Osteopathy is a manual medicine focusing on movement: movement of joints, fluids, breath, energy and emotions.
It is a branch of medical practice that emphasizes the treatment of medical disorders through the manipulation and massage of the bones, joints, and muscles.
Whenever there is a restriction or an obstruction in the circulation of one of these components, discomfort pain diseases or illness happen.
The work of the osteopath is to find the obstruction, fix it and let Nature do the rest.
Using soft gentle and highly safe manual techniques the osteopath helps your body to heal.
After a total assessment and treatment, you can feel very relaxed and you will be sent back home with food for thought and specific tailored breathing homework and/or stretching exercises.

OSTEOPATHY + DENTISTRY
Osteopathy is a holistic manual medicine which focuses on movement and circulation.
Its philosophy is that when each and every part of the body is moving properly and all fluids are circulating the way they are designed at a healthy pace the body is able to function in a state called Health.
Osteopathy is worldwide known for results in treatment of back pain, neck pain and joint pain. More and more people consult an osteopath to resolve digestive disorders, chronic pain, functional diseases, during pregnancy or after birth for both parents and babies.
Osteopathy offers a large variety of techniques to address dental issues. It considers teeth to be more than just pieces of bones sitting on a jaw. Teeth are alive organs, a reflection of our diet, our posture and our health.
During odontogenesis (embryologic development) teeth partially originate from the ectomesenchyme which is the same origin as skin, organs, nervous system and the brain.
Although teeth go through a process of ossification, they share the same origin with our senses organs, our proprioception, our interaction with the outside world and our nervous system.
Cranial osteopathy is a branch of osteopathy developed in the early 20th century. It works on cranial membranes (dura-mater), balancing their tension, allowing the cerebro-spinal fluids to flow unrestricted and nourish each part of the brain.
As a result a biorhythm animates the entire cranium. This same biorhythm resonates on the teeth.
Osteopathy uses the gentle natural strength of this movement to help relax tension in the jaw and teeth.
With a complete assessment of posture, feet arches, spine alignment and jaw tension, the Osteopath aims to unlock unnecessary tension responsible for non-medical dental issues.
