process and return the body to a normal state of functioning, whether there are
structural or general health problems.
can benefit most types of aches, pains and strains in people of every age,
whether active or sedentary.Our Osteopathic massage and manipulation techniques
are highly effective in treating back, neck and other joint problems. This
treatment can also increase your flexibility, reducing the stiffness that so
often accompanies most joint problems. The improvement in mobility not only
aids recovery but also helps prevent recurrence and, in extreme cases, can

problems could be linked to stress. The Naturopathic approach to stress is to
look closely at your lifestyle, work environment and relationships and suggest

ones self, to raise self value, is encouraged along with good communication of
feelings and thoughts. Massage, appropriate nutrition, specific relaxation
techniques and counselling are recommended. Take the Stress Test to check your stress levels.
