Osteopathy was founded by Dr. Andrew Still. a medical practitioner of Baldwin, kansas, USA in 1874. The Philosophy of Dr. Still embraces the concept of the unity between the living organism's function and structure of the body. These are know as the osteopathic principles, which are;
- A human being is a dynamic unit of function, including the concept of body-mind and spirit
- Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated at all levels.
- A human being has inherent self-defending, repairing, and healing mechanisms.
Although each Osteopath Manual Therapist is unique, my treatments are consistent on the three osteopathic principles. The treatment begins with an assessment. When I feel that I have received enough information through hands on palpations, and special test, I will explain the results with you (the client). If you're in agreement with my explanation, we will then proceed with the treatment. The focus of Osteopath treatment is to treat the problem rather then the symptons. Therefore, I treat many areas that can relate to the specific problem area, including many different systems of the body (the cranium, the visceral, the muscular and finally the fascia system).
Depending upon your particular conditions, you may feel some soreness initially. This is a typical response and means your body is adjusting. After two days, if your soreness increases in pain, please contact me immediately.
