The Functional Osteopath
What is Somatic Renewal?
Analysis: The techniques used in for Somatic Renewal allow your body’s ability to be analysed and treated in a 3 dimensional way, which is more reflective of how we actually move. Your vestibular, proprioceptive and cerebellar function will also be assessed to determine neural integrity. Each session will build upon what was done before, always with consideration of the pace your body allows. More advanced techniques can be applied to challenge the body when it is ready.
- Therapeutic pain education is recognised as a treatment modality in and of itself. This will include lessons on how the mind and body influence each other, the affect of unresolved trauma on the body and mind, how the brain manifests pain and how to manage your condition. You will learn many different ways to improve your vagal tone to promote recovery in your body and brain. Therapeutic education has been shown to have better outcomes in pain reduction when integrated with other treatments, rather than single therapies alone.
- A synthesis of all the manual techniques and skills I have learned including cranial and classical osteopathy, be-activated neuromuscular and vestibular techniques and either medical or auricular acupuncture, with consent. The techniques are personalised to what I feel your body needs and each session will build on what we have done before. You will receive tools to learn how to strengthen your body’s deficits in between sessions.
