Osteopathy is a manual form of therapy including cranio-sacral therapy that treats the entire individual including children from newborn through preschool, school ages, adolescents, athletes and adults.

The focus of Osteopathy is to find the cause of the pathology or pain, and to treat all the systems and their connections in the body. Osteopathy restores normal structure and movement, and facilitates the body to return to a state of health.  

Osteopaths use palpation and manipulative techniques to restore balance to muscles, joints, nerves, connective tissue, and internal organs. 

Fertility

Osteopathy is a gentle and safe therapy that can help prepare the body for an optimal environment for conceiving.  There are many reasons why couples may experience difficulty conceiving.  If medical reasons have been excluded, functional disorders can compromise fecundation or the “nesting” of the embryo.  Osteopathy seeks to restore any structural or bio-mechanical imbalances that may cause dysfunction of the reproductive systems in both men and women.   

Pregnancy and Post Pregnancy Treatment

Most pregnancy changes women experience are experienced in a very positive manner. However, some of those changes may present as a bit of a challenge on the body.  Osteopathic treatments can help the body to accommodate the transformations it is going through.  Osteopathy can treat low back pain, neck pain, morning sickness, heartburn, constipation, too frequent urination, sciatica, and circulatory issues. 

Infants and Children

Infants: During his/her life inside the womb and during the birth process, babies may experience difficulties that may affect his/her quality of life.  They may have experienced prolonged compressed positions in the pelvis, the cord around their neck, or distress during delivery as a result of forceps, venteuse, or caesarian procedures.

Osteopathy can help when a baby presents with:

  • Colic, constipation, Regurgitation, latching/feeding difficulties, mouth breathing
  • Torticollis, plagiocephaly, limited neck mobility
  • Sleeping disorders, confusing day and night sleeping
  • Ear, throat, and  nose concerns such as otitis/ ear infections

By gentle and thorough assessment and manual treatment, osteopathy in most cases can help alleviate those symptoms. 

Children: Osteopathy also takes care of other developmental stages in a child’s life as they grow up to be adolescents and adults.  These include:

  • dental-orthodental procedures (braces, etc.)
