What is osteopathic manual therapy?

Osteopathic manual therapy is body work that is done while fully clothed by using my hands to manipulate the soft tissues of your body. Soft tissues include muscles, fascia, tendons, skin, etc. Soft tissue manipulation is especially helpful for aligning bones and for organ health.

Bones can be manipulated and aligned in a few ways. One method entails putting you in a particular position and then asking you to push a part of your body a certain way so that your own muscles pull the bone into place. 

Organs are manipulated to increase fluid around them to keep them slippery, to slightly adjust their position, to decongest them when needed and to increase blood flow and fluid exchange so they can function properly.
