Osteopathy, or osteopathic medicine, is based on the belief that most diseases are related to problems in the musculoskeletal system and that structure and function of the body are related.
The musculoskeletal system is made of the nerves, muscles, and bones all of which are interconnected and form the body’s structure.
Osteopathy was founded in 1874 by Andrew Taylor Still, he believed that every disease or illness began with structural problems in the spine.
Long nerves connect the spine to various organs in the body.
According to Still, when there is a problem with the spine, the nerves send abnormal signals to the body’s organs.
Still called these spinal problems “osteopathic lesions” (“osteo” for bone and “pathic” for diseased), and created osteopathic manipulation techniques (OMTs) to treat them.

Osteopathy in the center Elohim is a holistic healthcare approach that emphasizes the treatment of medical disorders through the manipulation and massage of the musculoskeletal system. It’s based on the principle that the well-being of an individual depends on the harmonious functioning of their bones, muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue. Osteopaths use a wide range of hands-on techniques to improve circulation and correct altered biomechanics, without the use of drugs. These techniques can effectively alleviate a variety of ailments, including back pain, headaches, and repetitive strain injuries. Osteopathy is a patient-centered discipline that takes into account all aspects of the patient’s lifestyle.
These treatments, he believed, would return the nerves to their normal function and allow the blood to flow freely throughout the circulatory system.
With structure restored, the body’s own natural healing powers would be able to restore full health.
Osteopathy also pioneered the techniques that have become known as craniosacral therapy, which is now practiced in different disciplines.
Craniosacral therapy is the gentle manipulation of the bones of the skull to restore balance to the whole body.
