Osteopathy is a form of drug-free non-invasive manual therapy
Osteopathy focuses on total body health by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework, which includes the joints, muscles and spine. Its aim is to positively affect the body’s nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems.
This therapy is a unique holistic (whole body) approach to health care. Osteopaths do not simply concentrate on treating the problem area, but use manual techniques to balance all the systems of the body, to provide overall good health and wellbeing.
What are the benefits of Osteopathy
for our general health?
- Treatment in itself is not ‘preventative’. Osteopaths respect the body’s natural ability as a self-regulating mechanism and only intervene when pain or discomfort is present.
- General improvement in mobility and structural stability of the body.
- Its safe for all age groups. Osteopathy can be utilised as the primary form of health care or in addition to the care provided by a General Practitioner or other health professional.
- All major health funds recognise Osteopathy under their ancillary cover and a referral is not required.
