Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine that influences health by treating and balancing the structural framework of the body. Treatment aims to increase the mobility of joints, relieve muscle tension, reduce pain and enhance blood flow and nerve supply to tissues, thereby facilitating the body’s innate healing mechanisms.
At The Health Formula, we use a variety of osteopathic techniques to improve the function of the musculoskeletal system in order to provide overall good health and wellbeing. Techniques we use include deep tissue massage, myofascial release, stretching, joint manipulation and dry needling. We also provide advice on posture, corrective exercises, diet and lifestyle to help aid recovery and prevent reoccurrences.
Osteopathy is suitable for people of all ages, from newborns to the elderly. We regularly see patients who have been injured in the workplace, at home, or while playing sports.
Our practice provides high-quality care to the residents of Melbourne, including Caulfield and Caulfield South, Elsternwick, Elwood, Ormond, Bentley, Glenhuntly, Malvern and beyond.
