Osteopathy Meets Orthodontics

The intersection of the cranial osteopathic perspective with orthodontics is critical and revolutionary!

Two dental appliances, two different orientations…
both have common goals.

Patient awareness is mandatory
when making these orthodontic decisions.

Epilogue

My cranial Osteopath
does not need a scan or a lab test to confirm
the dysfunction remaining in the left quadrant of my palate, ear and jaw
– the consequence of the orthodontic procedure in California twenty-eight years ago.

He can ‘feel’ it – and I am most aware
that he is very aware!

Amazing

East, West and South

East to  Florida, West to Washington and California, and South to Brazil.

The hamular resection failed
to alleviate my symptoms. 
And the seeking and searching began again.

Evolution of Equilibrium

Another twenty-five years of wondering pass.

And I uncovered what amazing changes can evolve under cranial osteopathic care as the body is awakened and allowed to speak
that which is unconscious and beyond words.

Orthodontic Ordeal and Detour

“The Road Not Less Travelled”

The California Ortho adventure began in the early 1990’s. This journey was short and sweet
into Orange County
 – 45 minutes by air from Phoenix. 

The freeways were a maze.
A Santa Monica referral experience was
a-mazing.

My coming West to California actually ended up taking me further East.

Reflections

The Silence
The Seeker in the Silence

I failed to recognize that these medical events
were my initiation into exploring different ideas…

my first steps in seeking the Beyond
and venturing into the Unknown…

into the world of the cranial Osteopath.
