The idea behind Osteopathy
The consistency of the total.
Man is a unit in which structure, function, mind and spirit are mutually interdependent. Everything is interrelated.
The body tends to self-regulation and self-healing when it comes into contact with pathogenic processes.
When the nerves, blood vessels and lymphatic system can operate unhindered then search the body for that healthy balance.
By releasing the restriction of movement osteopathy promotes the self-healing of the body.
It is, as may be understood from the above text, all about balance.
