Focused on You

Diagnosis & Treatment for all the family - Osteopathy can help.


Osteopathy has been available in the UK for over 100 years!  It is one of the most effective and safe treatments for a great number of our health problems.

Osteopaths think of the body as an inter-connected whole  and are interested in the relationship between how well your body could be working to how well it is actually working.

Some say Osteopathy is really just common sense, combining up-to-date knowledge with a holistic view of the body which include  joints, muscles, and spine.

Treatment is “hands on” using gentle stretching, massage, mobilisation and manipulation. This aims to positively affect the body’s nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems helping the body to help itself.

Western Acupuncture

Western Acupuncture is a therapeutic treatment involving the insertion of fine single-use acupuncture needles into the muscles and structures around the joints.

Many people find it a relaxes and soothes; some find relief from pain. Others have found it useful for immediate treatment for Sports Injuries or other acute problems.

However, there are many receptive to this approach and find it helps them manage their pain.

Sports Rehab.

Recovering from a Sports or Work Related injury can be frustrating. Sometimes we need to help the body help itself.

By using the drug-free hands-on approach that focuses on the health of the whole body not just the injured or affected part, you can start on the road to recovery.

Osteopathy can help with initial treatment and advice to longer term management and rehabilitation.

Charles Millward ND DO

Charles practices his Osteopathy on the simple premise that if a person’s body is allowed to work properly, then there are very few conditions which do not respond to Osteopathic treatment. After all, the body wants to heal itself.


Charles is the most established Osteopath in Barry, having been practising here since 2007.

Trusted & Known throughout the community for his honest, friendly approach and affordable fees, Charles has an instinct to look beyond the symptoms of pain and treat the cause.

This requires an excellent understanding of how the body can react to the stresses placed on it and what is required to allow it to heal itself..

Charles uses a wide treatment approach depending on what is appropriate for his patients, their lifestyle, personal goals, and the conditions they present with.

He is also a great advocate for Osteopathy as a regular, preventative treatment, which encourages general and systemic health.


Trained at: British College of Osteopathic Medicine, London

After qualifying, Charles has developed his skills in both Cranial and Classical Osteopathy as he believes the integration of these skills is crucial to deliver the best osteopathic care.

The gentle cranial technique is best for the treatment of acute symptoms, babies, pregnancy and post pregnancy.

A stronger, structural approach benefits sportsmen and those seeking to improve their posture and flexibility. Both approaches can be seen as two ends of a scale, which enables Charles to treat the whole family.

Don’t take out word for it! See what others are saying…

Charles has allowed me to be headache free for quite some time now. I used to have daily nagging headaches that often would turn into a migraine leaving me unable to function. For the longest time, I thought I could just keep taking medication to have the pain subside. Then, my friend referred me to Charles and he was able to pinpoint a misalignment in both my back and neck that was triggering the pain. After the first treatment I felt different & after some more my headaches have not come back. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family.
