What Is Osteopathy?

In Classical Osteopathy, each session consists of a whole body approach to treatment. Functional changes made during one treatment will alter therapeutic findings as treatments progress, and your body begins to return to homeostasis. Hence, each session may address another piece of the puzzle. Osteopathic treatments help balance the body's systems by restoring motion to relieve pain, improve mobility, and stimulate the body's ability to heal itself. It is based on the understanding that when one part does not work well, the others have to work harder.

Osteopathic treatments have been proven to treat everything from Back and Neck Pain, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), and Asthma, to Gastric Reflux/Heartburn, as well as countless other chronic conditions. Osteopathic principles teach that treatment of the musculoskeletal system (bones, muscles and joints), along with the viscera (organs and related tissues) and craniosacral system, stimulates the recuperative powers of the body to fight the disease or chronic issues on its own, without the use of pharmaceutical drugs.

What Is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral therapy (also called CST or cranial osteopathy) is a method of complementary and alternative medicine used by craniosacral therapists, physical therapists, massage therapists, naturopaths, and osteopaths. A craniosacral therapy session involves the therapist placing their hands on the patients head, neck, low back, and abdomen, which allows them to tune into the craniosacral system and assess how the body is functioning.  By gently working with the spine, the skull and its cranial sutures, diaphragms, and fascia, the restrictions of nerve passages are eased, the movement of cerebrospinal fluid through the spinal cord can be optimized, and misaligned bones are restored to their proper position and function.
