Osteopathy Manual Osteopathy is a hands-on, noninvasive, non-aggressive, drug free treatment that assesses and treats imbalances within the body. This treatment focuses on the imbalances within the musculoskeletal system and looks at the body as a whole, searching for the root of the problem.Manual Osteopathy utilizes three main techniques; joint mobilizations, muscle energy techniques and soft tissue therapy. Other techniques may include cranial sacral therapy, visceral manipulation, strain-counter-strain, myofascial release, and lymphatic drainage. Most techniques are performed seated or laying down on a treatment table. Patients remain clothed during treatment. Manual Osteopathy is safe and effective in treating people of all ages.
