Sandy Antunes Osteopathy

At Sandy Antunes Osteopathy, we treat the person behind the symptoms. Our hands-on treatment looks to address the underlying causes of your health issues.

Our Osteopathic Philosophy is simple: We believe that the human body has the inherent ability to heal itself when obstructions to health are removed. As such, we try and facilitate that natural healing process by listening to and understanding each patient’s particular needs and developing an individualized treatment plan that along with your specific home care enhances your results. With realities such as the demand for optimal health care that can address the underlying cause of the problem and not just treat symptoms, there is an increasing interest in osteopathic treatment and its approach to maintaining health and preventing disease. Osteopathy is a philosophy, an art and a science based on the application of sound principles. Osteopathic treatment is not just a set of techniques. Osteopathy considers the person as a whole, including external factors such as stress, exercise, diet and environment in an approach to achieving and maintaining good health. It recognizes that all the systems of the body are interrelated and interdependent, and that disturbances in one system can affect the others. It applies these principles with a sound and thorough knowledge of anatomy and physiology. An osteopathic treatment integrates diagnosis (assessment) which reflects the condition of the body and manipulation to restore structural freedom in the tissues, biomechanical imbalance, and enhance fluid flow throughout the body, therefore creating the optimal setting for healing to occur. “Osteopathy should not be defined by its manual techniques but rather, by the application of its philosophy”.

Classical Osteopathy. #bodyadjustment

⁉️Someone was asking, what is the meaning of this Logo in our t-shirts?. Body is kept inside the rectangle because there is one body, one person, one structure which is unique. However, Adjustment is kept one step in the rectangle, one step outside. This is because Adjustment is specific to each patient, responds to the Osteopathic Principles but it can come in many different ways. This openess in thought and application is what makes Body Adjustment so effective in all circumstances. Body Adjustment is not a technique, neither a receipe to treat, it is Classical Osteopathy. Let the Osteopathic Principles lead your treatment.

Institute of Classical Osteopathy

John Wernhan used to say: “you must remember that Osteopathy is an art form and is no easy path. It is difficult to teach, difficult to learn and difficult to practice. Remember that it is not enough saying that you have succeeded in making the patient feel better, what I want to see is that the lesions are corrected and the body is made a whole. Reducing symptoms is relatively easy, but restoring the organism and increasing its functioning in order to establish permanent health, that is another issue”.

This is why in our postgraduate course we aim for quality of teaching

World Midwives

In his writings, Leboyer didn't stop at denouncing what he had seen in the delivery room. He dedicated his life to coming up with innovations to make childbirth a more pleasant and memorable experience for all those involved - including the baby.

Perhaps his most important contribution to the field of obstetrics - for which he will go down in history - is his assertion that a baby has "rights" during birth, and that these rights must be taken into account as much as those of the mother.

Thanks, Free the Flow (Renee Pilgrim) for asking a lot of bloody questions, and posting this!

I love talking about all things related to menstruation!

One of the first questions I ask my clients, apart from what day they are on their cycle, is the colour of their menstrual blood. I also want to know if there are any premenstrual symptoms, how heavy the flow is and if there is any pain. As a Chinese medicine practitioner, this information helps me with the diagnosis of my client and allows me to work out the best treatment to give them i.e.: acupuncture, herbs and dietary advice. Our periods are a snapshot in time of what is happening internally! Periods are universally taboo, but I am all for embracing this miracle we are blessed with and breaking the stigma.
A little tip is to do as little as possible for the first 3 days of bleeding. I know it can be very difficult, but postpone as much as you can and the rest of your menstrual cycle will thank you for it.

Embrace your period.

"An osteopath is a human engineer, who should understand all the laws governing his engine and thereby master disease." - Andrew Taylor Still

Hi, meet Andrew Taylor Still! ✨🙋‍♂️

Working as a physician in the 1800s, AT Still witnessed sometimes harmful and ineffective practices (including giving patients arsenic and opium!) resulting in much suffering and death. The loss of his three children to spinal meningitis cemented his focus on discovering the root of disease rather than curing symptoms.

AT Still pioneered the concept of "wellness'' and treating illness from a context of the whole body. He proposed that the alignment and balance of the musculoskeletal system directly influenced the body's ability to function and heal itself via it's relationship to blood and nerve flow.

And thus osteopathy was born! 🙌 His success in treating patients gained much popularity and many people became interested in learning his methods. There are now schools all over the world teaching osteopathic medicine with our numbers growing every year.

Osteopathy continues to prove itself as a SAFE, GENTLE and EFFECTIVE form of treatment and we look forward to telling you more over the coming week! #OsteopathyWorks #OAW2019

What is Osteopathy?

“It is a scientific knowledge of anatomy and physiology in the hands of a person of intelligence and skill, who can apply that knowledge to the use of man when sick or wounded by strains, shocks, fall, or mechanical derangement or injury of any kind of the body.” A.T. Still, Philosophy and Principles of Osteopathy, p.18.

The word “general” in the term “general treatment” does not mean, however, vague or unspecific treatment. Tactile tissue analysis demands the most precise diagnosis to determine accurate treatment. Neverthless the whole body is examined as well as treated as an anatomical and physiological unit, each part according to its peculiar needs as well as in relation to the rest of the body. MW

Funny how a simple fart can lead to so much good! Unless you grew up with hearing difficulties, it can be tough to fully understand how hard it is to be deaf. Simple things that we take for granted are processed completely differently for those with hearing impairments. Like farts, for example. First-grade teacher Anna Trupiano found this out when....
