HOW IT CAN HELP YOU!!
One of the key principles is based upon the self-healing and self-regulating mechanisms of the body, which are impacted mechanically and physiologically through anatomy.
The practice of treating the structures of the body to have an effect on the physiology (function) of the body. Treatment is gentle and works by taking pressure and strain off of nerves, arteries, veins and lymphatics. This allows for better neurological communication, blood and lymph flow throughout the body and enables the body to function optimally. After treatment, patients find that they have more energy and that their bodies are able to cope with the stresses of life more easily.
Treatment takes a whole-body, or 'holistic', approach to health care. This means that practitioners concentrate on more than simply treating the problematic area. Using manual techniques, they aim to balance all systems of the body to provide overall good health and well being, meaning you may come in for pain or dysfunction in one area but receive additional treatment in other areas of your body. This is because the underlying principle is that all parts of the body function together in an integrated manner - if one part is restricted, then the rest of the body must adapt and compensate.
By affecting the structure, treatment can influence the function of physiological processes and help the innate self-healing and self-regulating mechanisms work better. For this reason, treatment with your practitioner may begin more frequently, but will eventually become more spaced out over time as your body is put into a better position to reach its optimal health.
Treatment focuses on total body health by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework while also treating the impact of the visceral systems on the entire body structure. The aim of treatment is to positively affect the body’s nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems.
