Osteopathy Manual Practice

Osteopathic Manual Therapy (OMT) is a precise manual therapy practice which employs gentle manipulations to treat the body.

Osteopathic treatment addresses the body as a self regulating unit, in which structure and function are interrelated on all levels, and where health requires proper and unimpeded distribution to the circulatory and nervous system structures.

The goal of treatment is to restore balance within and between the primary systems of the body; musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, neurological, endocrine (hormone), and digestive. This is achieved by assessing the body for areas of restriction or altered function, and applying treatment to promote proper alignment and function.

Treatment methods employed by Osteopathic Manual Practitioners are guided by refined palpation skills and a detailed knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics.

Osteopathic treatment is gentle and effective.
