Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a science of healing which places an emphasis on the structural and functional integrity of the body. It relies on manual contact for structural diagnosis and treatment. Osteopathy is a client-centered, rather than a disease-centered, form of health care.

Osteopathic practitioners utilize a wide-variety of therapeutic manual techniques dictated by their understanding of osteopathic principles and the structural individuality of each client. Through manual manipulation, osteopathic practitioners are able to influence all areas of the body in order to optimize the body’s intrinsic self-healing and self-regulating mechanisms. Osteopathic manipulative treatment is used as a means of facilitating these normal mechanisms by addressing areas of tissue strain, stress or dysfunction that may impede normal neural, vascular, or lymphatic flow.

Our practitioners are all highly-educated in the study of Classical Osteopathy. They provide treatment based on their understanding of Osteopathic principles and not individual techniques. As such, the way in which they assess their patients and integrate patient management, duration, frequency, and choice of technical application, are distinctive aspects of their practice.
