Balance Osteopathy – supporting your journey to health
For more than 3,500 years, the labyrinth has symbolised the path of life. Unlike a maze with its
dead ends, wrong turns, and false starts, a labyrinth is a unique journey with a single
destination.


The path to good health, like mazes, often experience obstacles, which Balance Osteopathy
seeks to redress. Balance Osteopathy provides a holistic approach to health care supporting the
body’s ability to restore health on each individual journey.

About Osteopathy

Osteopaths believe that the body is naturally self-healing & self-correcting, given the right environment. Let’s start by breaking this down:


We often take the body’s innate healing capacity for granted.
If we think about what happens when we sprain a joint. It swells up and is acutely painful, protecting the body from over using it, which changes how we use the muscles/joint around the injury. The body alters the blood supply and nerve supply to the injury and the healing slowly progresses and normal function is resumed. So the body has naturally healed itself well.


But what happens when the body can’t complete its journey back to full health? We often find we get stuck in recurrent patterns of dysfunction and pain. It is the job of an osteopath to understand what has gone wrong and why, and to use their hands to support the body’s natural self-healing and to overcome its dysfunction. If balance is achieved in babies and children then this encourages optimal health for a lifetime.
