Osteopathy

Osteopathy is defined as a manual therapy

which deals with mobility restrictions that can affect all the different structures that make up the human body. Osteopathy is above all a manual, holistic approach that treats the whole person, not just a segmented body.

The 4 main principles of osteopathy are

1. Function unit: The body is seen as a whole If the organ is the site of a lesion, this will have repercussions on the whole organism.

 

2. The power of self-healing: whatever the situation, the body tends to balance itself. The body is always looking for a way to regain its balance naturally.

 

3. Relationship between structure and function: If the organ malfunctions due to external stress, the surrounding structure even at a distance can lose its flexibility and freedom of movement.

 

4. The artery is supreme: To function optimally, the body needs to be well nourished by the body's fluids and to evacuate waste products.

Osteopathic diagnosis is based on manual contact and listening to the body. The osteopath uses manual techniques to remove restrictions, free adhesions and restore the necessary good mobility in the body.
