Manual Osteopathy

Manual Osteopathy is a type of manual therapy correlated to body structures such as bones, joints, ligaments, fascia, and some organs and also to some extent to body fluids, circulation, and bioenergetic aspects. It is usually a pretty slow and deep technique with no any sharp movements, and it is based on the natural physiological and self-healing mechanisms of the human body by implementing the osteopathic assessment and treatment of somatic dysfunctions. The wellness version usually looks nice and soft, although the treatment modality looks more intense and some therapeutic pain and some aggravation of symptoms during and after the session are possible. The particular implementation and style of osteopathy is very individual from specialist to specialist.

Massage Therapy

There are a few main approaches in massage therapy: - relaxation massage therapy (aiming to reduce stress, improve overall wellbeing, quality of life, for wellness, healthy lifestyle, hygiene purposes). The session usually consists of screening tests with no specific assessment, Swedish massage techniques - remedial massage therapy (aiming to verify musculoskeletal dysfunction and treat the causative muscle hypertonicity to reduce signs of dysfunction)The session usually consists of screening tests, specific assessment, Swedish massage techniques for warming up and desensitizing the body, remedial massage techniques.  As remedial massage therapy is a type of treatment, some therapeutic pain and some aggravation of symptoms after the session are possible.

Please if you have any medical concerns, do not address your medical concerns with the practitioner, please refer to your Medical Doctor. Usually, by the scope, any manual therapy practitioner level is to provide musculoskeletal assessment and treatment. Although it is never guaranteed or can't be predicted if the treatment will help you with your problem or not, we want to convince you that the practitioners will do their best to help you in the optimal way possible. Thank you for understanding.

- Informed consent: Please be free to inform, ask, alternate or stop any parts of the treatment process anytime during the session if you feel unsure, worse, uncomfortable, changed your mind or have any other concern possible regardless of whether you even gave your informed consent before, its totally your choice.


- Treatment process: The treatment time is your chance to have a great meeting with yourself in order to improve your condition, health and reach your treatment goals. Please be open, caring, and creative to your needs as much as possible. Listen to what your body tells you and wants you to follow in order to release the healing energy. Be free to follow and express your healing vibrations, and body intuition, and discover your mind resources toward your health and wellbeing. Be your best friend and supporter during the session and be sure to involve a practitioner in that process as an optimal assistance to your healing process.

Silence/Talk/ Self-expression: The best way to perceive treatment modalities is to keep silent, switch your focus inside of your body, listen to your body, reflecting your healing reactions, and follow your personal intuition in this process in order to run efficient self-healing mechanisms. Talking about some unrelated topics is possible as well, but not encouraged, as it could significantly reduce the effectiveness of treatment. On the other side, if you feel that your body wants to express some movements, reactions, breathing, shaking, laughing, crying, singing, sounding, any emotions, thoughts, or anything else, related to your healing process, it is very good not to suppress and to express and it's very encouraged to express.


- Representative/Accompanying person: For individuals younger than 16 years old, the presence of the parent/relative/guardian is mandatory in the office during the treatment. For the adult clients, it is totally your choice. You are very welcome to bring to the treatment as many persons as many people as the office space can accommodate. If you want the opinion from the therapeutic perspective the presence of other people in the treatment room during the treatment can distract the concentration on the client`s healing process either the client and/or practitioner, that's why it is not encouraged.
