This stress can mount up incrementally and result in a serious impact on the body such as a sudden fall or a misalignment of the spine. As a holistic Osteopath, I look for and treat these imbalances before they develop into something serious, and re-establish harmony between the body’s structure and its function. Acupuncture, cranio-sacral therapy, massage and cupping can be effectively combined to restore the body’s natural balance and health so that it can begin healing itself. Years of experience have also taught me that often lurking behind physical pain is emotional tension stored, knowingly or unknowingly, in various parts of the body.
