➊ the body is a complete unit (mind, body, spirit)
➋ the body is self-healing and self-regulating
➌ the structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) are interrelated on all levels
➍ rational treatment is based on these principles
Imagine tying a string around your finger. After only a short while, the string begins to affect nerve supply, blood supply and general circulation. If you left that string on for a long period of time, your finger would stop receiving the vital circulation it needs to thrive and the tissue would eventually break down and die.
Osteopathy is all about getting rid of the “strings” in your body. We look to balance restrictions and asymmetries so that every tissue, everywhere, has exactly what it needs to the healthiest it can be.
Initial assessments include a health history intake and a physical assessment, followed by treatment, and are usually about 50 minutes in length. Subsequent treatments are approximately 25 minutes in length. You are not required to undress for Osteopathic sessions, though it is recommended you wear comfortable, non-restrictive clothing, such as yoga pants/shorts and a tank top/t-shirt/sports bra.
All of our Manual Osteopathic Practitioners are registered with OOA/OAO.
Under these associations, they are the most highly recognized by most insurance companies in Ontario, you can check with your private insurance to ensure you have coverage.
