Osteopathy for all

Osteopathy is a preventive and curative manual therapy that ensures the maintenance of health and mobility. Regardless of age or level of activity, osteopathy is for everyone: children, adults, pregnant women, athletes, aging people.

Principles

 The body forms a whole.

Everything is connected: organs, muscles, ligaments, and fascia. All tissue structures and physiology of the body are interdependent.

As soon as an area of the body loses mobility, it leads to a decrease in its functionality, and when one part is disrupted in its functioning, it affects other regions.

For example, you may have already experienced pain in the neck while you have a sprained ankle.

Self-regulatory mechanism

The body self-regulates. Cells regenerate and evacuate their waste when blood and lymph flow freely. The nervous system also participates in self-regulation.

Tissue compression decreases circulation and stimulation of nerves affecting the stabilization of different physiological constants (homeostasis).

For the healing process to be effective, it is necessary to ensure that the cells receive all the elements fluidly in order to fully perform their function.

 Techniques 

Osteopathy is based on gentle and precise manipulations whose effectiveness has been demonstrated by clinical studies.

These manipulations affect the musculoskeletal structures, organs and skull and reduce tension and rebalance vital functions.
