Baden Osteopathy

Osteopathy treats any type of musculoskeletal pain (whether muscle, bone, joint, nerve, etc.) and is also good for general maintenance of the body.  A treatment involves some soft tissue massage work, joint mobilizations to increase movement in stiff joints, and muscle energy techniques to stretch tight muscles. Other techniques such as active release, cranial sacral therapy, and visceral manipulation can be added to the treatment when appropriate.  All techniques are relaxing and not painful; therefore treatment is enjoyable.  Osteopathy works on the principle of treating the body as a whole, and therefore multiple areas are worked on which increases positive results.
