Naturopathic Osteopathy Course
Naturopathic Osteopathy Course:
Osteopathy takes a holistic, whole-body approach to healthcare. It uses manual ‘hands-on’ techniques to improve circulation and correct altered biomechanics, without the use of drugs.
Manual techniques are used to balance all the body systems, and to provide overall good health and wellbeing.
Techniques include stretching, gentle pressure, and resistance, known as osteopathic manipulative medicine.
This course provides the basic techniques used by Osteopaths so that Naturopaths understand the principles of Osteopathy in order to help refer patients for osteopathic manipulations.
