What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a non-invasive form of manual therapy that gently and effectively treats a variety of ailments ranging from sports injuries, spinal disorders, infantile colic, neck aches, lower back pain and headaches.

Osteopathy uses in-depth physiological and clinical knowledge, coupled with keen observation skills. Osteopaths will look at your case history with a thorough physical evaluation to diagnose and treat your condition. Diet and lifestyle also inform this process.

The body is treated as a whole unit.

Who should visit an osteopath?

Anyone can visit an osteopath. From newborn to the elderly, we tailor our techniques to your care.

What can I expect in my first consultation?

We will sit down and run through the reasons that have brought you to our clinic. We will then go through various lifestyle and health factors which are also relevant to the diagnosis and treatment. Afterwards, we will run through a gentle, physical treatment, which may involve some light manipulations.

What do I need to bring and/or wear?

Wear comfortable clothes that allow for some freedom of movement. Cotton shorts and T-shirts are best.

Will the treatment hurt?

No. The treatment will be a release, although with some muscles there may be some discomfort as the muscles and joints are released and stretched.

Are there any side effects from treatment?

There are no side effects from treatment. You may experience some mild muscle and tissue discomfort for the first 24-36 hours. This is perfectly normal.

Do I need a referral from a General Practitioner (GP) before I visit an osteopath?

Your Osteopath is a professionally trained primary health care provider. You can visit an Osteopath directly without a GP’s referral.

Can I claim on insurance?

Yes. To claim under most insurance schemes in Hong Kong, you may need to have a referral from your general practitioner. Please confirm with your insurance company.

What are your qualifications?

Our Osteopaths, depending on their home country would have undergone a 4-5 year full time university training in medical sciences, speicalising in musculoskeletal health. We are government registered health care providers in Australia, New Zealand or the United Kingdom.
