Osteopathy is a well-established, evidence-based manual therapeutic discipline founded in the United States in the late 19th century. Based on a holistic approach to health and well-being, osteopathy is a remarkably effective form of treatment that is now practiced around the world.

Manual osteopathic practitioners study the structure, relations and functions of each part of the human body. This knowledge is applied to the manual assessment and treatment of pain, disability and illness. The manual osteopathic practitioner aims to help return the troublesome structures of a patient’s body to a place and condition where they can function optimally.

(after George V. Webster, D.O., 1921).

"With a correct knowledge of the form and function of the body and all it's parts, we are then prepared to know what is meant by a variation in a bone, muscle, ligament, or fibre or any part of the body, from the least atom to the greatest bone or muscle. By our mechanical skill, preceded by our intelligence in anatomy, we can detect and adjust both hard and soft substances of the system. By our knowledge of physiology we can comprehend the requirements of the circulation of the fluids of the body as to time, speed and quantity, in harmony with the demands of normal life" A.T. Still, founder of Osteopathy
