- Practical information
Osteopathic treatment is suitable for people of any age – from newborns and children to teenagers, adults, women during pregnancy and elderly people.
The initial consultation starts with a thorough anamnesis. Depending on the patient’s problem and age, an osteopathic treatment might last between 30 and 60 minutes. The number of treatments and their frequency vary from case to case. Fees for osteopathic treatments vary according to their duration. A 45-minute session will cost about CHF 160.
Osteopathic consultations are usually refunded by health insurance companies for patients holding supplementary insurance that covers alternative medicine. In this case, there is no need for referral by a medical doctor.
As a holistic method, osteopathy has wide areas of application. The list below provides a non-exhaustive overview.
