Structural Bodywork

Structural Bodywork combines techniques from Deep Tissue Massage, Sports Massage and Myofascial Release, as well as integrating techniques and principles from Structural Integration and Osteopathy.

Although I incorporate Osteopathic techniques into my treatments these techniques have been learnt on CPD courses and I am not a qualified osteopath. 

I blend techniques and principles from all of the above to tailor the best treatment for your individual needs. Structural Bodywork can help to alleviate chronic pain, stiffness, lack of mobility and muscle tension as well as helping with many postural related problems.

 Individual treatments available
