What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a manual therapy that treats the body's structure in order to affect its function. Its philosophy states that the human body already possesses everything it needs to self-heal.
When the body's structure is correct, meaning that the parts are lined up and everything can move, this self-healing ability happens naturally. However, if there's an issue with the body’s physical structure, such as abnormal twists and turns through the spine or lack of motion, self-healing becomes extremely difficult and sometimes impossible. This is because the proper blood supply, nerve supply, venous drainage, and lymphatic drainage are being obstructed due to abnormal body structure.
Poor body structure can be caused by things like poor posture, injuries, repetitive strain, or poor diet and lifestyle.
What to Expect?
An Osteopathic Manual Therapist will use a variety of gentle manual manipulations in order to adjust the body and restore its natural self-healing ability. An osteopathic treatment addresses all tissues in the body, including bones, muscles, joints, fascia, ligaments, tendons, nerves, blood vessels, lymphatic vessels, and organs.
Osteopathy searches for the root cause of a problem. This cause is going to be different from person to person, which means the treatment will differ from person to person.
Treatments will also be different every time for one particular person. This is because the body's structure changes after every treatment, which guides the osteopathic practitioner's hand down a different path every time.
Osteopathy is great for the following things:
back pain or other body aches and pains
digestive issues and IBS
And so much more!
