Osteopathic Manual Techniques
Osteopathy addresses the whole person and embraces the idea that structure dictates function.
The gentle, hands-on approach aims at the root of the problem to clear both symptoms and their cause.
Osteopathy removes obstructions and restores proper functions of the musculoskeletal system, nerves, arteries, veins, lymphatics, and the cerebrospinal fluid.
Muscles attach to bones and when the bones are misaligned, the function of the corresponding muscles is also affected. Furthermore the spinal column and skull house the nervous system, a control center to the entire body. Proper alignment of those structures will translate to better functioning of the nervous system and the corresponding organs.
Osteopathy begins with a thorough review of your health and the structures of your body to assess your current and past health and your primary concerns. These treatments can be as gentle and relaxing as they are rigorous.
