What is osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a blend of art and science that was formulated more 130 years ago. It is a holistic, complementary system of medicine, the first to have received statutory recognition in England. Its most notable principles are of the unity of mind and body, the interrelationship between structure and function and its emphasis on treating the whole person.

The basic premise is that humans possess an inherent healing ability which maintains the systems of the body in balance. Symptoms of illness are considered to arise as a result of disruptions to this balance.

An osteopath corrects the dysfunction and re establishes favorable conditions so that the disorder does not arise again. This is achieved through approaching the physical (musculoskeletal and neurological), the psychological (mental and emotional) and the chemical (nutritional) environments that make up the body.

In this manner, an osteopath seeks to treat the causes of disease and establish the foundations of health, rather than focus on the mere removal of symptoms. A wide variety of conditions can thus find relief through osteopathy. It also benefits those wishing to enhance their performance and function at their optimum.
