“Osteopathy is the art of finding the normal in the patient; helping them reach a stage of rest so they can repair their functional reserve. This is achieved by synchronising with the Health instead of finding the disease. The principal of the treatment is to help the patient feel well.”
- Dr. Jennifer Savage.
What can I expect from an Osteo treatment?
Unlike many Osteopathy treatments, you can expect an 1 hour long session at Island Healing. A session involves taking a detailed medical history to formulate an appropriate treatment plan for your condition. Treatments are conducted through clothing. The practitioner may use a range of techniques including soft tissue and gentle manipulation to achieve effective results. Please bring in any medical reports or results, which are relevant to your problem
