Naturopathic Manipulation (Bodywork) often works in conjuction with other treatments such as Lifestyle Counseling and Modification
What is Naturopathic Manipulation?
Often in conjunction with other treatments, bodywork uses a variety of systematic movements to help heal musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. Manipulation of bone alignment is used, similar to both osteopathic and chiropractic adjustments. One technique in particular, "strain/counter-strain", is very gentle and effective, especially for pain and injuries of the neck and upper back.
Lifestyle Counseling and Modification
The cornerstones of Naturopathic philosophy are prevention and responsibility for one's own health. Naturopathic treatments often are based on assessing risk factors connected to the patient's lifestyle, diet, and environment. Each of these factors is taken under consideration when developing a treatment plan with a client. The goal is to remove obstacles to the patient's own state of optimal health.
