Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a system of healing and treatment consisting mainly of massage and manipulation.

      

How It Works!

Osteopathy offers an approach to all the structural and mechanical problems of the body associated with the muscular-skeletal system. Back and neck problems are most common, often caused by faulty posture and strains from overwork. Deep massage can relieve these painful conditions and also alleviate pains during pregnancy and pains caused by the change in the spine’s alignment.

Emotional, mental and physical systems are intimately linked therefore, stress and emotional worries can be manifested in the form of tension in the body’s structure. Releasing this tension through therapeutic massage can lead to a calmer state of mind and a greater sense of physical well being.

What are the benefits?

The use of manipulative therapy to ease the movement of stiff or painful joints similarly brings a renewed sense of freedom. This is especially true of chronic conditions such as arthritis. In addition to relieving pain and increasing mobility, osteopathic massage techniques stimulate blood flow and increase lymphatic drainage.
