The Guildhall Practice has three locations in Birmingham. Firstly, in Birmingham City centre, then Kings Heath and more recently Five Ways Edgbaston.
The practice has expanded over years to offer allied therapies, such as Physiotherapy, Sports Massage and exercise classes.
However, Osteopathy has formed the bed-rock of the Guildhall Practice, since Andrew Leask opened the first practice in 1993.
We are all committed to offering the very highest standard of health care. Therefore you can rest assured that you are in safe hands.
“…Osteopaths use a number of non-invasive treatments such as touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to restore bodily equilibrium through increasing the mobility of joints, relieving muscle tension, enhancing blood and nerve supply to tissues, and encouraging an individual’s own healing mechanisms.” NHS.Your osteopathic treatment often consists of a combination of techniques, dependent upon your individual needs.The techniques used will also depend upon your preferences, and we will never include techniques that you may be uncomfortable with.Osteopathic Soft Tissue Manipulation.Most treatments will involve a degree of osteopathic soft tissue manipulation.Firstly, massage helps to reduce the tension within the soft tissues, including the muscles, tendons and connective tissue.Secondly, it helps the Osteopath to prepare the area around specific joints that we aim to adjust.Osteopathic Manipulation.Osteopaths also adjust individual, specific joints, which we call manipulation.Firstly, the aim of manipulation is to create a slightly gap within the joint, creating a clicking sound. It is rarely painful, and it restores the mobility to the specific joints being adjusted.Secondly, as osteopaths, the manipulation is done in isolation of the soft tissue massage. Because, it is our experience that the more relaxed the surrounding muscles are, the easier it is to manipulate.Finally, you can read more about osteopathy and what to expect if you follow the link.
