What is Osteopathy?
The name Osteopathy, which comes from the Greek words “osteon” (bone) and “patos” (illness), is a very subtle manual therapy. It is considered as the art, the science or the technique to diagnose and treat body dysfunctions via a series of light massages with the purpose of improving the muscular-skeletal system.
The osteopath, using his hands a therapeutic tools, identifies the altered structures and normalizes them, freeing this way the natural circulation and allowing the organism to start a self healing process.
Any osteopathic treatment shall be established according to your own personal needs and will adapt as you progress.
A professional osteopath knows the limits of osteopathy and can advise the patient to run complementary checks or analysis or to consult another specialist.
