Revi uses gentle and targeted osteopathic treatment techniques encouraging the body to heal itself by removing restrictions imposed on the body by both internal and external conditions.
Reduce stress: Stress can be caused by trauma and a busy lifestyle. Stress can weaken the immune system, increase blood pressure, cause IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and headaches. It can also affect posture and digestion.
Address headaches and migraines: headaches and migraines can be caused by muscle tightness, work ergonomics, trauma and hormonal changes.
Alleviate neck and back pain: neck and back pain can be caused by injury to muscles, ligaments or vertebrae which can be associated with either an active or sedentary lifestyle.
Ease muscle tightness and soreness: muscle tightness and soreness can occur due to exercise or any activity the body is not used to performing.
Improve mobility, strength and well-being: Compromised mobility affects an individual’s lifestyle, resulting in a restricted ability to perform day-to-day tasks.
Decrease symptoms associated with degenerative disease: e.g. osteoarthritis. Degenerative disease can occur due to lifestyle choices or bodily wear and tear.
Relieve the symptoms associated with chronic illness: Living with chronic illness takes a great toll on the body, as it is functioning under stressful conditions. The body is not able to use its resources to heal itself which can result in a worsening of the symptoms.
Reduce swelling and inflammation: Swelling and inflammation can be caused by compromised lymphatic drainage and circulation. This can result in a reduction of normal nutrient supply to and waste removal from the tissues.
Improve breathing: Breathing can be compromised by respiratory disease, muscle strain, pain, stress or poor posture thus disallowing the respiratory system to maintain normal levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide.
Pre- and post-operative care: osteopathic treatment promotes better health before surgery and addresses trauma and stress post operatively. This combination can reduce recovery and healing time and help the individual return to normal function.
