Osteopathy is a therapy that utilizes massage and other physical manipulation of muscle tissue and bones in order to achieve mobility of the joints, relaxation of the muscles and reduction of musculo- skeletal related pain.
Osteopathic principles believe in the body’s ability to heal itself.
Its name derives from Ancient Greek “bone” (ὀστέον) and “sensitive to” or “responding to” (-πάθεια).
