What is Osteopathic Manual Therapy?

Osteopathic manual therapy is based on the principles that the body is a whole, not a collection of pieces, and that optimal alignment and structural integrity allows the body to heal itself. Osteopathic manual practitioners must have an excellent working knowledge of anatomy (structure) and physiology (function) in order to remove any restrictions to your ability to move effectively. The improvement in movement then optimizes blood flow, lymphatic drainage and nerve signalling ability. This translates to a reduction in symptoms, such as reduced pain, better sleep patterns and increased energy and vitality.

“We look at the body in health as meaning perfection & harmony, not in one part but in the whole”
