Osteopathy was founded in 1874 by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still. Osteopathy is a non-invasive manual therapy that focuses on total-body health by treating and strengthening the musculoskeletal system, including muscles, joints, connective tissues, bones and the spine, the craniosacral system and the viscera.
Dr. Still's idea was that the human body was much like a machine, one that would function well if all its parts were in proper mechanical relationship. The principles of osteopathy is such that the body is one functioning unit, that with the proper care it is able to self-heal, and that when the body's structure (anatomy) is balanced, other bodily systems (physiology) are able to properly function, and vice versa.

Once I arrived at my appointment, Jaime was reassuring and comforting while maintaining an unmistakable air of professionalism and poise. She fully explained to me the function sand purposes of manual osteopathy, while also asking questions about what types of issues I've had in the past and my pain levels. The process that followed I can only describe as comfortable, relaxing and refreshing in a way which I had never experienced. Once Jaime was finished I felt an immediate sense of looseness and relief - exactly what I had been looking for.
