Recovery and restoration in a nurturing, personal space

Good Self Integrated Health Osteopathy pregnancy 1

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a form of manual-therapy that’s based on the philosophy that body parts work together, rather than separately in providing their full function. This means that Osteopaths seek to understand you and the core drivers that have set you up with pain or an unresolved injury.

What does an Osteopath do?

When you come in for a session an Osteopath will spend time in your first sessions together unravelling all the details of your health concerns, they’ll then look at your body through a biomechanical lense (fancy) and then get their trusty hands into the right spots.

They’ll draw on a variety of techniques such as soft tissue, joint mobilisation, exercise prescription, dry needling and stretching.

Depending on what’s going on, they might recommend particular types of exercise, like Clinical Pilates / Exercise as a further support to your recovery and wellbeing.

In Australia Osteopaths are degree qualified health professionals and are recognised as primary healthcare practitioners due to their extensive five years of training in anatomy and physiology, pathology, medical diagnosis and osteopathic-specific techniques.

At Good Self we’re geared up to also provide care for those on Medicare Enhanced Primary Care schemes as well as WorkSafe, TAC and NDIS.
