Welcome to my Site, I am Carmel Smythe, I am a osteopath based in Charlton Kings, Cheltenham. Osteopathy can treat a wide range of conditions, including back and joint pains, headaches and evenArthritic complaints. I graduated from The European School of Osteopathy in 1989 after completing a 4 year course. Since then I have been working in Cheltenham and Tewkesbury, where I have enjoyed the challenge of treating a wide range of complaints.

I was born raised and educated in Worcester. I went to The King's School Worcester and from there I attended The British School Of Osteopathy. I graduated at the beginning of the 1990's and for thenext few years worked in practices across the UK from Dorset to Dumfries and Essex to North Yorkshire. In January 96 I moved to New Zealand and worked at what was then the country's busiest practice where I saw between 60-75 patients a week.
Osteopathy is a primary care profession, focusing on the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal disorders, and the effects of these conditions on patients' generalhealth. Using many of the diagnostic procedures applied in conventional medical assessment, Osteopaths seek to restore the optimal functioning of the body, where possible without the use of drugs or surgery.
Whilst these kinds of changes happen in all of our lives, very rarely do they happen over such a short space of time and so rapidly. I am trained to help deal with any factors that might impede orimpact these important changes. I have researched the effect stress can have on pregnancy and on the foetus. It is important to be mindful that all aspects of our being must aspire to remain healthy and balanced, not just our musculoskeletal system.
Osteopathy is a long established therapy which concentrates on the musculoskeletal system and aims to balance the structure of the body so that it can function efficiently. Osteopathy is verysuccessful in the treatment of a wide range of conditions. An osteopath will consider all aspects of a patient's life including their past medical history and lifestyle. Osteopaths treat using their hands to treat any areas of imbalance to aid the body's own healing mechanism.
