Osteopathic Medicine began over 130 years ago and continues to grow and expand as we continue to gain understanding of ourselves and our many connections.
In my practice I use Osteopathic Principles and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine to find and engage the health in my patients, to increase movement, function and ease; to help my patients improve their self care, self compassion, and sense of well being.
Osteopathic Physicians are trained:
– to see and treat the whole person not just the disease
– to view the person as a unit of body, mind and spirit
– that the body is capable of self-regulation, self-healing and health maintenance
– to see and treat the individual as part of the family, the community, the society, and the world
– to see and treat based on interrelationship between structure and function
Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) is also known as Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT).
