Osteopathy is a safe and effective patient centred manual therapy which works in combination with the individuals own homeostatic mechanisms to help restore balance and optimal health. It works with the understanding that the way the body is able to function is inseparable from the way it is structured. All aspects of the body must work together to maintain health and the osteopathic approach is able to address the person as a whole to improve not only structure and therefore function but overall health and wellbeing. Osteopathic Practitioners support the body’s ability to restore and maintain health by using skilled palpation and manual techniques to influence muscles, joints, nerves, connective tissue, circulation and internal organs. Osteopathic Practitioners treat people of all ages, from newborns to seniors. If you are experiencing pain or dysfunction, or want to take preventative measures to improve your health, Osteopathy can help.

Osteopathic Practitioners can help if you are experiencing problems such as:
- Neck and back pain and tension
- Headaches
- Sleep or energy issues
- Sports injuries
- Concussion
- Injuries from car accidents
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Joint or muscle pain
- Digestive, respiratory or menstrual problems
- Pre and post-natal support
- Jaw dysfunction

Osteopathy is drug and surgery free. It optimizes the body’s ability to heal itself and achieve balance.

Benefits include:
- Pain relief
- Increased range of motion
- Increased circulation
- Trauma healing
- Hormonal balance
- Decreased stress and tension
- Improved posture

Our approach is unique because we combine a detailed knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the human body, with the philosophy of osteopathic healthcare. We aim to find the root cause of your pain and not just treat the symptoms. Osteopathic Practitioners view the body as a whole functioning unit. Osteopathic practitioners appreciate that the body has the potential to heal itself, and we are trained to assist in optimizing this potential using a wide variety of manual techniques. We focus on how the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue and internal organs work with each other.

The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® is a unique, holistic approach to movement. Some benefits of a regular Gyrotonic practice include a healthier, more supple spine, increased range of motion, greater joint stability, improved agility, and athletic performance, and deep internal strength.

The Gyrotonic Method is an original and unique movement method that addresses the entire person by opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion, and improving strength and movement efficiency. With Gyrotonic exercises, each movement flows into the next, allowing the joints to move through a natural range of motion without jarring or compression. These carefully crafted sequences create balance, efficiency, strength and flexibility. The Gyrotonic Method utilizes specialized equipment to guide, assist and challenge the exerciser. People from all walks of life take Gyrotonic classes, including fitness enthusiasts, senior citizens, accomplished athletes and people recovering from an injury or living with a disability. Gyrotonic exercises help athletes improve their performance and rehabilitation clients recover more quickly and fully post injury.

The GYROKINESIS ® Method is a movement method that addresses the entire body, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion and creating functional strength through rhythmic, flowing movement sequences. It is an original and unique method that coordinates movement, breath and mental focus. The Gyrokinesis Method is practiced on a mat and chair without equipment. Without the feedback and guidance of equipment, participants in a Gyrokinesis class are more dependent on their own proprioception to explore movement sequences.
