Osteopathy is a type of alternative, non-invasive, manual medicine rooted in the principle that well-being is determined by balancing an individual’s body systems and their bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue smoothly working together.
Osteopaths use stretching, physical manipulation and massage, and a physical evaluation, your medical history and info about your lifestyle, diet, and mindset to detect, treat and prevent health issues. It is worth noting that osteopathy is remarkable for prevention and generally improving sleep, energy levels, posture, etc. In the right hands, it does wonders for pregnancy and post-natal issues and discomfort and is more than baby-friendly (fantastic for reflux and colic)!
