Osteopathic Massage Therapy | What You Need to Know

Osteopathy focuses on hands-on physical manipulation of the body’s muscle tissues, nerves, joints, and bones. It shares a lot with massage therapy, but uses very specific fine-grained manipulation techniques, generally has a wider focus, and an explicit aim of whole-body, holistic healing.

One of the other important characteristics of Osteopathy is that it tends to work on a so-called “systems level,” that is, looking at how certain bodily systems (such as the nervous system, lymphatic system, or the immune system, among others) impact the functioning of our body.

Osteopathic Massage is the combination of Osteopathic principles and massage, integrating a variety of massage techniques into Osteopathic work, such as Craniosacral Therapy, rocking and harmonics, stretches, Myofascial Release, Visceral Manipulation, and also Joint Mobilizations.

An Osteopathic Massage treatment focuses strongly on removing blockages or restrictions within joints and muscles, increasing blood and lymph circulation, and stimulating nerve activity.

Osteopathic Massage can address a range of conditions, such as lower back, neck and shoulder pain, muscular and joint aches and stiffness, headaches, anxiety and stress-related tensions, poor posture, repetitive strain injuries, among other health conditions.
