Osteopath in London Ontario
Cranial osteopathy was discovered, and developed by Dr. Southerland back in the early to mid 1900's in the US. Cranial bone and sutures have rhythmic movement and that this is guided by the pulsation of the cerebrospinal fluid which nourishes and protects the nervous system. Cranial osteopathy uses gentle manipulations to release restrictions in the cranial bones to bring the body into harmony and balance; movement is life, obstruction and no motion is a disease stage.
Any restriction in the body or in the cranial bones will affect this rhythmic motion, causing imbalances in the body, and thus affecting your health. Anybody will benefit from cranial osteopathy from infants to the very elderly, to the frail and weak, this gentle approach will have a profound effect affecting body functions and harmony in the whole body. Most people experience a sense of relaxation and energy flow in the body.
