When to come and see us

Check ups and maintenance treatments are always important. Similar to a car, it is cheaper and better to fix our bodies before they go wrong and subsequently compromise other parts of our bodies.

An osteopath might be likened to an engineer, a watchsmith of the organism, who not only evaluates and treats the causes of dysfunction, but also verifies preventively all the necessary mechanisms and systems of our physiology, which rule the balance and health of a Human Being.
