Osteopathy in Fulham
Osteopathy is at the same time philosophy, science and art. Art is the application of this philosophy and science in practice.
You can expect our osteopaths to distinguish key dysfunction complexes from eventual outcome. This is crucial for the choice of technique and treatment success, and creates the perfect combination and adaptation between structural, visceral and cranial osteopathy, depending on the unique individual treatment.
Nutrition, mental and social situations, as well as other life factors are taken into account to determine the therapy and treatment required. Quite often the cause of pain can actually be located away from the area of concern, having alterations of the body that lead to pains or discomforts and various kind.
Our care is delivered via a range of interventions which may include onward referral to a specialist, health management, advice and exercise prescriptions. It means we do not just provide excellent manual therapy but we also look after our patients by referring them to specialist, or for health maintenance, advice and exercise. Osteopathy is covered by all the main insurances, find out yours! check out the following link: INSURANCESMeet our Osteopaths based in Fulham Broadway
Pregnancy can be a wonderful time – one when your body undergoes many natural changes to accommodate a growing new life. For some expectant mothers, these changes, as well as carrying the extra weight of the baby, can cause discomfort, back and pelvis pain. Other discomforts such as nausea and digestive issues can interfere with what should be a happy and exciting time.
Osteopathy uses gentle hands-on techniques to ease those aches and pains, while working alongside your midwife and doctor for excellent support and advice on how to maintain a strong and healthy body, both before and after the delivery. Our professional and warm osteopathic services can help you enhance your pregnancy experience.
Babies & Toddlers
Osteopathic care can also help your baby or child grow up healthy and happy, minimizing sleeping disorders, digestive issues and even behavioral issues.

Baby Massage Course
Infants who experience regular massage see enhanced motor development and reduced cortisol. It is especially helpful for children who require additional support, including babies born premature, babies born addicted, and HIV+ babies. Infant massage increases caregiver bonding, whether a mother, father, foster parent, or another adult is providing massage. These benefits seem to increase parent confidence and may even benefit mothers with postpartum depression. Including infant massage in an evening routine increases melatonin for the child, improving the sleep cycle. It can be especially helpful for children experiencing sleep delays, making nights less stressful for parents and children alike.Meet the Teacher based in Fulham
Paediatric / Breastfeeding Consultation. Expertise in Fulham, London
Our Paediatric consultation is a common medical process that involves the assessment and diagnosis of conditions affecting children and, to a certain extent, teens, as well as the management of the overall health and wellness of the patients through certain preventative measures.
The intensive training, however, is incredibly necessary since children as patients are different from the adults. Since their physiology varies, their medical needs and the conditions that commonly affect them may not be seen in adults. For instance, congenital deformities are more common in pediatrics than in internal medicine.
Further, as childhood is a critical stage, our pediatrician closely monitors the growth and development of their patients, which would mean strict regular visits.
The psychology of children also varies from that of the adults. Children often don’t have a deep grasp of pain and illness. Many also don’t know how to express their symptoms, and the lack of understanding often forces them to throw tantrums or withdraw themselves from others. Our Pediatrician has the skill to establish a good relationship not only with the parents but also with the children, aside from in-depth medical knowledge and expertise.Meet our Paediatrician based in Fulham Broadway
Massage, your Manual Therapist in Fulham
Touch is the first sense to develop and the primary means of proving love to a person.
The skin is the largest sensory organ in our body and it is also a huge sensor packed with nerves for keeping the brain in touch with the outside world.Meet our Therapists
Every massage can be tailored to suit your individual needs and will focus on nurturing and calming the body and mind. It can be great for those who have had a hard working week, are in need of some quick stress relief, or for those who just deserve a pamper.
Massage therapy can be a wonderful complementary choice for pre-natal care, and can also relieve many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backache, a stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling).
Pregnancy massage can also reduce stress on weight-bearing joints, encourage blood and lymph circulation, relax nervous tension for better sleep, and help relieve depression or anxiety triggered by hormonal changes.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a type of massage that encourages the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. The lymph system depends on intrinsic contractions of the smooth muscle cells in the walls of lymph vessels (peristalsis) and the movement of skeletal muscles to propel lymph through the vessels to lymph nodes and then to the lymph ducts which return lymph to the cardiovascular system. Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure (less than 9 ounces per square inch or about 4 kPa) and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow.
