Osteopathy is manual medicine based on two fundamental ideas: on the one hand, it holds that human beings are a single whole in which body, mind and spirit are an indissoluble unit.

It is a therapy based on the principle that all organs, viscera and the backbone are reflected on the soles of the feet and palms of the hands.
The principles of Shiatsu are the same as those of acupuncture as it is also based on traditional Chinese medicine. The basic difference is that instead of needles, only hands are used for pressure.
Metamorphic technique is based on reflexology. It works by stimulating the spinal reflex points on your feet, hands and head.
It is a technique developed from osteopathy that focuses on the cranium, spinal column and pelvis and very subtly uses fasciculations on the muscle chains to achieve structural balance.
