Osteopathy – a short introduction

    Osteopathy enjoys a steadily increasing demand for patients in Germany. More and more people are benefiting from the largely purely manual examination and treatment of the body. Osteopathy is a healing science that is uniquely composed of manual skills, science and philosophy. She understands man as an inseparable unity of body and mind and knows the interrelations of body structures. Instead of merely turning to the symptom, osteopathy looks for the cause of each disorder. Interactions between organs, connective tissue / fascia, musculature and joints as well as emotional influences and environmental factors are considered.  
In a comprehensive conversation, the osteopath records the health status of the patient. Examination and treatment are then almost exclusively with the hands. Tensions, blockages, congestion, irritations and other disturbances are found by targeted scanning of tissue and then resolved by targeted techniques. Osteopathy is used in the musculoskeletal system (pain in joints or back, sciatica, lumbago, whiplash, rehabilitation of sports injuries, chronic complaints, etc.), in the internal and urogenital area (indigestion, scars and adhesions, menstrual cramps, pregnancy and in the ear, nose and throat: headache, migraine, sinusitis, dizziness, tinnitus, TMJ problems and more). Especially in infancy and childhood osteopathy is often used due to the gentle treatment method. Osteopathy originated in the mid-19th century in America. While today she is practiced there as equals to conventional medicine, she is complementary in Germany.
