The goal of Osteopathy is to restore the body’s normal homeostasis enabling the body to defend and heal itself. Osteopathy is a total system of medical care that believes in the following osteopathic principles: The body is a unit, synergy between structure and function and that the body possesses a self-regulatory and self-healing mechanism.

MUSCLE ENERGY TECHNIQUES 

in a specific direction, and against a distinctly executed counterforce from the practitioner. Like many other forms of osteopathic treatment techniques, Muscle Energy Technique(MET) has been used as a successful osteopathic technique for many years. It aims to improve activity tolerance rather than merely providing symptomatic relief, helping patient to regain functional independence.

MOBILIZATION TECHNIQUES
( MOBS )

It is a passive movement, the goal of which is to produce a slide or glide. Mobilizations are usually completed at slow speed, sometimes with oscillations, and even with a “hold” or stretch. The purpose of Mobilizations are used to restore joint play that has been lost due to injury or disease.

CRANIOSACRAL  THERAPY

The goal of cranial osteopathy is to adjust the body’s physiology by restoring balance and optimal neuro-vascular flow surrounding the Central Nervous System and all of its autonomic centers. A study reports that cranial osteopathy is effective for decreasing pain and associated use of narcotics, improving functional status and decreasing symptoms.

VISCERAL MANIPULATION

Visceral Osteopathy assists functional and structural imbalances in the different organ system of the body including musculoskeletal, vascular, nervous, urogenital, respiratory, digestive and lymphatic dysfunction. Visceral Osteopathy releases adhesion and restrictions surrounding the specific organs of the body. It would also help revitalize a person and help relieve symptoms of pain, dysfunction, and poor posture.

SOFT TISSUE RELEASE THERAPY

Soft tissue mobilization employs a passive, gentle movement of the muscolofacial elements. Soft tissue mobilization may help restore independent mobility of muscles, fascia and skin in the areas of facial thickening and binding that occurs in response to deformity and injury.
