Please note: I believe that every body is unique. I try to use a combination of treatment techniques which are specific to each individual. None of the below techniques are a compulsory part of my treatment and will only be conducted if safe to perform and with patient consent.
Most treatments will involve deep tissue massage to release tight muscles before working on the underlying joints.
Osteopathic stretches to targeted muscles will help increase range of motion of a particular joint.
Dry needling involves the use of acupuncture needles to release knots in muscles. It's super effective for deep stubborn muscles.
Osteopaths are extensively trained to safely perform these these techniques. You may hear a popping/cracking sound which is caused by the release of gas escaping the joint. I make sure all muscles are loosened up before manipulation to allowing for a gentle joint release. Alternative stretching techniques are used if my patient's are uncomfortable with this treatment or if it is not safe to perform.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a pain-free gentle treatment for a wide variety of conditions such as frozen shoulder, sinusitis, tennis elbow, swollen joints and acute injuries.
I use vacuum suctions cups as a super effective tool for stretching and releasing fascia, skin and connective tissue surrounding tight muscles.
French Aromatherapy is the art of using high quality essential oils that encompasses all methods of use: aromatic, topical, and internal. This method of aromatherapy requires the scientific understanding of how each oil will effect muscular, nervous, respiratory, endocrine, cardiovascular and immune system. All oils used are 'Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade'.
