Modern osteopathy is continually evolving in response to all the scientific research and development behind it. However, as osteopaths develop their clinical expertise, their treatment style will evolve towards a more personalised view of how our bodies work and how to treat the various dysfunctions that affect our bodies.

There are various styles of osteopathic treatment and while some osteopaths will take a holistic view of all, others will concentrate on only one or two. In the case of our main osteopath - Moisés Ferrández - he has studied each of the different styles and uses them in integration, depending on the dysfunctions that each patient may present.

Types of Osteopathy

Structural Osteopathy
This is the most common approach to osteopathic treatment and is the foundation upon which modern training is based. It is where the osteopath will use different manual techniques to affect the musculoskeletal system:Joint mobilisation Articular manipulation Muscular, ligamentous and fascial release Stretching the shortened tissues Strengthening of weak structures And many more. The treatment effect can reach into the body and help the nervous system, blood supply or organ function.
Visceral Osteopathy
Visceral Osteopathy is an expansion of the general principles of osteopathy which includes a special understanding of the organs, blood vessels and nerves of the body (the viscera) This approach looks at the relationship between the physical structure of the body and the organs, such as the digestive tract or respiratory system. It´s aim is to relieve imbalances and restrictions in the interconnections between the motions of all the organs and structures of the body. Through the stresses imposed by poor posture, diet or lifestyle pressures, the organs can build areas of tension which can then lead to referred ‘viscero-somatic’ pain. One example of this is the intense groin pain created by an acute kidney infection. In this case treatment over the area of pain may be ineffective whereas direct manipulation of the kidney may stimulate the healing response needed to relieve the pain. Visceral treatment can aid movement of the digestive tract and good function of abdominal organs as well as the lungs, which will directly affect at the way our organism function´s as a whole Visceral Osteopathy is commonly used for:Swallowing difficulties * Digestive problems * Endometriosis * Colics * Breathing dysfunctions (Asthma) * Incontinence * Back and neck pain * Ribs and thoracic cage pain * Circulation problems And many other conditions
Cranial Osteopathy
This is a more subtle approach which involves a gentle ‘hold’ of the patient to interact with more subtle energies and the body’s fluid dynamics. Tiny physiological movements in the bones in the head and face are vital for health, and cranial osteopathy can focus on any obstructions to these microscopic movements that may have been caused by trauma or injury.Cranial Osteopathy works with the body’s involuntary mechanisms, helping to restore a calming balance to natural bio-rhythms by means of a gentle “hold” of the patient. It encourages the release of stresses and tensions throughout the body. It is common for us to feel that when we experience physical or emotional stress, our body tissues tend to tighten up.Although our bodies are generally able to adapt to stress at the time, a lasting strain may remain. Any remaining tension may be held in the body and can restrict its free movement. As time goes by, the body may find it more and more difficult to cope with accumulated stresses and eventually symptoms may develop. Over time, the body may find it increasingly difficult to cope with the accumulated stresses and eventually symptoms may appear.

What our patients say about us?

    I wanted to thank the great team at the Osteozenia clinic who treated me and my 2 month old son. We went to Moisés, the physio because my baby had problems with gas and colic, the treatment was great and left him relaxed and like another baby. He now sleeps better at night and no longer complains. I have also gone myself to train and improve my posture and strengthen my pelvic floor with personal trainer Christina Méndez. It has improved me a lot after pregnancy and childbirth. The way of working, not only physically but also neurologically has helped me to be more aware of my movements and posture. She is very authentic and lets you know that you are capable of much more than you think. Thank you I recommend you 100%!

    Incredible osteopath! The only person, despite going to numerous osteopaths and chiropractors in 3 different countries, who was able to relieve my back pain. I had signs of improvement after the first visit and felt almost no more pain after a couple of times. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

    I have a long experience with various therapists and different types of treatments. Moises is the first to see the whole picture and find the cause of my pain. The treatment I received at Osteozenia is the best I have ever had. I will come back whenever I have more problems. I also like that Osteozenia offers other treatments to cover all the needs of body, mind and soul.

    I had a problem with sciatica and immediately went to Moises on the recommendation of a colleague. My pain was unbearable and I could hardly move. In the first session I immediately noticed a huge improvement and with proper rest and a second treatment at the clinic, my problem has completely disappeared. I treat myself periodically when I feel any pain in my back and I am finally managing to deal with my sciatica problems that I have had for so many years without a solution. Moisés is for me the best professional I have found and the only one with whom I have noticed a real improvement in my problems. Thank you Osteozenia Clinic, well deserved recognition.

    Highly recommended. We went with my 2 week old baby because it was difficult for him to do his needs easily and it was a great experience, the ease, confidence and professionalism that Moisés has with babies gives a lot of peace of mind, he explains everything he is doing to the baby and they relax in his hands. I also treated myself because after the effort of childbirth the body undergoes many changes and it left me as good as new. Most important of all, it delivers results in a single session.

    This is my third session with Moisés (osteopath) and I couldn't be more delighted! I suffer from vertigo and since I've been with him I haven't had any again. He also treated my sciatica and since then zero pain! I recommend it 100%!!! The clinic in general is wonderful and the girl at the reception is a sweetheart.

    For me, Moises is one of the best osteopaths in Orihuela Costa. He treated my pyramidal muscle injury, he knows how to listen to your body and treats the injury in a global way that doesn't just focus on that area. The whole team of people who work in his clinic are amazing and the human quality they have is of the best. Thank you

    After searching and searching and thanks to several recommendations that I was given, I decided to go to Osteozenia, since then it has been a before and after in the back pain that I was experiencing daily, in just one session it helped me to detect my problem, solve it and help me to work to avoid relapse. I am thankful to have found Moises, a great professional and very attentive to his clients. I recommend it 100%.
