Chiropractors focus on your spine, muscle, and nervous system and treat the bones, muscles, soft tissues, and joints that you use every day.
The spine, muscle, and nervous system supports your weight, keeps your body stable, protects your organs, and keeps you moving. It also connects directly to other vital systems in your body, which is why medical professionals, researchers, and the wider health community trust the spine care expertise of chiropractors to assess, diagnose, and treat conditions and injuries related to the spine, muscle, and nervous system.

Osteopathy is a drug-free, non-invasive manual therapy that aims to improve health across all body systems by manipulating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework.
A manual osteopath will focus on the joints, muscles, and spine. Treatment aims to positively affect the body’s nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems. Manual medicine means that both assessment and treatment are carried out with the hands.
Massage Therapy is the application of techniques by a therapist’s hands and arms to the skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments, connective tissues, and joints of the body. A Registered Massage Therapist (R.M.T) has training in assessment techniques, stretching, remedial exercise, and hydrotherapy, which can all be applied for treating various symptoms or conditions. Each session is tailored to your specific needs. Your therapist will discuss and describe the techniques they plan to use prior to your treatment.
Massage Therapists are health care professionals committed to restoring and maintaining optimal health and pain-free function of the body.
