Patrick as he really stands out from the crowd.
Osteopathic manual medicine is a type of complementary healthcare and can be used alongside other types of healthcare. Osteopathy is a registered profession in the UK. Osteopaths are also primary healthcare practitioners and have diagnostic skills. So we also know when we shouldn’t treat and when referral to other health professionals is needed. We often share the management of conditions with other Health Professionals.
Osteopathy primarily consists of gentle hands on treatment. Involving joint mobilisation & manipulation. The use of varying hand pressure on joints, muscles, fascia and underlying body tissues. At Motion of Health we also use cold laser therapy and electoacupuncture for pain relief and to enhance tissue healing. Patrick also likes to use Naturopathy and Syndrome Acupuncture to help restore balance and energy. Somatic education is a key part of sessions. And this multi-faceted aspect of his practice Has been developed from the many years he has dedicated to learning and teaching martial arts particularly capoeira. As well as from the many movement therapies and rehabilitation techniques he has learned. Chaperones are welcome during sessions, please note that all treatments need continuous consent.
