Osteopathy is a balanced and open-spirited view of
medicine that relies on both modern science and the wisdom of traditional
Based on straightforward humane principles, Osteopathy allows both practitioner
and patient to restore essential energy and balance through work on
the body and its tensions.
As the name Hands-On implies, it is a method using the therapist’s
hands as the unique tool of treatment. This overall, therapeutic approach
is based on several different medical disciplines, including anatomy,
biomechanics, neurology, physiology and pathology. As a result it requires
advanced studies prior to the specific training necessary to become
a Hands-On therapist.
As a therapist, I use my hands as instruments of exploration, diagnosis
and treatment. I use the full potential of these instruments and treatment
techniques as a vector, the best means of establishing a relationship
and articulating the desire to heal.
As part of your healing Osteopathy will go beyond the manifestations
of discomfort and disease to trace back to past traumas that in some
cases were never detected. Indeed, even a very minor physical or emotional
event can lead to a dysfunction that can manifest itself immediately
or surface much later.
Our particular vision of human health and well being is radically different
from the language to which we are accustomed. Diseases evoke disorders
affecting a specific part of the body. I consider each individual from
a global, therapeutic viewpoint, where “man is an entity”
well beyond the limits of a particular symptom.
In accordance with the Osteopathic philosophy, I will help you to “manage”
your own health so that “good health” is no longer considered
only the opposite of illness but rather as a high quality of life and
the opportunity to live it to the fullest.
