Definition of osteopathy
Osteopathy is a general manual therapy, in which the therapist diagnoses exclusively with his hands and defines an individual treatment for each patient. This form of therapy helps the body to recover the healthy, while removing functional disorders and blockades, because where movement is prevented, illness sets in.
The basis of osteopathy is simply: movement is life.
Osteopathy is built on important fundamental principles:
- The fundamental meaning of movement for all bodily structures
- The inextricable unity of the human body
- The interplay and interaction from the structure and the function
- The ability from our body to the self-regulation and self-healthy power
To realize this particularly successful healing method, it is required to know exactly the anatomy, the physiology, the pathology and also to have an extensive training over years in therapeutic skills.
