Health & Wellbeing
By Steph Lees
Hi! My name is Steph, I am an Osteopath in Four Oaks, and I treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal issues, from arthritic pain to acute sports injures.
If you have any queries about Osteopathy and if/how it would be beneficial to yourself then please come and find me under a big gazebo at the event or talk to one of my team wearing branded tops, and they will be able to point you in the direction of myself.
I am also offering free mini treatments (5-10mins) before and after the event if you wish to come along and see if Osteopathy is for you.
There will be a donation bucket for the charity Shelter, if you wish to donate a small fee for the treatment.
I will be running a promotional offer for the participants of this event.
If you book within a week of the event, your initial consultation shall be half price @ £25 (originally £50). This shall consist of taking a detailed case history covering the reason for the appointment, a past medical history, a postural assessment with specific tests being conducted to enable myself to get a diagnosis. Treatment will be given if safe to do so (I shall explain what is meant by this prior to booking).
Follow up appointments will be at the standard rate of £40, lasting 30 minutes, this is much quicker as less time is needed to go through your presenting complaint due to me having all the relevant information, unless something has changed a lot since your last appointment.
I am regulated by the General Osteopathic Council with my personal ID number – 9990
What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a holistic approach of diagnosing, treating and preventing musculoskeletal issues.
We believe that if structure and function of your body is optimised, then the body will be able to self-regulate and self-heal.
We aim to increase range of movement in joints, releasing muscle tension and increasing fluids to joints and blood to surrounding tissues.
We do this through a wide variety of techniques. For example, we articulate and occasionally mobilise joints (“the crack/pop” that you may be familiar with), we stretch and massage tissues (muscles/ligaments/tendons). Osteopaths can also give advice on exercises to help strengthen tissues or release tissue tension.
