Intro to Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a healing therapy which involves the diagnosis and treatment of structural mechanical dysfunctions of the body.

Osteopaths have a highly developed sense of touch. They have an extensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology and can detect very subtle physical imbalances in the body.

Osteopaths do not simply concentrate on treating the problem area, but use manual techniques to balance interrelated systems of the body to improve health and wellbeing.

Many aspects of the patient’s life must be taken into consideration while developing a treatment plan. The symptoms exhibited and how they have developed, the health of all major systems of the body (digestion, lungs, circulation…), previous accidents or injuries and lifestyle (diet, exercise and stress level) are all clues used to determine the cause of the symptoms and why it has developed.

Towards Wellness

Invigorate Your Exercise Routine

Feeling restless? That’s normal this time of year.

Instead of letting that agitation irritate you, harness it and take yourself to the next level.

Walk a little faster, bike uphill instead of flat stretches, go to a dance class, join a softball league, or try a yoga class.

Of course you should still listen to your body and rest when you need to, but don’t use that as an excuse to be lazy
Conquer your fear and step up to the plate first. You might be surprised at what you can accomplish, and how great you feel, when you do.

Stretch of the Month

This exercise stretches the lower back.

1. Get onto all fours. Your arms should be in line with your shoulders and your legs should be in line with your hips. Arch your back and hold this position for a count of 30. Then flatten your back for the count of 30.

2. Your eyes should be looking at the floor and your arms should be kept straight.
