Osteopathy Information:

Osteopathy, or osteopathic medicine, is the philosophy which recognizes the body's ability to heal itself and emphasizes the relationship between structure and function. There are four main osteopathic principles: the body is a unit, the body possesses self-regulatory mechanisms to repair itself, structure and function are reciprocally interrelated, and rational therapy is based on the first three principles.

Techniques of osteopathic treatment fall under these categories: active method, passive method, direct method, indirect method. Therapies include articulatory technique, balanced ligamentous tension, craniosacral therapy, counterstrain, HVLA, muscle energy technique, myofascial release, and more.
