What Is It?

Osteopathy, as it was originally intended, is a holistic, drugless manual system of Health-care.
Osteopathy is a “total body” system of manual therapy. Based on bio-mechanical principles, which use a wide range of techniques to treat muscular and skeletal problems and other functional disorders of the body.

Osteopathic manual practitioners assess and treat your body as a whole, because symptoms sometimes show up in a different part of your body from where the problem actually is there may be several factors contributing to the symptoms you experience. Practitioners go through many years of training to develop their highly refined palpatory skills. Osteopathic evaluation and treatment is based on this theory and as a result is unique to other forms of therapy. Osteopaths recognize the fact that the human body is self-regulating and self-healing and will strive for health if given a chance. The role of the Osteopath is to encourage this self-healing capacity though manual treatment-to convert the physical into the physiological.
