Alinear osteopathy

Manual Osteopathy is a very gentle non invasive, hands-on form of manual therapy that emphasized the treatment of medical disorders through the manipulation of the bones, joints and muscles. It focuses on identifying areas of restriction in the body and then uses specific techniques to restore motion to the area, affecting related structures (including nerves, blood flow, lymphatic flow) and by doing so support and stimulate the bodies self healing mechanisms to restore and promote optimal health. 

Alinear in Spanish translates into the meaning: To Align, which is ‘in alignment’ with the concepts of manual osteopathy, specifically the state of body alignment due to proper positioning or adjustment of parts, all in correct relationship to one another.
