I want to ask some questions about osteopathy

We have another website dedicated to osteopathy. Rather than repeat all the osteopathic FAQs here, we invite you to follow this link

Are you easy to find and is there parking?

Do you have reception?

Yes, we have full time reception. There is always someone available to answer your questions. If for some reason reception is unavailable (sickness, holiday), arrangements will be made to help you as soon as possible.

What is functional testing?

Functional testing looks at functional health and wellbeing. It seeks to answer the question 'How is my body functioning?' Test results do not seek a diagnosis but rather they uncover levels of dysfunction. And dysfunction can be detected across the board - metabolic, nutritional, digestive, hormonal and so on.

What is naturopathic assessment?

Naturopathic assessment could also be called holistic assessment. It is the ability to assess a client from a completely holistic viewpoint and gather as much information as possible that will help to identify underlying causes and areas of dysfunction. This means using a wide range of tools - eg detailed case history, extensive questionnaires, dietary assessment, review of any test results from the previous 12 months, liaison with other practitioners if required (eg a GP), use of blood tests and functional tests.
