Osteopathy is a hands on system of diagnosis and treatment that is used most frequently to treat pain and disability. Osteopathy offers a way of detecting and treating damaged parts of the body suchas muscles, ligaments, nerves, tendons and joints. Treatment is hands on using types of massage and manipulation to improve the condition of the soft tissues and joints of the body.

Sian Greeves established Dunelm Complementary Medicine in 1990. The practice was multi-disciplinary for many years but now features Osteopathy only at present.

Osteopathy is a safe, hands-on therapy that focuses on the framework of your body, consisting of the bones, ligaments, muscles and connective tissues. Osteopaths assess the condition of thismusculo-skeletal system looking for areas of weakness, imbalance and excessive tension or strain. We use a range of techniques, from soft tissue massage, stretching and joint mobilisation and manipulation in order to treat the cause of pain, rather than the symptoms.
