Osteopathy is a manual therapy that uses a combination of hands on techniques that include soft tissue massage, articulation/mobilisation, counter-strain, high velocity-low amplitude manipulation, stretching, exercise and ergonomic advice. Heath also practices dry needling and taping within his consults.

An acute injury often will respond well and require only 2 - 4 treatment sessions, with more chronic conditions requiring more.
