Osteopathic Manual Practitioner
Caring immensely for the comfort and care of others, Sheelagh is passionate about her work and her connection with every one of her clients. Her journey into studying the capacities and complexities of the body mind complex began 15years ago and turned toward Osteopathy after struggling with her own chronic physical pain and stress. After one treatment she was hooked - and drawn to the philosophy and work of Osteopathy’s founder, Dr. Andrew Taylor Still (1828-1917), a Physician whose approach of medicine focused on the unity and integration of the body as a whole.
Osteopathy aims to improve function and order to all systems of the body – musculoskeletal, circulatory, digestive, respiratory and nervous systems. Encouraging the natural healing currents of the entire mindbody organism, and allowing nature to do the rest.
Each treatment is designed to improve function and vitality by reducing pain, alleviating constrictions, obstructions, pressure and by helping to restore mobility and vascular vitality to all parts.
Sheelagh is a graduate of the National Academy of Osteopathy, a member of the National Manual Osteopathic Society, and continues her studies in manual therapies and integrative care. She joined the 2016 class of the Whole Health Medicine Institute in California, led by Dr. Lissa Rankin (MD), and has always revered the body’s innate capacity toward recovery, healing and regulation.
She has a special interest in women’s general health, mind-body integration and loves to hang out at the intersection of science and spirituality.
