Osteopathy is a gentle, non-invasive manual therapy that views and treats the body as a whole. The Osteopathic philosophy is that the whole body must function together for optimal health. If one area of the body is compromised, other parts will adapt and compensate for this, which can eventually lead to inflammation, pain and other health conditions.

The goal of an Osteopathic treatment is not to simply address the, “problem area”, but to treat and balance all of the systems of the body. The classical osteopathic treatment (which has been around since the 1870s), aims to facilitate the body’s own innate ability to self-heal and self-regulate.

What’s the appointment like?

When you begin your journey with Osteopathy, you’ll schedule an initial assessment visit. Dryden or Alex will take the time to chat with you, review your health history, identify any concerns you have and determine a treatment plan that’s tailored specifically to you. 
You should wear clothing that you can move freely in, like shorts and t-shirt or leggings/sweatpants and a t-shirt. Your first appointment is 45-60 minutes. Subsequent appointments are 20-30 minutes.

Should I see an Osteopath?

Osteopaths treat people of all ages – from newborn to the golden years. We often have babies in the clinic after treating mom throughout pregnancy. Being born is not easy! (Yes – osteopathy is safe and fantastic to support your changing body throughout pregnancy!) We have clients into their 90s that feel better in their bodies after a visit to see Alex or Dryen.

You don’t need to have an injury to see an Osteopath. They focus on alignment and your overall wellbeing as well. Our bodies are fantastic at hiding things from us, and everyone can benefit from regular maintenance visits to ensure everything is fine tuned. Prevention, prevention, prevention!
