Osteopathy is an independent, holistic form of medicine in which diagnosis and treatment are carried out with the hands. It gets to the bottom of the causes of complaints and treats the person as a whole. Our organism consists of countless structures that are all directly or indirectly interconnected. These tissue connections are created by so-called fasciae. They are thin connective tissue sheaths that surround every structure and together form a large body fascia.
Osteopathic techniques influence the body’s own self-healing and self-regulating forces. Diseases and disorders often arise because the body loses the ability to self-regulate.
I mainly treat with visceral osteopathy, a technique that affects and influences the organs and their function.

Visceral osteopathy is a branch of osteopathy. Visceral osteopathy examines and treats the internal organs and their surrounding structures for movement restrictions. Other sub-areas are cranio-sacral and parietal osteopathy.
