Turns out, osteopathy was nothing like I imagined.
Although it’s not supported by strong scientific evidence, Elisa explains it as a great tool to, ‘gently affect over-excited nervous systems by decreasing tension and improving natural relaxation and ease in the tissues.’
Elisa then asked me to stand up so she could ‘feel’ where my body needed work.
After feeling around on my back and neck, she explained that the massage element of the treatment would have to take the second place, as there were some serious issues that needed to be addressed in my digestive system (funnily enough, I’ve since been diagnosed with mild crohns disease).
Elisa mostly held her hands with a firm, static pressure over my stomach – and do you know what? It worked. For whatever reason, my pain in these areas eased. I then had a brief reflexology massage while she explained a little bit about Chinese and Ayurvedic treatments.
