Whether it’s the tallest building in the world or the tiniest cottage, its ability to remain upright is dependent on its foundation. The same can be said of our bodies, with our muscles and skeletons acting as this foundation.
What is Osteopathy
At Natureco, we provide care for the musculoskeletal system through osteopathy. This is a type of alternative treatment that relies on manually and physically manipulating the muscles, bones, and tissues to provide relief against pain.
Benefits of Osteopathy
There are quite a few benefits of osteopathy, not least of which is its ability to promote improved mobility and balance. The root cause of the pain is being addressed and not just the symptoms.
Through osteopathy, you will be working to remove any stress placed on joints which would, in turn, minimise the overall tension in your whole body. This would leave you feeling more relaxed and ready to live your best life.
Osteopathy is ideal for helping the body regain its balance in a natural way. The non-invasive therapies boost the body’s ability to fight illnesses and maintain its harmony.
Types of Osteopathy
There are four main types of osteopathic treatments, which we will discuss in a bit more detail below:
As the name suggests, this treatment is targeted at the skull area, specifically the cranium. Through gentle massaging, it can relieve stress and evoke a sense of calmness supporting the natural biorhythm of the body. Based on this, it can be a highly beneficial way to soothe babies. Even so, anyone can reap these benefits, young or old.
Stress, whether through work or your personal life, can sometimes manifest itself through tension headaches and painful migraines. By using this type of treatment, you’ll be able to enjoy a clearer mind and focus on the more important things in life.
Our osteopathy clinics in Perth offer treatment services for the whole family.
This therapy focuses on the craniosacral system, which comprises the membranes and bones of the spinal cord and brain. This includes the cranium and the tailbone area or sacrum, hence the name.
By using gentle and non-invasive therapies, like massaging, the central nervous system will have improved functionality, which will affect the well-being of your whole body.
The birth process can be traumatic for both mothers and babies, with the effects of this trauma still evident months after the birth. With your little one crying, you may not know what the issue could be.
When our little ones are in pain, we want to do all that we can to ease their suffering. We may feel that the only way to do this is through pharmaceutical medication, but paediatric osteopathy provides a gentle, safe, and non-invasive alternative.
This type of osteopathy can relieve the pain associated with a variety of body and teething related ailments.
Most babies find the whole treatment process relaxing and soothing, leaving them calm and content.
Of course, we know that our bones, muscles, and tissues are essential for our bodies, but our internal organs or viscera can be viewed as the cogs that keep our machines going.
If one organ is not operating optimally, it has a knock-on effect on the rest of the body, which could result in pain and discomfort in areas seemingly unaffected by the organ in question.
Visceral osteopathy uses non-invasive therapies to support these organs, whether they are suffering from trauma, injury, or emotional stress. In doing so, your general circulation and mobility will be improved which will result in an enhanced functioning of the whole body.
At Natureco, we specialise in a multitude of family osteopathic therapies to treat ailments ranging from arthritis to sports injuries.
