Overview

What is an osteopathic treatment?

Osteopathy is a holistic approach to the body. Thus, osteopathy considers that all the physical and psychological pains can have an impact everywhere in the body (accidents, bad postures, stress etc.). Thus, during the treatment, the therapist will seek to restore the harmony of the musculoskeletal system and each of the other systems.
