How It Works

Osteopathy takes a holistic, non-invasive, whole-body approach to healthcare that 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 your body’s nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems, in order to improve function and overall health.

Osteopathy is a complementary therapy that 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 of health.”

Osteopaths take a more holistic approach, looking at the whole body and considering how different systems are interconnected, while chiropractors primarily focus on the spine and nervous system.
