Osteopathy is a drug-free, non-invasive, manual therapy that focuses on total body health by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework, which includes the joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and the spine. Its aim is to positively affect the body's nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems. Osteopathy considers the wider impact context of the patient including their medical history, medication interactions, diet, occupational and hobby stressors.
Osteopathy is a unique holistic (whole person) approach to health care. Osteopaths do not only concentrate on treating the problem area, but use manual techniques to balance all the systems of the body in order to provide overall good health and well-being. Osteopathy is a government-regulated profession that has been validated as safe and effective by the NHS and the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE). Osteopathy uses the western medical model as its frame of reference which means that it views health from the same perspective as orthodox western medicine but philosophically pays greater attention to the whole person rather than the individual’s component tissues.
