Osteopathy is a therapeutic technique founded on the belief that the body has a great capacity for healing itself. Osteopaths take a very holistic approach to the healing of the body.
How it works

Osteopathy treats this connection in a holistic manner, focusing on how the function of the joints and muscles can have a positive or negative impact on the function of internal organs and blood circulation, and on the entire body as a whole.
Not all physical therapy provided by the Glen Back Care and Sports Therapy requires a dedicated routine of corrective exercise. Sometimes even something as simple as a high quality massage session can do wonders to ease your stiffness, aches and pains, or stress and tension levels.
How it works
An effective massage session will lead to increased blood flow to the area, resulting in reduction in muscle tension, and restoration of normal muscle function. It can also help to reduce feelings of both anxiety and depression.
Massage can reduce the build-up of a stress hormone known as cortisol, which helps to lower blood pressure and lift the spirits. It can also boost the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, which help fight off depression.
