Osteopathy  

Osteopathy treatment is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on, therapy that works to achieve pain-free movement and aims to restore health and balance across all body systems. A manual Osteopath utilizes their knowledge and skills to assess and treat restrictions within the musculoskeletal framework to relieve pain and restore joint movement. Osteopathic philosophy emphasizes that the structure and function of the body are interconnected and recognize that even the smallest, localized deviations within the body are obstacles to the healthy functioning of the body as a whole.

The focus of manual osteopathic treatment is on mobilizing and strengthening the bones, muscles, fascia and joints using very particular hands on techniques and specialized tools that treat specific parts of the human body. Treatment aims to positively affect the body’s nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems with the ultimate goal of restoring function and eliminating pain.

Manual osteopaths are experts at manipulating and palpating the musculoskeletal framework in a manner that promotes full body restoration and self healing. Osteopaths utilize many technical, hands-on skills such as articular mobilization, cranial osteopathy (CST), muscle energy techniques (MET), myofascial release, visceral manipulation, soft-tissue techniques, mobile cupping therapy and Gua Sha to assess, treat and restore balance to all body systems.

Some of the benefits of osteopathic treatment include:
