What I Treat
The principles of osteopathy states that ill health and “disease” can be due to structural or mechanical strain on the body tissues. If overtime there is interference with blood or nerve supply to various tissues or vital organs of the body. This lowering of energy renders the body to a “disease” process.
Osteopathy is primarily concerned with improving structure and function of the of the bodys’ framework in order to promote health and wellbeing.
Khalids’ approach is to treat the body as a unit , find the cause and address it and just treat the symptoms and by doing so is encouraging the body’s natural ability to repair and strengthen itself. His treatment aims to remove strain pattern from the tissues of the body.
