Osteopathy Services in Geelong
Osteopathy is a form of health care that focuses on the musculoskeletal system and its interrelationship with the body’s overall health and aims to improve the body’s function by restoring balance and harmony to the body’s structure. Our osteopaths are able to treat a wide range of conditions across all ages.
Osteopathic treatment usually involves a combination of techniques and can be applied to:
- muscles, fascia and tendons such as massage, stretching or myofascial release;
- joints, such as articulation or manipulation;
- enhance breathing and fluid circulation such as working on the ribcage, diaphragm, and inherent body rhythms; and
- exercise prescription, postural and lifestyle advice.
