Osteopathy

What is Osteopathy?

The year was 1874 and Andrew Still, the founder of Osteopathy, was looking for a way to improve on the current methods of treating. He had just lost his wife and 2 of his 4 children to a meningitis outbreak. Frustrated, he recognized a need to look at the body and the patient differently. Osteopathy evolved out of this new way of looking at the concept of health and treating for health.

Many of the symptoms people report to me are the body's attempt to express dysfunction, usually not in the area of the symptom. Our brains have a limited awareness of our bodies. If, say, the stomach is upset, often people will feel tension in their upper back. Constipation can refer pain into the lower back. A heart attack can present as pain in the left arm or as ingestion. These are examples of referred symptoms. As an Osteopathic Practitioner, I am trained to see these symptoms as signals that something else may be the primary concern.

Osteopathy is a system of health care that follows 4 main principles when treating a person:

  • Your body is a complete unit.
  • It has its own self-protecting and healing mechanisms. When these falter, disease begins.
  • Your structure (bones, muscles, etc.) and function (how the body works) are interrelated.
  • Successful treatment (true healing) must consider and use the preceding three principles.

Why Osteopathic Manual Therapy?

If you are seeking a more comprehensive, integrative approach that looks at your uniqueness and provides pro-active solutions. Osteopathic manual therapy uses orthopedic testing, highly trained palpation skills, the functionality of your skeletal system, soft tissues, cranial vitality and the health of your internal organs as part of an assessment.

ETA Scan: Are You Ready!

Your body is a unique collection of physiological systems that function because of the flow of energy. When the energy is in balance, our bodies are balanced or healthy. Many factors affect the flow of these energies: stress, hormonal imbalances, digestive dysfunction and environmental pollution.

Just as every cell phone has its own frequency, so does every cell, tissues and here is what is really exciting, so does every pathology, from every bacteria, virus and fungus, to every organ that is struggling with inflammation or lack of blood flow, all have a distinct frequency.

These frequencies are stored in the machine’s memory as a graph

This is where the ETA Scan comes in.

All these various signature frequencies have been stored in the data bank and I can first determine the nature of the dysfunction and then compare them to frequencies of healthy tissues and organs. In this way, we can measure the energy flow in your body and determine what is out of balance and what needs to be done. Using the ETA’s advanced graphics I can ‘see’ your body’s various organs, tissues and structural components and their responses to suggested remedies. Patients can see the energetic vitality of each of these internal areas, as well as where energy blocks may be present.

Once the issue has been identified and the vibrational signatures balanced, as remedy can be produced to further enhance the correction. This creates responsive and highly accurate treatment results.

Are you ready to explore deep into your health issues and find the root cause and a personal approach to your health? Welcome to the new millennium and a paradigm shift in how we define health care.

What to expect:

The first session is two hours. The scan takes approximately 30 minutes and then depending on the complexity of your case, we will go through all of the data collected and begin making positive changes in your health. At the end of the session, a remedy can be created for you to continue healing at home.

Follow up sessions can be the full two hours, or one hour.

How Would I Benefit from ETA-Scan?

Knowing if you have reduced energy frequency in certain areas of your body may help predict poor functioning before it has had time to develop into a disease state. At this early stage, natural remedies such as herbals and other supplements may be taken to help rebalance the energy flow and stimulate the affected organ or body system.

As an added benefit, if you are taking a medication, or dietary supplement such as a vitamin or herbal preparation, it may be keyed into the ETA-Scan system to determine if it increases or decreases energetic flow. This tells you if the supplement you are taking is actually helping or hindering your overall health and well-being.

The ETA-Scan is used as widely in Europe, where there are over 3,000 practitioners utilizing it on a regular basis to better determine the health status and potential of their patients.
