Osteopathy In Victoria, BC

Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a patient-centred approach to health. The body is a natural functional unit in which function and structure are interrelated, and healthy tissues require proper circulation of all body fluids. Skilled palpation and detailed knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics guide the Osteopath to assess and restore the balance between all systems within the body; musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, neurological, cranial and visceral.
In health, the body seeks to maintain a balance within and between these systems. The Osteopath uses a wide array of manual approaches to reduce and resolve strains, stress and dysfunction in all body areas. The goal of Osteopathy is to remove restrictions to vascular, neural and biomechanical mechanisms and ultimately support the natural healing mechanism by promoting autoregulation. Osteopathy has roots in traditional indigenous medicine, bodywork and healing arts.
