  • Practice movements to address muscular imbalances and improve whole-body alignment so the core can work reflexively
  • Learn how to correct faulty breathing patterns that increase intra-abdominal pressure.

I have bulging discs and my regular treatment here at the Good Health Centre is essential maintenance to keep me fit and mobile.Glyn – Leeds
Osteopathy at the Good Health Centre helps relieve my neck pain and knee pain which has enabled me to carry on with all the sport I play.  Thank you !Alison, Leeds
I first came to see Emily following a car accident with a fractured rib and whip last. Emily has been incredible. Initially I wasn’t sure what osteopathy would achieve, however the results speak for themselves. She has explained everything to me and been very understanding at my frustration of not being able to exercise. She has given expert advice and exercises to do at home. Emily will put you completely at ease and it is almost like an added therapy session being able to talk to her during the treatment. The difference the sessions have made are getting more apparent with each treatment. I am now on the road to recovery and I know this is down to Emily, her practice and advice. From a sceptic to a convert I highly recommend Emily and osteopathy.Rebecca, Leeds
