Alignment of bones is an essential skill of the osteopath, manipulations done with expert skill and minimum force necessary to accomplish freedom of movement. Muscles need to be relaxed to perform safe manipulation. We believe massage is an absolute necessity for ease of manipulation and to maintain freedom of movement and healthy tissues.
