Osteopathy does take time for you to get the full benefits. The manipulations and recommendations you get from Sarah Beer are designed to treat the root cause of the problem and not just the symptoms. That being said, depending on your own specific circumstances, you may or may not get immediate relief. In some cases after an initial treatment session you may feel a little sore similar to after a rigorous workout at the gym. As your body adjust to the treatments, both acute and chronic pain will subside.
