What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy uses very precise, gentle manipulative techniques to treat the restrictions in tissues which prevent the various parts of the body from fulfilling their natural functions. The objective of the practice of Osteopathy is to restore mobility to the different systems of the body (musculo-skeletal, circulatory, digestive, pulmonary and nervous systems) thus improving the regulation and interactions of these systems.
Osteopathy was established in Canada in 1981.
Who can benefit from Osteopathy?
Individuals of any age with complaints of pain, weakness, stiffness or tightness may benefit from Osteopathy treatment. Symptoms may be a result of injury, accident, repetitive strains, underuse or misuse, degenerative or arthritic changes, pregnancy and childbirth or following surgery or dental work.
