‘’The osteopath applies precise techniques of manual adjustment to restore optimal functioning to bones, muscles, fascia, nerves and organs. Once balance has been achieved within the organism, the patient’s symptoms are relieved. Preventative as well as curative, it is suited to all age groups. Should it become necessary, the osteopath will never hesitate to refer a patient to another health professional.’’ (From Ostéopathie Québec web site)
