Osteopathy is a primary health care system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical symptoms. It focuses on restoring total body health by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletalframework which consists of joints, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue.
The practice has been established since 1986. The practice is the only one in the area to provide both Osteopathic and Acupuncture treatment by registered practitioners in both disciplines. We arethoroughly trained as Osteopaths and Acupuncturists and use mobilization, deep tissue massage and electrotherapy together with Osteopathic manipulation and Acupuncture to restore health and relieve pain.
Osteopathy is an established system of diagnosis and treatment, which lays its main emphasis on the structural integrity of the body. An osteopath's job is to diagnose and treat faults that occur inthe mechanical function of the musculo-skeletal system. These faults may occur due to injury, illness, stress, incorrect posture and many other varied factors.
Osteopaths are regulated by the General Osteopathic Council and the title "osteopath" is protected by law. I used to suffer from chronic tension headache and stiff shoulders. Within a couple oftreatments my headaches had greatly reduced and then they disappeared after the third treatment. Ania can relieve tension in all those places which are difficult to stretch out. My shoulders and upper back now feel looser and I am a lot more comfortable. It is such a relief to be rid of those headaches!

As Osteopathy deals with the relationship between the structure of the body, its functionality, its connection with muscle, soft tissue and organs, so Our Vision at Zest is all aboutinterconnectivity. Instead of labelling and isolating a single body part as problematic we aim to understand the deeper underlying issues that brought about the initial imbalance and treat all of these issues using a multi-disciplinary approach. Our Ethos is to enable you to find your own natural inner balance.

Osteopaths work with the approach that the whole body will work well if your body is in good structural balance. For example, if you have a bicycle with one tyre slightly bent, a lot more effort isneeded to ride it. The same applies to the human body, which is why it is important to keep the body in good balance (and have regular checks).
