MYSOSKELETAL OSTEOPATHIC BODYWORK
Myoskeletal Bodywork is based on the principles of Osteopathy and Structural Integration. Most of my clients would normally see an Osteopath.
Various manual techniques are used, including mobilisations, soft tissue release, muscle energy techniques, neuromuscular re-education and clinical massage. Muscle imbalances are assessed and corrected treating muscles, fascia and skeletal structures to restore balance, improve function and reduce pain.
By addressing the fundamental issues in the muscles, fascia, ligamentous, capsular and nervous systems, practitioners aim to correct and eliminate the associated symptoms.
The idea behind Structural Integration is that if someone's body can be aligned properly, his or her health problems can be dramatically reduced, because the body will work as a whole. Osteopathy shares this idea, arguing that many chronic health conditions are related to musculoskeletal problems.
