Why Do We Speak of Osteopathy as a Science and an Art?

It is a science because it rests on developed studies of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and other sciences.

It is an art because Osteopathic manual practitioners must be able to feel (in osteopathic language we speak of listening) with their hands all the responses to diagnostic tests. They should interpret tensions before normalizing them.

In order to be more effective, their manual therapeutic work should be constantly modulating between the quantity and quality of their touch.
