Osteopathy’s philosophy is based on the body’s ability to self-heal and self-regulate when free from any obstructions, restriction of motion or bony mal-alignment. With the complete knowledge of anatomy and physiology and their association with health and disease, an Osteopath can work to find the root cause of an issue, as opposed to dealing with just the effects, through manual adjustments. This helps to return the body to its optimum naturally.
Osteopaths find the root cause of the problem and treat through manual therapy. Classical Osteopathy is a gentle, non-invasive holistic approach to health care that treats the entire body. Through palpation I diagnose, I then apply manual therapy to treat the muscles, bones, nervous system and organs, helping the body to adjust itself back to its normal function.
