What is osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a manual therapy, the only tools are the therapist’s brain and hands. Osteopaths take a close look at the overall mobility in the body (joints, fascia, muscles, bones and more) to understand what is wrong. Any restriction of mobility will cause pain, disorder or unwanted compensation. Osteopaths’ first rule is that life is movement.

Osteopaths work with a large panel of techniques, looking at patients in their globality and not solely their symptoms.
