Osteopathy and Adults

Life is a roller coster of events - highs, lows, physical traumas, emotions turmoil, knocks and bumps and yet our body still manages to find a way to function. It is really an amazing system, housing everything important and necessary for survival, good health and healing. 

With every bump, knock or trauma our body must try harder to stay well and keep functioning at its best. With years of insults and injuries there comes a time when our body needs help. You'll know this, that achey neck, sore lower back that is the body telling you something isn't right. Osteopathy, the application of hands on treatment can aid in restoring balance in your body. We approach the body holistically, taking into consideration all systems of the body and their influence on the entire organism and function of the whole.

 

While the aim of the treatment is to allieviate you of your presenting complaint it can often be surprising what other aspects of function are held up because of a seemingly small and insignificant trauma in a seemingly unrelated site. 

A treatment consists of a thorough case history, examination and treatment, you are fully clothed and positioning of treatment depends on your comfort levels.
