Taking a detail-oriented, yet holistic approach to the body is the underpinning of craniosacral osteopathy. This richly illustrated guide, which focuses on the jaw joint, TMJ and mouth disorders disorders, and the facial skull, will help you understand how specific dysfunctions arise, but also how they interrelate to wider patterns of dysfunction. Further chapters cover palpatory procedures, including examples of best practice, and guidance in training your palpatory perception.
With precise anatomical diagrams to illustrate each craniosacral technique, this resource provides a strong foundation for any successful cranial osteopathic practice.
