Rachel uses a wide range of osteopathic techniques including soft tissue massage and joint manipulation. She has completed post-graduate courses in cranial osteopathy and myofascial techniques. These use a light touch to find tension and strains within the body that can then be treated. Due to the gentle nature of the techniques this is the preferred method for treating babies and young children but it is safe and effective for all ages.
