Why consult an osteopath?

For your health issues or as a simple preventive measure, the osteopath will assess your entire body and note restrictions in movement in the following areas: musculoskeletal, visceral and cranial.

The osteopath will first look for blockages and tensions throughout your body. Then, will restore the balance of your many systems, encouraging harmony throughout.

Keeping in mind that the source of the problem is not always where the pain is. The osteopath helps to reduce the pain, therefore decreasing the intensity, frequency and duration. Osteopathy encourages a return to balance and self-healing of the body.

Keep your eyes open for any small signs that may indicate a problem; a baby that turns his head more often to one side, sleep that is agitated, cries and pulling of the ears or holding his head etc.
