Manual therapy is used to restore, maintain, or improve function and movement in the body. The treatments vary in nature, techniques and approach but the understanding of what creates healing is the same. Common to all these approaches is the fact that the therapist’s hands are used as the primary work tool for examination and treatment. The absolute importance of human touch is very well-documented and contributes greatly to well-being. It is amply proven that it helps balance and regulate the nervous system, increase circulation and reduce pain.
Manual therapy increases body awareness and can become the first step to getting in touch with your inner resources. A bridge is built into the possibilities of the mind by opening, moving and expanding the physical body. This creates an opportunity to see yourself and your challenges from a new perspective.
Our Wellness clinic offers various types of well-proven manual treatments, including both complementary and traditional approaches. We also offer private yoga therapy and breathwork that will address every aspect of your health in an interconnected way.
Our manual therapies
Osteopathy is a gentle and effective form of treatment that primarily treats problems related to the musculoskeletal system. Through manual treatment and guidance, the osteopath promotes your body’s balance by restoring its natural state of health. The basic principle of the osteopathic approach is the observation of how bones, joints, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue and internal organs function as a whole. Based on this, the osteopath obtains information from the whole body to find the primary cause of your ailments.
The first meeting with one of our osteopaths is based on a thorough medical history, manual examination and orthopedic tests, during which the osteopath acknowledges the connections between physical, mental and social factors that affect your health. The treatment is safe and individualized - it is suitable for clients of all ages.
Cranial osteopathy, also referred to as biodynamic osteopathy, is a subtle and gentle form of osteopathic treatment. The philosophy at the base of this approach recognizes that our natural state is health and that the ability to heal is inherent in all of us. Provided with the right signals, the body will balance and correct itself.
Despite the name, cranial osteopaths do not only treat your head. During the treatment, our qualified osteopaths use soft treatment techniques to release stress and tension in the head, neck, spine, sacrum and tailbone. It is an effective and relaxing treatment that can be used for many different issues. Cranial osteopathy is suitable for people of all ages, including for children.
Chiropractors are trained to diagnose, treat, manage and prevent disorders from the bones, joints and muscles that all support the body. The theory is that proper alignment of the body's musculoskeletal structure, particularly the spine, will enable the body to heal itself without surgery or medication.
Chiropratic treatment includes various manual techniques such as hands-on spinal manipulation (adjustments), as well as information and guidance so that you can understand the nature of your symptoms better. Preventive and rehabilitative measures, such as training and exercises, will be given when necessary.
In case of suspicion of an underlying serious illness, nerve damage, or any other pathology, the chiropractor will refer you to a specialist or other healthcare professional for further examination and follow-up before treatment.
Acupuncture is part of the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with roots as far back as 2000 years. Thin sterile needles are used to stimulate the body ́s meridian system. The meridians are mainly found along the muscles, connective tissue and nervous system. By stimulating these specific areas, the acupuncturist supports your body to maintain the dynamic balance (homeostasis) which is required for optimal and vibrant health. Acupuncture is a medical system that sees and treats the whole person - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Finding the cause of the symptoms is also an important part of the treatment, as well as giving lifestyle advice so that you can make some adjustments and actively contribute to a faster and long-lasting progress. You will receive individual diagnostics, treatments and follow-ups that are adapted to your individual needs.
The effect of acupuncture is well documented and is a relevant and effectful treatment for a wide range of different conditions, as well as for preventive care.
Physiotherapy works with your body and movement to promote good health and function. During the treatment, the physiotherapist uses various methods, techniques and exercises, in addition to giving you information and guidance that is specifically tailored to you and your body. The goal is that you will be able to develop, regain, or maintain your ability to function in an optimal way through increased awareness and empowerment. Our physiotherapists welcome and treat individuals of all ages, helping you to manage pain, develop healthy coping strategies and prevent disease. We collaborate with other health professionals when needed, so that you can feel safe and taken care of.
Massage can have a number of health-promoting benefits on the body and mind, far beyond the most well-known ones such as reduction of muscle tension and related ailments. When the body dissolves tension, it is like a weight is lifted and you get an increased feeling of lightness and well-being. The treatment affects the whole body and contributes to it generally working better. Equally important, massage has a positive effect on self-esteem and can resolve emotional blockages and increase mental clarity.
