What is our goal in osteopathy?

To restore balance in all five systems of the body, thereby restoring the animal's vital force or Chi. The whole body, including TMJ and hoof balance, should be moving and operating in harmony, with no restrictions, creating balance in the animal. Osteopaths also evaluate the animal's social environment, living quarters, nutrition and occupation, since these factors can also affect the well-being of the animal.

What are our treatment tools?

Our hands and eyes are our tools.  Our treatment toolbox includes cranial sacral work, myofascial release, visceral manipulation, joint mobilizations and various manipulation techniques.

Osteopathy can and does compliment other alterantive approaches as well as traditional veterinary practices.
