Total Body Balancing is a holistic approach to enhance an individual’s overall well-being by optimizing the balance and function of the body through gentle manual techniques performed by trained practitioners. Key principles include:
Assessment: Practitioners evaluate posture, movement patterns, and tissue texture to identify imbalances.
Treatment: Techniques involve gentle manipulation to release restrictions, including joint mobilization, myofascial release, and more.
Integration: Recognizing the interconnectedness of body systems to improve coordination and integration.
Patient-Centered: Tailoring treatment to an individual’s specific needs and health history.
Holistic Well-Being: Addressing emotional and mental aspects for relaxation and stress reduction.
Self-Care: Providing guidance on exercises and lifestyle modifications.
Total Body Balancing can address musculoskeletal issues, postural problems, mobility limitations, and stress-related tension. It complements conventional medical treatments for overall health and recovery.
Osteopathy, founded by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still in the 1870s, shares principles of viewing the body as a whole, recognizing system interconnectedness, and supporting self-healing mechanisms. It employs techniques like soft tissue manipulation, joint mobilization, and more to promote natural healing. Osteopathic care is suitable for all ages, emphasizing a holistic approach to health and wellness.
