OSTEOPATHY

Osteopathy is a non-painful medical procedure that applies treatment with the hands. It considers the body as a whole. It rebalances the structures of the body and cures functional disorders by removing restrictions in the mobility of organs and tissues. It restores movement to the body’s structures and stimulates the body’s self-healing properties.
