Osteopathy is a philosophy and an alternative medical practice which emphasizes the interrelationship between structure and function of the body and recognizes the body's ability to heal itself; it is the role of the osteopath to facilitate that process, principally by the practice of manual and manipulative therapy and also to release tension from a layer called fascia that is around the muscles and that stores a lot of tension and physical and emotional trauma.
Massage therapy is the manipulating of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques, to enhance function, aid in the healing process, decrease muscle reflex activity, inhibits motor-neuron excitability and promote relaxation and well-being.
Physiotherapy is a health care profession primarily concerned with the remediation of impairments and disabilities and lack of mobility, functional ability, quality of life and movement potential through examination, evaluation, diagnosis and physical intervention thru manual tecniques.
We are here to help you achieve balance and well being!
