State Registered Osteopaths

& Naturopaths

What is osteopathy?  Osteopathy is a recognised hands-on therapy designed to diagnose and treat pain and disability.  It uses many of the diagnostic procedures used in conventional medicine but does not involve prescribing drugs.


What is naturopathy?  Naturopathic medicine looks at the person as a whole and is based on the concept of helping the body to help itself to restore health and natural function.  It uses diet, exercise, postural advice, hydrotherapy (water treatment) and relaxation techniques to do this and is here combined with osteopathy.


Who can be treated?  Both osteopathy and naturopathy can help all age ranges including babies and young children as well as expectant mothers, the elderly and those recovering from illness or injuries.


What can they treat?  Osteopaths treat people really, not conditions. Patients often arrive with labels and conditions already diagnosed elsewhere. As Osteopaths, we take our own case histories and conduct a thorough examination, and may refer the patient back to his or her GP if we feel further tests are needed. Following a review by CAP (Committee of Advertising Practice) of the Bronfort et al Review in 2010, CAP accepts that osteopaths may claim to help a variety of medical conditions, including: generalised aches and pains, joint pains including hip and knee pain from osteoarthritis as an adjunct to core OA treatments and exercise, arthritic pain, general, acute & chronic backache, back pain (not arising from injury or accident), uncomplicated mechanical neck pain (as opposed to neck pain following injury i.e. whiplash), headache arising from the neck (cervicogenic) / migraine prevention, frozen shoulder/ shoulder and elbow pain/ tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) arising from associated musculoskeletal conditions of the back and neck but not isolated occurrences, circulatory problems, cramp, digestion problems, joint pains, lumbago, sciatica, muscle spasms, neuralgia, fibromyalgia, inability to relax, rheumatic pain, minor sports injuries and tensions". In addition, as Naturopaths and Osteopaths, we may give dietary and lifestyle advice as well as giving structural and postural treatment which may help people deal better with other disorders which may benefit from an osteopathic and/or  Naturopathic approach. It is important to stress that while Osteopathy or Naturopathy are excellent disciplines, they have their limitations; they are not a cure all, or universal panacea, but they can certainly help a person help themselves, or assist the body in its ‘self healing’

What will the treatment involve?  A full case history will be taken to get a complete picture of your health and lifestyle.  You will be asked to remove some of your clothing to enable a full examination of the relevant area.  

You will then be asked to perform a series of simple movements which, along with gentle palpation will help make the diagnosis and cause of the pain.

Occasionally there is the need for outside information from your GP such as blood tests or x-ray results to allow a full diagnosis to be made.  However, these are not requested without your prior written consent.

Treatment will vary to suit the individual but will normally involve deep massage techniques and painless mobilization of the joints to increase their range of movement as well as dietary, exercise and postural advice to improve the effectiveness of the treatment and prevent reoccurrence.


If you require a total Cranial treatment or would prefer a non cranial approach, please feel free to ask. Don’t be afraid to ask to be seen by either of us - our different approaches will suit some more than others!
