Sensible Osteopathy is a family practice that deals with all genders and age groups. We have a particular interest and expertise in osteopathy for babies and children and women’s health. Our experience with Osteopathy comes from New Zealand, the UK and Germany.

Osteopathy is a holistic approach to health-care that comprises all functions and influences including the body, emotions, mind and spirit. Therefore Osteopathy is more than just manipulation of the musculoskeletal system.

Osteopathy – More than Manipulation of the Musculoskeletal System
Osteopathy is a holistic form of complementary health-care that uses gentle manual techniques to support the body in its natural capacity to release tensions and overcome dysfunctions.  Osteopaths have an appreciation that all functions of the body are inherently linked and can affect each other.

The Osteopath gently works with the body’s structure, to enhance function which precipitates the self-healing process. Osteopathic Medicine aims to establish normal balance between all the systems of the body.

Osteopathic treatment involves manual techniques including soft tissue stretching and massage, along with articulation, gentle joint manipulation, mobilization of the joints and organs and cranial osteopathic treatment.  This type of treatment is designed to to release tension and to improve blood circulation, lymphatic drainage and general fluid flow throughout the body, while helping to alleviate disruptive influences on the nervous system and improving overall body mobility. In other words, osteopaths look at the human body as a ‘total picture’ or holistically.
