Osteopathy is an adjustive manual therapy that requires an extensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology. It bases itself on several principles, amongst them being that the body and its systems work as a unit, and need to be treated as such.
Osteopathy does not simply treat symptoms; it addresses the root causes of the dysfunction by treating the body as a complete unit of function. A balanced body will allow for proper physiological functioning, thus promoting health and well-being throughout the multiple systems of the body. Osteopathy helps bring this balance about.
Osteopathy utilizes many manipulations that are common to all manual therapies, including massage therapy and physiotherapy. Treatment is done gently and slowly, is generally pain free and takes the entire body into account.
