Osteopathy

is a healthcare profession committed to working with people helping them to identify and maximise their ability to function and move throughout their lives

“Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It works with the structure and function of the body, and is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together.
To an osteopath, for your body to work well, its structure must also work well. So osteopaths work to restore your body to a state of balance, where possible without the use of drugs or surgery. Osteopaths use touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body’s own healing mechanisms. They may also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.”

    Osteopathy is a philosophy of healthcare that acknowledges that the living body is a self-renewing, self-regenerating, self-recuperating system which maintains health constantly throughout life. Whenever that health-maintaining system is compromised, symptoms or disease could develop. Osteopathy is concerned with that which has compromised health rather than the resulting condition.

    Osteopaths have been regulated by statute since 1993. They are trained to diagnose conventionally and also to use their hands to assess body function and dysfunction. This gives the osteopath uniquely sensitive information about the disability within the body and how this insight might be used to help restore health.

    Although people commonly describe their symptoms in terms of conventional medical conditions, osteopaths do not primarily treat medical conditions; they are more concerned with the cascade of events which could have contributed to the development of those medical conditions.

    CLIENT TESTIMONIAL on CRANIAL OSTEOPATHY TREATMENTS

    “My little boy, had a cranio Osteopathy treatment done by Sarojni. The treatment really helped him, he suffered from tummy pain and lack of sleep. I would definitely recommend to visit Sutherland House, it’s full of professionals, the staff is lovely and welcoming and the place is very relaxing. Love the fish tank, very calming :-)”

    The Osteopathic Treatment of Children and Newborns

    The Osteopathic Treatment of Children and Newborns
    For decades the gentle hands-on approach of cranial osteopathy has been the treatment of choice for babies who are fretful and crying. Some are traumatized by the birth process or simply overstimulated, while others may have suffered in the womb. Later on in childhood growth is influenced not only by our own genetic programming but also by our experiences in life. As Dr Sutherland said ‘As the twig is bent so doth the tree incline’.
    An osteopath understands the normal phases and many influences upon musculo-skeletal growth. Thus the normal and variant are readily recognized in the young patient. With a knowledge of those diseases which occur in childhood and an understanding of critical growth periods, the osteopath may influence development. A sensitive awareness of the emotional challenges which affect a child completes the practitioner’s holistic approach. Thus the critical periods of a young person’s life are supported and health is encouraged.

      We are proud of the excellence we provide in compassionate care and expertise we offer through our commitment to research in treatment of the highest and safest standards
