Sarah Stranan DO (Aus), Osteopathic Practitioner
Sarah Stranan is an Australian trained Osteopathic Practitioner who is now practicing at the Vancouver Osteopathy Center in Kitsilano. Sarah believes in providing individualized Osteopathic care with the specific aim of improving health and quality of life.
Osteopathy is a holistic manual medicine which aims to restore optimal health through a combination of hands on therapy, exercises and lifestyle advice. As an Osteopathic Practitioner Sarah structures her treatments around the philosophy that believes the body is a unit in which structure is inherently related to function. This makes Osteopathic Practitioners unique as they treat the individual not the symptoms to improve the overall function and health of the body.
Sarah also believes the body is always trying to return to a state of health and it has strong homeostatic mechanisms to achieve this. The stressful lifestyles that are required by modern living often impinge these mechanisms and Osteopathic treatment aims to remove these impingements to self healing and allow the body to return to normal functioning.
