Osteopathy is a very gentle and non-invasive treatment that helps
the body to heal itself. It uses precise manual skills to discover
and remove areas of tension or constriction within your body. Once
the ‘block,’ cause of the problem, has been removed the
body can start to heal itself and the pain and discomfort disappear.
This can be done using various, very precise osteopathic techniques
that rely on the anatomical relations of the muscles, ligaments, fascias
and bones within your body.
Osteopathic therapy respects the responses from the body during treatment.
Therefore, it is very safe
and gentle. During an osteopathic treatment nothing
is ever forced, moved or stretched beyond comfort level.
• Osteopathy searches for and treats
the cause of pain and dysfunction of the system.
This is different to many other forms of therapy that focus only on
alleviating the symptoms. By eliminating the cause of the problem
reoccurrence is prevented
• Osteopathic treatment is extremely
efficient, which helps to minimize the number of
treatment visits needed.
• It provides an alternative
to taking pain killers for muscle, joint or body
pain that in many cases create other problems such as upset stomach
and other side effects.
• Osteopathic manual treatment reduces pain and improves function
of the body by decreasing tensions and restrictions in your muscles,
joints and organs. Osteopathy is an holistic
treatment where the patient is assessed and treated as a whole.
• The body has an ability to heal
itself and auto regulate when faced with the process
of illness. Osteopathy assists the body to activate this mechanism,
when the body is not able to do it itself, due to the nature of the
injury or other factors.
