Qualified Registered & Experienced
– Constant Headaches or Migraines?
– Neck and Shoulder pain?
– Pain behind the Eye or Temples?
Most of the common headaches do not arise from the head, but typically from the neck. These headaches can include neck pain and shoulder pain. Some people may feel pain into a shoulder blade. For this reason doctors call this “cervicogenic headaches” and this is one of our flag-ship treatments at the Living Centre Clinic. Our massage and osteopathy treatments are effective in combating common and recurring headaches.
Causes of Face Pain
Headaches arising from the head itself, (ie a cranial strain for example) can include eye pain, ear pain, tooth pain, sinus pain as well as tingling on the face, face pain, jaw pain or twitching facial muscles such as an eye or lip. Symptoms may also include unexplained dizziness, foggy head or tension headaches. Its always worth a visit to discover if your symptoms can be helped with our ‘hands on’ treatments and our expert advice.
Causes of Tension Headache
The majority of these ‘mechanical headaches’ are usually due to joint strain or muscle strain. This can arise from poor posture, excessive screen time, tiredness, lack of fitness as well injuries to the neck such as whiplash, ‘sleeping funny’, coughing, sneezing etc. Of course, headaches can also be the sign of something sinister which is why we refer for x-rays and scans when needed.
For all these reasons seeking the help of an experienced clinician is important. At the Living Centre Clinic in Raynes Park, Wimbledon, we have a long history of successful neck and headache treatment. Our treatments are effective, producing express relief and together with our pain-prevention philosophy, we can help prevent pain recurring.

* Generally we avoid harsh manipulation such as “bone cracking” unless specifically requested, ie for a sports injury treatment etc.
Headache and Migraine Prevention
Osteopathic manipulation has a great reputation, proven in long term tension headaches and in migraine prevention. Gentle soft-tissue calming is the preferred choice for headache treatment.
Spinal treatment and manipulation at the Living Centre Clinic is very gentle. We combine the gentle cranial massage with soft massage of the head, neck and shoulder to calm raging, throbbing and sensitive tissues. Treatments can be combined with *spinal joint manipulation, in cases of stubborn ‘stuck’ joints, to bring virtual instant results.
*Note about spinal joint manipulation. It is known that excessive ‘bone cracking’ treatment can lead to hypermobile joints, which can cause muscles to tighten up around it to stabilise it. This can lead to more muscle tone can cause neck spams to develop, adding to the picture of tension. For this reason, the Living Centre Clinic osteopath’s in Wimbledon operate a policy of minimal joint manipulation. We try to massage and stretch out tight tissues to produce a lasting benefit you can reply on.
