ABOUT INNER PEACE OSTEOPATHY

WELCOME!

Inner Peace Osteopathy is inspired by the ancient philosophy that balance and harmony are the truth to good health. We help patients restore the body’s inherent ability to self-heal and self-regulate by removing abnormal imbalances and returning the lost rhythm and natural flow to the body. 
Poor health, pain, and suffering are interpreted as imbalances and disharmony in the whole body which affects our mental, emotional, and physical well-being. 

PURPOSE

The purpose at Inner Peace Osteopathy, is to understand the root cause(s) of the patient’s health problem rather than bandage the effects (symptoms), so that the individual can achieve their optimal health for life. Through manual treatment, we strive to provide excellent therapeutic care by:
  • Objectively listening to the health needs of the individual
  • Removing structural obstruction to bring balance and stability
  • Integrating and coordinating all systems harmoniously
  • Returning the inherent rhythmicity back to the body

CLASSICAL OSTEOPATHY

What Is Osteopathy?
The Ontario Osteopathic Association defines Osteopathy as an American science, founded by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still. It is a drugless and non-invasive manual form of therapy which treats the entire body. It follows a set of principles and emphasizes the interrelationship between the alignment of structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) of the body. Intrinsically, osteopathy believes in the body's ability to self-heal and self-regulate.

Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, Founder of Osteopathy (1828-1917)
After 25 years of thoroughly studying the exact knowledge of anatomy and physiology, Andrew Taylor Still, a physician and surgeon in Kirksville, Missouri discovered and gave to the world the therapeutic healing of Osteopathy in 1874. He adopted the term and meaning in 1889 because he reasoned that faulty positions or adjustments of the bones ('osteon') was the starting point from which he ascertained the cause of pathological conditions, and so combined the 'osteo' with 'pathy' (meaning suffering, disease) resulting in OSTEOPATHY to designate a new development in the science of medicine. 

BENEFITS OF CLASSICAL OSTEOPATHY

Holistic 
Classical osteopathy is a distinctive form of manipulative therapy founded on the philosophy that all body systems are interrelated and dependent upon one another for good health (wellness). Recognizing this importance, treatments are holistic by integrating and coordinating the whole body, mind, and spirit rather than just treating the illness.

Drugless
The approach of classical osteopathy is the reliance on the body's natural ability to self-heal and self-regulate and not that of external medication.

Non-Invasive
Classical osteopathy leaves no marks on the skin or relies on inserting any medical instruments into the body. As a result, no bleeding, bruising, and trauma is produce during treatment compared to other holistic modality to improve circulations of arteries, veins, lymphatics, CSF, and nerve forces. Therefore, allowing the body to begin self-healing and self-regulating in a far shorter recovery time. 

Preventive 
The effectiveness of classical osteopathy prevents fixed postural tensions which are physiologically abnormal and can lead to disease. Osteopathic treatment helps to maintain balance, structural stability, and harmonious function of all systems to support a healthier individual.

Precise
Osteopathic treatment is precise in improving nerve, arterial, & cerebral spinal fluid supply, and venous & lymphatic drainage in the individual so healing can begin to reverse destructive pathological processes and reduces or eliminate pain.   

Palliative
Treatments are relaxing and help to reduce pain when the patient’s life forces have been diminished due to illness.

OSTEOPATHIC CARE

Osteopathic care is consistently safe, gentle, and effective. Treatments rendered are specific to each patient’s needs with precision and rational thinking. On each visit, patients are examined and assessed structurally using palpation through a well-recognized system (Osteopathic Structural Examination). Treatments are suitable for:
  • Infants: colic, feeding problems, sleep difficulties, etc., 
  • Children: ear infections, skin irritations, bed wetting, etc.,
  • Youths: growing pains, tissue strains, head injuries, etc.,
  • Post secondary students: poor posture from studying, stress, etc.,
  • Adults: back pains, neck & shoulder problems, headaches, etc., 
  • Mothers: pregnant, post-pregnancy, difficulty breast feeding, edema, painful periods, pelvic pain, etc.,
  • Seniors: joint pains, low vitality, palliative care, etc., 
  • Chronic conditions: fibromyalgia, inflammation, etc.,
  • Acute conditions: accidents, falls, etc.,
  • Reducing or eliminating pain with no trauma
  • Dysfunctions: circulatory, digestive, endocrine, lymphatic, musculoskeletal, respiratory, reproductive, TMJ, etc.,
  • Rehabilitation after sports, dance, or repetitive strain injuries, car accidents, etc., 
  • Maintaining ongoing health for longevity and vitality  

Initial Osteopathic Treatment
The initial osteopathic treatment requires each new patient to fill out an online health history and consent form. Treatments are fully clothed and it is recommended to bring a change of loose comfortable clothing or workout clothes for each treatment to allow the body to be moved.

Duration: Approximately 45 minutes.

Coverage: Varies by health insurance provider, please check your private health insurance plan details for reimbursement. 

Follow-up Treatment
Follow-up treatments will vary based on each patient’s health needs and their body’s ability to heal. Typically patients will significantly improve after 3-5 treatments. In some serious or chronic cases, a longer treatment plan may be required.

Duration: Approximately 30 minutes.

Coverage: Varies by health insurance provider, please check your private health insurance plan details for reimbursement.
