Osteopathy

Regulated in France since 2007, osteopathy is a health profesion that uses natural, sustainable and holistic care methods.

"Osteopathy, in a systemic approach, after osteopathic diagnosis, conductsmobilizations and manipulationsto treat the osteopathic dysfunctions of the human body.
These mobilizations and manipulations are intended to prevent or remedy the dysfunctions in order to maintain or improve the state of healthof the patient."

- JORF n°0289 from 14/12/2014. Annex 1

In short, an osteopath diagnoses and treats many health disorders.

The human body possesses multiple systems (digestive, cardiovascular, nervous, immune, etc.) that interact to attain homeostasis. The proper functions of these systems can be disrupted by many causes :trauma, stress, poor diet, poor posture, improper movements or by recognized pathologies.
Osteopathy is a practice of manually acting acting on the body's tissue mobility by making precise and adapted gestures to improve the patient's health.


The formation

A 5 years degree allows the osteopath to acquire a torough knowledge of anatomy, pyhsiology and pathology.
These allow her to offer safe care for all.

The approach

The osteopath's role is to take time to understand the patient. She listens and examine in order to better target the cause of symptoms that the patient may experience.
The "systemic approach" of osteopathy consists in performing specific gestures to treat these symptoms.
