The name Osteopathy derives from Ancient Greek ὀστέον (ostéon) meaning “bone”, and πάθος (páthos) meaning “pain, suffering”. Traditional Osteopathy is a natural manual therapy which aims to restore function in the body by treating the causes of pain and imbalance. The Osteopathic philosophy embraces the notion that the body is naturally capable of healing itself. Osteopaths work with the body to enhance this natural ability to self-regulate and self-heal.
Yes. In Canada, Osteopathic Manual Practitioners have to complete a diploma program and extensive training in manual osteopathic practice after obtaining another university level designation in the health field. Osteopaths do not provide surgery or prescribe medication, but can assess and deliver the gentle hands-on techniques based on the original Osteopathic philosophies. They rely on the quality and finesse of their palpation and work with the position, mobility, and quality of the tissues.
To have Osteopathy treatment, you will usually need to undress so that your Osteopath can see and manipulate your joints. They will then use their hands to locate problem areas and treat them using massage or manual manipulation.
During pregnancy, the body goes through a tremendous amount of changes (such as increase in weight, change in posture, hormonal effects of the softening of the ligaments, the position of the growing baby). These physical changes can put additional pressure on your joints, and the muscles of your spine and pelvis. Osteopathy during pregnancy helps assist the natural progress of pregnancy by helping the body adapt and align to the changes in the body as the pregnancy progresses. These treatments are done using safe and efficient techniques, with the comfort of the mother being the top priority.

Osteopathy focuses on facilitating the health of joints and muscles through non-invasive manual therapy, helping to strengthen the framework of the body, and acts as a complementary therapy alongside conventional medical treatment and medication.
