Holistic method to preserve natural beauty and function of the body without the use of toxic or invasive procedures. Emphasis is placed on supporting the inner workings of the body, improving function and health of all organ systems.
Osteoaesthetcs, as the name implies, combines principles of osteopathy and aesthetics. While aesthetic treatments imply administration of topical therapies to the skin designed to improve its appearance, osteoaesthetics is directed towards improving the inner body function, which as a result improves the appearance. A face is not separate from the rest of the body. The body is a whole. To work holistically on the face it is important to also work on the body. Osteoaesthetics creates harmony and alignment within the whole body which activates natural rejuvenative capacity to slow down ageing.
Osteoaesthetic view on aesthetic concerns
Take for example puffy eyes (eye bags). Aesthetic approach is directed towards working on the eye area directly using topical treatments such as cooling agents, therapies such as laser resurfacing, filler and lastly surgery. Osteoaesthetics looks at puffy eyes as a visible symptom of the underlying changes within the body. It can be that the kidneys are functioning poorly, or that something is constricting and preventing free flow of fluids throughout the body, letting it accumulate in various areas including the eye area. The aim of osteoaesthetics is to identify where the inner imbalances are, and resolve the cause of the symptoms (in this case the eye bags).
Osteoaesthetics restores not just the natural beauty but also health and overall well-being.
Using osteopathic principles, the whole body is assessed step-by-step. The function of the musculoskeletal system, visceral organs, neuromuscular system, peripheral vascular system are all evaluated to identify the underlying causes of aesthetic as well as health concerns. Depending on the client’s concerns and problem areas identified during assessment, various manual therapy techniques are used on muscles, ligaments, fascia and bones.
Osteoaesthetics brings Physical, Emotional and Energetic Balance
When physical balance is achieved and blockages are released, what follows next is emotional balance and improvement in energy levels. The flow of life’s force (energy) within the body is brought back to harmony, which makes the physical and emotional aspects of the body resilient to stress from internal and external influences. For example, you may find that your sleep improves after therapy. Great sleep supports recovery and rejuvenation of the body, so you start waking up feeling refreshed and energized. Similarly, if you are experiencing physical pain (ex. Joint pain), your body spends physical and emotional energy on recovery. By bringing back the physical balance, you will find emotional harmony as well as greater energy levels. You will feel more grounded and true to your nature.
