Manual Osteopathic Therapy is a gentle, hands on, manual therapy that is drug-free and painless. Utilizing joint mobilization, muscle energy techniques and soft tissue therapy, along with cranial sacral osteopathic treatment and visceral manipulation. The combination of these extremely effective techniques results in an increased range of motion, increased fluid flow and decreased pain and inflammation. We see the body as a holistic unit, capable of self regulating and healing.

Range of motion and joint mobility are increased with Osteopathic Manual Therapy. Through releasing and relaxing tight muscles, relieving restrictions, stretching stiff joints and moving your joints through their natural range of motion, you will experience greater flexibility.
Fluid Exchange is essential to your health. Application of this principle in daily practice is fundamental to Osteopathy.
“Nothing in the world is as soft and yielding as water. Yet for dissolving the hard and inflexible, nothing can surpass it. The soft overcomes the hard; the gentle overcomes the rigid.” Lao Tzu – Tao Te Ching
As fluids flow and muscles stretch and joints are mobilized, pain is reduced. The easing of restrictions eases chronic pain. Stretching muscles and manipulating joints for better fluid flow reduces pain and inflammation.
The increased flow of fluids reduces inflammation which can be caused by lack of movement from chronic pain. Inflammation can be the cause of many health issues.
