Why does osteopathy reduce stress?

Osteopathic manipulations at a physiological level stimulate some mechanical receptors present throughout our body, sending signals to the central nervous system.

This can influence muscle tone and the response of the autonomic nervous system, helping to regulate stress levels, but not only…

Osteopathy aims to improve blood and lymphatic circulation, facilitating the transport of nutrients and the elimination of toxins, which contributes to the remodulation of the response of the autonomic nervous system, which can go from a “fight or flight” phase to “ digest and rest and recharge,” with changes in breathing patterns, more efficient digestion and deeper sleep.

What do you think about it? Have you ever felt these sensations after an osteopathic treatment?
