If you can relate to any of these conditions, then Aisha can support your journey back to health:

  • Arthritic Pain ... ‘I have pain in my knees, my hips hurt
  • Frozen Shoulder ... ‘I can't brush my hair properly, I can't lift my arm above my head
  • Osteoporosis ... ‘I have been taking steroids for years and now my bones and spine feels weak
  • Muscular Pain ... ‘My back aches, my neck hurts, my arms hurt especially after driving
  • IBS ... ‘I get a bit embarrassed at how my stomach gets so bloated after I’ve eaten and I get winded....’
  • Locked Neck or Stiff Back ... ‘My neck feels like it wants to ‘go’ but it won’t release...
  • Sciatica ... ‘I have pain shooting down the back of my leg which gets worse when I sit for long periods...'

We asked Aisha to describe her approach:

"I am a practitioner who has a desire and passion for what I do. I understand the need for us to take care of ourselves ‘mind, body and soul'. We so often make the mistake of delaying things until they get so bad that they are 10 times worse than when they originally started.

I give advice relevant and best suited for the conditions presented. I treat according to what I feel is appropriate for my patients and most importantly we at The Happiness Centre make sure that our patients are happy and satisfied with the service they receive.

I look forward to seeing you, talking to you, treating you and making sure that you receive the best care from an Osteopath who truly cares about her patients well being."

About Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a system of manual medicine that diagnoses, treats and helps to prevent problems arising from and within the musculo-skeletal system (muscles, bones, joints, organs, connective tissue)

Osteopathy requires a detailed knowledge of anatomy, physiology and methods of clinical investigation on the part of the practitioner.

Osteopaths:

  • Diagnose and treat complaints occurring due to injury, stress, disease and accidents.
  • Aim to enable the musculoskeletal system to work as efficiently as possible by disencumbering it from unnecessary stressors.
  • Harness the body’s innate healing processes in the search for health and normal function.
  • Believe a caring approach and attention to individual needs is paramount.
  • Refer patients on to a registered medical practitioner when appropriate.

Treatment:

  • Is always appropriate to the patient’s age and condition.
  • Is available to all age groups.
  • Is based on an osteopathic diagnosis.
  • Is always carried out with the consent of the patient.
  • Different techniques, eg cranial, soft tissue, structural manipulation are applied as necessary.

T raining:

  • Is a rigorous and demanding course lasting at least 4 years.
  • Osteopaths at The Happiness Centre undertake a programme of continuous professional development.

And for peace of mind:

  • Osteopathy is a safe and natural approach to health care
  • Patients of any age can be treated effectively for a variety of health problems
  • Every year over 6,000,000 patients in Great Britain consult an osteopath
