Manual Osteopathy
 
What is Manual Osteopathy?:  It is a natural medicine that seeks to restore the function in the body while treating the areas of pain. The Osteopathic practitioner works with the position, the mobility and the quality of the mussel tissues. 
 
It is based on four principals: 
 
1. The structure governs the function. (Each structure in the body supports the body’s functions.)
2. The role of the artery is absolute. (The natural flow of the body’s fluids – lymphatic, vascular and neurological – must be preserved and maintained.)
3. The body functions as a unit. (The human body is the sum of its parts. Its physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and cognitive systems don’t work independently -they work in harmony.)
4. The ability of the body to autoregulate. (When the body has no restrictions, it has the inherent ability to heal itself.)
 

The Osteopathic practitioner will work to identify the problem and reduce swelling and improve mobility to promote healing for all ages.
