When to see an Osteopath?

Osteopathy can help with a number of complains. It can help as a main treatment for musculoskeletal conditions, as well as maintenance to allow you to keep living your life to its full potential, even when suffering with aches and pains. It helps with the healing after pregnancy, birth, injuries and traumas. Even when you feel like there is no particular complaint with your body, a treatment can be done as preventative medicine and improve your bodies functionality with the everyday strains and stresses that modern life gives us.

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a holistic way to assess and treat the body for a variety of complains. Everything in the body is connected which means that an injury or tension can effect the whole body in its function. With an osteopathic examination and treatment approach we aim to detect the underlying disfunction, balance it out to help your body to rebalance itselt. The way I work includes 3 different approaches:

The cranial osteopathic approach:

Cranial Osteopathy addresses the body's own healing mechanism, improving general vitality of tissues and works on the nervous system, as well as membranes and connective tissue in the body. It also works on ligaments by letting the body find its own balance after injuries or misalignments. As our cells and tissues know where they are supposed to be, to cause the least tension in the surrounding tissues, we can let them settle into this state of released tension. By reteaching the nerves about the body's proprioception in this newfound state of balance, the body can then act most effectively as an 'inner physician'.

The visceral osteopathic approach:

Visceral Osteopathy looks at the organs and the tissues that lie around it. Our organs are suspended from the spine and get their nerve supply from the spine, the head and/ or the sacrum. A number of issues can effect the viscera - from scars, allergies/ intolerances, over stress to metabolic imbalances. With gentle manual therapy techniques these tensions can be released and mobility, as well as function of the organs can improve our overall wellbeing and our skeletal structure.

The structural osteopathic approach:

Structural Osteopathy is the most commonly practiced approach within the osteopathic field in the UK. It is a way to improve and align the body's function and structure by aligning the spine, mobilising joints and releasing muscle and fascial tension.

Osteopathic massage (based on classical osteopathy):

Within an osteopathic massage I include all the principles of osteopathy in a full body mobilisation, working through all the joints and loosening the whole body from tensions. This approach is a great holistic massage as well as a preventative full body treatment. People with sedentary lifestyles, bad posture, intense sportive activities and joint degenerative disorders can highly benefit from this kind of treatment.

Knee Pain
"I cannot recommend Hiisha more highly. She is so knowledge, caring and knows exactly how to help and ease the pain. I have had a bad knee for many years and after my 1st session with Hiisha it felt like I had been given a new lease of life, it was like a miracle. She talks you though every aspect of the treatment to ensure you are ok and discusses things that you can do in between sessions that will help. Hiisha is really empathetic and ensures you are at ease and finds a way to make you better & help the situation. I have total trust in her. I look forward to my treatment as I know I will always see an improvement afterwards. I have recommended a friend to see her and she has been equally delighted with Hiisha's work."
Neck and Hip Pain
"I have been seeing Hiisha for 9 months. She is extremely knowledgeable and caring and explains exactly what she is doing to help the problem. She always seems to find the exact cause of the problem and gives good exercises to help maintain full strength. I would highly recommend seeing Hiisha."
Pregnancy Care
"Amazing osteopath! Hiisha has treated me throughout the second half of my pregnancy and has helped so much with back pain, pelvic girdle pain and general aches and pains from carrying around a bigger weight each week! From the first session I felt so much better, and I can feel the tension release during each session, so much so that I really look forward to going each time. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Hiisha to anyone looking for an osteopath, not just in pregnancy and I can’t thank her enough for giving me so much more movement during this pregnancy."
