Trauma & Stress

Osteopathic treatment is often very relaxing and calming, especially suitable for those suffering from stress. Single or multiple events of emotional or physical injuries, which are traumatic, can seriously impact our lives long term.

Lucy’s special interest is working with patients in a supportive coaching role physically and emotionally within an osteopathic setting.

Lucy has completed courses on ‘The Neurobiological Legacy of Trauma’ run by Janina Fisher PhD to understand the ongoing relationship of trauma and the body.

Further referral for Trauma Counselling or appropriate specialist may be advised.

“Long-lasting responses to trauma result not simply from the experience of fear and helplessness but from how our bodies interpret those experiences.”

HEADACHE & MIGRAINE


Chronic headaches and migraines can be debilitating, impacting our quality of life, lifestyle, mood and daily activities. By taking a detailed headache case history, and assessing individual triggers, including foods, activities, sleep routine, and medication use we can create a holistic management plan to encourage relief from headaches and migraines.

Lucy also uses a questionnaire to assess the impact of headache/migraine and symptoms on daily life. 

Lucy frequently receives referrals from Consultant Neurologists to aid symptoms of headache/migraine. 

Lucy has attended courses and is a member of Osteopaths for Progress in Headache and Migraine (OPHM).

Please Note: Lucy's Chronic Headache and Migraine Clinic only accepts patients who have had symptoms for 6 months or more. New onset headache will require medical screening by a Neurologist prior to Osteopathy treatment.
