We offer a collaborative and unique whole body-mind healing course of treatment which combines Mindfulness for Pain Reduction and Management, specialist Osteopathic techniques and Pilates/Somatics to help you move on from a life of physical, mental or emotional pain.
Our Centre is unique in its approach and is the first Centre in the UK to specialise osteopathically on a single specialist technique known as Specific Adjustment Technique (SAT). Our mission is to raise awareness of the health improvements it can offer when combined with the related healing modalities of Mindfulness and Pilates/Somatics.
We treat patients of all ages with a wide variety of health complaints and conditions – there are no limits to the conditions for which our collaborative approach is effective – but those who suffer from the following conditions and have tried many other treatments and therapies without any long term relief or success, are likely to receive the greatest improvements in their health:
- Chronic Pain/Tension/Fatigue
- Neck and Back Pain (including specific cervical spine conditions)
- Whiplash Injuries
- Specific Spinal and Mobility problems
- Asthma and other Allergies
- IBS and other Digestive/Urinary problems
- Various Autoimmune Disorders
- Diabetes and related health conditions
- Ongoing and recurring health ‘niggles’
At the core of our Centre is the belief that many health problems originate back at the point of birth itself and/or as a result of various physical or emotional traumas we have endured throughout our life. We therefore have a strong focus in the identification and prevention of problems in babies (as close to birth as possible). Our Baby and Child Clinic will be reopening in 2021.
Unfortunately, the connection between the conditions which surrounded our own birth and subsequent accidents or traumas – of both a mental and physical nature – and our health as we progress through adulthood is usually not made. This is due mainly to the time elapsing between the incident and the manifestation of health problems as well as a reluctance to regard health holistically and as a collaboration between mind and body rather than the two as separate entities.
There are many people living their life oblivious to the fact that they have an upper cervical injury to their spine (you cannot feel the injury as such and it is not obvious to the untrained eye) and that it may be the root cause to their deteriorating health. It is our aim to raise awareness of this concept and to help as many people as possible on their journey to recovery from a life of ill health and chronic pain.
Please read our Symptomology if you are considering whether our treatment is relevant for your health condition. The most common symptoms of an upper cervical spine injury are listed here.

The Treatment we offer at our Centre will resolve the fundamental root cause of your deteriorating health and begin to move your body and mind into a position where you can begin to heal all by yourself. Our Treatment is the catalyst to healing; to set you on a journey towards recovering your former health.

“The Highland Chronic Pain and Whiplash Centre is a most exciting venture, which when combined with our further training of new SAT practitioners, we hope will be just one of many throughout the UK and Europe over the coming years; becoming a major contribution to human health and suffering.” – Clifford Conway, Co Founder
