Osteopathy is a gentle, hands-on therapy approach
that balances the body’s structure,
restores physiological functioning,
and brings well-being.
The body is all connected and functions as a whole and symptoms often show up in different areas from where the problem is located. Osteopathy is a whole-body approach that addresses all of the related components. Osteopathic treatment gently releases restrictions so your body can function efficiently again.
Imbalances in the body can be caused by postural habits, repetitive activities, stress, sleeping positions, exercise, sports, pregnancies, injuries, accidents, traumas, concussions, illnesses, chronic conditions, surgeries, scar tissue, and dental work, etc.
The goal of osteopathic therapy is to enhance the self-healing abilities of the body. Treatment aims to relieve pain, ease muscle tension, restore movement and joint motion, align posture, release restrictions around organs, balance the nervous system, dissipate stress, revitalize energy, optimize blood, lymphatic and cerebrospinal fluid circulation.
