What is Osteopathy, and how can it help?
Osteopaths are Primary and Allied Health Practitioners (AHP) who treat a wide range of medical conditions and pain conditions. Osteopathy is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues functioning smoothly together. Osteopaths restore your body to a state of balance using touch, physical manipulation, stretching and massage to improve the mobility of joints, relieve muscle tension, to enhance blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help promote your own body's healing capacity.
After assessment and treatment, Hannah will provide a tailored rehabilitation regime compromising of strengthening and stretching to each patient, and will continue to monitor your progress in clinic and throughout the treatment sessions.
Hannah welcomes all ages, from children to elderly, and a wide range of conditions; sports injuries, back pain, stress, to pre and post-partum pain.
Hannah's Specialist interests include:
- Stress, and the effect on the body
- Pain and pain management
- Sports injuries; in particular runners
- Pre and postpartum women
Hannah has ran several international half and full marathons, this has led her to develop an understanding of how sports injuries can affect an athlete physically and emotionally, and has a passion to help people to return to activities they love doing!
Hannah has an interest in how stress and trauma affect the body, and she gave a talk in May 2019 for Oxford University’s mental health week, to provide their students with helpful tips to combat stress and anxiety (from an osteopathic and allied health perspective).

We need to collect personal information about your health in order to provide you with the best and most appropriate treatment. Your request to treatment, and our agreement to provide that care constitutes a contract.

We have a “Legitimate Interest” in collecting that information, because without it we couldn’t do our job in a safe and effective manner.
We also feel that it is important that we can contact you in order to confirm your appointments with us or to update you on matters that are related to your medical care. This again constitutes “Legitimate Interest”, but this time it is your legitimate interest.

• Our reception staff, because they organise our practitioners’ diaries, and coordinate appointments and
reminders (but they do not have access to your medical history or sensitive personal information)
• We may also use Mailchimp to coordinate our messages, so your name and email address may be saved on their server.From time to time, we may have to employ consultants to perform tasks which might give them access to your personal data (but not your medical notes).
