What is Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a system of treating pain and disease that aims to restore correct mechanical functioning of the joints, muscles and other tissues. This results in rapid healing of damaged tissues and resolution of pain within the body. Osteopathy may involve manipulation and articulation (movement) of the joints through their natural range of motion; muscle stretching to increase joint movement and muscle length, and soft tissue massage to relax spasmed and tight muscles. This releases muscular tension and reduces pain, allowing you to move with greater ease.
