Our Osteopath Lucy Green

London trained Osteopath Lucy Green combines Osteopathy, Cranial Osteopathy, Deep tissue massage and Dry needling acupuncture, with over 13yrs of experience working with all ages and levels of health to work intuitively to find better mobility and reduce the pain experienced by her clients.  She works with a calmness, and sense of humour, and always takes time to listen.  Treatment sessions are tailored to your needs, and if you aren’t so keen on the ‘clicking and cracking bit’ Lucy will always take that into consideration.

Some patients make one or two visits a year, others feel they benefit from more regular sessions, or to get them through a ‘bad patch’.  Though she prefers you look after yourself all year, you won’t be scolded for hobbling in bent sideways…. though you will be encouraged to do you stretching and ice packing homework.

Cranial Osteopathy

If you need a more gentle form of Osteopathic treatment Cranial Osteopathy then cranial osteopathy for babies and children may be the answer for you.  Mis-placed bones of the cranium, spine or sacrum, caused by falls, accidents or dentistry can cause areas of compression, strain and tension that lead to symptoms that seem apparently unrelated, or ‘too delayed’ to be linked, even years after the event.

Left untreated, this can result in a whole variety of problems from back pain, neck pain and headaches, to vertigo, sinusitis and arthritis / joint pain. Cranial / Caniosacral Osteopathy is a refined and subtle type of Osteopathic treatment that uses very gentle manipulative pressure to encourage the release of stresses and strains throughout the body, including the head.

Lucy has a wealth of experience in using this type of treatment to work with all ages groups, especially cranial Osteopathy for babies and children, postoperative care, disabilities, migraines and more,

Cranial Osteopathy for babies and children, is the preferred way to treat new-borns (difficult births, colic) and children,(falls, growth spurts) as it is a gentle and non-scary type of Osteopathy.  She also unlimited patience when treating your children and will often join in with the sing-a-long that acts as a handy diversion!  (Parents bringing their children in for treatment are asked to bring a snack or two, a book or favourite toy to help keep them distracted for a while)

What is Cranial Osteopathy?

It is a safe, gentle and very relaxing way of treating body pain and stiffness.  Very little pressure is used during treatments making it ideal for the young, elderly, or the very apprehensive! Lucy regularly chooses Cranial Osteopathy rather than the traditional Osteopathy for sinus issues, headaches, difficult births for babies, the crying sleepless baby, childhood asthma, children with poor concentration or stress related problems, menstrual pain, sciatica, jaw misalignment, IBS, acute whiplash.

Using very subtle and gentle techniques, the accumulated stresses and strains in the body are gradually released. The aim is to relieve current symptoms, and also improve underlying health of the tissues as far as possible in order that they do not recur. Osteopathy helps the body function better in many respects, as well as pain relief, with reports of improved general well being, improved energy levels and sleep patterns.
