Osteopathy is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on technique that seeks to release myofascial restrictions and tensions in the body. The therapist gently works with the whole body including the spine and the skull, its cranial sutures, diaphragms and fascia. By using the hands as fine discriminating tools, the osteopath is able to detect disturbances in the soft tissue and organs, and can identify areas of dysfunction and correct them. The main goal of treatment is to positively affect the body’s nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic system, promoting healing and preventing future pain and dysfunction.
Osteopaths specialize in craniosacral and visceral therapy. These modalities are beneficial for all ages from infant to the elderly. Some common conditions treated include: concussion, developmental delays in children, headaches and many neurological conditions and pain syndromes.
