Osteopathy

OSTEOPATHY is a type of manual therapy that works with tissue position, quality, and function to enhance the body’s ability for self-healing. It is a natural medicine, as it does not involve medications or surgery. It relies instead on palpation, a skill in detecting tissue states using the therapist’s subtle and refined touch. Manual osteopathic practitioners do not treat symptoms of dysfuncti... Read More

OSTEOPATHY is a type of manual therapy that works with tissue position, quality, and function to enhance the body’s ability for self-healing. It is a natural medicine, as it does not involve medications or surgery. It relies instead on palpation, a skill in detecting tissue states using the therapist’s subtle and refined touch. Manual osteopathic practitioners do not treat symptoms of dysfunction (i.e. pain), but rather, they treat the primary source of that dysfunction. Practitioners are trained to treat all the tissues and systems of the body (e.g. musculoskeletal, craniosacral, visceral, fascial, arterial, nervous). Men and women of all ages can benefit from osteopathy.

In particular, osteopathic practice is concerned with the body’s ability to circulate fluids, such as blood, lymph, and cerebrospinal fluid, all of which have vital functions in self-healing, especially after injury, illness, stress, and other traumas that can impede circulation. Because osteopathy is a complete system of assessment and integration of all the body’s systems and tissues, therapists base their practice on a detailed study of human anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics, as well as their many years of experience.

ACUPUNCTURE is an ancient Chinese system is recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) to promote your body’s natural healing, regulation, and pain management capabilities. It is a therapeutic modality of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that has been practiced for 5,000 years. Thin needles are inserted into specific points on the body to restore the balance of Yin and Yang and allow the Qi (vital energy) to flow freely through the channels or meridians. An even distribution of Qi enables maintenance of health and achievement of a state of wellness. Acupuncture also stimulates the body to produce its own pain relievers (endorphins), resulting in pain relief, general relaxation, and restoration of the body’s own internal regulation systems.

COSMETIC ACUPUNCTURE is the specific use of this ancient modality to reduce the signs of aging and increase the appearance of vitality. The goals of this treatment are to stimulate the production of collagen, improve circulation and firm the muscle tone. This benefits the complexion, reduces the appearance of fine lines, lifts sagging areas and promotes a healthy glow.

Acupuncture has proven effective in the treatment of over 100 conditions, including:
- Musculoskeletal Injuries
- Gynaecology & Fertility
- Stress & Anxiety
- General Wellness

WHAT IS PHYSIOTHERAPY?
Physiotherapists are primary health-care providers who specialize in functionality and mobility of the body. Physiotherapy diagnoses and treats limitations of movement that might be caused by injury or chronic illness. It is a regulated health service that is often included in extended health-care insurance.

WHAT TYPES OF ISSUES CAN PHYSIOTHERAPY ADDRESS?
Many clients see a physiotherapist for the following reasons, although this list is not exhaustive:
- musculoskeletal conditions (general body aches)
- sports injuries
- orthopedic conditions
- rehabilitation after broken bones or replacement surgery
- chronic pain

Please call us here at Satori to inquire about specific issues.

WHAT DOES A PHYSIOTHERAPY TREATMENT PLAN TYPICALLY INVOLVE?
Satori offers physiotherapy as one-on-one appointments in private rooms, for customized, focused sessions that address specific concerns. This may involve manual therapy (massage, mobilisation and manipulation), taping, and exercise rehabilitation. Our therapists may also use other therapeutic modalities, depending on the goals of treatment, or cross-refer to other therapists at the clinic according to their diagnosis. Home exercise programs are often used in combination with manual manipulation at the clinic, as exercise and education plays a vital role in empowering patients to self-manage problems and improve quickly.

Have you ever been sitting at your desk at work or outside sitting on a park bench and you have started to daydream? Have you ever read a good book and realize you cannot remember what was written in the previous four or five pages because you were distracted by an unrelated thought? Then you have experienced hypnosis – at a very light level.

With the aid of a hypnotherapist, deeper levels of hypnosis can achieved. It is at these levels that the subconscious is able to absorb positive suggestions which become the basis of change for the better throughout your life. By replacing unwanted conditioning with positive suggestions, a vast array of conditions can be improved or even eliminated.

People experiencing hypnosis report a great sense of relaxation on coming out of hypnosis. Some people say it feels like waking up after a good night’s sleep – even though they have only been in a relaxed state for less than an hour.
