Welcome to our osteopathic practice where we offer gentle osteopathic treatment for the whole family, from newborn to the elderly. We have a special interest in cranial osteopathy (or cranial sacral osteopathy).
Osteopathy is a holistic approach to healthcare focusing on the structure and function of the body so we consider, for example, muscles, ligaments, nerves, bones, joints and the circulation of fluids.
We hold appointments at Axminster Health & Wellbeing Centre, Chard Street, Axminster EX13 7DZ (www.axminsterwellbeing.com)
and in Chardstock, Axminster, Devon, EX13 7DD.
For appointments at either clinic please call 01460 220854 or 07773 122832.
There is no receptionist, so if we do not answer the phone in person please
leave a message and we will return your call.
Osteopathy is a manual therapy so we use our hands to relieve pain, tension and stiffness, helping you to feel more comfortable and to help your whole body function more efficiently. We pay attention to detail and aim to help people to help themselves, not just provide a quick fix.
We consider all aspects of a person’s welfare including physical and mental, exercise and relaxation, nutrition, body-use and posture, effects of physical and emotional stress.
Elizabeth Clayton is a fully qualified, experienced, caring osteopath with a special interest in the very gentle Cranial Osteopathy. NB: Cranial osteopathic techniques are used to treat the whole body, NOT just the head and may also be called cranial-sacral osteopathy.
