Cranial Osteopathy

(Otherwise known as Craniosacral Osteopathy and Osteopathy In The Cranial Field (OCF)

Cranial Osteopathy is "a whole person approach to a patient...using hands-on techniques to manipulate the bones of the cranium and similar techniques to all regions of the body." (SCTFANZ ). It is introduced at undergraduate level and most Cranial Osteopaths have taken postgraduate courses.

Cranial Osteopathy began with the discovery by William G .Sutherland that the bones of the skull are joined in such a way as to allow small movements. and can be felt to respond to a slow rhythmic motion that is present throughout the entire body, independent to both breathing and heart rhythms.This is the rhythmic pulse of the secretion of cerebrospinal fluid, which nourishes and protects the nervous system.

This inherent motion is called the Primary Respiratory Mechanism (PRM). By lightly putting our hands over the skull and any other parts of the body, we can feel the quality and rhythm of the movement.

During Cranial treatment, subtle palpation merges into treatment as your osteopath encourages change. Although known as ‘Cranial’, this technique is used to treat the entire body to influence the Primary Respiratory Motion.

Cranial Osteopathy can be used on all patients.

Biodynamics of Osteopathy

What is 'Biodynamics'?

"A 'Biodynamic View of Osteopathy in the Cranial Field' has been developed by James S.Jealous D.O. The Biodynamic view of osteopathy recognises that the embryological forces that created the embryo, are also the forces of growth and development and the sustaining restorative forces throughout life." (www.Osteopathicstudies.com.au)

Respected embryologist Eric Bleschmidt's close study of the development of the embryo is an important basis for Biodynamics of Cranial Osteopathy. During early foetal development the patteern of cell multiplication and migration o cells of the embryo depends on the existence of chemical and electromagnetic zones of potential. After studying with Rollin Becker and Edn Lay,students of Dr Sutherland, American Osteopath Jim Jealous developed an integrated approach to treatment.

Very specific techniques are used touching the head and body to assist the persons aims to mobility and flexibility and improving our relationship of our bodies to the space we move within.

Visceral Osteopathy

This approach to the body uses manual techniques to directly help restrictions in the connective tissues of the body. It is a way of looking at the body in an interconnected way. We are taught to work directly on the organs and the fascial and circulatory tissue relationships.
