What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy takes a holistic, whole-body approach to healthcare. It uses manual 'hands-on' techniques to improve circulation and correct altered biomechanics, without the use of drugs.
Osteopathic treatment gently and safely eases the positioning of muscles and bones back into their proper alignment. Your body is then able to move more efficiently and effectively due to reduced muscular tension, which also reduces the chance of motion related pain and injury. Correcting the body's structural alignment improves its functioning allowing the body to self heal and self correct naturally.
There are many health benefits that can be achieved through osteopathic treatments; muscle and joint pain relief, quicker healing after illness or injury and improved quality of sleep and sense of well being.
During a treatment, I look, listen and feel to piece together your unique health history. I put the information together like a puzzle, to address the underlying cause of the problem instead of just chasing the symptoms.
A key feature to maintaining your health and wellness is having good mobility. Osteopathic treatments help to improve and maintain your joints and muscles healthy range of motion to help you to stay active, healthy and happy!
A little bit about me...
Hi, my name is Adrianne. I first discovered the healing power of osteopathy while searching for a pain relief solution for my daughter Ava. The osteopathic treatment was gentle and non invasive and had amazing results! I was so impressed that I decided to attend the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy to study osteopathy myself.
I believe that our body works as a unit and every part is interconnected. Proper body alignment improves all aspects of our health by allowing the body to self heal.
We can take care of our health in many ways : by staying physically active, reducing stress, good sleep habits, eating healthy foods and drinking lots of water.
I am a life long resident of Smithville. Growing up, I enjoyed being outside and playing on many different sports teams. My adventures and activities resulted in numerous injuries throughout the years, including concussions and migraine headaches. Osteopathic care has helped me continue doing the things I enjoy.
In my free time, I love to be outdoors as much as possible! I enjoy gardening, hiking, reading, puzzles and spending time with my family and our Aussie, Jax.

I was told that I needed glasses to help correct some muscular issues with my eyes. After a few osteopathic treatments, I felt great and my eyes self corrected. I didn't need glasses anymore!
