Somatherapy is a form of manual therapy which is part of osteopathy. It focuses on biomechanics and body movements, aiming to restore and maintain an optimal internal environment. Using this therapy, the body heals itself more efficiently. Patients will then retrieve their health while being more comfortable in their daily activities.
Somatherapeuths use their hands to detect areas of dysfunction in the human body and treat it accordingly. Treatment is based on a variety of techniques, some of which include soft tissue massage, stretching, muscle energy, and gentle low-amplitude mobilizations. The latter encompasses extremely gentle movements, like commonly known cranial treatment.
The first time you see a Somatherapist, your appointment will be longer than usual, since a thorough case history will need to be done, based on your medical history. This may provide us with vital information on eventual more serious illness, or indicate a contraindication to the treatment. In such cases, you will be referred to your general patrician for further investigations.
