A holistic way to improving your health.
What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a gentle and effective treatment for everyone, which emphasizes the body’s ability to heal itself. Osteopathic Manual Practitioners encourage this self-healing capacity through realigning the structures of the body.
This form of therapy is a principles-based approach towards assessment and treatment that considers the interrelationships between all systems of the body. These include soft tissues (muscles), hard tissues (bones), fluid mechanics, and the neurovascular supply to all areas of the body.
Osteopathic Manual Practitioners operate using the model that imbalances in the body’s structure contribute to the development of disease. Our role is to support the body’s healing by removing these imbalances, facilitating proper nutrition to, and drainage from, the body’s tissues.
Practitioners physically interact with the patient, moving their bodies through multiple ranges of motion, noting restrictions and asymmetries, and applying corrective forces as needed.
Conditions that may benefit from osteopathic care include, but are not limited to:
Acute and chronic pain
Recovery from injuries (new and old)
Digestive, circulatory, respiratory and endocrine disturbances
Improve body function, flexibility and mobility
