HELPING PEOPLE TO RELAX, HEAL AND REHABILITATE THEIR LIVES AND BODIES
Osteopathy is most commonly associated with musculoskeletal medicine - biomechanical back and neck pain, sport or work injuries, or other joint or muscle disorders. However, as Osteopathy is an Integrative holistic form of healthcare; which helps individuals improve and/or restore health and well being, there are many other reasons you want to visit an osteopath.
Some may come for rehabilitation, or injury management, assistance with general health problems or medical conditions, or wellness more generally.
Osteopathic Treatment and it's benefits
Treatment is designed to release pain, restrictions and to improve function; impacting positively the nervous, neuroendocrine, circulatory, digestive, lymphatic, fascia and muscle-skeletal systems; improving body function and overall health.
On each session I work to restore your body to a state of balance, where possible without the use of drugs or surgery. I use sensitive touch, physical manipulation, mobilization, stimulation, stretching and massage to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body’s own healing mechanisms.
Osteopaths use a variety of techniques, and; these are applied according to what the patient needs:
Spine and Joint manipulation
Neuromuscular and muscle energy
Functional therapy and Psychosomatic release
Who is it for?
Osteopathic patients include people of any age, from babies through to the elderly and treatment is helpful for people in any situation - athletes and sport people, student, office worker, manual labourer, pregnant woman, stay at home parent, retiree and anything in between.
UNREGISTERED OSTEOPATHIC PRACTICE IS ILLEGAL
The title 'Osteopath' is protected by law. It is against the law for anyone to call themselves an osteopath unless they obtained the actual degree (Master, C.O. or D.O.) by the proper School and are registered by their respective federal Osteopathic Council.
