PRINCIPLES OF OSTEOPATHY
In osteopathy there are 3 systems to be differentiated
In osteopathy, the CRANIOSACRALE SYSTEM includes the following areas of the body:
Skull, spine, pelvis, central nervous system and their surrounding membranes
In osteopathy, bones, joints, muscles and connective tissue are referred to as the parietal system.
In osteopathy, the VISCeral SYSTEM includes the following areas of the body:
Organs, Blood Vessels and Lymphatics
All 3 systems are interconnected on various levels and influence each other.
During the osteopathic examination & treatment, all 3 systems are taken into account and impulses are set that lead to the harmonisation of the entire system.
