What is osteopathy?

Osteopathy, recognized by the WHO as a complementary medicine, is a therapeutic system that is based on a deep knowledge of the structure and functioning of the human body and uses manual techniques for both diagnosis and treatment.

The well-trained and experienced osteopath acquires the ability to detect small imbalances in the patient’s body and treat them gently so as to normalize their functioning, thus restoring health.

Osteopathy takes into account the patient as a whole and works by enabling self-regulation and self-healing processes. When we talk about structure, we not only refer to the osteo-articular system, but to the entire body and its circulations, including also the viscera and the central nervous system.
