Osteopathy

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a form of manual medicine using a 'hands-on' approach to address the structure of the body and the way it functions.

Osteopathic treatment alters how the elements of the body - skeletal, joint, muscular, neural, connective tissues, internal organs and circulatory system function and interact as a singular holistic unit.

Each treatment entails a unique interaction between patient and practitioner aimed at addressing the immediate needs of the patient in view of instilling a more permanent and long-term change that optimises and maintains wellbeing and good health.

It is the aim of the osteopath to deliver patients with both treatments and the knowledge to maintain their health as independently as possible.
