Are you not familiar with osteopathy or want to know what “type” of osteopathy I practice?
These are relevant questions.
I practice the policy of “no pain” which means that I will prefer a slightly longer session, to faster techniques but which can be unpleasant. Considering that the approach of moving to a health practitioner should be encouraged in a society where performance sometimes takes precedening over health considerations, I try to facilitate this initiative by unloading it from everything. stress is not essential.
Regarding the type of technique I use, apart from the painful consideration I have no restrictions. I could thus use techniques called “structural” with the patient’s consent and if the need arises, but also other techniques given during national training such as fascia or cranial.
