Osteopathy is a type of manual therapy. It is a non-invasive, drug-free method of treating an array of health concerns. It was originated in 1874 by Andrew Taylor Still. He established the first school of osteopathy in the United States. ​The guiding principles of osteopathy are: that the body is a dynamic unit of function (and not merely a collection of parts); the structure and functions of the body are interrelated; and, the body has an innate self-regulating capacity. ​


A beautiful aspect of osteopathy is that it aims to work with the body to support it's own self-regulating capacity rather than imposing invasive treatments on it. Osteopathic treatments aim to assist the body in returning to healthy equilibrium. If structure and function are interrelated, then treatments that return the body's structures to balance can improve function in many ways. ​If this sounds like a good fit for you, click the button below to get in touch with me to book an appointment.

Movement is Health

I'm a big fan of adding more movement to our days. My yoga teaching background leads me to suggest yoga (or yoga-adjacent) stretches and movements to complement osteopathic treatments. If you come in for a treatment, don't be surprised if I suggest some movement "homework" to incorporate into your life. Ask me about the complimentary classes available on this site 😉
