Although osteopaths treat many conditions, most people think of us as relieving back pain. However, our approach is holistic, and we believe that your entire body will work more harmoniously if you maintain its natural balance. Like a car, if a part is worn its overall performance will suffer, and it may eventually break down. The inevitable result for your body is wear and tear, and consequent pain.

The British Medical Association’s guidance for general practitioners states that doctors can safely refer patients to osteopaths.

What to expect

We use a wide range of techniques, including touch, physical manipulation, and massage. These help to increase the suppleness and mobility of your joints, to relieve muscle tension and pain, and to encourage your body’s own healing powers.

Who and what we treat

We can treat people of all ages, from the newborn to the elderly. Our therapies are gentle and we regularly treat children and pregnant women.

Some of the most common complaints we see at Marlborough House are back and neck pain, trapped nerves and sciatica, muscle tension and headaches, trauma from falls, and injuries from sports or car accidents.

Cranial osteopathy is a particularly gentle therapy. It can be helpful for people of any age, but especially useful for babies and children and the many ailments that trouble them. Remember – you are welcome to make a free 20-minute appointment with us for a back check and to discuss your concerns.

Please note: we highly recommend that babies’ and children’s ailments are reported and discussed with your GP to ensure your children have the very best possible care
