What does Torben and osteopathy actually do?
The osteopath's role is to alleviate pain and improve the patient's function and mobility, Osteopathy is a form of homeopathic medicine which treats the body’s musculoskeletal system by treating not just the symptoms of the patient,
but looking for the root cause of their medical problems. It promotes complete body health by diagnosing and treating the muscles, tendons and joints with the goal of improving the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems.
The therapy is a distinctive whole body approach that balances all of the body’s systems to provide overall positive health.
It utilises nutrition and lifestyle modifications rather than medications and surgeries to effect changes in a person’s health. Many osteopaths have specialties in paediatrics, internal medicine, family medicine or gynaecology.
The holistic approach of osteopathy is well recognised and accepted world wide. The philosophy of osteopathy is based, in part, on the belief that the body has a built-in self-regulatory system and is able to repair itself.
Osteopaths are of the opinion that the movement of body fluids is critical to health maintenance and that nerves play
and important part in this body fluid movement.

Fit tip : Break down the big picture, look again and ask what else does this mean, be empowered by your emotions, choose to see everything and make it work for you, look at everything & remember the good & the bad mindset is on the same shelf, the questions you ask yourself determines what you think about and what you think about determines how you feel and ultimately this process is entirely up to you.
Makes sure that you look at the whole picture & break down all the elements of what you do & achieve along the health & fitness journey, so that you don't filter & magnify any negatives as a totality of all your hard work.
It's good to have a time frame around your goals so why not go one step further & make it a "S.M.A.R.T goal" Specific. Measurable. Achievable. Realistic & Time based.
When you break it down like this, there is so much more you gain & learn heaps more about yourself,

The amount of sleep a person needs changes during their life, from just after being born to older age:
•Infants require about 16 hours a day
•Teenagers need about 9 hours on average
•Most adults need 6 to 9 hours a night for the best amount of sleep, although some people may need as few as 5 hours or as many as 10 hours of sleep each day
•Women in the first 3 months of pregnancy often need several more hours of sleep than usual
Fitting everything into an already overcrowded day can be like trying to jam a pizza box into a garbage bag. It may fit, but something got to give.
Much of the time, what’s giving is sleep. Instead of sacrificing a good book, a favourite television show, or a few extra minutes of social networking, people have found a way to stretch their days by stealing from their nights.
Tips for better sleep
•Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day — even on the weekends!
•Exercise regularly. Try to finish exercising at least five to six hours before bedtime.
•Don’t eat a lot close to bedtime. Food can give you a burst of energy.
•Avoid bright lights right before bed, including the ones that come from the TV or the computer. Sleep in a dark room. •Darkness tells your body it’s time for sleep.
•Sleep in a slightly cool room. If you can't control the temperature, try using fewer blankets or dressing lightly.
•Follow a bedtime routine. If you do the same things each night before bed, your body will know it’s time for sleep. Take a •warm bath or shower. Or drink a glass of milk.
•Wake up to bright light. Light tells your body it’s time to get up.
•Listen to your body. If you’re feeling tired, go to sleep. If you can’t fall asleep within 20 minutes of going to bed, get up and do something else until you feel sleepy.
•Avoid caffeine. That means cutting back on coffee, soda, chocolate, and energy drinks — or at least trying not to have any late in the day.
•Don’t nap for longer than 30 minutes or take naps too close to bedtime.
•Don’t stay up all night studying. Try doing a little each night instead. If you pull an all-nighter, you may be too tired to do well on your test.
•Set aside time to relax for about an hour before bed. Turn off your cell phone and your computer! If your tasks have you worried, write them down to get them off your mind.
