The practice of Traditional Osteopathy favors a hands-on approach to access and understand dysfunction, normalize function, and restore health.

Osteopathy recognizes that motion must be present for the free expression of health as it is reflected in our physical, emotional, and energetic body. Motion extends beyond the physical skeleton and muscles, and must be present within the smallest recesses inside us; the spaces between organs, lungs, vessels, neural sheaths, membranes, and fascial connections that provide interconnectedness throughout our bodies. When free motion of any structure is lost or inhibited, whether by infection, injury or prolonged states of emotional overwhelm, we begin the process of stagnation, compensation and inflammation. From this point, we are vulnerable to dysfunction and disease processes. Osteopathy seeks to understand the entirety and connectedness with-in the human form, to find the “source of suffering” and attend to dysfunction in a holistic process of care that restores motion so that we may be properly animated and ambulated on all levels.

A complete and Holistic approach to Healthcare must consider all aspects of human physiology and human potential. Having a thorough understanding of Anatomy, Physiology and the Biomechanics of how the human body moves and how motion interrelates to health, gives Osteopaths an advantage in finding and correcting the primary source of dysfunction and supporting the process of the restoration of health.
