Osteopathy is a form of natural medicine which uses physical manipulation including stretching and massage in order to increase mobility, relieve tension in muscles, and improve blood flow to tissues in order to help the body heal.

While helping the physical body heal, it also aims to improve the flow of energy throughout the body, releasing tension and energetic blockages for greater emotional wellbeing.
