What is Manual Osteopathy?

Manual osteopathy is a form of alternative medicine that uses hands-on techniques to assess and treat various physical issues throughout the whole body. Possible techniques that could be used are soft tissue/myofascial remodeling, osteo articulation/ joint manipulation (not using any high velocity thrusts), cranial sacral, and visceral manipulations. Manual Osteopathy is based on the belief that the body’s structure and function are interconnected, and that by manipulating the musculoskeletal system, various health issues can be addressed and improved.

The Benefits:

Manual Osteopathy has numerous health benefits including:

  • Improved Mobility: enhance joint mobility and flexibility, making it easier to move and perform daily activities.
  • Muscle Relaxation: relax tense muscles, reducing muscle stiffness and discomfort.
  • Enhanced Circulation: by improving blood flow, manual osteopathy may aid in better oxygen and nutrient delivery to tissues, promoting healing.
  • Posture Correction: assists in correcting posture issues, which may alleviate related pain and discomfort.
  • Stress Reduction:  induce relaxation, helping to reduce stress and tension.
  • Balanced Nervous System: by working on the musculoskeletal system, manual osteopathy may contribute to a more balanced nervous system.

Your certified therapist will begin your treatment by assessing your symptoms, pain, or injury. Once your therapist understands your needs, they will tailor a Manual Osteopathy treatment plan for you.
