For treatments in cranial osteopathy, Sydney residents can book a consultation at OsteoLife.
OsteoLife provides patients with personalised and targeted treatment plans that may work to support and maintain their overall health and wellbeing, while reducing joint and muscle pain and discomfort.
While the treatment itself focuses on all areas of the body, the benefits and effects go far beyond the physical body.
Cranial osteopathy looks to provide holistic care to the individual patient, rather than simply focusing on the symptoms. This method of care aims to promote the body’s own ability to recover, heal itself and can assist the patient in feeling overall balance in both the body and the mind.
OsteoLife’s founder, Dr. Valerie Johnston-Dugamin, provides each treatment personally, as she has been doing for more than 6 years.
Treatment begins with an in-depth consultation, allowing Dr. Johnston-Dugamin to better understand the patient’s condition and gain insights into the potential causes of their pain and discomfort.
The information gathered through this consultation will allow Dr. Johnston-Dugamin to develop a course of treatment plan that is suited to each individual patient.
OsteoLife appointments typically last between 40-60 minutes, and are comprised of gentle and non-invasive treatments that may assist in relieving tension and stiffness throughout the body.
The main difference between cranial osteopathy and craniosacral therapy lies in the qualifications held by the practitioners who choose to apply these methods of treatment.
A qualified osteopath who has been trained in cranial osteopathy can perform both techniques, whereas a craniosacral therapist can only use this technique and cannot perform cranial osteopathy.
