An osteopath aims to identify health rather than disease in order to augment the body’s own healing mechanism. This process can help distribute fluids and free forces, realign structures and ultimately promote cooperation and harmony inside the body. Because its intention is to treat the underlying cause osteopathy relieves both immediate symptoms and prevents long-term detrimental effects.
