OSTEOPATHY INVOLVES THE STIMULATION OF THE BODY’S NATURAL SELF HEALING MECHANISMS.
Osteopathy is a primary healthcare system, complementary to other medical practices based on biomedical sciences. It takes a holistic approach to the body and internal systems. An important principle of osteopathy is the stimulation of the body's natural self-healing mechanisms.
Osteopaths treat the whole person and consider all aspects of the patient's life, enabling them to maintain optimum health. On your first consultation, your osteopath will compile a detailed case history, followed by a thorough examination. The main tool used for diagnosis and osteopathic treatment is touch. Analysis of your body's movements is also an important aspect.
