Osteopathy is a discipline that considers humans from a holistic standpoint as the body functions as a unit. All bodily structures and tissues (joints, muscles etc.) operate mechanically and are linked together by the nervous system and the bodily fluids. Abnormal functioning of these and reduced mobility have consequences for the body as whole. It is only the appropriate interaction of all individual structures that enables the body to function properly.

The self-healing powers of our body help us remain healthy and recover from illnesses. Osteopathic treatments promote the natural healing process by restoring the mobility of all tissues and the circulation of fluids throughout the body.
