Osteopathy focuses on the whole body; nervous system, visceral system, structral system and how they influences movement, posture, digestion and stress. The central nervous system is the master system of the body and through it we live our lives. Its ability to function optionally reflects our ability to express our full potential.
Stress and the load of life burdens our systems and reduces resiliency, adaptability and vitality. Restoring function and improving movement stimulates the recovery process and allowing the body to heal itself. Thus freeing the burden and adding ease into the system.
During your assessment with one of our Manual Osteopaths, they will assess how your body is moving and evaluate your nervous system function thoroughly. They will go through a detail history thus offering insight to various presenting problems/situations ranging form car accidents, lifting or falling accidents, physical/emotional stress, pregnancy, childhood development, digestive health and overall general wellness. They will then treat what is present, create a plan if needed and give you homework of stretching and strengthing if needed.
