Osteopath & Craniosacral Therapist in Byron Bay
Osteopathy - Pain is something many people live with on a daily basis and accept it as part of life. But with osteopathy, it can be managed or improved. When the body’s musculoskeletal system is not properly aligned it inhibits circulatory, lymphatic or nervous system function and therefore reduces the body’s ability to heal itself.
Craniosacral Therapy - Involves applying gentle pressure to the head and spine to ensure the free flow of the cerebrospinal fluid. It can help with relieving pain and other ailments such as chronic fatigue syndrome, depression and anxiety.
