What is Osteopathy

At Love Your Bones Osteopaths we have quoted below what the Government has announced this week….
The Government has announced that New Zealand can safely move out of Alert Level 4 lockdown at 11.59pm on Monday 27 April.

“We will hold at Alert Level 3 for 2 weeks, before Cabinet reviews how we are tracking and makes further decisions on 11 May.”

With this in mind we are hoping to re-open on Wednesday 13th May 2020.
As of today we will take bookings commencing from this date by
phone / text: 021 303 991
email: info@loveyourbones.co.nz
online bookings : https://www.facebook.com/loveyourbonesosteopathy/

If our start date changes due to Alert Level 3 being extended we will reschedule your appointment.

In the meantime telehealth consultations are available by phone 021 303 991 with a follow up clinic visit when permitted.

Fingers crossed we can get back to a “new” normal routine soon.

The team at Love Your Bones have been having weekly zoom meetings and all agree we are very much looking forward to seeing you all again. Please stay safe and protect your bubble.

Kind Regards Kate and the Team

Osteopaths are primary health care providers that recognise that the structure of the body affects how we function on a day-to-day basis.

Osteopathy is a totally natural form of manual medicine, which encourages healing, by focusing on how all the systems within the body communicate with each other.

Osteopaths use a wide range of evaluative techniques to diagnose areas of dysfunction specific to each patient. Osteopathic treatment uses techniques such as stretching and soft tissue massage alongside mobilisation and manipulation of specific joints and soft tissues using direct or indirect techniques.

Both Kate and Martin are registered ACC treatment providers, which means you do not require a referral from your GP to receive ACC covered treatment. Some private health insurers also cover osteopathic treatment.

What do Osteopaths treat?
Neck, back and joint pain
Shoulder injuries including rotator cuff problems and frozen shoulder
Sports Injuries – ankles/knees/shoulders/hip
Postural Issues
Occupational injuries
Pregnancy related pain – pre and post
Muscular imbalances + strength issues

Kate and Martin both treat babies for problems such as colic, reflux, latching problems, sleeping issues and general fretfulness.
