Osteopathy Kessel-Lo (Leuven)

Osteopathy


Osteopathy is a manual healing method that focuses on the entire human body and tries to address structural or functional problems of the body. On the basis of mild techniques and gentle manipulations, an attempt is made to re-enable the body to strive for health and balance. Typical of the work of an osteopath is that not only the area where the complaint occurs, but the entire body is examined. The cause of a complaint can lie elsewhere. An osteopath will map out all blockages and movement restrictions in the body that are related to the complaint. He searches for the cause of the complaint and treats it by means of manipulations, muscle techniques and mobilizations. The osteopath does not heal but encourages the body to heal itself. Equipment or medicines are not used. Osteopaths use an extensive practical knowledge of anatomy, physiology, neurology and pathology.
