Approaches used by Osteopaths
Osteopathy has been in the UK for over 100 years! Considered an effective and safe treatment for a great number of our health problems.
Osteopaths think of the body as an inter-connected whole.
Treatment is “hands on” using gentle stretching, massage, mobilisation and manipulation.
This aims to positively affect the body’s nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems; helping the body to help itself.
Recovering from a Sports or Work Related injury can be frustrating. Sometimes our bodies need a “helping hand”.
By using the drug-free hands-on approach that focuses on the health of the whole body not just the injured or affected part, you can start on the road to recovery.
Osteopathy can help with initial Sports Rehab, hands-on treatment and advice to longer term management, exercise prescription and rehabilitation.
Western Acupuncture is a therapeutic treatment involving the insertion of fine single-use acupuncture needles into the muscles and structures around the joints.
Many people find it a relaxes and soothes; some find relief from pain. Others have found it useful for immediate treatment for Sports Injuries or other acute problems.
However, there are many receptive to this approach and find it helps them manage their pain.

My back was hurt during an accident at work. I first went to a Physiotherapist and then saw a Chiropractor, both with limited success. I finally contacted Charles who I knew from friend recommendations. After only 3 treatments I had made more progress than all the other treatments put together. I am no longer receiving treatment and only following a set of exercises which Charles has given me. He is still in regular contact with me to monitor my progress. I wish I had gone to him sooner.
I went to see Charles on a recommendation from a neighbour because my knee pain was getting worse and affecting my Nordic walking. On questioning Charles suggested my problem really stemmed from a previous ankle injury that had never fully recovered. After 4 sessions, I could not believe the difference, and I’m now being back on the poles!. Thanks Charles
Charles, just wanted to say a belated thank you for your treatment of my back and your introduction to Indah and her Pilates class. I went riding last week for the first time since and my back was fine – legs were iffy but aching in a good way! Thank you again and as long as I keep active, I am confident my back will remain strong – hope these are not famous last words!
Afternoon Charles – just some feedback, even though my leg is sore and tender I’m walking a lot better. I’m sure over the next few days it will be back to normal. Also slept a lot better, so I’d like to thank you, you seem to have sorted it.
Although it’s just over three weeks since I first visited you, I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for your very helpful treatment. After I left I felt very energised and quite well, (many times before with others I’ve felt ill and shivery) and I had the best neck treatment ever that left no head-achy side effects.
I have been seeing Charles since he started in Barry in 2007 as I suffer from neck arthritis (cervical spondylosis), which causes much stiffness and pain. I was not prepared to go along the route of daily painkillers and find a regular mix of Osteopathy and Acupuncture from Charles allows me to get on with my life with the minimum of fuss.
Morning Charles, just wanted to say thank you again for seeing me and working your magic on my neck. I slept so much better and my range of movement in work has been a lot better.
I’ve had several unhappy experiences with osteopaths and chiropractors before settling on Charles, but because he explains what he is doing and his manner is very calming, even when I have a silly or very painful injury, I always feel safe being treated by him. I trust his treatments and his advice and he is always happy to liaise with my G.P. to make sure that I’m receiving the appropriate treatment for any or all of my issues. It’s tricky to find a reliable, local osteopath, who fees are reasonable (and who has Saturday appointments), so I’m happy to recommend Charles for head to toe treatment.
I completed my Half Iron-man Triathlon event with NO issues with my legs…..sorry that’s not quite correct. They bloody well ache and have done so for the past few days but that was to be expected as I do not run between events. But I am not complaining. Much to my surprise I came 3rd in my age group and ended up with a Bronze medal in the National Championships. So your expertise had a positive effect. Great meeting you and sorry you are not closer to me but with your positive attitude you will never be short of work.
Back is doing great today. Thanks again Charles. Best £30 I have ever spent!
