What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a therapy that uses manual methods to identify and to treat areas where the body is not moving properly and which are causing pain, discomfort and other difficulties. Osteopathy is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues all functioning correctly together. Any loss of mobility can cause an imbalance in the patient’s state of health; this can affect not only joints but also nerves, ligaments and internal organs, at the site of the problem and also in other areas in the body.
Has worked as an osteopath in France for 5 years, since when he has been treating patients in Abingdon and Didcot. He also teaches at the British School of Osteopathy in London, where he is also studying for a doctorate in osteopathy. He is interested in research and has published articles in scientific journals. He believes an important part of getting better is your own understanding of symptoms, how treatments may help and how to make the effects last. His speciality areas are:
