and tear and leaves more energy for living and self repair. All ‘Registered Osteopaths’ are regulated by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) – the governing body of UK osteopaths, which has strict codes of ethics and professional conduct.
