Alison O'Dochartaigh Osteopathy in Cardigan, Haverfordwest & Tanygroes

Welcome to Osteopathy at The Ark, Haverfordwest, Cardigan Natural Healing Centre, and Tanygroes, Cardigan.



For the moment I am continuing to work.

Please cancel the appointment if you feel at all unwell, even if it appears to be just a cold, and follow the NHS and government guidelines.

I won’t be charging for any last minute cancellations - these are very testing times for us all.

Please also don’t come in if you returned from abroad in the last 14 days.

The hygiene procedures I have in place are:

Washing my hands even more regularly than normal!
Changing the pillow cases and fleece blanket for every patient (as normal).
Disinfecting any hard surfaces.
I am happy to wear gloves and a face mask if you would prefer me to.

Please be aware, though, that these procedures may not be enough under the current circumstances.

I will keep you updated of any further changes,



Osteopaths spend at least 4 years training to be able to safely assess your whole body in order to find and treat areas of tension and restriction that may be affecting your body's ability to function at it's best. Osteopathy focuses on the self-healing ability of the body.

Treatment techniques may include massage, mobilisation, manipulation and gentle, subtle cranial osteopathic techniques depending on the individual person.

I have 16 years experience of using gentle osteopathic techniques to treat a broad range of individuals, including pregnant women, children and babies (and horses and dogs).

Osteopathy and Cranial Osteopathy can be beneficial in the treatment of:
- aches & pains.
- headaches.
- difficulties relaxing.
- shoulder & elbow pain arising from associated musculoskeletal conditions of the back & neck.
- joint pains & arthritic pains including hip & knee pain.
- general, acute & chronic backache/pain.
- sciatica.
- prevention of migraine.
- minor sports injuries.
- postural problems caused by driving, work strain or pregnancy.

As well as my BSc (Hons.) Osteopathic Medicine, I have completed seven postgraduate modules with the Sutherland Cranial College of Osteopathy including ones in Paediatric Osteopathy.

I am now working as an osteopath in Haverfordwest as well as in Tanygroes and Cardigan.

If you would like more information on how osteopathy and/or cranial osteopathy may be able to help you please phone or text me on 07789 518356 or e-mail [email protected] or follow me on www.facebook/
