Osteopathy is a widely curative medicinal therapy. Since its official foundation by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, osteopathic medicine has evolved to the present day, however, it has always been practiced in some form since ancient times.

After analyzing the health status of each client; respecting the general principles of osteopathic medicine, and with the knowledge of human anatomy and its biomechanics; Osteopathy uses a wide variety of manual techniques, also called manipulations, which are very effective and safe and that are intended for the normalization of different organic tissues in dysfunction (bone, muscle, nervous, fascial, or visceral)

Likewise, these manual techniques help to establish the proper relationships between the different parts of the body (mechanical, neurological and fluids) and maintain balance and overall structural integrity.

The osteopath establishes the spine as the main axis of the body.

Due to the responses of the nerve tissues of the cells to and from the bone marrow, they can both diagnose and effectively help in the healing of many different pathologies.

Osteopathy directs its efforts to release the blockages suffered by the body in its various systems.

The spine is a key element, both in diagnosis and in subsequent healing. Each vertebra is associated with a pair of nerves that leave the spinal cord.

These nerves carry specific information that can be collected through various tests and palpations, and that tell us what is happening in the rest of the body.

The various manipulations and manual techniques used in osteopathy help us to release these blockages, and in this way the body prepares for self-healing.

Manipulative techniques

The various techniques used in osteopathy to achieve a result that promotes healing are several:

  • The help of gentle movements to pull various structures, whether organic, muscular, articular, nervous, or connective tissue.
  • The repositioning of joints and vertebrae that are in dysfunction Various massage techniques for soft tissues.
  • A stretch of the contracted muscles is done.

Osteopathic variants

Estructural osteopathy

“Structural osteopathy” is the biomechanical basis of osteopathy and is more aimed at balancing the musculoskeletal and fascial system.

It serves to treat a wide range of dysfunctions. The problems of the musculoskeletal system can affect the normality in the nervous, fluid circulation and any part of the body, affecting the general health.

Mechanical problems can lead to joint and muscle aches, but also to internal organ conditions. Osteopaths work on the structure of the body to reach a state of harmony.

The rebalancing and maintenance of the body is therefore essential for good health.

Visceral osteopathy

Visceral osteopathy consists of a series of gentle but powerful manipulation techniques aimed at removing any fascial, muscular, respiratory or any type of blockage that is preventing normal functioning of the viscera. The therapist is trained in the same way to capture the tensions that break this balance and recompose the visceral gear with pressures in different directions.

Conjunctive tissues that surround organs and other body estructures could create adherences and ostheopatic disfunctions which, in time, can seriously worsen health. A bad breathing diafragmatic is also a common cause of diverse visceral pathologies. In this cases the osteopath labor is mainly consisting in giving the proper mobility  to the affected visceral system, by using the appropiate manual techniques

Cranial sacral osteopathy

Cranial sacral osteopathy is named for the whole that forms the skull, the vertebrae, and the sacrum; They form a perceptible movement unit.

And this is so since the osteopathy contemplates the so-called “primordial breathing” that this whole system exerts and that serves to carry the cerebrospinal fluid to the whole body.

The different functional blockages of this system result in osteopathic lesions that have to be treated with mild and gentle manipulations in different parts of said cranial sacral system.

Osteopathy is a holistic medicine

Osteopathy, therefore, treats the body in a holistic way. A visceral, muscular, joint or nervous pain may have its cause in another tissue in dysfunction. The source of the problem is therefore reached, be it structural or even emotional.
