The circulation of the body is a very tuned process. It's driven mainly by the heart and the diaphragm and assisted by movement.
With circulation we mean both arterial (oxygenated and leaving the heart to the body) and venous blood (non- oxygenated and returning to the heart).
By helping the realignment of the body we reduce the resistance of the blood to circulate. Additionally we can work on important junctional and restrictive points of the main blood vessels to help with poor circulation.
Poor circulation is one of the main factors for poor healing/ recovery.
Lympoedema is one the many situations that can benefit by osteopathy regarding the circulation.
