Stretch for Life
His online osteopathy service, Stretch for Life, is innovative. It brings knowledge and understanding to help you on a journey of self-healing. While a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing, Tim goes to great lengths on this website to explain, and show with 3D animation, how the body functions and the various triggers that can cause pain and discomfort. He has produced a series of easy-to-use stretching systems that combine osteopathy, yoga, martial arts and common sense suitable for all ages and fitness levels to use. These systems have been proven in his private practice. While there are many options on the world-wide-web that offer so-called health remedies, you can confidently trust Stretch for Life, as it is medically and professionally based. Any websites we link to have been carefully vetted to ensure the knowledge is valid and your health is in trustworthy hands.
Stretch for Life takes a holistic view to health so you will read articles on many conditions that affect the young and old. Arthritis, for example, can affect all ages including children. Pregnancy is a big area that we will focus on - diet during pregnancy, pregnancy pain and how to relieve it. Antenatal and post-natal conditions are common maternal problems Tim Judd deals with. Cranial osteopathy to help babies settle and sleep is another focus of this website.
Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine which facilitates healing by focusing on how the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, circulation, connective tissue and internal organs function as a holistic unit. Using skilled evaluation, diagnosis and a wide range of hands-on techniques, osteopaths can identify important types of dysfunction in your body. Osteopathic treatment uses techniques such as stretching and massage for general treatment of the soft tissues (muscles, tendons and ligaments) along with mobilisation and manipulation of specific joints and soft tissues using direct or indirect techniques.
We believe healing occurs only when there is trust and respect between the practitioner and the patient. Integrity, compassion and excellence in professional standards and customer service ensure we deliver the very best health care and education to our patients.
