What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is an independent holistic manual treatment method, which is based more and more on medical evidence. It is grounded on the insight that smooth and healthy functions of life are depended on the undisturbed mobility of the body’s structure. Osteopathy promotes and assists the patients self-healing powers through case specifically selected manual osteopathic techniques based on the principles of osteopathy. The inclusion of all human systems (structural/functional, visceral system and craniosacral system) is what gives osteopathy its holistic approach.
Dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system, like spine, joints, muscles, sinews and ligaments, are treated in the structural/functional system of osteopathy. A large number of manual techniques are applied depending on options and individual needs.
