Osteopathy is a hands on approach to healthcare recognising the important link between the structures of your body and the way it works. Osteopaths focus on how your skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves and circulation work together to improve your health and wellbeing.
Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine which recognises the link between the structure of the body and the way it functions. The approach focuses on how the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue and internal organs of the body function as a holistic unit.
Using skilled evaluation, diagnosis and a wide range of manual techniques, Health Balance’s osteopath, Melina Conte, identifies dysfunction in the body. Her treatment then uses a broad range of gentle hands-on techniques – which can include soft tissue stretching, deep tactile pressure and mobilisation or manipulation of joints.
The benefits of osteopathy are many but focus on the general improvement in mobility and structural stability of the body. In turn, other systems of the body such as the circulatory, nervous and lymphatic systems function more effectively.
