Supporting the body’s holistic connections.
Your Local Osteopath Watsonia
Osteopathy is a holistic, non-invasive form of manual therapy that was created in 1892. This form of therapy offers a unique way to diagnose and provide treatment. It utilises muscle energy techniques (MET) and massage to treat your injury or condition. Our osteopaths near Watsonia take pride in helping to improve the comfort, functionality, and overall well-being of our clients by working towards improving acute and chronic
pain and mobility and preventing illnesses, musculoskeletal issues, and injuries.
By considering the body’s connection between structure and function, osteopathy aims to address the root cause of ailments, rather than only targeting the symptoms. Focusing on holistic balance may help you to achieve better health by nurturing the dynamic interplay between your body’s systems.
