"Osteopathy is the knowledge of the structure, relation and function of each part of the human body applied to the correction of whatever interferes with its harmonious operation."
- George V. Webster, D.O., 1921
Osteopathy is a non intrusive manual therapy that is based in anatomic and physiological palpation
Osteopathy is Based on four principle
Structure governs function – you must have proper alignment in order to have optimal function
The role of the artery is absolute – proper circulation and movement of the bodies fluids (lymphatic,vascular and neurological) must be preserved for health to be maintained
The body is one functional unit – looking at the mind, body, soul as a whole and how they interrelate to achieve optimal results.
The body has the innate ability to heal itself – when the body as a whole is free of restrictions the inner physician will regulate and heal its self on all levels.
