Osteopathy is a safe and natural form of manual therapy that has been around for more than a century. It is based on the principle that the body has a virtually limitless capacity to heal itself when it is functioning optimally.
The Goals of Osteopath Therapy
The goal of the osteopath is to find and remove restrictions and barriers to this healing process through gentle pressures and mobilizations. Due to this gentle approach, infants and pregnant women can be safely treated as well. An osteopathic assessment will view the whole body in its entirety, not just individual parts, therefore a wide variety of conditions can be treated including:
migraines, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel, carpal tunnel syndrome, and sciatica/back pain to name a few.
It is worthwhile to note, that osteopathic treatments are covered by “Extended health insurance” policies at your place of employment.
