Osteopathy is a form of manual therapy that emphasizes the relationship between the structure and function of the human body. It follows the understanding that imbalances in the human structure contribute to, or are directly related to the development and/or maintenance of disease. It is a hands-on, manual treatment used to reduce pain, increase physical mobility, and improve the circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids.

Practitioners recognize that the human body is self-regulating and self-healing as they strive to facilitate health in their patients. They do this by employing a variety of hands-on approaches and techniques. Each osteopathic treatment is tailored to the individual patient and the symptoms they present.

Osteopathy acts as a complementary therapy alongside conventional medicine.

The first osteopathic appointment will last 45-60 minutes and will allow the osteopathic practitioner adequate time to listen and ask questions about the patient’s specific situation, their general health, other medical care they are receiving and then render an individualized treatment.  Following treatments will be 30 or 45 minutes in length.
