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.
TREATMENT & THERAPY
The Tools You Need
Structural and Biodynamic osteopathic techniques form our integrated approach in treating patients. We take a whole person perspective when addressing signs of imbalance and restriction, working from their origins to their symptoms. A major goal of Osteopathy is to assist the inherent healing forces of your body to be unhindered in restoring health. This is fundamental to ensuring our patients’ long-term health and wellness.
