(Institute of Osteopathy)
Osteopathy manual medicine focuses on total body health. It treats and balances the musculoskeletal framework, which includes the joints, muscles and spine.
It’s aim is to influence the mobility of joints and the body’s nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems in order to obtain optimal health.
Osteopathy uses the body’s own natural ability to maintain itself, to help restore function, relieve pain, promote healing and enhance wellbeing.
