What is Manual Osteopathy?

Traditional Manual Osteopathy is the holistic and dynamic assessment and treatment of the individual. The goal is to restore vitality to the organism, and facilitate the body to heal itself.

The 4 Principles of Manual Osteopathy:

1. Structure governs function, and function governs structure.

2. The rule of the artery is absolute, meaning healthy circulation of fluids within an area is paramount for tissue health.

3. The body is a functional unit, and all systems are interconnected.

4. The natural auto-regulation of the organism meaning the body has the ability to heal itself.

History

The history of Osteopathy dates back to Kirksville, Missouri, in the midst of the American Civil War. There, Andrew Taylor Still (1828 – 1917), a medical doctor and surgeon, was on a quest to find answers, longing to effectively treat deadly systemic and orthopedic diseases and injuries, such as meningitis, war wounds, and gangrene. Throughout his life, Dr. Still was able to consistently reproduce positive results with his manual treatments that adhered to anatomical structures. Until his death, he insisted he did not create or discover anything. According to Dr. Still, Osteopathy has always been present within nature.

In 1892, Dr. Still founded a teaching facility in Kirksville, Missouri, where he was able to train an extensive following of Osteopaths, including female practitioners, despite it being a time of extreme patriarchy. Before his death, he requested that his proteges continue the work by expanding and researching the practice of Osteopathy, which is exactly what has happened and continues to this day.
