OsteoMAP combines traditional osteopathic manipulation with mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques to help individuals with chronic pain to find their own way of living a more fulfilling life. It is especially helpful to those whose symptoms may be somewhat alleviated, but are likely to persist in some manner, to manage and gain some control over their situation.

By using Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) mindfulness techniques alongside hands-on osteopathic treatments, patients are helped to accept what they cannot control about their current situation, and commit to finding a way to improve their lives in the ways that they can. The treatments can be used as a stepping stone to ensure that improvement continues beyond the treatment room, and into everyday life.
