Frequently Asked Questions

Max Secchi B.Sc.(Hons) Ost is a fully qualified, registered osteopath with 25 years of experience. Osteopathic treatment is gentle, non invasive and effective for a variety of conditions.

1. How much is a session of osteopathy ?

Each treatment with the osteopath is £50 and lasts 40 minutes (concessions are available for genuine cases). Perrin Technique treatments are similarly priced.

 2.What should I expect with the osteopath ?

On the first visit to the osteopath a full case history will be taken with the opportunity to ask questions. This followed by an examination. You may be asked to remove some of your clothing (not underwear) and will be taken through some movements and maybe some simple bed side tests (e.g. reflexes, blood pressure etc). This information will be used to produce an osteopathic diagnosis or evaluation and from there a treatment programme. There is usually time for quite a bit of osteopathic treatment on the first visit. More details about our role in this video from the Institute of Osteopathy

This depends on what diagnosis the osteopath gives. Some problems can be dealt with in one or two treatments, whilst some require more time. On average about 4-6 treatments will be needed.
