What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a system of manual medicine which focuses on the relationship between the function of the body and its structure. By physically treating the structure of the body, it has the ability to normalise and re-align. By doing so, it allows the function and, therefore, overall health to improve.
Osteopaths work to support the fact that the body is self-regulating and will perform best when all systems of the body are balanced and functioning efficiently. This includes, but is not limited to, the musculoskeletal, circulatory, nervous and digestive systems. Osteopaths focus on the whole body as well as looking at lifestyle issues that may be contributing to the situation.
Using skilled evaluation, diagnosis and a wide range of techniques an Osteopath can identify dysfunction in the body and treat it accordingly. Osteopathic treatment uses techniques such as soft tissue techniques and stretching for the general treatment of muscle, tendons and ligaments, joint movement and articulation, as well as slow release techniques such as ligament balancing and cranial osteopathy, which make it gentle and safe to use on the elderly, babies and pregnant women.

The Olympic Channel: Game Breakers 👊 In 1960 Australia won it's first winter Paralympic medal. It took 50 years before a women would stand on that podium. A girl from Geelong, Victoria who didn't even know the world of Alpine Skiing existed. After 150 days of on-snow ski training she debuted for Australia at the winter Paralympics & on her birthday became Australia's first female winter Paralympic medalist. This is (part) of my story. ⛷💕 (Link below & in my bio) ttps://www.olympicchannel.com/en/playback/gamebreakers/core-gamebreakers/how-jessica-gallagher-became-australias-first-para-alpine-ski-queen/
Couple of weeks ago in Tassie attempting to hit the top point of Mt Wellington but Mother Nature had other plans. 😂 I've been on sone windy peaks ⛷ but Welly was like no other.

Literally thought I was going to be blown off the edge & yet somehow @songbirdosteo got her camera out to take this pic of me struggling to get down (& not lose my beanie,)... maybe a hand next time mate?! 😂😂😂 #hiking #MtWellington #windy
