What is Osteopathy?

 

Osteopathy is a holistic alternative medical approach that looks at the whole person, not just symptoms. The method is based on the clinical experience, that many complaints and diseases are caused or influenced by a change in the function of body tissues, such as muscles, fascia, joints, organs, arteries etc. 

 

The aim in Osteopathy is to detect these changes in function, using the sense of touch: with their fingers and hands, Osteopaths identify changes in blood flow, the mobility of joints, an increased tension of muscles, fascia, organs, and more. 

An osteopathic appointment starts with a detailed conversation with the patient, in which the entire medical history is revisited. This is followed by an extensive examination.

Treatment also occurs with the hands, by changing the mobility of joints, organs, muscle tension, fascial movement etc. Some techniques are quite soft and supple, others involve local pressure or movement or even small so-called impulses.
