Osteopathy

Osteopathy at the Sunflower Centre in Brockley, SE4
There has been a core of Registered Osteopaths working from this lovely practice since the early 1990s; the Sunflower Centre was set up as a multi-disciplinary complementary health centre in 2006 and has continued to grow in reputation and scope since that time.  Many people we treat live within walking distance, however we serve a much wider community than Brockley, with people coming from near the river Thames, down to Bromley, Croydon, across to Brixton and including Blackheath (SE3) and Greenwich (SE10).

What do Osteopaths do?
The underlying basis of the work is to support health.  Osteopaths use their skills of observation and a refined sense of trained touch to sense imbalances in the structure and function of the body.  We then employ a range of therapeutic interventions that make changes by utilising the inherent capacity of the body to heal and repair itself. 

Training, Experience, Patient Care and Convenience
The General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) is the statutory body that regulates Osteopathy under the Osteopaths Act 1993. All practicing osteopaths have undergone a four year full time training covering anatomy, physiology, pathology, clinical skills and tests and osteopathic technique.  We also undergo a long period of supervised clinical hours before graduating.  As such we can be considered to be positioned within the Primary Care Field. 

The four Sunflower Centre osteopaths have over 70 years' experience between them.

Patient care is at the heart of what we do and how we think.

We have free parking on the doorstep and are close to several bus routes.  With Brockley, Crofton Park, Ladywell and St Johns stations nearby for overground and British Rail, the practice is convenient for those living across South East London and North Kent.
