Osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM) means hands-on medical care where both diagnosis and treatment are carried out with the hands.
Shock, trauma, injury, or the many mental and physical stresses of living in this busy world can cause a variety of negative symptoms in the body-mind. Helping to release, relax and encourage the healing of these tensions is crucial.
Through osteopathy, your body is helped to release tension, facilitating the movement of lymph which is vital to health. Where lymph is not moving you will likely experience pain, tenderness, and inflammation. Osteopathy can help encourage this process.
With hands-on osteopathic medicine, supplemented by Dr. Teves' simple, gentle Full Body Breathing method, you will feel increased vitality and wholeness.
Many patients who practice this breathing method have experienced improvements in their general sense of ease in their body, a decrease of inflammatory pain, and relief from other symptoms simply by breathing more effectively and consciously. Try it out - most people are amazed at how easy it is to breathe better, and feel better.
Appointments available in Ithaca Wednesday and Thursdays, and by special appointment. Hours in Binghamton on Tuesdays.
