    What is Osteopathy?

    Osteopathy is a gentle, non-invasive diagnosis and treatment approach to the muscular-skeletal system. Osteopaths work with their hands directly on the patient`s body, using a variety of non-invasive treatment techniques.It is complementary to and supportive of traditional medicine.

    Osteopathy is a safe and natural treatment, which is tailored to patients' individual needs.

    An American doctor, Dr Andrew Taylor Still developed osteopathy in the 1850`s. Today many different techniques and treatment approaches within osteopathy have evolved. Treatments are designed to heal the specific complaint as well as to improve general wellbeing .

    Avraham Gundle uses an eclectic approach that incorporates many different techniques including soft tissue massage, cranial-sacral therapy and gentle manipulation where appropriate.

    Osteopathy is the first complementary health care profession that has been accorded statutory regulation in England by the Osteopathy Act of 1993. Avraham is a fully qualified osteopath and is registered both with the General Osteopathic Council in England and the Israeli Osteopathic Association.



    How does osteopathy work?

    Osteopathy is concerned with the inter-relationship between the structure of the body (muscular-skeletal system) and the way the whole body functions. Many factors may affect the functioning of the muscular-skeletal system. These could include disorders at birth, developmental issues, injury, disease and misuse of the body. Osteopathy addresses these holistically.

    Where possible, Avraham works to treat the cause of the problem and not just the symptom. Treatment is based on stimulating the body's own innate healing potential.


    Cranial Osteopathy

    Cranial osteopathy works with the gentle tide-like rhythms that exist in the body which produce movements that can be felt in the tissues. Correcting imbalances within these rhythms helps to restore health and vitality.


    What conditions does osteopathy benefit?

    Osteopathy benefits a broad range of conditions including headaches and migraines, back and neck pain, joint strain, pregnancy related pain, arthritis and osteoporosis, and sporting injuries. Osteopathy benefits people of all ages - from infants through to the elderly.

However, in some cases there may be a temporary exacerbation of symptoms prior to the complete recovery.
