Osteopathic Medicine


Osteopathic Medicine is a “whole person” approach to integrative medical care, recognized as a pioneering force in Wellness Medicine dating back to the early efforts of Andrew Taylor Still, MD, DO in the 1870s.

Hands-on osteopathic manipulative treatment.

Guided by training that identifies the musculoskeletal system as a key element of health, we use hands-on osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) to focus on your body’s interconnected system of nerves, muscles, and bones. OMT is typically used to treat various sources of muscle and joint pain and conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, and additionally can be used to treat asthma, sinus disorders, migraines, and menstrual pain – often all without medications or more invasive medical procedures. 

Part of a holistic, self-empowering approach to optimal health.

At Marin Natural Medicine Clinic, we incorporate osteopathic medicine into our holistic approach to your health. We work with you hands-on and then as a teacher or “care guide” focusing on preventive measures, prescribing not only appropriate medical treatment but also helping you to change unhealthy behaviors and to take charge of your own well-being.
