Osteopathy is a non-medical manual treatment grounded on the deep knowledge of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and neurology. Practitioners of Osteopathic manipulative medicine follow the theory that imbalances in the human structure contribute to, or are directly related to, the development and/or maintenance of disease. Osteopathic practitioners recognize the fact that the human body is self-regulating and self-healing and will strive for health if given the chance. The role of the Osteopathic manipulative practitioner is to encourage this self-healing capacity through manual treatment – to convert the physical into the physiological. Osteopathy’s main contribution to the medical sciences is this unique viewpoint and understanding of the relationships between disease and dysfunction.

Massage therapy is a hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, and joints. Massage therapy treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body and improves health and well-being by acting on the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Massage can help alleviate the soft tissue discomfort associated with everyday stress, muscular overuse, and many chronic pain syndromes. If employed early enough after accidents involving trauma and injury, massage therapy can greatly reduce the development of painful muscular patterning.

Acupuncture is an ancient healing technique that originated in China thousands of years ago. The theory upon which acupuncture is based, acknowledges the balance of yin and yang energy within the body. Just as Western Medicine has mapped out how the nerves and blood flow throughout the body, Traditional Chinese Medicine has mapped out how energy, or chi, flows throughout the body through specific channels called meridians. Dysfunctions or diseases result when there is an excess of chi, a deficiency of chi, or an actual blockage of chi. Treatment of this imbalance of energy, or chi, can be done by accessing the chi, in these meridians, at specific points, known as acupuncture points. Needles, which are sterilized and used only once, are inserted at designated acupuncture points in order to normalize the flow of chi in that meridian with the result in an improvement in symptoms.

Though acupuncture can be used to treat a wide variety of diseases, in North America, much success has been achieved by using acupuncture for the treatment of numerous pain syndromes. Conditions such as back pain, sciatica, frozen shoulder syndrome, whiplash, headaches, TMJ problems, neck pain, all joint pains and arthritis, fibromyalgia, etc. will often respond favorably to acupuncture.

Benefits of Acupuncture

Acupuncture pain management brings both physical and emotional relief to those suffering from both acute and chronic discomfort as it is best known for controlling pain. It has also been helpful for those in drug rehab facilities, bulimia centers, anorexia treatment facilities, and for those seeking help with various psychological disorders. Mental clarity is another benefit of acupuncture. This is because acupuncture helps to balance the body’s natural flow of energy.
Can acupuncture benefit healthy people? Many people use acupuncture in order to prevent illness. It is also used as a way of keeping the immune system healthy.
