At Boyd’s Fitness Centre we have a qualified osteopath and massage therapist available on site for all your needs
Osteopathy is based on the concept that all human body systems work together as a whole. They are all linked together and therefore, any disturbance in any one part can affect various other parts.
Osteopathic techniques aim at relieving aches and pains, restore functions, promote health and well-being, and give back harmony and balance to the body.
When we suffer any psychological or physical trauma, our body automatically adapts itself and seeks a new balance. Once sourced, this new balance is invariably incorrect and will probably not be the most healthy balance, and in most cases will induce a series of dysfunctions. These changes can modify in both the short and/or long term in any single, or in various functions of the body systems, and will manifest themselves like illnesses.
Osteopathy helps the body to retrieve the correct relationship between its compounds (muscles, bones and joints, internal organs and all tissues).
The Osteopath looks for the original cause, seeks to correct it, and then leave the bodily mechanisms of auto healing and regulation to do the rest.
The Osteopath uses a large range of specific techniques and works in three main fields. The three main fields in Osteopathy
All kind of pains and dysfunctions such as:
