Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment suitable for a range of conditions and injuries. After a thorough consultation and postural assessment, you'll be taken through some active and passive movements to better understand why you are in pain or dysfunction and how to help restore your body to a state of balance. Joint articulation and manipulation, soft tissue massage and stretching are just some of the hands on techniques that may be included in your session. Osteopaths in the UK are recognised as allied health professionals and regulated by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). Please allow 60 minutes for the initial consultation and 45 minutes for follow up sessions.
Sports & Remedial Massage combines a variety of soft tissue techniques such as deep tissue massage, myofascial release and stretching to target specific problem areas. A typical session will involve a brief consultation and assessment, followed by hands on treatment and advise on posture and exercise. Particularly beneficial pre or post event, during the rehabilitation process following an injury, or simply as maintenance for the body. Suitable for any duration of treatment from 30 to 75 minutes.
Deep tissue massage uses slow, deep pressure to work into areas of chronic pain and tension. It can help to reduce pain and restore function, while promoting a deep sense of relaxation. Ideally allow 30, 45 or 60 minutes to target one area of the body, and at least 75 minutes for a full body treatment.
Holistic massage combines a variety of gentle soft tissue techniques such as effleurage and petrissage, myofascial release, stretching and reflexology to help calm the nervous system and restore an overall sense of wellbeing. To treat holistically means to treat the whole person, both mind and body. Each session will be tailored to your individual needs. Ideally allow 60 to 75 minutes for a full body treatment.
Reflexology is based on the principle that the whole body is mapped out on the feet, and that by working on areas of the feet known as reflex points, you can affect change both in local tissues and physiological systems throughout the body. Reflexology can be a profoundly relaxing and restorative treatment and may be particularly beneficial for those with disorders relating to stress and anxiety. Ideally allow 45 or 60 minutes to work solely on the feet, or 90 minutes when combined with massage.
Your first session will involve a brief but in depth consultation. This will involve some questions about your medical history, allergies, injuries or areas of concern. During the consultation there will also be time for you to ask questions and tell me what it is you are hoping to achieve. It's a good idea to arrive a few minutes early on your first visit to allow for this. Before the treatment you will be given a few minutes to undress to your underwear and make yourself comfortable under a sheet or towel. Osteopathy sessions include a postural assessment - please wear something that you are comfortable to be observed in, or bring shorts and a sports top if you prefer.
Please be aware that missed appointments will still be charged unless a minimum of 24 hours notice is given.
