The Family Practice Bristol is an osteopathy and complementary health centre set up by the Hounsfield family in the heart of Bristol, with a satellite clinic in Southville, Bristol. They successfully combine osteopathy, cranial osteopathy and complementary therapies to give the people of Bristol a wholly individual healthcare and treatment strategy.

Most people come to see osteopaths because they are in physical pain. Backaches, neck pain and sporting injuries are the most common complaints that osteopaths treat.

Please feel free to explore the site and learn a bit more about the family practice, who they are and what they do......
What Is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy uses ‘hands-on’ techniques to influence the way the body works by manipulating the muscles, tendons, joints, connective tissue and ligaments.

The Osteopath will use a process of detailed case history taking, careful observation and examination and highly developed skills of palpation (feeling) to find areas of stress, strain or weakness in the body. After making a diagnosis they will treat specific areas relating to the problem. The techniques employed are safe and gentle.

Osteopathic Practice is statutorily regulated by The General Osteopathic Council (GOsC) (Osteopath’s Act 1993).
