Osteopathy is a system of assessment and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions. It is based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the neurological, musculoskeletal and visceral systems functioning smoothly together.  


The human body is a complex self-organizing biological system. After stress, a healthy body will try to reorganize itself back to its original layout. However, if there is altered neurology, biomechanical deviations, muscle imbalance or inappropriate environment, the body’s ability to recover may be jeopardized creating a dysfunction. 

A number of complex interacting factors, such as previous injuries, surgery, muscle weakness and illnesses can create a chain of dysfunctions.  In order to get the job done, the brain-body system develop compensation strategies (e. g. a weak muscle will be compensated by another stronger muscle taking over the workload).  These compensations usually involve less efficient motor programs which, in the long-term, overload other tissues and may predispose a segment to injury.

Untreated compensatory patterns can accumulate over time, increasing the stresses on the body, until, at some point, the system collapses. Then, a small physical or emotional stress may trigger a symptom, whether near or distant to the original dysfunction area. 

Our philosophy 


The core values of osteopathy are patient-centered, holistic, and grounded in a deep respect for the body's natural ability to heal itself and our role is to facilitate this healing process. These values include:

  • Holistic Approach: whole-person approach to healthcare, considering the physical, emotional, and environmental aspects of a person's well-being in addition to their symptoms.

  • Patient-Centered Care: prioritize the needs and preferences of the patient, and work collaboratively with them to develop an individualized treatment plan.

  • Empathy and Compassion: strive to create a caring and supportive environment that fosters trust, respect, and open communication.

  • Non-Invasive Treatment: emphasizes the use of hands-on techniques that are non-invasive and avoid the use of drugs or surgery whenever possible while respecting the value and need for those approaches whenever necessary.

  • Education and Prevention: empowering patients through education and prevention, helping them to understand how to optimize their health and prevent future health issues.


Osteopathic treatments employ a "hands-on" holistic approach focused on the primary cause of the problem and its compensatory patterns. It uses therapeutic manual techniques, such as physical manipulation, stretching and massage to improve the mobility of joints, relieve muscle tension, enhance the blood and nerve supply to tissues, and help your body’s own healing mechanisms.

Advice for your specific condition is also given. Appropriate self care recommendation is provided on exercise prescription, life-style, emotional and psychological well-being to promote health performance, prevent injuries and symptoms recurring.
