Definition


Etiopathy is an unconventional medical discipline based on the concept that the practitioner use only his hands to treat the patient. It is fundamentally very close to osteopathy, but is distinct in that it aims to treat symptoms over a longer term, through diagnosing their deeper causes. Moreover, contrary to osteopathy, etiopathy is not regulated, though there exists a national register of etiopathic practitioners.
