What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is an established recognized system of healthcare, founded by AT Still, which relies on hands-on contact for diagnosis and treatment.
Osteopathy respects the relationship of body, mind and spirit in health and disease; it lays emphasis on the structural and functional integrity of the body and the body's intrinsic inherent healing process
Osteopathic treatment is viewed as a facilitative influence to encourage this self regulatory process.
People frequently say: “Osteopathy? As an osteopath, you treat backs, don't you?” or “That’s bones, isn't it?” Well yes it is, but 'backs and bones' is really only how osteopathy is presented and perceived today.
A.T Still (the 'discoverer' of osteopathy, 1828-1917) said, “We say 'disease' when we should say 'effect'; for disease is the effect of a change in different parts of the physical body. Disease in an abnormal body is just as natural as is health when all parts are in place.”
