OsteoLife - Osteopathy Treatments


Our approach to osteopathy

Osteopathy is a hands-on or manipulative style of mainstream medicine to treat the bodys muscular-skeletal systems. Osteopathy can be used to evaluate and assist the diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic conditions and aliments.

The use of palpation (touch) in osteopathy reveals inherent muscular-skeletal limitations within a patient. It is particularly effective for problems resulting from traumas, illness or surgery. The finely-tuned osteopathic feel is important for developing the right patient treatments for specific injuries or conditions.

Treating the range of ailments


Cranial Osteopathy is a gentle and soft, but extremely effective, form of Osteopathic treatment which subtlety promotes the release of stresses and tensions throughout the entire body. Cranial Osteopathy can be used for a wide range of conditions and aliments, across every part of the body. Cranial osteopathy has proven to be a very effective treatment for adults, children and infants alike.

Structural Osteopathy primarily focuses on restoring a patients normal range-of-movement and can be applied to the whole muscular-skeletal system. Structural osteopathy is particularly useful when working on specific joint manipulation and muscle energy.
