Osteopathic Care is for ALL- newborn, child, teen, female and males & senior citizens.
Osteopathic manual therapists believe that abnormal functioning of one area of the body can cause symptoms to present elsewhere in the body; the theory of TENSEGRITY. When the body is in balance, there is no excess stress. But when stress is produced in the body – causing imbalances – it can be amplified in other areas. Osteopathic manual therapists acknowledge that the body can heal itself and support the process by removing obstacles in the body.
By investigating and paying attention to the alterations in the body (joints, ligaments, muscles, bones, connective tissue and organs), an osteopathic manual therapist is able to interpret whole patterns of aches, pains and general health concerns. The goal of osteopathy is to restore normal movement so the body can repair itself naturally.
I am busy - as we all are! and often I don't pay a lot of attention to what's happening in my body - I get easily overwhelmed and depleted, unfortunately for me, that often means becoming overemotional and sad. Scheduling regular appointments with Erica allows me to look after myself at all levels; physically, energetically and emotionally. It relieves excess tension in my mind and body. I realign. Any aches and pains from repetitive motion are looked after before they become injuries and I leave feeling as though some spring cleaning has been done inside my mind - with the excess energy and emotion released. I am energized and ready to step back into my hectic schedule! Thank you Erica for keeping me in my happy place - Erin
I had a broken arm caused by a fall & was very frustrated with the healing process. I was also in a lot of pain. Erica listened & completed a thorough assessment. She lessened my discomfort both physically & emotionally & sped up the healing process. I would highly recommend her!
I am a fairly active 62 year old who travels a lot, hikes, golfs and skis. I also have arthritis in my hip and I have been receiving treatments from Erica for over a year. I must say that she is one of only a few health practitioners who have made a difference for me. From the start she has been very thorough in seeking out the cause of my pain and discomfort as opposed to just treating the symptoms. She has a unique ability to assess my physical and energetic states and use various osteopathic protocols to treat my ever changing issues. I don’t believe it is coincidental that shortly after each treatment I am telling my wife how good I feel. While Erica hasn’t been able to improve my golf score, she has enabled a flexibility that keeps me swinging the clubs and walking the course. Erica has definitely been a huge factor in allowing me to maintain my lifestyle with minimal pain and discomfort. Her superb knowledge and skills, along with her pleasant personality ensure that I am always looking forward to my next visit. Jim G
