Osteopathy was developed in the late nineteenth century and has since gained worldwide recognition as a valuable and effective healing system.
Osteopathy is a system of manual medicine that’s primary goal is to restore the body to its optimal health.
It is integral for our everyday health and wellbeing that our body has a mobile and balanced musculoskeletal system. When the joints, bones and muscles are working in tandem and smoothly, this permits the other body systems (such as the nervous system, lymphatics and circulation) to function at their optimal level. It is for this specific reason that osteopaths strive to correct and educate clients about good posture and recurring muscle weakness.
As indicated by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, it is the quickest developing wellbeing profession in Australia.
Osteopathic treatment includes one or a combination of:
Cupping is an ancient therapy that aims to enhance the circulation of blood, enhancing the lymphatic system and relaxing the muscle tissues. Cupping involves heating up a glass cup to depressurise it, before immediately placing it onto the skin.
Dry needling is form of treatment for chronic pain, tight muscles and myofascial trigger points. It involves the insertion of a fine, sterile needle into a tight band of muscle or myofascial trigger point, and aims at releasing the shortened bands of muscle.
