Osteopathy is a holistic, manual system of healthcare based on the following principles:

*A human being acts as a complete dynamic unit of function including the concept and relationship of the mind, body & spirit

*The body possesses self-regulatory mechanisms, which are protective & self-healing in nature

*Structure and function are interrelated at all levels

*Rational treatment is based on understanding & utilizing these principles

Osteopathic Manual Practitioners identify, assess, and treat the body's structures and rhythms using a gentle, hands-on approach. This fundamental technique is called osteopathic palpation. Manual practitioners spend many years developing the very sensitive sense of touch they need to master osteopathic palpation.

Osteopathic Treatment

The osteopath will evaluate the patient to find imbalances and disturbances within the body, called somatic dysfunctions. These will present as: asymmetry, restricted or altered motion, tissue texture changes, and sensorial changes or tenderness.
