Osteopathy & Cranial Osteopathy

Therapists: Paul KyteEmma Nicolau

Osteopathy  is  a  system  of  diagnosis  and  treatment  for  a  wide  range  of  medical   conditions. Osteopathic  treatment  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  whilst  considering other factors  that  may  effect  the  healing  process  such  as  environmental  stresses  and   nutrition.  Osteopathy  aims  to  increase  the  mobility  of  joints,  relieve  muscle  tension  and   enhance  the  blood  and  nerve  supply  to  tissues  to  restore  your  body  to  a  state  of   balance where  possible  without  the  use  of  surgery. 

Osteopathy  utilises  a  wide  range  of  techniques  including  massage,  joint  mobilization,   physical  manipulation  and  stretching.  This  breadth  of  approach,  careful  listening  and   observation  of  the  precise  needs  of  the  individual,  ensures  treatment  is  directed   towards  helping  facilitate  your  body’s  own  healing  mechanisms.

Sports Massage 

Therapists: Daniel SchwagerManuel Waldner, Atsuko Hotate

The prime purpose of Sports Massage Therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Where minor injuries and lesions occur, due to overexertion and/or overuse, massage can break them down quickly and effectively. Above all, it can help to prevent those niggling injuries that so often get in the way of performance and achievement, whether one is an athlete, ardent keep-fitter or a once a week jogger.

This treatment is not just for the sports person: anyone can benefit from sports massage, including people in physically demanding jobs and those not quite so obvious (occupational, emotional and postural stress may produce many similar characteristics to sports injuries).
