Osteopathy & Drug-Free Pain Relief
Bruce Harper Osteopath
Bruce Harper ND DO is a specialist in Osteopathy. Osteopathy is a very gentle, non invasive muscle, joint, fascia, ligament, visceral (organs) release treatment used to correct imbalances and misalignments of the neuro (nerves) and musculo-skeletal structure. Structure Governs Function.
Osteopaths treat common ailments such as, headaches, migraines, neck/shoulder and back/pelvic pain, legs and arms, abdomen, ribs and chest pain. The whole body is considered and treated as a ¿Unit¿ with all parts working together as one entity. The bottom line of Osteopathy is the ¿Rule of the Artery¿, meaning the blood flow is vital for the body to heal itself with its own healing power via the blood/lymph circulatory systems.
Optimal blood flow is essential for your body to heal itself and maintain normal body functions in all the systems of the human body. Cranio-Sacral Therapy (CST) predominantly deals with correcting the flow of the body fluids, especially the cerebro-spinal fluid (CSF), using an extremely soft touch to gently release tension in the membranes of the spinal cord and brain capsule ( Cranium or Skull).
CST also normalises the flow of blood and lymphatic fluids by stimulating flow restriction in the muscles, organs, glands and the general circulatory systems. All age groups, from newborns to the elderly can benefit from the many Osteopathy treatments including Cranial Osteopathy.
