OsteoMed Practice of Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a system of diagnoses and treatment that addresses a wide range of complaints. It is not an ‘alternative medicine’, but a complimentary medicine that uses the same principles of anatomy and physiology as mainstream medicine.

Osteopathy is different from mainstream medicine as it uses only a ‘hands on’ approach to treat pain. Using different manual techniques osteopaths treat the musculoskeletal system to address the cause of pain, rather than the symptom itself: in this way osteopathy aims to prevent reoccurrence, as well as reduce your pain and symptoms of discomfort.

As musculoskeletal experts osteopaths are qualified to treat most musculoskeletal problems such as acute and chronic joint and muscle pain, neuromuscular conditions and headaches, as well as the symptoms of various medical conditions such as arthritis, digestive conditions and circulatory problems. By working with the muscles and joints, osteopaths aim to decrease inflammation, increase drainage of toxins via the lymphatic and venous systems, increase blood flow to allow better nutrition, and restore postural balance. Not just health, but optimum health.

Emma Martinot and Anna Nikova are the first fully qualified osteopaths in Sofia and in the whole of Bulgaria. They have both trained at the highly prestigious European School of Osteopathy in Kent, England. The training is a 4 year Masters degree (Level  7) which includes training in: neuroscience, clinical neurology, physiology, anatomy, pathology, pharmacology, and orthopaedic testing and general medical screening.
