Manual osteopathy is a holistic system of health care that focuses on treatment of the body’s structure in order to optimize it’s physiological functioning. Treatments help to relieve pain and promote ideal functioning by utilizing a combination of massage, joint mobilizations, stretches, and exercises to encourage re-alignment. This approach to health care focuses on treating the patient, rather than treating the disease. The major benefits of manual osteopathic treatment include reduced pain and improved movement, posture, breathing, and/or digestion.

- Back/neck pain
- Hip pain
