Holistic Osteopathic Treatment and Health Coaching in Guernsey
Musculoskeletal pain and injury has many contributing factors that you may not be aware of. By asking you key questions about lifestyle, diet and movement habits, I can then provide specific treatment that will address the root of your particular condition.
‘Quick fix’ treatment doesn’t last, especially if the habits that contribute to injury are not addressed. I can help you recognize and change contributing lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise and stress. If you suffer from recurrent pain and injury, it is very possible that your treatments are not addressing the whole picture!
I will use a combination of Osteopathy, Naturopathic Nutrition, Exercise Therapy and Health Coaching to not just resolve aches and pains but to push you up the spectrum of health and avoid future repercussions.
Osteopathic Consultation and Holistic Treatment in Guernsey
Our first meeting will involve me asking you questions about your aches & pains, lifestyle and goals. After that I will physically assess you and explain any relevant findings.
I will then explain your specific treatment approach in relation to your goals.
In some cases you may need onward referral for further investigation, if not, treatment will commence straight away and may include interventions such as manual therapy, exercise therapy, motivational interviewing and dietary analysis.
Traditionally osteopathic treatment is applied while the patient is recumbent on a plinth. Any positive effect we have on the body in this position may not be apparent when you’re on your feet and active. You may feel pain free whilst resting on a plinth, but pain may still be present when you commence activity again. For this reason my dynamic treatment gets you up and active, leaving you feeling both strong and confident.
Persistent pain can be difficult to manage, but by understanding your experience I can provide consistent, progressive and evidence-informed treatment designed to increase your confidence and activity levels whilst reducing the negative impact of pain on your daily life. This will be achieved by developing a strong professional relationship that empowers you with the control over your discomfort in the knowledge that pain does not necessarily mean harm.
