Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine that focuses on helping the body adjust itself, so that it's full ability to heal is enabled. Osteopathy's strength lies in the unique assessment tools used to exmaine patients from mechanical, functional and postural methods. Osteopaths consider each person as an individual, utilising gentle techniques that will work with your body to create the perefect conditions to encourage the healing process.
There are 3 tenets to osteopathy:
Osteopathy philosophy demonstartes the traid of health which is fundamental to one's well-being.
Chemical-Nutrional/Structural-Exercise/Mental-Emotional aspects all need to be in balance to maintain good health and prevent disease.
Naturopathy is a system of treatment and healthcare that supports the body’s innate ability to heal itself through nutrition, exercise and life-style advice. It is a holistic system which believes that good health is not the same as the absence of disease and that promoting a general state of wellbeing through dietary principles, lifestyle, exercise and other techniques is an effective way to manage our physiological systems. Naturopathy may be beneficial for a wide range of acute or chronic conditions as well as a general practice for living well. A naturopath will assess your diet and make recommendations to help improve your general health related to specific dietary issues.
Acupuncture is an ancient system of healing developed by the Chinese and has been practiced in China for thousands of years. It is a system of diagnosis and treatment enabling a free flow of Energy or Qi (Chi) throughout the body. Westernised acupuncture concentrates on trigger point acupuncture which is direct manipulation of muscular tightness (knots) – known as trigger points. It seeks to generate repeated, involuntary twitching from the knotted muscle or muscle group and usually leads to a relaxation of the tightness of the mucsle. Trigger point acupuncture returns the natural balance to your muscles, using small acupuncture needles. It is one of the safest ways to address physical problems and usually involves only some short-term muscular soreness caused by the involuntary twitching.
Musculosketal Disorders (MSDs) are the most common work-related illness. Over 1 million suffer from MSDs caused by work. An estimated 1.2 million people who worked in 2014/15 were suffering from an illness they believed was caused or made worse by work. Around 80% of the new work-related conditions in 2014/15 were musculoskeletal disorders or stress, depression or anxiety. An estimated 9.5 million working days were lost due to Work related MSDs, an average of 17 days lost for each case. This represents 40% of all days lost due to work related ill-health in 2014/15.

We believe that to perform pro[perly both the mind and the body must be working in harmony. For the body to operate well the mind must be at ease and, for the mind to be at ease the body must be well balanced. Physical ergonomincs is concenred with human anatomical, anthropometric, physiological and biomechanical characteristics as they relate to physical activity. The desired outcome is to achieve an understanding of how to minimise stress and strain on your muscles and joints in your chosen activities. The work place is probably the most important environment with regard to postural strain because we spend as much as eight hours a day in a restricted controlled setting. In our free time we also adopt repetitive postures, whether we are using the internet either on desktop, laptop or smart device, watching TV on the couch or playing the guitar. Again prolonged positioning in the wrong posture can be contributing to your lack of spinal and general health. Finally, when we come to rest, it is important to achieve maximum relaxation and rejuvenation, therefore sleeping posture is important in achieving this. Osteopaths have the ability to address these issues and provide effective treatment and advice tailored to your inidividual needs.
Counselling is an art of listening and provides people the opportunity to talk about their thoughts, feelings and time to self-reflect and think about their choices and behaviour that could be causing issues within their life. Counselling can help people to make positive changes in their lives.
Often clients do not want to burden friends and family with their problems, but may also need support and encouragement by an independent non-judgmental professional listening ear that maintains confidentially and who is not emotionally involved.
