How do osteopaths treat?

We may use massage, stretching, resistance techniques, or joint mobilisation or manipulation to release tissue tension or improve the range of movement in joints, improve the blood flow and nerve supply to the body. The majority of techniques are gentle, and if any pain is felt it should be a good pain which feels like it is helping to ease the problem.

We also use cranial, functional and fascial osteopathic techniques which are gentle ways to release tension in the whole body including the head.
