With experience osteopaths develop specialised sensory wisdom, in the same way a connoisseur of wine will develop a highly perceptive sense of smell and taste. Experience plus in-depth anatomical knowledge refines and informs the osteopath’s sense of palpation and ability to manipulate the body in more subtle and considerate ways. For this reason osteopathy is a non-invasive process that respects the natural laws of healing.

Bones and muscles provide structural clues to functional disturbances of the body’s tissues and interrelated organs. The osteopathic physician enhances the function (physiology) of the body by correcting mechanical (structural) stress. Whatever the condition is, however wide-ranging, your body will therefore benefit from treatment.
