About Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a faculty of medical sciences that recognizes the complexity of human body through the knowledge of its anatomy, physiology and biomechanics. At the core of Osteopathy are principles that acknowledge the interrelation between all systems of the body. Osteopathic approach to treatment and assessment considers the role of musculoskeletal, visceral, and neurological components as well as the craniosacral mechanism in the expression of health of the individual.

One of the aspects of Osteopathy is a gentle, précised, sensitive touch aiming to assess restriction of joints and other structures of the human body. The pressure which Osteopaths will use while evaluating physical body has to be just right to perceive the motion of the structure. That touch is gentle and yet strong enough to sense the motion. This osteopathic sensitivity is also applied to a corrective force exerted on the body while performing an osteopathic adjustment or other osteopathic corrective techniques.

What distinguishes Osteopathy from other health sciences is the underlying philosophy of seeing human body through the perspective of interconnectivity of body, mind and spirit. Although the osteopathic treatment is a physical treatment, it is a venue through which other aspects of our life can be affected and accessed.

Osteopathy is an art of manual therapies that look for the health of the individual and treats the dysfunctional aspect of the body in relationship to all other systems of the body. Osteopathy is a manual medicine that uses gentle manipulative technique to re-establish wellbeing and the vitality of the body.

Osteopathy practiced by Health Spectrum osteopathic practitioners Annya and Vlodek is a classical, traditional hands-on approach to re-align bio-mechanical forces of the body and enhance inherent vitality of the tissues to help with pain and dysfunction.
