Osteopathy is a drug-free, non-invasive manual therapy that aims to improve health across all body systems by manipulating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework.

A manual osteopath will focus on the joints, muscles, and spine. Treatment aims to positively affect the body's nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems. Manual means that both diagnosis and treatment are carried out with the hands. Manual Osteopathy is a complementary therapy. It is used alongside conventional treatment to improve health. However, manual osteopaths are also qualified practitioners. They are specialized in manual osteopathy.

Osteopathy can provide relief and treatment for a wide range of conditions. These include:

  • osteopathy   TMJ
  • osteopathy   Arthritis
  • osteopathy   Foot, ankle, hip, and knee pain
  • osteopathy   Back pain, neck pain, and sciatica
  • osteopathy   Hand, shoulder, and elbow pain
  • osteopathy   Headaches
  • osteopathy   Tennis and golfer's elbow
  • osteopathy   Postural problems due to pregnancy, sports injury, driving or work strain, or digestive issues

Craniosacral Therapy

CST is a non-invasive, hands-on therapy that aims to enhance the body's own healing capabilities. According to the some respectable institute Craniosacral therapist uses a touch of under 5 grams to "release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system." This light touch is said to affect the pressure and circulation of cerebrospinal fluid, which is the fluid around the brain and spinal cord. This process is thought to relieve pain and dysfunction. Practitioners claim that CST can be carried out as a standalone treatment or used in conjunction with medical or other alternative therapies.

Craniosacral Therapy has been used to treat a variety of conditions, both physical and psychological. These include:

  • osteopathy   Issue in Pregnancy
  • osteopathy   Alzheimer's disease

Visceral Manipulation

Visceral Manipulation (VM) is a gentle manual therapy technique that assesses the relationship between the body’s organs (e.g. bladder, bowel, uterus, etc) and others structures, like muscles, fascia, ligaments and joints. The organs in our body have a certain range of movement that is normal, just like our joints, they need to move within a normal range so we can function. The movement of an organ can be restricted by surgical scars, adhesions, infection, illness, poor posture or traumatic injury. A restriction prevents the “gliding and sliding” action of the organ over other structures within the body, creating an area of fixation. Our body learns to accommodate by moving around this area of tension, and over time this repeated movement leads to chronic irritation and inflammation causing musculoskeletal, neural and visceral dysfunction.

Visceral Manipulation has been effective in the treatment of:

  • osteopathy   Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
  • osteopathy   Chronic Pelvic Pain
