Our digestion is quite simple in many ways, food goes in one end, gets broken down in the intestines, and then waste is eliminated. The whole thing is a kind of chemical factory, breaking down food into it’s components so we can absorb it. A steady rhythmic wave passes down the tube (peristalsis), taking food through from one end to the other.
Digestion is affected by stress and pain, particularly in your back and neck. This is why Osteopathy is so effective with many digestive problems, in babies as well as adults and children.
Our chest, the ribs, spine and diaphragm, have to work together in harmony to really work properly.
By analysing what is working and what isn't, adjustments can be made to achieve that balance. These adjustments are not just made in the form of treatment, but in the form of lifestyle changes and practical exercises that you can make.
Once corrected, breathing is easier, and you have more energy as you are not expending energy just to breathe!
Many of our existing clients have come to us with this debilitating and distressing condition.
Tiredness, a racing heart, digestion upset, mood swings, disturbed menstrual cycles.
We have found that a Holistic Osteopathy treatment can really help, with improved energy, better sleep, and things finally starting to improve.
Our bodies can suffer terribly with COVID-19. We really have to go all out with our defences to kill it off, and the scars of that battle leave a lasting picture. Osteopathy aims to help your body recover.
We find the chest wall (your ribs etc) feel glued down to the lungs below. We have special techniques to gently free these restrictions. You breathe easier, more deeply, and circulation to the lungs is improved.
And here's the best bit... By getting your body back into balance, you often discover other associated but unexpected benefits.
