Osteopathy & Anatomy In Motion Therapy @ theLodge.space
A way of detecting and treating damaged parts of the body such as muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints. When the body is balanced and efficient, just like a well tuned engine, it will function with the minimum of wear and tear, leaving more energy for living.
Osteopathy recognises that much of the pain and disability we suffer stems from abnormalities in our body's structure and function.
Osteopaths diagnose and treat problems with muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints to help the body's natural healing ability
Treatment involves gentle, manual techniques - easing pain, reducing swelling and improving mobility. Often, this involves manipulation which can result in an audible 'crack' which is simply the sound of gas bubbles popping in the fluid of the joints.
Cranio-Sacral Therapy is an exceptionally gentle yet extremely powerful form of treatment, which engages with the deepest inherent healing forces within the body in order to enable integration of the whole body-mind.
Cranio-Sacral treatment is most often carried out with the patient lying down, fully clothed, in a quiet and peaceful environment. Treatment involves a very gentle touch of the practitioner’s hands. This light contact may be taken up on the Cranium (head) the Sacrum (tail-bone) the feet, the trunk, or any other part of the body as appropriate. Treatment is generally experienced as a profound relaxation and reintegration which may pervade the whole person, physically, mentally and emotionally, often accompanied by a feeling of lightness and ease.
Osteopathy for Babies & Children
We also offer a safe and supportive treatment for babies and children up to the age of 13. Helping them to restore the body to it’s optimum function.
ANATOMY IN MOTION MOVEMENT THERAPY
Anatomy in Motion (AiM) is a forward thinking movement therapy for pain management, injury rehabilitation and prevention as well has athletic performance and body awareness.
AiM’s flow motion model tracks movement through the human gait cycle (walking), enabling us to see what every joint is doing through the gait cycle. An AiM therapist uses this map of human movement to discover where imbalances and compensations are, unlocking the body’s full potential. Pain is as a sign that the body is out of balance, AiM's intention is finding the cause of the pain not chasing the pain by treating symptoms.
Starting from the feet up we will mobilise, lengthen and re-align your whole body using three dimensional movements. Restoring movement by mobilising joints and therefore creating space to move out of pain and injury into a state of ease by helping your body find its own centre - a place of ease without pain.
Physiotherapy (not currently available)
Physiotherapists assess, manage, treat and rehabilitate those affected by injury, illness or disability encouraging physical development and facilitating recovery by relieving physical pain and assisting on healing injuries (that resulted from physical traumas, illness or surgery), increasing joint mobility and muscle flexibility, building strength, improving static and dynamic balance and posture, enhancing performance and preventing occupational and sports injuries, preparing the body for future elective surgery, educating and also orientating.
