Now that we’re happily settled in our new home at Walthamstow, we thought you might like to know a little more about them. Osteopathy can be a great complement to sport and remedial massage therapy, and we have quite a few clients for whom we coordinate their care between osteopathy and sports/remedial massage.
Walthamstow Osteopathy and Natural Health Centre
Walthamstow Osteopathy and Natural Health Centre was set up in 1999 and moved to its current location in 2002. They have seen over 5000 patients from the local area and have had patients ranging in age from 3 days to 95 years.
Osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment which lays its main emphasis on the musculo-skeletal system (bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia) and the way in which this inter-relates with the body as a whole. Osteopaths diagnose and treat dysfunctions that occur because of injury, stress or disease. Instead of treating the symptoms, osteopaths aim to remove the mechanical and other problems that can hinder the body’s natural ability to repair itself.
