What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a holistic treatment that concentrates on the relationship between the bones, muscles, ligaments and their connective tissues. By gently manipulating a person’s muscles and joints through stretching and massage, osteopaths can aid in the treatment of conditions such as:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Arm and shoulder problems
- Hip leg and pelvis problems
- Minor sports injuries
Osteopathy is suitable for people of all ages, from the newborn to the elderly, and can treat a wide variety of conditions in addition to those listed above.
Although many people are familiar with the idea of osteopaths using physically vigorous methods to produce ‘cracks’ and ‘pops’ in the back and neck, this is really only a small part of the treatment and may, depending on your situation, be unnecessary. In fact, many of our treatments are very gentle and you may feel as though nothing much is happening beyond the Osteopath’s hands being in contact with your head and other parts of your body.
What is Acupuncture?
As part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Acupuncture takes a holistic approach; treating the person as a whole rather than concentrating on a specific area. TCM teaches that good health is achieved through balance, and acupuncture seeks to restore this balance.
Our good health is a complex and subtle integration of our physical strength, mental clarity, emotional wellbeing and core feelings of security. Any number of factors, both internal and external, can upset that balance and restoring it is the focus of any Acupuncture treatment.
