Osteopathy recognizes the importance of the link between the structure of the human body and the way it functions. Osteopaths focus on the body’s skeleton and joint function along with the underlying muscles, soft tissue and internal organs. Using gentle stretching and mobilizing techniques as well as manipulating joints, an osteopath works with the body to create the perfect conditions to facilitate the healing process.
Treatment usually consists of a combination of soft-tissue releasing techniques, and some specific adjustments affecting joints and soft-tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments). Advice can also be given on self-help treatments and exercise.
Avni completed her 5 year training at the British School of Osteopathy in 2004. She went on to study at the renowned Osteopathic Centre for Children (now Foundation for Paediatric Osteopathy) for an MSc in Paediatric Osteopathy. This helped to integrate her interest in movement such as dance, yoga, gyrotonic and pilates with embryological and developmental processes.
