Osteopathic treatment is a holistic approach that involves the identification, assessment and treatment of the body’s structures using a gentle, hands-on approach.
This fundamental technique is called osteopathic palpation.
Its aim is to positively affect the body’s nervous, circulatory & lymphatic systems and regain an overall balance in the system. Joint manipulation may also be an integral part of Osteopathy.
The different types include:
– Structural osteopathy
– Craniosacral osteopathy
– Visceral osteopathy
