WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?
Osteopathy is a client-centred discipline that is based on understanding the relationship between structure and function in order to enhance the body’s inherent ability to heal. It relies on skilled manual therapeutic techniques to assess and treat a person, assisting the intrinsic self-healing properties of the body. The development of these skills comes with time and dedication, and the deep well of lived experience and the Inner Journey.
TREATMENT & THERAPY
The Tools You Need
Anatomic & Physiologic osteopathic models and the supportive elements of Somatic Experiencing form our integrated approach in meeting patients "where they are". We take a whole person perspective when addressing signs of imbalance and restriction, and we work in the moment to nurture regulation, at a pace informed by the body. A major concept of Osteopathy is to assist the inherent healing forces within the body in order to restore health. This is fundamental to ensuring our patients’ long-term health and wellness.
ASSESSMENT & DIAGNOSIS
What to Expect
At Lighthouse Osteopathy, we listen to your story and take a detailed history. We complete a thorough assessment and create an individualized treatment plan to achieve the therapeutic goals we set together. We will attend to the whole patient drawing from established and sound Osteopathic and other healing modality models.
