How Winter Osteopathy Can Save Your Holiday Season
If you’ve ever had a massage after intense physical activity, you know how good it feels. But have you ever thought about osteopathy? If you’re not even sure what it is, here’s more about it and how this holistic approach can make you feel at your best during the winter holiday season.
Osteopathy is a different approach to health involving non-invasive treatments for total body health. It treats and strengthens the musculoskeletal framework including your joints, tendons, ligaments, muscles, and spine. This positively impacts your circulatory, nervous, and lymphatic systems. When you have an osteopathy treatment, there is no focus on one problem area but passive techniques that balance all of these systems.
How It Works
Osteopaths use a wide range of hands-on techniques to bring about a positive effect on the soft tissues of your body. They are highly trained to manually locate any restricted or excessively strained parts. This means you can relieve chronic pain from injuries or surgeries and get relief from back pain, headaches, migraines, sciatica, tennis elbow, digestive woes, and plenty more.
What Does Osteopathy Do for You in Winter?
For many people, pain and stiffness becomes worse in the winter. However, it’s not the cold weather that is worsening your inflammation or causing arthritis. In winter, people are far more sedentary. This lack of movement can lead to stiffness and pain.
Additionally, you may be less social due to the weather. When it’s too icy and snowy to leave your house, you may feel isolated. It’s this isolation that can increase your feelings of pain.
You may have Seasonal Affective Disorder as well due to the shorter days. This can make you feel low, and even keep you more sedentary. With osteopathy though, you can treat your entire body to well-being from the physical and mental aspects of this holistic treatment.
However, you should know osteopathy isn’t just a massage. It emphasizes self-healing which will come with some home exercises, dietary changes, and lifestyle adjustments. Everything will be tailored to you to give you the best possible results. The best part about it though is that you should feel the results immediately. This means you could be ready with holiday cheer right afterwards.
