Osteopathy is the practice of restoring motion to all parts of the body so as to regain healthy function. Osteopathy is a drug-free, non-invasive manual therapy that aims to improve health across all body systems by manipulating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework. Osteopathic treatment focuses on the joints, muscles, and spine aiming to positively affect the body’s nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems. This includes:

Joint and soft tissue motion

Cranial, visceral and nervous system motion

The normal flow of blood and lymph to ensure the delivery of nutrition and oxygen and the removal of toxins
Past injuries and chronically stressful circumstances can put a body in restrictive patterns of function which limit how the body can deal with daily stresses and new injuries. Osteopathic manual practitioners use safe, gentle and precise techniques to:

Restore motion
Alleviate strain
Reduce pain
Restore a restful state to promote healing and bring the body into a healthy balance

Osteopathic philosophy views the body as a living, biological and integrated functioning organism. Osteopathy also recognizes that the body is a dynamic form that is intimately integrated with a life force that expresses our vitality and zest for life. Osteopathy is uniquely positioned to understand the body in a modern medical perspective and yet offer a natural alternative to pain relief without using pills or needles. The holistic approach of osteopathy is unparalleled.

Soft tissue manipulation
