Osteopathy is a form of drug-free, non-invasive, manual medicine that focuses on total body health by treating and strengthening the viscera (organs), cranial system, as well as the musculoskeletal framework. Its aim is to positively affect the body's nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems.
This therapy is a unique holistic (whole body) approach to health care. Manual Osteopaths do not simply concentrate on treating the problem area, but use manual techniques to balance all the systems of the body, to provide overall good health and well being.
Dr. Andrew Taylor Still established the practice of Osteopathy in the late 1800's in the United States of America, with the aim of using manual "hands on" techniques to improve circulation and correct altered bio mechanics, without the use of drugs.

A treatment plan is formulated by understanding the relationship between the structure of the body and how well it functions, and knowing the connections between all the tissues, fluids, organs and systems of the body.
