Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a manual therapeutic science which, although based on anatomy, biochemistry and physiology, does not involve the use of drugs but only specific manipulations and body maneuvers. In considering the organism as a whole entity, this discipline starts from the assumption that an alteration of the balance between structure and body functioning could compromise individual well-being. This is what an osteopathic treatment cures or prevents.

What is osteopathy

Osteopaths consider the individual as a whole: anatomically the connective tissue holds the body structures together, while physiologically the circulatory and nervous systems connect all body functions. Osteopathy is therefore aimed at those who have symptoms that affect the major body functions: locomotor activity, neurological, genitourinary, O.R.L., ophthalmic, digestive, cardio-pulmonary, psychic, occlusal. Osteopathic therapies, since they manually treat the mobility restrictions of the apparatus, can be practiced on patients of all ages and in any condition: pregnant women, newborns or athletes.

The notion of osteopathy breaks down the common beliefs that gastritis, tendinitis or rhino-pharyngitis can be cured only by seeking help from exclusive specialized fields. The purpose of this manual science is to help the individual to responsibly manage one’s own health for overall and lasting well-being. In other words, we could say that osteopathy really applies the old saying “to prevent is better than to cure”.

Osteopathy in Sports

Sporting activity is a privileged area of application for osteopathy as athletes subject their bodies to extreme stress that not rarely compromises their systems causing tendonitis, stiff necks or muscle tension. Athletes seek preventive support from osteopath in preparation for a match but also to recover following traumas. In these cases, assistance is always carried out in collaboration with the official medical staff.

Craniosacral Osteopathy

Craniosacral therapy osteopathy is an osteopathic technique that is based on the anatomical principle of existing sutures between the cranial bones allowing their mobility. W.G. Sutherland, founder of the technique in the 1930’s, discovered that skull bones movements occur in a harmonic way, alternating phases of expansion with others of contraction caused respectively by the production of the reabsorption of the cerebrospinal fluid.

This technique starts from the belief that cranial bones manipulation can positively affect the central and peripheral nervous system, obtaining positive effects on the tensions deriving from physical or emotional trauma. The craniosacral therapy treatment consists of small tractions, or light pressures, on the bony structures of the skull, spine, pelvis bones, diaphragms and fascial system, which allow access to the intracranial membranes and to the dura mater.

Osteopathy treatment: my Craniosacral therapy called Fascial Cranial Therapy

Driven by the desire to understand the root causes that afflict my patients everyday and being convinced of the psycho-physical-energetic combination of each individual, I developed a working method called Cranial Fascial Therapy. Based on the strength of decades of experience and on the basis of many “leading experts” that I had the opportunity to meet and follow, I have developed a simple but very effective technique that requires learning the individual’s hands sensitivity in order to understand the body needs.

My method focuses on the manipulation of the craniosacral system to treat pain currently present in any part of the body. By the power of a global approach, and thanks to manual means of diagnosis and treatment, I’m able to eliminate postural compensations and interference that compromise the harmonious functioning of the organism.
