What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy views the person in a holistic way and recognizes that the wellness of each part of a person affects the whole person. Likewise, the wellness of the whole person affects each part.
Manual Osteopathic practitioners understand that by improving imbalances in the body, we can assist the body to restore itself and improve resistance to disease causing influences.
Using hands on manipulative therapy, your Manual Osteopathic treatment restores the balance of soft tissues like muscles, organs and nerves. The treatment plan also aims to return dysfunctional joints to better alignment. The emphasis is on the structural relationships and the interaction of tissues. The goal is a return to better function, mobility, strength and better wellbeing.
