Why Osteopathy & A Holistic Approach?

» The goal of Osteopathic treatment and a holistic approach is to assess and treat the WHOLE person, to get to the root or underlying cause of illness and pain in the body and treat the problem at the source, instead of simply masking the symptoms.

» Osteopathy recognizes that symptoms may not originate in the area in which the patient feels discomfort or pain. There may be several factors contributing to the symptoms that the patient is experiencing. Practitioners are skilled at finding and addressing the root of the problem.

»  Holistic Healing emphasizes that the need to look at the whole person includes all aspects of physical, mental and spiritual health. A state of ‘health’ implies that all natural processes that support life are functioning at an optimal level in their intended alignment; therefore, the ultimate goal of holistic healing is wholeness. Holistic Healing incorporates many different modalities working in harmony to achieve overall balance and wellbeing.

»  Alison integrates BodyTalk and energy modalities into her osteopathic practice in a complementary way to achieve a holistic approach and seek overall wellness of the whole person.

What to Expect from a Treatment

Alison integrates Osteopathy, BodyTalk and energy modalities into each treatment, using a combination of these modalities suited to each individual’s needs, respecting that the body is a unified system most effectively approached as such, rather than as isolated parts. Combining Osteopathy, BodyTalk and energy modalities allows Alison to investigate further into the possible source of the physical symptomatology, recognizing that these symptoms may be reflecting just the surface of the true source of the issue(s). Each session’s goal is to reach individualized optimal states of health. All sessions include respecting the individual's innate wisdom.
