Osteopathy

Manual Osteopathy Treatment in Edmonton

Osteopathy is a manual therapy that promotes health and healing throughout the body. Focusing on the joints, muscles, and spine, osteopathy works to relieve pain, tension, and stress. These are the root causes of many conditions and illnesses.

Osteopathic therapy takes a holistic approach to healing. This allows for the treatment of a range of somatic (bodily) issues. 

 

Hands-On Osteopathic Diagnosis and Treatments

Osteopathy treats somatic dysfunctions in the body. It leans toward treating the root causes of chronic pain, inflammation, and illness. It is based on the belief that the body has natural healing defense and healing mechanisms. Promoting the function of these mechanisms can resolve lingering issues and provide preventative care for better overall health.

Osteopathic treatment:

  • Reduces pain
  • Restores a greater range of motion to the body
  • Resolves postural problems
  • Improves body functions such as healing and circulation
  • Resolves digestive issues
  • Lowers stress levels

There are many other positive benefits osteopathy can provide. The treatment plan varies for each client. Every osteopathic treatment starts with a hands-on assessment and whole-body evaluation. Once a therapist has a baseline of symptoms and possible causes, he or she works to improve bodily functioning using the many methods included in osteopathic healing.

 

Osteopathic Services in Edmonton

Osteopathy requires a high level of knowledge in anatomy, physiology, and human health. The goals and techniques are more complex than what is required for therapeutic massage and relaxation massage. That’s why it’s important to find a massage clinic or treatment center with experienced professionals. 

Your Osteopath at Therapeutic Body Concepts will use a range of techniques for your treatment. These may include: 

  • Craniosacral Massage
  • Visceral Manipulation Massage
  • Advanced Myofascial Release 

Your treatment is designed to restore your body’s natural healing processes. It’s always personalized to your specific symptoms, issues, and health concerns.

Craniosacral Massage

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on approach to enhance physical and mental wellbeing and health.  The Cranial-Sacral system is comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. This system extends throughout the body via nerves and connective tissue.
