Osteopathy for the whole family!

Osteopathy is a system of holistic healthcare that focuses on restoring and maintaining the harmonious function of all elements of the body. It is necessary for every cell in the body to receive adequate nutrition and drain all waste products well. The body uses blood and lymph channels in order to achieve this complex supply chain. Muscles and bones can be helping or hindering in this process. When the musculo skeletal aspects of the body are well aligned, it tends to function very well.

Sometimes this alignment can be disturbed due to accidents, illness, bad posture or habits. Osteopaths aim to find out which parts of the body may be disturbed and help with gentle manual techniques to restore optimal alignment and therefore enable the body to function optimally.

 

At Family Osteopathy we specialise in very gentle techniques. We have all trained for many years to develop a fine sense of touch (palpation) and can feel with minimal pressure for imbalances in the tissues of the body.

Osteopathy focuses on restoring and maintaining the body’s ability to function harmoniously as a complete unit.  Every cell in the body must receive adequate nutrition and be able to drain away waste products; the body uses its blood and lymph channels to achieve this complex supply chain. Muscles and bones can hinder as well as help in this process, but when the body’s muscles and bones are well aligned the body functions in its normal natural state.

 

Sometimes the body can be misaligned or disturbed for a variety of reasons; the most common causes being due to an accident, ill-health, bad posture or through habit. Osteopaths aim to find out which parts of the body may be disturbed and help with gentle manual techniques to restore alignment and enable the body to function optimally.

 

 

At Family Osteopathy we specialise in these very gentle techniques. Our practitioners have all trained for many years to develop a precise sense of touch (called palpation) and can feel with minimal pressure any imbalances in the tissues of the body (both at skin level as well as much deeper at the level of an organ.)

When you arrive for your first osteopathic consultation, we will take time and take a complete case history, including previous injuries or accidents and previous medical treatments. It is important for us to understand all the influences your body has been under, to be able to treat you holistically.

We will then examine you and discuss with you how we may be able to help or if we would recommend any other investigation or therapy for you to regain optimum health. We will then offer you osteopathic treatment.
