Osteopathy is a unique holistic (whole body) approach to health care. It is a non-invasive manual medicine that focusses on total body health by treating, strengthening and rebalancing the musculoskeletal framework, which includes the joints, muscles and spine. Osteopathy aims to restore the body's nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems.
Felicity will use manual techniques to correct and balance all the systems of the body so as to provide and boost overall good health, circulation and wellbeing. A broad range of gentle hands-on techniques include:
Soft tissue stretching
Deep tactile pressure
Mobilisation of joints or muscles
Osteopathy complements traditional medicine. For example, people who suffer from arthritis are often prescribed medication by their GP. In addition, Osteopathy can ease the pain caused by joint and muscle stiffness, by improving joint mobility and the flow of blood to the joints as well as giving good advice to arthritis sufferers on how to prevent injury to themselves.
Osteopathy is widely used and is safe for:
Osteopathy respects the body's natural ability to heal itself. Benefits include overall improvement in mobility and structural stability of the body. In turn, other systems of the body such as the circulatory, nervous and lymphatic systems function more effectively and in harmony. This coupled with good nutrition and exercise prescription can enhance a patient's health and wellbeing and often leads to a positive approach to one taking responsibility for one's own health.
Prevention is better than cure. Preventing injuries means less time off work and therefore more time keeping active and enjoying the benefits of general good health.
