OsteopathyOsteopathy

A natural medicine which aims to restore function in the body by treating the causes of pain and imbalance.  To achieve this goal the Osteopathic Manual Practitioner relies on the quality and finesse of his/her palpation and works with the position, mobility and quality of tissues

Osteopaths have highly developed palpatory skills along with extensive training in assessing and treating the body as a whole.  Pain that is felt in one area may be the result of a problem elsewhere

Every technique is designed to work with the body not on the body.  As such it is safe for all ages. There are numerous techniques used including myofascial release, joint mobilization, stretching, muscle energy, ligamentous articular strain, craniosacral therapy and many more.  Appropriate techniques are chosen based on what suits the patient best and will remove the restriction, treat the underlying problems and bring balance to all body systems.
