About Osteopathy

The American physician Andrew Taylor Still (1828 - 1917) is still considered today as the discoverer of osteopathy. Personal experiences and twists of fate led him to search for a new medicine that deviates from the customs of his time.


During this research, Still addressed a wide variety of approaches to thinking and processing. Among other things, he learned to reframe or was apprenticed to spiritual healers, spiritualists or magnetizers. It was a discreet question of whether, and if so why, these therapists had succeeded.


He intensely studied the anatomy of the human body over and over again. During this diverse preoccupation with the most diverse currents and sources, he developed the idea that dysfunctions of myofascial structures hamper circulation and nerve impulses and thus lead to diseases.


Andrew Taylor Still developed an extremely effective method of treatment based on this idea and called it osteopathy.
At the beginning of the 20th century, osteopathy finally arrived in Europe thanks to J. M. Littlejohn and he founded the "British School of Osteopathy" in London in 1917.
 

Definition of Otsteopathy

Osteopathy is an independent, holistic form of medicine in which diagnosis and treatment is carried out with the hands. The aim is to convert the osteopathic philosophy into a manual concept of diagnosis and treatment centered on the person and not on the disease. It is a holistic approach to get to the bottom of the complaints and treat the human being as a whole in order to stimulate the body's self-regulation.


The basic principles of osteopathy include the unity of the human body, the mutual dependence of structure and function, and the self-healing powers of the body.

Every organ, every part of the body needs great freedom of movement to function optimally. From the point of view of osteopathy, if mobility is restricted, tissue tensions and subsequent functional disorders occur. From the point of view of osteopathy, the body can no longer compensate for the sum of these dysfunctions - symptoms appear.
