The interesting comment that I always hear from my clients is “it’s amazing that you are doing something but it’s so gentle” It is surprising to many that such a gentle touch can have such an effect. The neat thing about osteopathy is that the manual practitioner develops a skill in order to palpate the tissues of the body. This includes the tissues and organs of all of the systems that allow us to function. It’s the gentle touch that the body responds to and is then able to essentially reset itself towards it’s health. Sometimes we need more than a few sessions to achieve this goal but given the opportunity, the body is then able to heal on its own. This is the main goal that osteopathic treatment aims to achieve. It is gentle yet very effective for a number of conditions and all individuals.
