Joanne Perkins is a fully qualified registered osteopath, providing professional and effective healthcare in Cardiff and the South Wales area for over ten years.


'My name is Joanne Perkins and I qualified from the British School of Osteopathy in 1988. I worked initially in Norfolk before returning home to Essex to start my own practice. In 1994 I got married and came to live in Cardiff.


After leaving college I completed the following Studies:


• Two Cranial Courses at the British School of Osteopathy
• Certificate in Myo-fascial acupuncture
• Certificate in Treating M.E.
• Certificate in Strain-Counterstrain
• Certificate In Hydrotherm massage
• Certificate in Counselling theory
• Certificate in Counselling practice
• Current First Aid certificate

I teach Advanced Massage and soft-tissue techniques and Differential Diagnosis on the Complimentary Degree Course at UWIC.’

Osteopathy involves the careful and specific application of a highly developed sense of touch in both diagnosis and treatment of mechanical problems affecting any part of the body.

This, combined with a detailed understanding of human anatomy, physiology and pathological processes and a thorough working knowledge of classical clinical examination methods, allows the osteopath to treat patients by releasing and promoting the body's self healing mechanisms.

MY APPROACH


I treat people of all ages, the youngest being two weeks old and the oldest 92!

I use a lot of soft-tissue massage techniques as I believe that the soft tissues have to be loosened up before the joints can move efficiently, and any manipulation that we do is then much easier and more comfortable for the patient.

It is also important as it helps any changes that are produced to be maintained.
