How Does Osteopathy Work?

Osteopaths believe that a patient’s history of illness and trauma are written into the body’s structure.  An Osteopath’s sense of touch is highly developed so as to palpate the patient’s “living anatomy” (i.e. flow of fluids, motion and texture of tissues, and structural make-up).

Osteopaths have found that falls, accidents and even mental or emotional stress often have long lasting repercussions.  Although the pain of an injury disappears, the affected region of the body may become less mobile, causing other parts of the body to compensate, thereby reducing the total system efficiency.

An accumulation of such events over time depletes the body of vitality. Pain or other symptoms may appear years after the original event.  Resolving such dysfunction involves unlocking the effects of accumulated traumas by gentle Osteopathic treatment, and allowing the body to return to a healthier state

The Osteopaths job is to enable the body to heal itself.  An Osteopath promotes movement of bodily fluids to release compressed bones and joints and restore more normal function in tissues.
