what is osteopathy?

Osteopaths facilitate ease of movement and work to improve integration between the tissues of the body. They do this largely through helping patients to be free from inappropriate physical restrictions and tension patterns caused by internal and external stressors on the body.

There are many benefits to receiving Osteopathy some of which are;

  • Better postural alignment
  • Sports injuries and rehabilitation
  • Pain reduction from disc or nerve related problems

how it works

Osteopathy looks for underlying causes to muscular problems and seeks to enhance a person’s health and self healing abilities. They ask: “how would a body normally resolve this problem; and what is blocking that from happening in this individual at this time?”
Because osteopaths seek to treat the underlying causes of ill health, diagnosis isn’t just a one-off event, but can be a process that continues during the treatment.

Treatment involves physical manipulation, stretching and massage with the aim of increasing the mobility of joints and relieving muscle tension.

Sessions are highly interactive, and so different practitioners develop their own preferences about which modalities they use more frequently. Paige enjoys using alot of massage techniques along with manipulations to gain the best possible outcome for each client.
