Let me take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Tristan Hill and I'm the osteopath practicing at the Bingham Osteopathic Clinic. Osteopathy is a medical profession that many have heardof, but a relative few have had first hand experience with. Before I talk about osteopathy in the present, let me fill you in on its past. Osteopathy was founded in America in 1874 by Dr Andrew Taylor Still, a frontier doctor.
Before I started going to Barry seven years ago my back pain was so bad that I could barely move. Now I can enjoy gardening again.

Osteopathy is a form of musculoskeletal therapy that treats joints, ligaments and muscles to help restore movement, improve posture and relieve pain. Osteopaths are primarily concerned with restoringjoint motion, but treatment is holistic, meaning to 'consider the whole', and sessions can include advice regarding lifestyle and exercise. Treatment frequently includes soft tissue massage, joint manipulation and acupuncture.

Nick Woodhead (website) qualified at the British School of Osteopathy in 1977 and has been in private osteopathic practice since then, predominantly utilising the involuntary mechanism approach,having been privileged to have received instruction from several members of the group of teachers originally established by Dr. Sutherland both in the UK and USA, including Rollin Becker, Edna Lay and Robert Fulford.
By law an osteopath has to be registered with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC). Qualification to be an osteopath requires studying for 4-5 years for an undergraduate degree, and then compulsorycontinuing study every year after graduation. The British Medical Association's guidance for doctors states that they can safely refer patients to osteopaths.
Osteopathy focuses on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of musculo-skeletal disorders and osteopaths seek to restore the optimal functioning of the body and aid its ability to heal. At WisteriaHouse, the use of gentle treatment techniques are favoured including the 'cranial' approach, which is applicable to a wide range of conditions.
