Osteopathy is treatment based on principles and techniques which focus on the relationship between the body’s structure and function.

Principles of treatment include:

  • The body functions as one – body, mind, & spirit
  • The body is capable of self-regulation, self-healing, and health maintenance
  • Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated
  • Rational treatment is based on these principles

It is manual therapy that:

  • Removes tissue restrictions
  • Alleviates pain
  • Addresses postural concerns
  • Promotes renewed vitality and well-being

The osteopathic practitioner understands the body’s internal response to the external.

KNOWLEDGE OF THE BODIES NATURAL RESPONSES TO TOUCH (examples: fast or sustained, deep or light pressure, warm or cool) AND RESPONSES TO MOVEMENT (examples: slow, fast, direction, long or short lever to induce movement at a specific point) are applied with intention to provide ease throughout the body allowing homeostatic mechanisms to obtain and maintain a balanced state providing relief of symptoms.
