Osteopathy for the family
People of all ages come to see us for a wide range of problems. Our oldest patient being 97 and our youngest 3 days old. Each phase of life provides its own challenges and it is with great pleasure that we have been able to help people of all age groups improve their potential to live their lives to their best advantage.
Treating the individual rather than the symptoms allows us to assist the body in its attempt to resolve these problems of disturbed function. Our philosophy of only doing what is necessary to overcome the barrier to health, and let the body’s own inherent wisdom get on with the work means that the techniques your Osteopath uses to restore harmony to the body is usually gentle and very specific.
The sense of touch (palpation) developed during years of training, allows the gathering of important diagnostic information. This permits the Osteopath to make a skilled minimal intervention through the body’s neuromuscular skeletal system which has a profound effect on the total body economy.
“After living with a chronic back problem for thirteen years, Crista Galli were recommended to me in 2001. I must admit I was sceptical that any practice would be able to help resolve my problem. How wrong was I! Jeremy treated the underlying problem rather than the consequence. Now I just need a regular maintenance treatment every three months. I cannot recommend the practice highly enough. They have helped me enjoy a life without back related crises and for that I am truly thankful.”JW NW6
Unless you are in severe pain your Osteopath will rarely see you more than once a week. This allows your body time to respond to the treatment given and optimises the treatment process, meaning less treatment in the long run. It also allows the best attention to the underlying cause of the current symptoms in an attempt to reduce or eliminate the possibilities of reoccurrence.
