What is Manual Osteopathic Therapy? 

Manual Osteopathic Therapy (MOT) looks at the body as a whole unit, and in conjunction with the emotional and mental states of the person. The treatment is applied in a gentle manner and works to correct the structure of the human body in order to regain proper functioning. It is supportive of the body's innate healing capabilities. This is done through various techniques including, but not limited to: Myofascial Release, Visceral Manipulation, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Osteoarticular Techniques, Neural Manipulation, and Craniosacral Therapy. For a more detailed look at the techniques listed, please click on the "Modalities" tab under "The Therapies" heading. 

Initial Assessment: 

In the initial 90 minute appointment, one can expect a thorough case history taken, followed by a physical assessment. During this time, findings will be shared in order to educate the patient on what the body is presenting allowing for development in self awareness...a key to a well functioning body, and success in treatment. We will go through a treatment plan and expected outcomes, and start treatment if time permits. 

Please bring a pair of loose shorts and a tank top to ALL of your treatments. It is advised to book a follow up appointment for a week or two after your initial assessment.
