Osteopath Bondi Junction

Are you looking for an Osteopath Bondi Junction? Dr Felicity Marguin works in Waverley, in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. She uses massage, stretching, dry needling, joint manipulation and cranial techniques.

Osteopathy is a holistic, physical therapy, which views health in terms of the whole person. Improving movement of the body and reducing tension in muscles subsequently increases blood flow and allows the body to heal itself.

The human body is a perfect synchronicity of structure and function. Pain in your back may be coming from an old ankle injury. Pain in your neck might be coming from your lower back as your body seeks to compensate for restriction in the lower back and pushes tension up the body. Being treated by osteopath unravels that chain of dysfunction from the ankle up to the lower back or from your lower back up to the neck.

Osteopaths take a full medical history and ask questions about work and lifestyle to figure out what is impacting on you health. Postural correction, addressing historical injuries and advising on lifestyle habits are all part of what osteopaths do. Dr Felicity Marguin of Waverley will help you achieve optimal health.

The Rule of the Artery generally guides osteopathic treatment. This means that if a patient’s circulation, including blood and lymph, are at the best they can be the patient can be a healthy and balanced person. Dr Felicity Marguin Osteopath Bondi Junction uses “hands on” techniques to optimise circulation, and consequently well-being, through maximising the body’s capacity to heal itself.

Biomechanics are fundamental to an osteopaths understanding of the physical body of a patient. Compromised biomechanics can be a result of misalignment of the musculoskeletal component of the the body. If the musculoskeletal system is not at its best then all the other systems of the body may be compromised, including circulatory, neurological, lymphatic, respiratory and digestive systems. Dr Felicity Marguin, Osteopath in Waverley can help to realign these systems into balance.
