Founded in the late 1800’s by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, Osteopathy is a drug free, non-invasive form of manual therapy that aims to improve health between all body systems. Osteopathic Manual Treatment entails gentle mobilization of all joints and soft tissues throughout the body, and encourages the body’s natural ability to self heal and self regulate. Osteopathy emphasizes the interrelationship between structure and function of the body, and follows the theory that imbalances in the human structure contribute to or are directly related to the development and/or maintenance of disease. Osteopathic Practitioners formulate their treatments based on a set of principles that aim to reduce or remove restrictions and balance asymmetry in order to help restore normal physiological function of the body.
