What is reflexology?

Reflexology involves the manual stimulation of reflex points that correspond with specific parts the body. Through the application of gentle pressure on these reflex points, reflexology is able to target specific issues and promote natural wellness. As a holistic approach, reflexology looks at the body as a system, working with the body’s self-healing processes to help reach a state of balance. Reflexology is a long-established therapy with a history that goes back thousands of years. To learn about the history of reflexology, check out this brief summary from the University of Minnesota.

If you are looking for a non-invasive and natural therapy that is complementary to other treatments, consider reflexology. It is a great solution for clients looking for a gentle approach that doesn’t interfere with any other treatment they may be receiving. Reflexology can be adapted to suit each client’s individual needs and is also an excellent option for those who are simply looking to release everyday tension.

Vancouver Osteopathy: Treatment of IBS?

| Categorized: Broadway Wellness News.

IBS and Vancouver Osteopathy

What is IBS? 

IBS is a chronic disorder that can involve the small and/or large intestines of the digestive tract. More specifically, irritable bowel syndrome presents with motility problems (how the bowel moves contents through our intestines). Motility problems can be either too fast (diarrhea/loose stools), too slow (constipation), or a combination of the two. In addition, irritable bowel syndrome affects how your brain interprets signals from the nerves in the bowel. This can result in abdominal pain, bloating, and/or anxiety.

IBS and how Vancouver Osteopathy can Help:

Vancouver Osteopathy practitioners at Broadway Wellness use a hands-on therapy which aims to restore the function of the body by treating the cause of the imbalance. Its philosophy was founded on the belief that the body is naturally capable of healing itself. Practitioners work through manipulations of the tissues to enhance this natural ability of self-regulation and healing.  The goal of an osteopathic treatment, in relation to IBS, is to improve proper communication between the gut and brain is both restored and maintained.

With this in mind, diet, supplements, cognitive, talk, and somatic therapies are receiving more recognition as highly effective approaches.  Also, Craniosacral therapy is an increasingly common approach.

What is craniosacral therapy?  It is the gentle manipulation of the cranial bones and associated membranes.  This creates movement, space, and increased circulation to the brain and cranium.  Restrictions, limiting circulation and movement, can be present from previous injury.   Examples include concussion, whiplash, and birth trauma.   If something structural is a main factor, it’s important to treat the structure.  Otherwise the efforts through diet, and therapy may be limited in their effectiveness.
