What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a holistic integrative approach to treatment. Gentle and non-invasive, osteopathy is for everyone, from newborns to seniors.

Here at LiveWell, we focus on you, the individual and how you function as a whole.  We assess and treat your body and its complex interconnected system: musculoskeletal, soft tissue, cranio-sacral, visceral, circulatory, neurological and central nervous.

How Osteopathy can help you and your body

Your healing process can begin once we address the cause of dysfunction and pain, and restore the balance your body needs.  

By treating the primary cause of the problem the treatment is more effective, minimizing the number of treatments needed… an excellent reason to choose an osteopathic manual practitioner to treat your current issue.

Osteopathy promotes health and well being

Osteopathic treatment is gentle, comfortable and non-invasive, making it an accessible treatment for all ages; including infants, children, adolescents, teenagers, adults, and seniors.

Osteopathy treats the individual, not the disease. By restoring the body’s various structures and balance within its various systems the body can begin the healing process and many of the conditions people suffer, can be relieved.
