A warm welcome to Rosie Waygood, MSc Ost, M.Ost, a registered Osteopath in Oxford. Rosie offers hands-on treatments to ease the body out of discomfort and tension. Her approach is truly holistic. Her understanding of how the musculoskeletal, visceral and cranial systems connect help her identify causes of blockages in the body.
Rosie specialises in:
Structural osteopathy which focuses on the musculoskeletal system, easing muscle pain, joint problems and tension in the spine
Cranial osteopathy which gently releases tensions around the skull, helping headaches and babies recover from birth trauma
Visceral osteopathy also known as visceral manipulation, which loosens restrictions around the organs in the chest, abdomen and pelvis.
Rosie sees all members of society across the ages. This includes: paediatric osteopathy for babies and children and osteopathy for women's health (menstrual problems, menopause, pregnancy and post-partum recovery).
Rosie's approach is:
Gentle, in-depth and thorough. She provides a warm, calm environment where patients feel supported through testing, diagnosis and treatment.
Osteopathy as a whole:
Osteopathy is about removing physical stressors so the body can move more freely. Osteopaths are skilled, regulated professionals that take a case history, perform tests and then offer holistic treatment using gentle, in-depth release techniques, massage, mobilisation & joint manipulations.

Osteopathic treatment can be particularly helpful during times of transition when the body takes the brunt.
I come from a vibrant family of healers from the fields of Psychotherapy and Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine. My passion for the Osteopathic profession is rooted in its refined hands-on approach, working with the living anatomy: the home of our Physiology and Emotions. In search for the core of Osteopathy, I went on a long journey training across three osteopathic institutions. Learning from different schools allowed me to see the bigger picture. Osteopathy considers the body as an interconnected organism with the nervous system at its core. Osteopathic thinking requires an analysis of how different body systems affect one another. It challenges the practitioner to look for the cause of pain and dysfunction.
Eager to learn both the British and European approaches, I completed a four-year integrated Master's in London. I then went on to do an MSc in Hamburg, which opened the doors for me to study paediatric osteopathy working alongside Sabine Hansen in her busy family practice. We offered treatments to babies and children to ease them out of discomfort and help them in their developmental growth.
Working in practices in London, Hamburg and Belgium gave me great insight into this healing profession. However, what connected the dots for me was joining a third training program alongside Prof. Dr Beuckles. I was given the opportunity to assist as clinical tutor and practitioner on his three year part-time course in Osteopathic Medicine at the University of Witten-Herdecke, Germany. His guidance took me deep into the finesse of touch and sensing. We were led into the art & science of the profession: how to thoroughly test the body, read the spine and peripheral tissues and identify the cause for the patient's symptoms.
I love integrated healing approaches. Osteopaths have a strong background in anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology. And with this knowledge we learn to read the body to identify tension patterns with our hands. The approach I take is truly holistic, looking at how the musculoskeletal, visceral and cranial systems connect to identify causes of blockages in the body. With skilled, therapeutic touch everyone can be helped into a greater sense of freedom and lightness and an enhanced quality of life.
OSTEOPATHY FOR EVERYONE
Osteopathy is safe and effective for people across age and background. It helps relieve long-standing tensions in the body so you can feel more at ease and move more freely. Whether you are recovering from injury, needing joint pain relief or suffering from physical tensions and restrictions, Osteopathy can support your system to come back into balance.
OSTEOPATHY FOR WOMEN'S HEALTH
Osteopathy can support women and gender neutral people who were assigned female at birth through the menstrual cycle and menopause. It can also help the body adapt to pregnancy and recover post-partum. Hands-on treatments involve assessing where the body is holding tension. By releasing these, a sense of freedom and lightness can be felt, supporting free-flowing blood and energy circulation.
OSTEOPATHY FOR CHILDREN & BABIES
Osteopathic treatments can help little ones recover from birth trauma. This can include releasing compressions around the head through cranial osteopathy and loosening tensions in the neck, ribs and digestive system. Hands-on treatment can help children feel understood, ease their discomforts and help them through growth spurts where the body often takes the brunt - in babyhood, childhood as well as in teenage years.
