What is osteopathy?

Osteopathy, also known as the osteopathic approach is a manual therapy discipline. Its main goal is to help restore the human body’s natural equilibrium and harmony. Osteopathy is a discipline based on the anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics of the human body. The client is intervened with a global approach, so rather than simply to intervene the symptom the body is to intervene as a whole entity. Clients of all ages can benefit from osteopathy.

The osteopath, with the use of different techniques, will intervene the body on many different levels such as articular, visceral, cranial and fascial. This approach differentiates itself from others because it is aimed at discovering the cause of the problem rather than simply focusing on the symptoms. The key is to keep the different structures of the human body mobile. A loss in mobility causes functional as well as circulatory and/or nervous limitations. This loss of mobility can cause repercussions locally and possibly distally by forcing the body to compensate in other areas in order to maintain its equilibrium.

The osteopath’s job, therefore, is to make sure that the different elements of the body remain mobile in order to allow the body to function properly and remain healthy.
