Osteopathy is a safe and natural therapy that focuses on the framework of the body consisting of the bones, ligaments, muscles and connective tissues or fascia. Osteopaths assess the condition of thismusculo-skeletal system looking for areas of weakness, imbalance and excessive strain. Any potential 'weak points' will determine how well the body functions and they will have an influence on the general health of the whole body.
