An Inner Approach to Cranial Osteopathy (PDF Book)
This book is for the current Cranial Osteopathic practitioner. It looks into Cranial Osteopathy from a more profound ‘inner’ approach to help the practitioner to understand Cranial Osteopathy from a deeper and broader perspective. The book starts by taking the reader on an ‘inner’ journey of understanding more about themselves as the practitioner, discussing the ‘osteopathic toolbox’, and the need to be ‘inner centred’ when diagnosing and treating. It then looks at aspects of diagnosis – of tissue and fluid states – giving the reader several ‘inner’ considerations which they should apply when assessing a patient. The book then looks at the whole body and using an ‘inner’ approach to assess and treat each area. Each chapter gives an overview of the relevant anatomy and discusses the osteopathic relevance and new ways of working. Case studies/clinical experiences are described and ‘hands on’ exercises, which can be accessed via audio files, are given for the reader to practise. These exercises should be done ‘at the treatment table’ and will prepare the reader to use the approaches described with their patients. The audio leads the listener through a ‘guided tour’ of the anatomy and explains the exercise while they use their hands to feel what the author is describing.This guide will help Cranial Osteopathic practitioners enhance their skills, knowledge and understanding to a much-advanced level.
