Osteopathy is a manual therapy where the osteopath uses his knowledge in anatomy and physiology to understand and fix the patient's pain or functional disorder. A detective for the human body, he will investigate all the systems to find and fix the root cause of the pain or functional disorder, because the pain doesn't necessarily point to what's causing it. This is all done using a holistic* and non-invasive approach. Osteopathy treats a wide range of pains and functional disorders for adults, children, babies and during pregnancy.
