At Holistic Bodyworks, our passion for health extends beyond your body. Our team “build you up” physically, mentally and emotionally. We combine Osteopathy with other holistic health modalities like Remedial Massage, Myotherapy and more to create individual treatments in line with holistic health principles.
Live a healthy and boisterous life, no matter your age.
The team at Holistic Bodyworks are dedicated to helping seniors stay active, healthy and independent well into old age.
One part of the body which is greatly affected by the aging process is the musculoskeletal system. As the body ages, many muscles, tissues and bone structures deteriorate and lose their elasticity. Additionally, aging also impacts your body’s natural self-healing abilities.
Holistic health treatments such as Osteopathy, Clinical Pilates and Naturopathy may be able to relieve these symptoms and can help you maintain a robust body.
Our knowledgeable team help you improve balance, strength and flexibility. In many cases, we may even be able to prevent the onset of age-related pain, allowing you to remain healthy and active well into your golden years.
Our team of experienced practitioners build you a tailor-made routine that combines physical Osteopathic treatments with dietary and lifestyle recommendations.
In addition to assisting with injuries and aches, these treatments can be employed proactively to help maintain your body’s innate ability to self-heal and improving your resistance to age-related conditions.
Your state of mind directly affects motivation, mental clarity, and happiness. In particular, ongoing stress and anxiety can compromise your immune system and increase your risk of cardiovascular disease.
Osteopathy is more than just physical manipulation and treatment. In addition to physical wellbeing, our experienced osteopaths also provide you with tools to unwind and more effectively deal with mental stressors.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) suggests that issues such as cholesterol, obesity and blood pressure are up to three times more prevalent in those with significant emotional distress.
By helping you lead a healthier, happier, pain-free life, holistic treatments helps improve your emotional wellbeing. In many cases, patients leave experiencing an improved outlook, and feeling more soothed and in-control after engaging a holistic health specialist.
