Osteopathy is a holistic manual therapy that considers all of the different systems of the
body to be interconnected, therefore working together as a functional unit. Osteopathy
looks for the cause of the problem, rather than focusing on only the symptoms.
Once the cause has been found, the osteopathic practitioner treats the dysfunction and ensures
