What is Osteopathy
Osteopathy is a therapy that was founded by Dr A.T. Still in the US in 1871. Osteopathys are able to diagnose the underlying cause of pain and give effective pain relief.
Osteopaths use touch, manipulation, stretching and massage to increase the mobility of tissue such as joints, to relieve muscle tension, to enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and to help your body’s own healing mechanisms.
Osteopathy is a treatment for the entire body and will focus and treating the cause of the problem and not only where the pain is localised. During the treatment all systems of the body will be treated; the musculoskeletal system, cranial sacral system and the visceral system.
Anne will also provide advice on posture and exercise to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms reoccurring. She will listen to you, examine you thoroughly, treat you effectively, advise you and liaise and work with other health care professionals, where necessary. Your care is in her hands.
Cranial Sacral Therapy
Our inherent motions so callled “primary respiration” are modified by many factors such as nutritional and environmental factors such as birth strain, illness and disease, problems of the muscles and joints, posture, emotions, accidents and trauma, especially at the head and pelvis, and stress.
As a response to these factors body tissues often respond by contracting. At times this action can become blocked by the body, limiting normal function which may in turn create restrictions.
By making gentle contact with the body through gently placing the hands on key areas of the body these restrictions may be noted. The therapist will also note the intensity of the flow of the breath of life (vital force) too. The therapist may also note the quality of the tissues which may be inflamed, congested, rigid etc. Through recognising their origin the therapist then works with these tensions, giving the body the opportunity to work through these tensions in its own way. The body always wants to be in optimum health, and given the opportunity it will responds. When tensions are released the body’s inherent energy flow starts to improve as the energy used to hold the tension is then released.
This gentle safe therapy may be beneficial for people of all ages and in any state of health or “un”health: from babies to the elderly, after an accident or trauma, both physical and emotional. By restoring normality to the body the client may feel beneficial changes on all levels in terms of increased energy, well-being and health.
Visceral Osteopathy assists functional and structural imbalances throughout the body including musculoskeletal, vascular, nervous, urogenital, respiratory, digestive and lymphatic dysfunction. It evaluates and treats the dynamics of motion and suspension in relation to organs, membranes, fascia and ligaments.
WHEN VISCERAL TREATMENT
There are a lot of symptoms which are related with the organs and need a visceral treatment.
During a treatment the entire body will be treated, not only the symptom or where the pain is localised. Osteopathy is a treatment where the self healing mechanism will be supported. This will be done through treating the entire body; the musculoskeletal system, cranial sacral system and the visceral system.
