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”.

"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

Teacher Tells Deaf Student That Other Kids Can Hear Him Fart, and His Reaction Is Perfect

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....

Fascia Acts as a Second Nervous System Research is showing that Fascia acts as its own Nervous System.

Amazing to be a part of this incredible experience while I was at the ICO workshop in London.

To jest bardzo niepozorne zdjęcie.
Innego nie mamy, niestety.
Musicie więc na moment uruchomić wyobraźnię.
Zwizualizować sobie, że tuż przed tym i tuż po tym, jak zostało zrobione, obok było ponad 20 osób.
Z całego świata.
W absolutniej ciszy i skupieniu obserwujących naszą Alcię.
I niesamowity zabieg osteopatyczny na 3 pary rąk.

Pierwsza para rąk należała do Chrisa Campbella, jednego z najwybitniejszych osteopatów na świecie.
Druga para rąk należała do Santosh, która jest Alciową osteopatką w Londynie. I która zorganizowała międzynarodowe warsztaty osteopatyczne i zaprosiła na nie Chrisa.
A trzecia para należała do Sandy, która do Londynu przyleciała aż z Kanady. I która była Alciową osteopatką podczas naszych pobytów w Toronto.
Alcia oczywiście była modelką :D

Nie uwierzylibyście, jak niepozorny był to zabieg. Trwający może 5 minut.
I jak ogromne dał efekty.
Ciężko to nawet opisać, ale wygląda na to, że każda najmniejsza umiejętność, którą Ala wypracowała przez ostatni czas, umocniła się i zintegrowała z resztą innych.
Alcia jest w super formie.
Fizycznej i psychicznej.
Aż boimy się zapeszać.
Więc napiszę krótko:
Chwilo trwaj, jesteś piękna!
