WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?

Osteopathy is a manual treatment method and consists of the following three sub-areas:

  • Craniosacral Osteopathy: This involves the treatment of the skull bones, the spine with all articulated connections and the pelvis, as well as the membranous system. All areas of the body are connected to the spine through the nervous system. Structural and functional complaints of the body can be indirectly treated very gently using these techniques.

  • Visceral Osteopathy: This is the osteopathic treatment of the internal organs, blood vessels, lymphatics, nerves and the associated connective tissue. The principle of visceral osteopathy refers on the one hand to the mobility of the respective organ in relation to the adjacent organs and other structures of the body, on the other hand to the organ's own movements, as well as its supply and nerve innervation.

  • Parietal Osteopathy: Deals with the treatment of bones, ligaments, joints, muscles and fascia. It is important to recognize whether, for example, the tension headache is a symptom of tense muscles in the neck or is caused by a malposition of the foot and can therefore only be permanently improved if the body is treated as a whole.

The focus is less on the individual symptoms and more on the question of which structures need to be worked on so that the body can regain its inner balance and the self-healing powers are activated.
