What is Manual Osteopathy?
Manual osteopathy is a gentle, client-centred hands-on therapy suitable for all ages and stages of life. Manual osteopathy approaches the body to determine the primary cause of an issue. It aims to remove strain patterns, enhance the overall function of all body systems, and promote the body’s self-regulating ability.
Treatment typically includes techniques related to myofascial and connective tissue, structural alignment, lymphatics, visceral manipulation, and the craniosacral system. Osteopathy may help a variety of complaints such as chronic pain, postural imbalances, inflammation, digestive disorders, headaches and migraines, and respiratory issues.
All treatments are one hour long. The first appointment includes an extensive health history, a physical assessment, a hands-on treatment, and a discussion about how to move forward with a treatment plan.
Follow-up appointments will continue to assess and treat using Osteopathic manual therapy techniques and principles.
What to Wear
Comfortable and loose-fitting clothes such as t-shirts, shorts or leggings is recommended.
