In-clinic sessions

We have an Osteopath offering session at our clinics in Buckhurst Hill and Henley-on-Thames.

How We Can help


Osteopathy is the treatment of the body by using physical manipulation of the tissue and bones.

An Osteopath aims to aid the normal function and stability of the joints to help the body heal its injury. 

The techniques the practitioner may use, aim to reduce pain, improve movement and encourage blood flow.


Osteopaths can use various “hands-on” techniques to help different issues within the body. 

Some of these approaches include:

  • Massage – to relax muscles
  • Stretching stiff joints
  • Articulation – moving your joins within their natural range of motion. 
  • High-velocity thrusts – short, sharp movements which may cause a clicking sound. 
  • Acupuncture – thin sterilised needles 

Some Osteopaths are also qualified to include Acupuncture within their sessions. 

Helps With:

  • Posture Related Injuries
  • Upper and Lower Back Pain
  • Headaches
  • Neck and Shoulder Pain
  • Trapped Nerves
  • Sports Injuries
  • Muscle injuries including Tendonitis
  • Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)
  • Pain associated with Pregnancy
  • Sciatica 
  • Stress related pain
  • Plus much more

Treatment Information

Once you have made the decision to have Osteopathy your therapist will contact you to discuss what you want to achieve from your sessions. You will be asked what you are seeking Osteopathy for and explore your goals. The therapist will also take this time to sign their paperwork with you, explaining their contract and policies. 

During your initial appointment, the therapist will explain what Osteopathy is and how it works, taking time to answer any questions you may have. 

Osteopathy is not usually painful, although it’s not unusual to feel sore or stiff in the first few days after treatment, particularly if you’re having treatment for a painful or inflamed injury.

You may be given advice on self-help and exercise to aid your recovery and prevent symptoms from returning or getting worse.

The amount of sessions needed varies for different people, some may need frequent sessions, whereas others have infrequent sessions over a period of time. 

If subsequent sessions are needed, these sessions will be used to reflect, discuss, and then conduct further Osteopathy techniques.
