Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

 

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a form of manual healthcare which focuses on how the anatomical structures and systems of the human body work together as a holistic unit.
This involves looking at the bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves, blood vessels, and internal organs to determine what may be causing your symptoms.
