Founded by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still in 1874, osteopathy is based on removing the causes of symptoms, which can be far removed from the symptom(s) itself. Through studying the interconnectedness of the human form, a practitioner approaches a whole person with a highly trained sense of touch and other tests to identify and treat restrictions and imbalances in the body. By removing these restrictions the body’s innate self-healing ability resumes.
Osteopathic techniques involve many different types of soft tissue and joint manipulation including myofascial therapies, muscle energy techniques and cranial osteopathy.
