Osteopathy is a form of manual therapy performed after years of professional training and clinical practice. It is based on an in-depth understanding of the structure and function of the body. This knowledge is applied to all diseases, disorders and dysfunctions in order to find and address the root cause of the issue.
Using manual palpation to assess the mobility, position and vitality of the tissue, restrictions can be determined anywhere in the body. Areas of swelling, tenderness, tension, thermal differences and quality of mobility are evaluated. Treatment seeks to identify the cause of the tension and uses gentle non-invasive manual therapy to unlock the body’s natural capacity for self-correction; improving function, increasing mobility, enhancing circulation and restoring health.
The therapist releases restrictions by locating tensions, following the tissue into specific positions and engaging internal rhythms and forces while continuing to follow the tissue through a series of movements. Treatment may include; osteoarticular adjustment, Visceral normalization, Cranial-sacral, Muscle energy and Fascial release.
