What is Registered Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is a clinically-oriented healthcare option that helps alleviate the discomfort associated with every day occupational stresses, muscular over-use and many chronic pain conditions.
What is Osteopathy?
The history of osteopathy goes back about 150 years and could be simply seen as a manual approach that treats the body as a whole.
Osteopaths believe that all body systems interrelate and depend upon one another for good health. Osteopaths treat the entire body, including muscles, joints, viscera and cranial sphere.
In osteopathy, the therapist will utilize a holistic approach that not only focuses on the area of pain but includes an examination of the entire body to discover possible causes for the problem. For example, if you see an Osteopath for a sore knee, they will also look at your ankle, pelvis, and back.
