Osteopathy is both an Art and a Science.
The Science in Osteopathy is the study and understanding of human anatomy and physiology as well as pathology, embryology, and biomechanics. It involves putting together the rationale for how these anatomical structures and physiological processes are interrelated and how they impact the function of the body.
The Art of Osteopathy comes into play through the application of various manual therapy techniques in a manner where the practitioner is completely present and in-tune with their patient, in a constant dialogue with the tissues and goes beyond analytical thinking and requires careful practice and presence.
