Osteopathy is a primary care profession. It is a method of diagnosis, treatment, prevention and rehabilitation.
The Osteopath’s aim is to find the cause of the patient’s presentation rather than just treating the symptoms. By treating the structure, the osteopath restores the body’s function and therefore allows it to heal itself. The body should be in a state of balance.
We treat people of all ages, including pregnant and post partum women, babies, children, teenagers, adults and seniors. We consider each person as an individual therefore treatment is different for every patient.
Treatment includes techniques such as soft tissue and myofascial techniques to release muscular tension, joint articulation and manipulation to improve mobility, cranial therapy to rebalance the body and visceral and fascial technique to release deeper restrictions.
Various conditions presented in practice include:
Viscera is the collective name for the organs present in the chest, abdomen and pelvis. Visceral osteopathy therefore seeks to release tensions from the tissues of these organs to allow them to function freely. Often when there is a build up of tension in these organs they exert a pull on the spine through their ligamentous attachments. Visceral osteopathy may also aid functional problems of poor digestion or restricted breathing by directly addressing poor mobility of the organs in question.

Went twice to see Sophia Ermogenous for back pain. Sophia has a nice touch and explains what she is doing. Wonderful results few days after with the exercises she sent me to practice at home. Highly recommended. Michael Cable

Hightly recommend. Had some treatment here with Sophia, she was fantastic. What I Initially thought was a big problem was easily fixed in two sessions and she gave great follow up exercises. Christopher Phillips
Eglantine is someone I trust with my eyes closed. She is knowledgable, gentle, thorough and loves what she does. I have seen her for treatment many times over the years and I always refer friends. She never disappoints! Highly recommend. Maude Huguet
