Osteopathy opens “eyes” to meeting a person and not his illness!
Osteopathy perceives a human being through a biopsychosocial aspect and is built on very strong foundations created by Andrew Taylor Still. There is no space in this approach for reductionism or breaking up into single elements. The body is a unified wholeness and every change is a structure or function affects the entire body. Osteopathy as a discipline evolved substantially throughout the years; however, the underlying principles and concepts have not changed and remain valid. Perceiving human body as an integrated wholeness, patient’s careful observation, meticulous examination and well-though-out therapy give lasting and measurable effects.
What is osteopathy all about?
First rule: HUMAN AS A WHOLENESS
Second rule: STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION
Third rule: SELF-HEALING POWERS
Fourth rule: BLOOD SUPPLY AS THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR
Fifth rule: PATIENT, NOT THE ILLNESS
“An osteopath is only a human engineer, who should understand all the laws governing his engine and thereby master disease”.
Andrew Taylor Still
