Benjamin Durie, DOMP
My goal with everyone I work with is to get to the root of the issue and to make an organized plan to facilitate recovery and allow health to express fully. How does this play out? By listening to your goals and expectations, by using a skilled and thorough assessment, and by working with your body holistically to encourage realignment.
What sort of cases do I see?
People dealing with back or joint pain, digestive issues, sleep disorders, headaches, and often people who are simply interested in growing older healthier (preventative care works!). I see people of all age groups and all activity levels from newborns to older folk and from professional dancers to seawall walkers.
What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a safe and effective patient centred manual therapy that works in combination with the individuals own homeostatic mechanisms to help restore balance and optimal health. It works with the understanding that the way the body is able to function is inseparable from the way it is structured.
All aspects of the body must work together to maintain health and the osteopathic approach is able to address the person as a whole to improve not only structure and therefore function but overall health and wellbeing.
Osteopathic Practitioners support the body’s ability to restore and maintain health by using skilled palpation and manual techniques to influence muscles, joints, nerves, connective tissue, circulation and internal organs.
