Richard Hughes – Osteopath

Richard, “I have been a fully qualified registered osteopath since 1995. Prior to this, I was a sports therapist and gym instructor. I have been working in Presteigne for over 20 years.

I am happy to provide structural osteopathy (spinal manipulation) or cranial osteopathy. Osteopathy works on muscle, bones, joints, ligaments and tendons. It can be used to treat trapped nerves, sciatica, back/neck pain, headaches, shoulder problems, knee problems and sports injuries. I am also a Reiki master and sometimes incorporate this into the treatment and occasionally blend reiki and cranial osteopathy together.

What happens during a treatment? I will take a detailed case history and find out as much as possible about your problem. I will then perform an examination of the relevant areas. I will tell you my findings and whether I think osteopathy can help. If not I may suggest you see your GP or another specialist or therapist. I will let you know how many treatment sessions it will take. If you are happy the first treatment is then carried out. It is best to take it easy for a couple of days after a treatment.

Richard is at the Retreat every Wednesday. To book an appointment please contact Richard directly on 07961 352056 or rahughesosteo@gmail.com.
