The following information may help you if you are not familiar with osteopathic treatments:
What to wear? – You will probably be asked to undress to your underwear so please wear clothing in which you are comfortable.
Does it hurt? – Some soft tissue techniques may cause some minor discomfort during treatment but you will be informed on what to expect and techniques can be adapted accordingly. You may feel a little stiff or sore after your treatment but this is a normal and healthy response which should reduce in a day or two.
Do I need to see my doctor first? – Not if you are paying for your own treatment. However, some insurance companies require you to see your doctor first.
How much will it cost? – Prices differ depending on where your treatment is, please call me to find out.
How long will it take? – The first appointment is around 45 minutes, follow up treatments usually last about half an hour.

Who can benefit from osteopathy? – Osteopathic treatment is suitable for virtually everyone; the young or old, office professionals, physical workers, pregnant women, children, sports people and many more.
