Welcome Sue Baron!
Hello everyone! I am so excited to be starting Osteopathy at The Fitness Firm! After almost 30 years of practice as a massage therapist, working with this new modality gives me a further advantage to optimizing people’s health. Although, osteopathy is not new, it was created by Dr. Andrew Still in 1874. More than just working with muscles, osteopathy focuses on the framework of the body; the bones, ligaments, muscles and connective tissue/fascia to correct imbalances and relieve pain. The osteopathic philosophy summarized in one simple statement “The body is a unit”. Everything works together. The goal of the osteopath is to find the source of the problem and treat the cause. For example, somebody’s lower back pain may be, in fact, rooted in their foot mechanics. The problem in the foot can lead to altered movements of the chain; at the knee, hip, lumbar spine driving the lower back pain.
With osteopathy, I’m able to find the root of the problem. The root of the pain. Rather than just relieving localized symptoms.
What does osteopathy do? Well, besides relieving back pain, neck pain, and headaches, osteopathy can help with digestive disorders, repetitive strain, TMJ pain, migraines, post concussion related issues.
I am looking forward to meeting and working with you to help you find your optimal health!
