Putting your body in good hands
"When you touch one thing with deep awareness, you touch everything."
Osteopathy is a healthcare profession that works primarily via the musculoskeletal system to diagnose, treat and help patients to manage a wide range of healthcare issues.
Alicia Poole is the principal osteopath at TheBodyWorks Osteopathy. The core principle that she adopts is that wellbeing is dependent on how you, as an individual, are able to function and adapt to changes in physical capability and your environment. Osteopaths are often described as treating the individual rather than the condition: when treating a patient I adopt a biopsychosocial approach, considering biological, psychological and social factors, instead of viewing a symptom or injury in isolation.
Treatment is intended to aid the body's own healing systems and may include physical manipulation, stretching and massage to improve joint mobility, relieve muscle tension and improve blood and nerve supply, as well as helping you to discover active ways of enhancing and maintaining your own health and wellbeing.
"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
you touch everything."
- Lao Tzu
