What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a manual, hands-on treatment that is drug-free and non-invasive. It focuses on the health of the entire body by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal structures of the body and other body systems such as the lymphatic and circulatory systems.

An osteopath will consider your physical body, emotional health, how you move, and what you do when looking at your symptoms. They see the body as an interconnected system, and often, as a result, Osteopathy will have fewer side effects than other treatment methods.

Osteopathy aims to help the body to heal itself by loosening tight muscles, increasing joint movement, improving your lymphatic and circulatory function, improving nerve communication and organ function.

In osteopathic philosophy, it is believed that misalignment of the body’s musculoskeletal system can inhibit its circulatory, nervous and lymphatic systems, reducing its ability to heal itself naturally.
