Osteopathic Treatment

Osteopathy is a primary health care system, complementary to other medical practices. It is suitable for almost anyone and can contribute to the treatment and management of a wide range of conditions. Osteopaths primarily work through the neuro-musculo-skeletal system, mostly on muscles and joints, using holistic and patient-centred approaches.

A core principle behind osteopathy is the idea that the body is an integrated whole, and contains self-healing mechanisms that can be supported as part of the treatment. No part of the body works, or can be considered, in isolation. Relevant psychological and social factors also form part of the process of patient diagnosis.

Osteopathic treatment is aimed at improving the mechanics of the body which automatically influences areas such as blood and nerve supply as well as activity of the internal organs. It is because of this that osteopathy, as well as treating the more obvious headaches, back pain, joint problems, sports injuries and postural strains, can also be used in the treatment of less obvious conditions such as asthma, digestive disorders, menstrual problems and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Myofascial Osteopathy

Myofascial Release (“Myo” = muscle & “fascia” = connective tissue) is technique used to release tension, turgor & pull within this matrix created by muscle and connective tissue. Myofascial Release is a very effective to help relieve pain and restore function by providing a release into myofascial restrictions (tightness in connective tissue, scar tissue, injured areas).

The matrix like system of the fascia tissue supports and protects the body’s muscles and organs. In its healthy state, it is supple and resilient and moves easily over our muscles. However, the fascia can become tight and inflexible over time due to poor posture, overuse, injury illness or emotional stress.

Considering fascia permeates all regions of the body and is interconnected, when it scars and hardens in one area (following injury, inflammation, disease, surgery, or even long term poor posture), it can put tension on adjacent pain-sensitive structures as well as on structures in far-away areas and with accumulative effects. The fascia can exert excessive pressure producing pain or restriction of motion as well as create compensatory patterns influencing many aspects of our bodies. Even though these adhesions do not show up on x-rays or other scans, they can stiffen joints or contribute to painful motions, such as rotator cuff injuries. If adhesions occur near a nerve, they may cause numbness, pain, and tingling, as with sciatica or carpal tunnel syndrome.

Since fascia is throughout your body, releasing fascial tension can help a wide variety of complaints, which include but are not limited to: Headaches, muscle pain, back & neck pain, shoulder pain, poor posture, sports injuries, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, stress and depression, shin splints, frozen shoulder, knee problems, nerve entrapments & Impingement and whiplash.

Osteopathic myofascial release focuses on imbalances of posture, shortened muscles, and restricted fascia like adhesions or scars. It addresses not just the muscles or the skin, but on the entire structures to lengthen, separate, or reposition them relative to other structures. Myofascial release is also enhances the body’s innate restorative powers by improving circulation and nervous system transmission.

Visceral Osteopathy

Osteopaths are looking at the body as a whole in working diagnosis of pain and its source. Visceral Osteopathy observes and assesses the movements and quality of internal organs (also called viscera: stomach, liver, intestines, lungs, etc..) to treat back, neck, shoulders, and legs problems. Spinal pain  can be local, but it also has a knock on effect to the associated organs whereby the nerves exits the spine and feed associated organs. inturn if any problematic, 'sick', sluggish, congested organ can send this feedback to the spine or correlating limb or joint and contribute to spinal pain.

Treatment  can be partially claimed back on. This amount of claim back is dependent on the Health Insurer provider & the patient's Health plan. 

  • Check your Health Insurer policy to understand what services you are covered for. 

  • Tax payers can claim treatment expenses by using the Med 1 Form.

Cranial Osteopathy

Cranial Osteopathy uses very gentle pressure by a skilled practitioner to engage in the cranial rhythm in the entire body to encourage and manipulate the release of stresses throughout the body. By releasing these strain, restriction and tension in the body’s tissue structures; the body is encouraged back into Homeostasis, Balance, Wellbeing and Health.

Cranial osteopathy involves the palpation of small fluctuations of movement within the body and cranial system called involuntary motion. This is expansion and contraction of all the tissues, occurring 6 – 14 times a minute. This can be referred to as CRI (cranial rhythm impulse), which is essentially the pulse of the cranial rhythm. Just as our circulatory system, this pulse can be indictive of health and strain within the cranial system. The cranial rhythm can be easily disturbed by any form of trauma, such as a difficult birth, a car accident, Sports inures, Surgical operations, Dental Work and falls and general illness and Emotional TRAUMA. Gradually the body may accumulate these strains overtime. This accumulation within the body can then display symptoms or pain in the body. This can be joint aches, pains, fatigue, muscle tension, headaches, facial pain, proneness to injuries, strain on internal organ functions, mental stress/ overwhelm, imbalance in our physiological stress response (rest/digest & fight/flight response) and our ability to cope with life stressors. cranial therapy removes the restrictions that prevent the body from optimal health and homostaisi. this therapy is one of an Osteopaths key tools in treatment and the foundation of Osteopath and one of the key Osteopathic Principles 'The body is a unit'.

Cranial Osteopathy improves fluid motion, relaxes muscle tension, improves joint articulation and movement.

When does an osteopath use cranial therapy; to treat headaches, migraines, hormonal imbalances, chronic pain & pain syndromes, spinal dysfunctions (nerve root irritation, nerve entrapment, compressed disc, arthritis’s & degenerative joints, post-operative cases), T.M.J disorders (teeth grinding, clenching, facial pain), head injuries (whiplash, trauma, accidents, falls).

Cranial Osteopathy is suitable for all ages and many conditions. As it is an extremely gentle treatment it is even suitable for newborn babies and the very elderly.




"Having had persistent trouble with back pain and numerous physio sessions I visited Rose for a back massage. The improvement in my pain and discomfort was huge. Rose listened when I told her the areas I had most trouble with and concentrated on those areas. 

Clinic is easy to find, evening appointments a plus."


''My treatment was a mixture of things from needling to deep tissue massage 

My experience with Rose was outstanding. Her knowledge is second to none. I was suffering with a sore back for quite a long time I always knew what the issue was and just taught I would always need treatment but she explained how I could work on it aswell to help improve the pain and also helped me understand exactly why I was in pain. I have never felt better. I would highly recommend Rose and her clinic."


''An OT recommended Rose for me .
I was in a lot of pain in my shoulders and neck. I was bent forward too painful to straighten up.
Rose spends an hour working on me which I have never had before, she is so thorough 
with her work. 
I am now standing much more straight and have stopped topperling . 
As I still need some more work I will definitely be going back to Rose 

Incredible so happy at long last to have found proper help and someone who cares''

'' I had never been to a Therapy Clinic before or had a massage. I sat with Rose for an initial consultation and she was incredibly helpful in outlining the source of my back pain and helping to relieve it. A very friendly person and a true professional. She takes great pride in her work and I would recommend her to anyone, in fact, I have already recommended her to a few people and my treatment was only yesterday! 


'' I developed knee pain recently when running. It was grating and still painful the following day after a run. Rose did a deep tissue massage; dry needling along with stretching. She gave me advice to work with at home and my running is not giving me trouble anymore. I highly recommend Rose, she explained what was going on and gave me a plan to get me back on track. ."
