Osteopathy takes a holistic, non-invasive, whole-body approach to healthcare which uses manual (hands-on) techniques to improve health by manipulating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework without the use of drugs or surgery.

The main focus is on joints, muscles, and spine, as well as the body’s nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems in order to improve function and overall health.

Osteopathy is a complementary therapy and is used alongside other treatments to improve health.

Techniques include stretching, manipulation, gentle pressure, and resistance of muscles and soft tissues. This therapy follows a belief in the body’s ability to self-heal and self-regulate.

“Manual osteopathic practitioners do not see themselves as healers, but instead as facilitators to health.”

The art of healing comes from nature, not from the physician. Therefore the physician must start from nature, with an open mind.
