What is MOT-Manual Osteopathy

Manual Osteopathy is a form of complementary and alternative medicine that focuses on the assessments dysfunctional patterns are recognized that reside in the body causing structural and functional disruptions that may present as pain or disease in the body.  These disruptions are treated through various techniques. These may include Muscle Energy Techniques to balance musculoskeletal restrictions (skeletal and muscle), joint and fascial mobilizations aiding in releasing "stuck joints" by engaging with soft tissues and fascial manipulations that help increase range of motion along with Myofascial remodelling that allows to release of fascial restriction/adhesion to increase circulation. Lympathic techniques aid to enhancing fluid flow releasing congested toxic areas to improve immunity and Cranial Sacral techniques to improve the Primary Respiratory Mechanism which includes mobility of cranial bones, skeletal structures, meninges (connective tissues). central nervous system and circulation of all fluids. Visceral techniques aid in increasing mobility and motility (function)  of the organs of the body.  We believe that the body has the ability to heal itself and that manual interventions can help facilitate the process.
