Osteopathy is a comprehensive method based on extensive knowledge of anatomy, biomechanics, physiology, biology and human metabolism. Osteopaths aim to improve the body's overall healing system through physical manipulation of the body's muscle tissue and bones. The goal of an osteopathic treatment is to restore the structural and functional balance of the human body, and improve mobility and freedom of movement.
Osteopathy is for everyone. For pregnant women, infants, children, athletes of all ages, adults and seniors. For specific injuries and for general wellbeing.
Osteopathy is a patient-centered approach to health. It is guided by principles relating to the patient as a whole. The body is a self-regulating, functional unit in which function and structure are inter-related, and healthy tissues require proper circulation of all body fluids.
Skilled palpation and a detailed knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics guide the Osteopath to assess and restore balance within and between all the systems of the body; musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, neurological, cranial and visceral.
