How Osteopathy can help

Osteopathic manual treatment has had a tremendous impact on my overall health and quality of life over the past 30 years!

Through the correction of imbalances in my body, I have experienced relief from sinus headaches, digestive disturbances, along with freedom from pain and improved mobility resulting from a variety of sport-related musculoskeletal injuries. In addition, I will never forget that one treatment years after childbirth halted bladder infections caused by scar tissue from my c-sections and stopped my need for recurrent antibiotics. In short, I truly have benefitted from the holistic approach osteopathic practitioners like Dr Atily Gunaratne undertake. Their extensive knowledge of the interrelation between the different body systems is impressive. As a prior physiotherapist and clinician researcher, I have been baffled at times to explain how it works but appreciate that the practice includes both art and science and truly complements other traditional medical therapies.
