Osteopathy is a philosophy of healthcare that acknowledges the living body as a self-renewing, self-recuperating, self-regulating system which maintains health throughout life.

Osteopath’s hold to the commonsense principle that a patient’s history of illnesses and physical traumas are written into the body’s structure.

In treatment, we use a highly developed sense of touch to palpate (feel) the patient’s “living anatomy” (i.e. flow of fluids, motion of tissues, and structural make-up).

The Osteopath’s job is to “set” the body up to heal itself. To restore this normal function, a variety of techniques are used to promote movement of the bodily fluids, eliminate dysfunction in the motion of the tissues, and release compressed bones and joints.

In short, the areas being treated require proper positioning to assist the body’s ability to regain normal tissue function. Our objective is to enable the metabolic, embryonic forces to make changes from within towards a more harmonious relationship with itself & with its environment..
