Manual osteopathy is based on 4 basic principles:
– Each structure in the body supports the body’s functions. If a structure is damaged, out of place, or not working properly, the body will not function at its best.
– The natural flow of the body’s fluids – lymphatic, vascular, and neurological – must be preserved and maintained.
– The human body is the sum of its parts. Its physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and cognitive systems don’t work independently -they work in harmony.
– When the body has no restrictions, it has the inherent ability to heal itself.
