What is Osteopathy? How does an osteopath think?
When I saw this amazing picture of a tree sculpture demonstrating the hidden young sapling uncovered in the mature tree it resonated with me.
In the human body, as it is in nature, our bodies grow & evolve over time from the embryo. The link to this perfect form remains, even though it's hidden from view.
As an osteopath , this is how we differ from other allied health professionals. We approach every patient as a whole person, not as a symptom or a disease. We look for that 'sapling' that is the health in each individual person and that is the platform from where we start.
"It is the object of the physician to find Health. Anyone can find disease"
Dr. Andrew Taylor Still Founder of Osteopathy
