Happy New year for 2009!

Welcome to the January 2009 Newsletter from Kingston & Teddington Osteopathy!



We have now been at Park Road for one year and I am really pleased with how the practice has grown. Osteopaths Hilary, Mark and Lucy have helped me make a dedicated team that has many talents to hopefully help keep everyone in great health.

The beginning of a year is always a very positive time – it’s a fresh start and a time to set new goals...

With this in mind, I wish you full realisation of your goals and a great year ahead in 2009.


Practice News - Cranial Osteopathy Clinic

Mark last year gained his Cranial Osteopath qualification and has now joined Carragh in treating babies, children and adults with this additional technique.

What is Cranial Osteopathy?

Cranial osteopathy is a branch of osteopathy that is very subtle and aims to relieve the fascial tensions throughout the body, including the head. It is a technique that complements structural osteopathy for a wide range of problems in adults such as migraines/headaches; jaw dysfunction; whiplash; ME; recurrent infections; sinus problems and can even be effective in helping the body cope with suppressed immune systems (eg during chemotherapy).

In babies this technique is effective for reducing the ‘moulding’ effect on the baby’s head during labour. Symptoms often present as increased crying, colic, sleeping and feeding difficulties.

In older children cranial osteopathy helps those who have recurrent ear infections; asthma; sinus and dental problems; headaches and growing pains.

Marathon Runners

For any long distance runners and especially anyone training for the marathon, Kingston & Teddington Osteopathy would like to recommend regular deep tissue massage to help your muscles cope with the impact and strain of running all those miles.

Cramp, knee pains, foot pains and even back pain are common side effects of training. Osteopathy provides the deep tissue massage for the legs and hips and by also working on the ankle, knee and hip joints should help alleviate any of these symptoms. Please call us on 0208 977 6396 to book your marathon training treatment.


For any queries please do contact us at the practice on 0208 977 6396 or 07957 348 513.
