Osteopathy is a manual form of therapy that treats the entire individual.
The focus of Osteopathy is to find the cause of the pathology or pain, and to treat all the systems and theirs 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. Our Osteopaths use a gentle, non-invasive approach which is well suited to all age groups, from young infants to the elderly. Osteopathy strives to restore balance in the body, so that the body can work efficiently and optimally.
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 biomechanical imbalances that may cause dysfunction of the reproductive systems in both men and women.
