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).
