What is manual Osteopathy?

Manual Osteopathy is based on the principles that structure governs function, that our body functions as a unit, and that it is self-healing and self-regulating.  This gentle, hands-on therapy emphasizes on the treatment of various disorders and conditions through the use of mobilization, muscle energy techniques and soft tissue therapy of the bone, joints, muscles and organs, to create balance within the body.  

 

Manual Osteopathy can be used to treat specific conditions such as headaches and migraines, lower back pain, pelvic pain, hip and knee pain or just for general well being.  It is highly effective for increasing range of motion, deceasing pain and improving mobility and function.
