What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy was founded by American Andrew Taylor Still in 1874. Osteopathy is a recognized form of manual therapy which emphasizes the interrelationship between structure and function of the body. Osteopathic principles believe in the body’s ability to heal itself. Osteopathic practitioners diagnose and treat using manipulation of the patient’s bones and muscles.  Treatment is gentle, non-invasive and suitable for any age.
