Osteopathy is a manual form of holistic therapy including cranio-sacral therapy that treats the entire individual including infants, children, adolescents, athletes, and adults.

The focus of Osteopathy is to find the cause of the pathology or pain, and to treat all the systems and their connections in the body. Osteopathy restores normal structure and movement, and facilitates the body to return to a state of health.  

Osteopathic Manual Practitioners use palpation and manipulative techniques to restore balance to muscles, joints, nerves, connective tissue, and internal organs.

Fertility Services

Osteopathy is a gentle and safe therapy that can help prepare the body for an optimal environment for conceiving. If medical reasons have been excluded, functional disorders can compromise the fertilization of the embryo. Osteopathy seeks to restore any structural or biomechanical imbalances that may cause dysfunction of the reproductive systems in both men and women.
