Manual osteopathy is a gentle, holistic system of health care that focuses on the body’s structure, in order to optimize functions. While manual osteopathy is best known for relief from daily discomforts. It also helps to optimize all of the body’s systems (including movement, digestion, sleep, and energy levels) manual osteopathy differentiates between symptoms and the cause of those symptoms.
Osteopathic Principles : The body is a unit. Structure and function are reciprocally inter-related. The body possesses self-regulatory mechanisms. The body has the inherent capacity to defend and repair itself.
Is Osteopathy Covered By My Insurance?
Most extended health plans do have coverage for manual osteopathy. It is up to each client to find out if their plan has coverage. Please refer to “Our Approach” page to see each practitioners association information.
How Many Sessions
And How Often ?

I learned a great
“I was told by my cousin to go see an osteo. A day after searching on google, I got to see her after some scheduling adjustments. Speaking of her, from first impression, she’s great. You can sense the passion she has for her field and helping her patients. I learned a great deal from my visit. Looking forward to my next visit to see how where I’m at physically and to get more advice and knowledge from her.”
