What is Osteopathy

Osteopathy is special. It is an established and recognised system of diagnosis and treatment that works with the structural integrity of the body through the function of joints, muscles and ligaments.

Osteopathy uses many of the diagnostic procedures involved in conventional medical assessment and diagnosis as well as assessing patients biomechanically, functionally and posturally. Treatment is aimed at improving mobility and/or reducing inflammation and pain by using gentle osteopathic techniques.

Treatment is aimed at improving mobility and/or reducing inflammation and pain by using gentle manual osteopathic techniques on joints, muscles and ligaments.

Osteopathy is suitable for work related low back or neck pain or sporting injury and it can help with acute conditions, such as sudden sharp back pain, or chronic conditions. It may also be beneficial for painful ankles, knees, shoulders and elbows. There are other conditions which may benefit; Osteopathy may be able to provide relief for the muscular tension symptoms associated with asthma. An osteopath may assess the role of an individuals’ diet in their health, or use visceral or cranial osteopathy. As the underlying causes of pain are addressed further improvements may be obtained with postural advice and with an exercise program if required. Age is no barrier to osteopathic treatment as each patient is assessed individually. Osteopathic treatment may reduce pain and increase mobility.

Benefits; You may have reduced levels of pain and increased mobility.

Osteopathy is suitable for patients of all ages. Call now to talk to Julian or Yan Kei.


Cranial Osteopathy

Cranial osteopathy is a great method of treatment for babies, children, and adults including pregnant mums. Cranial osteopathy is a refined and subtle type of osteopathic treatment.

Cranial osteopathy is one of the tools of the osteopath. Cranial osteopathy is an osteopathic treatment based on anatomy and physiology. Cranial osteopaths are trained to feel a very subtle, rhythmical shape change that is present in all body tissues. This is called “Involuntary Motion” or the “Cranial Rhythm”.

Babies and Children

When birth is complicated by being unduly slow or fast, or when intervention such as forceps or ventouse or C-section is used, there may be musculo-skeletal effects such as an infant’s neck muscles may be strained. Treatment from an osteopath my help to improve the musculo-skeletal effects of birth strain on a baby. Please review Julian’s Continual Professional Development page for an up-to-date record of his ongoing training.

As children grow older, growth stresses, strains resulting from difficult births, minor trauma (such as falling off a bed or a swing) or sporting injuries may become apparent. Children may benefit from an assessment of their musculo-skeletal system by an osteopath.

Janelle Camuglia is our remedial massage therapist. She works both sports massage and deep tissue techniques where necessary and can bring relief to the aches and pains of daily life and is wonderful for relieving neck and shoulder pain. Remedial massage is focused upon both consultation and treatment. A thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology means that the source of pain can be pin pointed and then treated appropriately. In the sports world it is used proactively to prevent injury.

As a massage therapist she works slowly and deeply to melt chronic muscular tension. She creates a safe, nurturing and respectful space which facilitates expressing and releasing the emotional tensions that are often at the source of physical tension.

Key benefits of Remedial Massage include: the stimulation to the blood supply allowing toxins in the muscles to be removed; the calming of the peripheral nervous system to ease pain and discomfort; and the toning and relaxing of muscles to improve joint mobility. An improvement to the health of the cells, the repairing of tissues, and the easing of stiffness and tension can also be experienced through therapeutic relaxation.
Sports and remedial massage therapy combines general and deep tissue manipulation with various forms of stretching techniques to improve muscle health and performance. The treatment is direct and results are experienced quite quickly. It is a very safe, non invasive therapy.

As oil is used, it is necessary for the patient to change to their underwear for the treatment.

Pregnancy Massage

Janellle has undergone training for massaging pregnant women, and is wonderful at easing the aches and pains of your body changing in those final months as you approach the birth,

Pregnancy massage is an integrated therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the special needs of the mother to be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of the childbearing experience. During pregnancy, labour and post partum, specific techniques can reduce discomforts and enhance the physiological and emotional well being of both mother and baby. Studies have demonstrated that massage reduces stress hormones in the body. A pregnant woman’s body is challenged changed and stressed in many different ways. Massage gives special attention to the mother to be, which in turn nurtures the new life that grows within her.

As you body transforms, you must adjust to the increasing weight, shifting posture, fluctuating hormone levels and many other dramatic changes of the childbearing experience.
Massage enhances pregnant, labouring and postpartum women’s comfort, health and enjoyment of their pregnancies.
It is also a benefit in the fourth trimester, in the months after the birth, as the woman’s body returns to normal.
