As a physiotherapist and graduate student pursuing a Master’s degree in Clinical Health Sciences, I must admit that I was skeptical about the practice of Osteopathy. I wondered if there was any scientific evidence to support this type of approach. However I had undergone medical investigations for some of my problems, which had not uncovered any solutions, and other more traditional treatment had failed to produce lasting changes. Therefore when a friend recommended Atily Gunaratne, I decided to eventually try this type of treatment.
The chief problems I was experiencing were digestive disturbances which sometimes caused heart palpitations, sinus problems with occasional headaches, and despite exercises, problems improving my upper back flexibility and overall posturing. It is now several months later and I have improved significantly. My digestion is considerably better (rarely have heartburn and burping now), the palpitations have almost gone and my overall posturing has improved. In the fall when I usually experience my worst sinus headaches from allergy season, I hardly had any headaches and I did not require any allergy medications. Overall I have an improved sense of well being. As a result of my experiences, I would highly recommend osteopathic treatment with Atily Gunaratne. In fact, I have advised several of my friends to go and they as well have found positive benefits.
