What is osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a medical discipline in which the body is examined and treated with the hands.
Functional disorders and mechanical linkages of the body are the focus of attention.
These are based on knowledge from the fields of anatomy, physiology, neurology and pathology.
Through a comprehensive individual questioning and examination, the actual cause of the complaints or the clinical picture is identified and specifically treated.
Due to the holistic approach, all areas and structures of the body are taken into account.
Blockades and movement restrictions that stand in the way of recovery are resolved. After the treatment the body needs a certain time to react to the treatment techniques.
Between the treatments we wait up to one week.
Osteopathy has its origins with the American physician A. T. Still (1828-1917), who is also considered the father of chiropractic and manual medicine. The words osteo (bone) and pathie (suffering) stand for his conviction that the mechanics in the body can be the origin of illness.
Today, empirical medicine is combined with modern scientific knowledge to create a modern osteopathy. Thus everything is critically questioned and there is a clear willingness to integrate these new findings.
Our therapists measure themselves against the highest standards and stay up to date through continuous further training.
This is checked annually by the Erfahrungs-Medizinisches Register (EMR) and further recertified. This allows us to settle accounts with the major supplementary insurance companies in Switzerland.
