Weight Loss

Focus Osteopathy believes that a healthy approach that is personally tailored and realistic is essential to helping you lose weight – and to keeping it off in the long term.

Does this Sound Familiar?

Trent knows that he needs to lose some weight. In fact, he would ideally love to be 10kg lighter. His weight causes his back to hurt, he is constantly tired and just generally feels unhealthy. Trent has heard about all the ‘Diets’ out there and is not in the least bit interested in these but just wants to be educated on healthy habits. Probably most pressing for Trent is that in 7 months he marry’s the love of his life. As if there wasn’t enough to research already…..now to find someone who can help.

The Approach

Every person has different food and exercise preferences, careers, lifestyle and genetic make up. So a ‘one size fits all’ approach will not work – each person needs advice that is tailored to their needs and requirements.

Some aspects that our Nutritionist will examine and consider include:

  • Simple and convenient weight management programs including our ‘Shake-it’ and ‘Detox’ programs
