Mark Woolman - Osteopath
I am a registered Osteopath with the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) and a member of the British Osteopathic Association. I trained and graduated at the British School of Osteopathy.
I am interested in posture and movement, and so helping people to move and stand more comfortably and naturally. I believe posture can have a big impact on how we feel. I specialise in more gentle treatments as I find it most helpful for relaxation and pain relief and also for showing patients how to move more easily.
My South London practice is at Streatham Hill, which includes work with a Carer Association.
What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a safe and gentle form of manual therapy. It is a way of detecting, treating and preventing health problems by moving and stretching a person’s muscles and joints.
Osteopaths work holistically. This means that as well as diagnosing specific structures that are under stress or strain, they look to see why this is happening within the patient’s body and related life style factors which can contribute, such as sitting posture or lifting techniques. This approach helps to return patients to optimum function and reduce stress.
Osteopaths do not use drugs or surgery.
