Osteopathy is the foundation from which all other manual therapy professions were built including Physiotherapy, Massage Therapy, and Chiropractic. In Classical Osteopathy there is consideration for your entire body from your pelvis up to your head and down to your feet.
Osteopathic Manual Practitioners understand that there is a relationship between the bones that support your body and the tissue that surrounds it, including your muscles, ligaments, lymph, organs, nerves and blood vessels. Human bodies are made to move and restriction of motion anywhere in the body has a negative impact on health. Osteopathic treatment helps to balance the body's systems by restoring motion to relieve pain, improve mobility, and stimulate the body's ability to heal itself. It is based on the understanding that when one part doesn't work well, the others have to work harder.
In our approach to treatment, we consider the body, mind and spirit. We are always looking for the cause of problems. We ask "Why" you feel the way you do and avoid merely treating the symptoms.
Who can we help?
Because each treatment is tailored to the needs of the individual, it is great for the whole family. We treat newborns through to the elderly, sports enthusiasts, athletes, people with sedentary jobs, people with physical jobs, chronic and acute conditions, and many more.
