Osteopathy is a manual form of healing that addresses the close relationship between the structure and function of the body.
With an in-depth knowledge of anatomy and physiology, Osteopathic Manual Practitioners work to unravel patterns of dysfunction in the body, in order to reduce pain and improve body function. They encourage a better physical environment for self-healing and greater vitality, through the application of manual treatment to the framework of the body (e.g. the bones and muscles).
Osteopathic manual treatments use a gentle, integrative approach, and treatments are unique to each individual. With every treatment, your Osteopathic Manual Practitioner will observe postural dysfunctions and motion restrictions of the joints and soft tissues. They will then use a variety of treatment tools in order to improve these restrictions and postural forces through the body. The treatment will emphasize these osteopathic principles:
The body is a dynamic unit of function (body, mind, and spirit)
Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated
The body is self-healing and self-regulating
Anyone can benefit from manual osteopathy including those experiencing chronic or acute pain, muscle tension or spasms, nerve pain, postural imbalances, tension headaches or migraines, TMJ dysfunctions, poor circulation, edema, digestive issues, inflammatory conditions, painful periods and pelvic pain, sports injuries, postural/work related strains, or anyone suffering from general stress.
