Osteopathy emphasizes the interrelationship between
structure and function of the human body.
It follows a belief in the body’s ability to self-heal
Osteopathic practitioners don’t see themselves as healers,
but instead as facilitators to health.
1) CRANIAL OSTEOPATHY –
Addresses the vitality and mobility of the dural membranes
and cerebrospinal fluid which nourish and protect the brain
and spinal cord and influence nutrient exchange at a
cellular level throughout the entire body.
2) MYOFASCIAL and CONNECTIVE tissue therapy –
Treats restrictions of the muscles, fascia and connective tissues,
normalizing these important structural tissues.
3) OSTEO-ARTICULAR CORRECTIONS –
Gentle manipulation of joints which relieve restriction and
restore proper motion.
By positively affecting and balancing the nervous system,
which is in close relationship with all of the other systems
of the body,
manual osteopathy can be very helpful in the resolution
of many conditions.
In addition to techniques for the nervous system,
there are many other tools that manual osteopaths
use to work with the musculoskeletal system,
as well as the visceral system.
The following is a limited list of conditions that may
respond favourably to manual osteopathic treatment:
manual osteopathy can complement other
therapeutic approaches like massage therapy
and acupuncture very well.
In your first session,
you can expect to go over your health history with the
manual osteopath as well as having a discussion about
what your needs are.
An assessment will be done,
which includes observation of posture and tests to
determine where treatment will be most indicated.
With the remaining time,
a treatment will be given.
In subsequent appointments,
there will be a quick assessment (in order to see what
changes have occurred and again, to guide the process),
and more time will be spent on treatment,
which can take place with you sitting, lying face up,
face down, or on your side.
Ideally, for the assessment (and possibly for the treatment) shorts or loose/stretchy pants are worn,
and if you are comfortable,
a sports bra (for women) and no shirt (for men).
Your comfort is very important however,
so if you are not okay with disrobing,
accommodations will be made.
There is a blanket and heating pad handy so you
will not be chilled.
