Structural Osteopathy
The structural approach is what most people imagine when they think of osteopathy. Hands-on techniques are used to move joints and massage and stretch muscles to improve the function of the body. Techniques are also used that release joints with a click (HVTs) but not as often as people might think. Certainly if there are techniques which you would rather avoid this is not a problem; osteopaths are trained in a variety of techniques which can achieve the same results.

Cranial Osteopathy
Cranial osteopathy is a refined and subtle form of treatment that encourages the release of stresses and tensions in the body. The name implies that cranial osteopaths only examine and treat the head and, although particular attention is paid to the head, the approach can be used on any area of the body. It is a gentle yet extremely effective approach and may be used in a wide range of conditions for people of all ages, from birth to old age.

Cranial osteopaths are trained to feel a very subtle, rhythmical shape change that is present in all body tissues. This is called Involuntary Motion or the Cranial Rhythm. Tension in the body disrupts the cranial rhythm. This tension can result from stresses and strains your body is under at present or has been in the past. Practitioners compare what your rhythm currently feel like to what they feel could be achieved and use gentle treatment techniques to bring your body towards a more balanced and harmonious state.


The Rehab Plan

We offer a fully rounded 360-degree approach to your well-being using a bio-psycho-social model of health. 

When injuries hang around it can be tricky to get back to feeling good. The fear of pain can stop us from moving, which can lead to compensatory patterns and further discomfort. So how can we start moving towards a more comfortable, confident and pain-free life both physically as well as mentally?

This is where The Rehab Plan steps in, offering you a careful bespoke 8-week programme of osteopathy & private 1-2-1 yoga movement exercise.  There is also an option of incorporating counselling and coaching into your bespoke treatment plan, should we feel that helpful. 

Working with our osteopath Ben you will have the Flow treatment room and studio all to yourself. Your rehab plan will span 2 months, meeting an hour per week. Each hour session will be split between Osteopathic hands-on treatment & yoga-based movement rehabilitation.

You’ll be supported, encouraged and taught movement, which you must practice at home between sessions. You’ll progress at your own pace over 6 weeks and then the last 2 weeks will ease you into a group class setting so that you can build your confidence and begin to feel what works for you independent of your therapist.

The rehab plan will provide you with your own personal toolbox of tips, skills & home exercises to keep you pain-free and moving confidently for the long term.

We suggest you attend wearing sports wear that is comfortable, will not restrict movement and is not too loose fitting. It may be helpful if you are able to undress to aid assessment and treatment, however this is not necessary if you prefer not to.  This will be discussed with you during your appointment to ensure you’re comfortable and informed at all times.


See what our clients are saying about Groombridge Osteopathy
  • I felt utter relief when Ben confirmed he was able to remain open and treating patients throughout Covid and the numerous lockdowns. Having suffered with long-term chronic back pain, from a herniated disc, the pain and discomfort has only worsened during this period due to home-working, stress and poor desk set up. Ben has continued to alleviate the pain and helped me manage it throughout. I’ve felt very safe visiting Flow, the safeguards they have in place are excellent and I am thankful for all they are doing, under difficult circumstances.

  • I have been visiting Ben for Osteopathy support for several months now, firstly in respect of long term back pain and tightness which has subsequently developed into focussed hamstring and glut tightness and soreness. Ben has continued to develop strategies to combine periodic appointments for treatment, with bespoke exercises and stretches to address the pain and build strength around adjoining muscles to help support joint workloads and alleviate pain. Ben has developed and sent to me personalised videos of exercises tailored to my individual circumstances and needs, so as to fully support the self-help element of my rehabilitation. He listens, wants to help me understand issues, and never over sells his services. His attention to detail is first rate and my back pain has gone, my flexibility is improving and my hamstring tightness is now responding to exercise and manipulation. My period of treatment from Ben has all been through Covid lockdown and he has completely embraced safety procedures through this challenging period and I have always felt completely safe through the challenging lockdown periods.
