Osteopathy is a medicine that needs to be tailored to each practitioner's hand. I see osteopathy as a resource to restore mobility where it disappeared.
LIFE IS MOVEMENT!
Restoring mobility to segments (vertebra + rib) lets the body recover balance and heal itself. In theory, as long as the body can adapt itself, it handles it with neither compensation nor pain.
An osteopathy session is a variety of techniques including muscular-skeletal, visceral and cranio-sacral osteopathy performed gently while listening to and respecting the human being, the animal and their soft tissues.
