Osteopathic massage is a holistic ‘whole body’, soft-tissue focused form of massage that incorporates both osteopathic and stretching techniques.
Osteopathic massage aims to free up restrictions or stiffness within muscles and joints to not only improve the body’s movement and posture but also blood flow and lymphatic drainage for improved tissue health.
Muscles that are sore and tense often have tender spots in them that are called trigger points, commonly know as “knots”. These points are the focus of a dry needling treatment, whereby fine filament needles are used to release these points. Releasing these points can improve the ability of the muscle to contract and release, consequently improving the function of surrounding joints, nerves and vessels.
