The Physical Effects of Anxiety – And How Osteopathy Can Help

How Can Osteopathy Help?

We often think of stress as an emotional problem, but it can manifest itself in a number of ways; not only having an effect on the way you feel and behave but also how your body works. Some of the most common signs of stress include:

  • Neck, shoulder and upper back pain
  • Sleeping problems
  • Loss of appetite
  • Sweating
  • Anxiousness
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Muscle tensions and pain


Osteopaths believe that regardless of what effects stress has on the body, it is intrinsically linked to the central nervous system. As all functions of the body are controlled by the nervous system, any change to the nervous system can result in illness.

By treated common symptoms of stress, like helping to improve the movement of joints and remove muscle tension, osteopaths can not only treat other symptoms that occur as a result of stress but also the route of these symptoms – the nervous system.

One of the basic beliefs that osteopathy is based upon is that the mind and body are interdependent, so by treating the body, this can have a positive effect on the mind.

When we feel overstretched by work or left feeling anxious about financial deadlines, it’s fair to say that we completely forget about the importance of good posture when our mind is on other problems. As we haunch our shoulders, this can put extra pressure on our bones and joints, leading to pain and tension, and sometimes causing previous complaints to flare up.

However, by treating these problems and releasing the tension, osteopaths can help to make patients feel much better emotionally.

Miss Universe Candidates also Use the LPG Endermolift

After undergoing intense gym sessions, events, and photoshoots, the ladies were pampered with a day of beauty treatments at Beaute Hub – MUS’ official beauty partner – two weeks ago. They were split into two groups – one went to the local spa and skincare chain’s Cuppage Plaza branch, the other visited Beaute Nails at Telok Ayer.

Registered nurse Debra Loi, was at the former, and it was her first time undergoing face lifting. Her beauty therapist used the LPG Endermolift, a machine that helps re-plump and rehydrate skin from the inside, smooth wrinkles, tighten skin, and provide a radiant skin tone.

The 24-year-old told The New Paper: “I could immediately feel the difference – my skin felt tighter. I had a more vibrant look and the fine lines around my eyes were reduced.”

After the session, she also learned how prevention was important.

Added Debra: “At my age, I thought I would not need this type of treatment, but as a part-time model and finalist in this pageant, I often have to use make-up that affects the condition of my skin.

I am glad the experience was informative as my therapist explained how beneficial the treatment was and why I should start (taking care of my skin) early.”

Everything You Need to Know About Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a drug-free, non-invasive manual therapy that aims to improve health across all body systems by manipulating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework.

What is osteopathy?

An osteopathic physician will focus on the joints, muscles, and spine. Treatment aims to positively affect the body’s nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems.

Manual medicine means that both diagnosis and treatment are carried out with the hands.

Osteopathy is a complementary therapy. It is used alongside conventional treatment to improve health.

Osteopathy treatment
Osteopathy focuses on manipulating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework.

Osteopathy takes a holistic, whole-body approach to healthcare. It uses manual ‘hands-on’ techniques to improve circulation and correct altered biomechanics, without the use of drugs.

An osteopathic physician does not concentrate only on the problem area but uses manual techniques to balance all the body systems and to provide overall good health and wellbeing.

LPG Lipomassage: Treatment Review

The Treatment

Celebrity fitness trainer Gunnar Peterson is the man behind Kim Kardashian’s amazing figure. While he advocates a strict regime of diet and exercise to shift weight, he endorses Lipomassage as a way to shape or tone the final bulges and get a more sculpted silhouette.

Designed by LPG Systems, Lipomassage doesn’t involve any surgery, in fact, it’s painless. Feeling more like a classic Swedish massage, it’s conducted with a handheld device that gently sucks and rolls flesh, helping to break down fat.

“Studies have shown that Lipomassage activates adipocytes (fat cells) via their receptors to trigger lipolyses (fat release). Lipomassage also breaks down fat accumulation, smoothes the dimpled aspect of the skin, increases fluid exchanges, and stimulates the fibroblasts, which are firming,” explains the LPG team.

Be warned, this isn’t a replacement for diet and exercise. While undergoing a course of Lipomassage, clients are asked to take regular brisk walks and eat breakfast before 6 am and dinner before 6 pm and to cut out cellulite-causing foods.

You need to commit to the program for optimum results, and be available for treatments, which should be taken three days apart.

The Results

I lost 5cm from my hips and waist after a course of 10 Lipomassage sessions. I looked forward to the treatments because they felt just like pampering massages and the downtime was good for keeping my stress levels in check.

To maintain these results, my therapist recommended I book in for regular maintenance treatments every month.
