TAO OSTEOPATHY STORY
“Returning to one’s roots is known as stillness. This is what is meant by returning to one’s destiny.” Laozi
Delivering the highest standard of Osteopathic care requires an understanding of the concepts of health, mobility and circulation to their deepest levels.
Medical security, safety and mastery of manual techniques, skillful identification of the root cause of the dysfunction and benevolent intent all contribute to the patient’s journey to recovery.
TAO Osteopathy’s philosophy is rooted in traditional medicine and martial arts practice (Hungkuen Kungfu and Muay Lao/ Muay Thai), as well as in the spirituality of Buddhism and Taoism. Core concepts of Traditional Chinese Medicine are essential in the diagnostic approach. Canadian Osteopathy includes structural, cranial and visceral manual techniques, as well as soft tissue release and functional methods to treat and alleviate pain.
Osteopathy is a manual medicine taking into account the entire human body. Treatment includes manual techniques on the musculoskeletal, cranial, cardiovascular, digestive and urogenital systems. The osteopath facilitates mechanisms of regulation and self regulation, to restore the proper functioning of nervous, vascular and biomechanical mechanisms.
TAO Osteopathy is the healing branch of the charity organisation Traditions, Arts & Origins, which teaches traditional arts to empower youth and communities.
