Osteopathy for you

computer-1185637_960_720Throughout our lives, our body is in movement and adapts to the daily life.  Movement is life. The posture that we adapt in our daily life (at work, at home, doing sports, carrying heavy objects) and certain traumas and emotions (falls, accidents, stress) can modify the healthy function of our body and create tension and blockages.  Osteopathy works on restoring the body’s optimum health by concentrating on loss of mobility and tension on all levels of structure of the human body.  Dysfunctions are corrected by relaxing joints, muscle, ligaments, tendons, viscera and tissue tension helping the body to correct itself through homeostasis.  Gently and painless osteopathic techniques are used to reduce pain, restore mobility and improve general health.  The techniques used will depend on the patient’s condition, the type of problem and tissue reactivity.
